I just discovered a very informative collection of recently published
historical books that most of you might be interested in; they're
published by the Institution of Electrical Engineers (UK), in
association with the London Science Museum.

Here are the titles in the series:

   2       Early Radio Wave Detectors
   3       A history of Electric Light and Power
