If anyone is interested in acquiring this, I am open to offers...

I recently came upon a 1931 "National Radio Institute" (Washington, D.C.)
"...Complete Course in Practical Radio". It comes with a hard-bound
"Radio-Trician Binder" (about 180 pages), together with 23 individual
softcover detailed lesson booklets, each about 30-pages long (examples of
titles: "Principles of Radio Communications", "The Radio Frequency
Amplifier and How It Works", "Tetrode, Pentode, and Variable Mu Tubes",
"A-B-C Supplies", "Radio Coils-Why and How They Work", "Practical RF
Circuits and Methods of Controlling Volume", "The Modern Superheterodyne
Receiver", etc. etc.).

The collection includes two similarly-sized softcover "Reference Books",
i.e. "Radio Inventions", and "Commercial Radio Condensors". There is, as
well, a copy of the magazine "National Radio News" (Volume 5 - No.
2...September 1932), together with a collection of the original
exams-by-mail sheets, AND the  student's answer sheets and work booklet...

The lesson booklets are particularly informative, and would make excellent
reference documents for anyone with a historic interest in the radio are as
it was in the late 1920's / early 1930's.
