I found some more older ARRL publications.
All are in the older, small (6 x 9 inch) format.
All are in good shape, unless listed otherwise.

How to Become a Radio Amateur - 1974 - 29th edition
Like new condition, with some yellowing of the paper.  $ 12

Fifty Years of A.R.R.L. - 1965 - First Edition
Like new.  $ 15

Radio Amateur's License Manual
1975 - 74th edition - almost like new. $8
1976 - 75th edition - like new  $ 10

ARRL Radio Amateur's Handbook
1948 - 25th edition - cover missing - $ 12
1950 - 27th edition - cover worn and binding loose - $ 12
1958 - 35th edition - cover worn - shows use - $ 10
1973 - 50th edition - shows some use - $12

Understanding Amateur Radio - 1977
larger 8 1/2 x 11 format - very nice shape - $ 10

Older tube manuals:
Sylvania Electronic Products "Technical Manual"
1953 edition, in binder.  This is a tube manual,
similar to the RCA HB-3, but is slightly taller than the
RCA HB-3. It covers gas regulator tubes (the 0's),
thru receiving tubes, and into picture tubes.
There appear to be updates added, but no dates on the
updates that I can find.  This is not quite as comprehensive
as the RCA HB-3, but it really includes a lot.
Book is in nice shape.  $ 60

RCA Receiving Tube Manual RC-23
1964 edition.  In addition to plain receiving tubes,
it also includes rectifiers, and some other tubes.
Paper bound book, in pretty good shape.  One corner
slightly bent on cover.  $ 20

Related book:
Howard Sams "Dial Cord Stinging Guide" DC-1
To quote the cover of the book, "Dial Cord
Diagrams covering most 1938 to 1947 receivers."
Copyright date of 1947.  It includes Hallicrafters,
National, Knight, and Lafayette, among many,
many others. This book is paperback, about
3/8 of an inch thick, and although there is a
very slight yellowing of the paper, it appears to be
almost like new.  Definitely collectible, as well as
valuable for the information it contains.  $ 20

Prices do not include shipping from Florida.
