15 of 16 people found the following review helpful By Charles Keith on June 27, 1998
Format: Paperback
This book covers the technical history of telephones, focusing on main-line American (Western Electric) and closely related phones. Early local battery systems are covered, and detailed descriptions are given of the telephone circuits and how they work. The book progresses to common battery, dial, touch tone and so on, with circuits and descriptions for virtually every Western Electric phone type. It is incredibly valuable as a reference, as well as a good read for anyone interested in the technical history of telephones.

Format: Paperback
We were able to locate hard to find technical data and schematics for older, classic telephones. Also includes a good index and bibliography

Format: Paperback
I checked with the local telephone man and the drawings on how to hook up the telephone are illegal and can get you hurt. The restoration methods will damade the telephone and a collector will not want your phone. I feel that this book is a sham and would not recommend it. If you are looking for some help restoreing a old telephone check out your local telephone collecting group.
