    As a retired microwave engineer I would be interested in the book. Why are you selling it ?
    $90.00 should be easier raised by selling something else. Just love old books and cameras.
    Too bad I am way up in Canada and can't buy it from you.

    I have an old edition of the book which makes the current edition expendable and it still fetches a fair price because it is still used in the classroom. The only other math/physics book I sold was my calculus book which I kinda regret but then again I have 2 other books on calculus (albeit at a much higher level). It isn't all that advanced of a book title is "Advanced Engineering Mathematics" it starts off covering ODEs covers some linear algebra and vector calculus (none of which someone taking the class hasn't seen before) then it goes on to PDEs and Fourier analysis some complex analysis and on from there. It would be this book here http://www.bkstr.com/webapp/wcs/stor...purpose=browse

    Hmmm, Kreyszig's "Advanced Engineering Mathematics" has been around for a long, long time it seems. Lots and lots of used copies out there.

    Dang, even I have a copy of 'Advanced Engineering Mathematics ' ! I was a
    young engineering student in 1961 when I bought it. Time flies when you
    are having fun. Thanks for the memories !

    Just be glad you didn't have to buy the 9th edition it was $120 USED from the bookstore. If I hadn't bought it too late in the semester I'd have gotten it off of half.com for about $100.

    We are drifting a tad from 'Rangefinder Forum '! Any more discussions of
    this math stuff and we should move to 'The Lounge'.

    Well I was planning on picking up the Fed 5 but saw a 5b and went for it. For some reason I couldn't say no to a $26 camera that is exactly what I was looking for. The lack of light meter really doesn't bother me as it is more of a walking around camera, though it is a little heavy for that, than an indoor situation camera and I plan on shooting B&W almost exclusively anyway.

    These were all in the $50 area, or less in a few cases. This only includes sales in the past amount of time that EBay will let you search. (I don't know how far back they look.) In the same time period, five Retina IIas went for over $50 (one of which was a Rodenstock glass model that went for beaucoup bux).

    blah, blah, blah.

    You're correct. I should have said that in the past, these cameras rarely sold for less than $50.

    I forgot that prices for certain models seem to rise and fall. Apparently, it's in a period when prices are lower. For a while, you couldn't get a IIa for less than $75.

    I suspect that prices for cameras will remain low until the economy settles a bit. Probably a buyers' market for the next year or so.

    Some of those were very nice. Some were crap. But they all were around $50 and often less. I'm surprised.
