Only 1000 copies of the leather edition will be produced, each one is signed (by Grace Bradley Boyd) and numbered from 1 to 1000. This extremely limited edition will never be reprinted and will grow in value as time goes on.
Bound completely in the highest quality cowhide and foil stamped with three different colored dies, the pattern embossed on the leather duplicates exactly the pattern of the leather carving on the actual holsters worn by William Boyd in his portrayal of Hopalong Cassidy.
The edges of the pages are silver gilded, and the spine contains five "hubs" and silver embossing.
The back cover of this very special edition is an embossed design copied exactly from Hoppy's original holsters, full size. A real sterling silver heart is embedded into the back cover; this heart is an exact replica of the silver hearts on the original holsters.
The collector's edition is $300 plus $30 shipping/handling in the US and Canada. For shipping abroad, please call for information.

Until the transistor was invented in 1947, vacuum tubes, particularly microwave tubes, were at the cutting edge of electronics. Engineers working in this field were viewed accordingly. But when the transistor was invented, all of that began to change rapidly, and solid state technology was clearly the technology of the future. It was quickly understood that this new technology would obsolete low power vacuum tubes and it did within several years. Many engineers began working in this new field, both new graduates and many of those that had previously been working on vacuum tubes.
The popular opinion was that solid state was the future and vacuum tubes were an obsolete technology, all of the inventions had been made, nothing left to do of any importance. Engineers rather quickly were divided into 2 groups, "solid state guys" and "tube guys", viewed by some as second class citizens. It hasn't turned out quite that way. The solid state technology has changed the world in many ways. Integrated circuits are a $200B + industry and are of great importance throughout the world. Comparatively, tubes are less than a $1B business; however they are still of vital importance, and, like solid state, the technology has continued to progress at a fast rate.
