The man who does not read good books has no advantage over the man who
can't read them.
 Mark Twain
I collect old textbooks, especially
 Control Engineering books from the
1940s and 1950s
See Bennett, "A Brief History of Automatic Control" IEEE Control
Systems, June 1996.
 The MIT Lincoln Laboratory Publications Series (McGrawHill)
 The Bell Telephone Laboratory Series (Van Nostrand)
 The McGrawHill Electrical and Electronic Engineering Series
I have complete collections of
Advanced Book Exchange is a good
search engine for used books.
History of Control Systems

IEEE Control Systems Society History Committee.
I have scanned John Miller's paper
"Dependence of the input impedance of a
threeelectrode vacuum tube upon the load in the plate circuit."
This paper is the first description of the Miller Effect.
Does anyone have a copy of
A. J. Grant's rootlocus paper?
Is there a better disproof of the Barkhausen Stability Criterion?

Residue Theorem.

Dcontour.
 Drawing
