THIS “Handbook of Technical Instruction for Wireless Telegraphists” would more suitably be entitled a “Handbook for the use of Marconi Operators in Wireless Telegraphy,” because it deals almost exclusively with the methods and apparatus of the Marconi Company. It is divided into three parts: the first concerned with the elementary facts of electricity, the second comprising a couple of chapters on electromagnetic waves and receiving sets, and the third explaining the special appliances and systems of apparatus in use in the Marconi Company's installations.
