BBC Handbook 1928
This is a copy of the 1928 BBC Yearbook, the very first year of publication. It contains 382 pages, and has countless illustrations throughout the text  (one a drawing by H.M. Bateman), as well as many advertisements for contemporary radio sets and components. 

The 1928 edition contains many interesting articles, including articles on the proposed Regional Scheme, Broadcasting Transmitters, Children's Hour and the BBC studios then still at Savoy Hill.

The British Broadcasting Corporation produced this annual publication every year from 1928 to 1987, with the exception of a two-year break in 1953-1954. They contain much interesting detail on the British Broadcasting Corporation's technology and programming, as well as providing much interesting background on the state of broadcasting at the time they were published. The first two editions were published as "Handbooks", with the name changing from 1930-1934 to "Year-book". A change in format for the 1935 to 1937 editions was accompanied by another name change to "Annual", before reverting back to "Hand-book" for the 1938 edition and then "Yearbook" once again from 1943 !

In good gondition for age.
some wear to spine's corners but generally a good, clean copy.
