Instructions for operation of X-ray diffraction apparatus. Report WA 160/5

Watertown, MA: Watertown Arsenal, March 8, 1936. Title from cover. Hand-assembled technical report consisting of 62 irregularly paginated leaves (per OCLC), all printed one side only. These include 15 mounted original photographs, 13 blueprints, and 33 text leaves (typed carbon copies). Some are descriptions of the photos. All are housed in printed, brown, paper covers, stapled through thickness of the publication 1.5 cm from spine. About 26 x 21.5. cm. From the physical structure of the book and its likely manufacture, it must be extremely rare, perhaps fewer than a dozen copies. OCLC locates one copy, at the Fort Belvoir Defense Technical Information Center in Virginia.
Two copies available, both of them the former property of a Captain David J. Crawford, Jr. One copy is in very good condition, considering; some expected creasing and nicks at the yapp edges. The second cover is creased, and the fold at the cover spine has serious insect damage that is strictly cosmetic and does not affect the use of the volume. The listed price is for the better copy.
