Upton Sinclair would like to understand why he writes his books. And he would like you to buy his new book, "Mammonart." Or buy any of his other books, all of them available from Sinclair, himself. In fact, he pioneered a form of self-publishing in which a trade publisher put his books out for the general market, and he put out his own edition of the same book, often at a lower price. Smart. Some day the website UptonSinclair.org will have some content. This ad was published in the...

By 1922 radio was changing from an avocation of experimenters and techno-geeks to something everyone wanted to have in their homes. The availability of commercially made complete radio receiving sets (or systems) made the changeover possible. Here RCA does its part to make radio something everyone wants. Compare the cover shown here with the back cover of the Sears radio catalog from about this time. This book, Radio Enters the Home, has been reprinted for collectors.
