TILTMAN, RONALD F. - Television for the Home. The Wonders of "Seeing by Wireless".

London, Hutchinson [1927]. Octavo publisher's reptile pattern boards and dustwrapper (this with price marked out and some spots on the spine, a few small chips); xix106pp, eight photo plates. A little browning, rather good. ¶ First edition of maybe not the very first book on television but what must be the first television book in a crocodile skin cover. It came out within months of Baird successfully cracking the problem that a lot of scientists had been working on without result. Once that was out of the way the experts could get on with the important stuff: early in 1927 Professor D'Albe proposed a Ministry of Broadcasting to take "responsibility in matters of pronunciation, voice production, education, acoustics, music, drama, and illumination." Tiltman became Baird's biographer but the portrait of them together is a study in lack of interest if not antipathy.
