Collector Bookstore is a retailer of new books located in Leavenworth, Kansas. We specialize in price guides and reference books for the antiques and collectibles industry.

Volume 1:

This is the definitive account of the exciting decade when radio first entered the home and changed forever the way of life in America. It features the start-up stories of almost 150 different radio manfacturers in the United States and gives detailed information on the products they produced, making this an invaluable guide for radio collectors and historians alike. It includes rare photos of the factories and hundreds of pictures and reproduced magazine ads detailing their products.

Thousands of early radios are identified by make, model number and important features. The evolution of radio design is traced from crystal sets and one-tube "regens" to the first AC sets and superheterodynes.

Learn about the beginning of some of America's largest consumer electronics manufacturers like

  • General Electric,
  • RCA,
  • Raytheon,
  • Westinghouse,
  • Zenith
  • ... and others.

Volume 2:

The success of the first volume of this three-volume series has established author Alan Douglas as a leading authority on history of radio manufacturing and development in America. Volume two extends the wealth of information through an additional 31 manufacturers, providing extensive detail regarding their products and their manufacturing operations. Volume three will cover the field from RCA through Zenith.

Our modern electronic world is based on the developments of many early twentieth-century contributions outlined in this series.
