Mine is a WWII edition, 11th, I think.

Were these on war-time paper, or are they all on thin paper? All the info is there, cost me ‘nuthin’ and is invaluable at times.

Paper is quite thin and of very good quality on my Machinery's Handbook of the same era. Its also the same for the 1950s 15th edition.

Another 5-year old thread.

I really think it would help if the "Latest Posts" listing would give the Original Creation date as well as the title-creator-topics info.

I boldly suggest that the author of the post that resurrected the thread from 2013 may not have cared, even if such information were there wink 2

A year ago I bought Edition 28 in paperback for £25.28 through Amazon. It was second-hand, but looked as if it had never been opened. Surprise was, it was dispatched from India. I see the current Amazon price for a second-hand paperback Edition 28 is now £27.46. These prices aren't bad, considering Edition 30 is now selling for £90. If you go for the paperback versions, treat yourself to a magnifying glass - that is if you have eyesight like mine!
