Jebb, Albert C. (Editor); Wilf Small (Sub-editor). Official Bulletin of the Manitoba Wireless Experimenters’ Association, “V4E”; [Cover Subtitle: “Issued monthly in the interests of amateur radio”.]. Winnipeg, Manitoba: Manitoba Wireless Experimenters’ Association, March – April, 1937. Vol. 1, No. 3. pp. 6. 4to., measuring 9″ x 12″. Brightly illustrated stapled card covers featuring the image of a tall transmission tower, with a crest comprising of a map of Canada, atop a set of four brightly-coloured radio waves. An amateur periodical published for the benefit of “wireless experimenter’s”; usually students notably from Kelvin High School, and Central Collegiate which were hotbeds of amateur wireless activity. Amongst the little quirks of the publication: it refers to its members exclusively by their phonetic and radio code names (e.g.: VE4RO, VE4TJ, VE4AFK, etc.). Features wonderful hand-drawn illustrations, as well as professionally placed advertisements to the verso of the front and rear covers by local businesses catering to the ever-burgeoning population of amateur wireless experimenters. No detectable flaws, fine. Exceedingly scarce, we cannot locate any instances of this amateur periodical amongst any institutional holdings including the University of Alberta – Peel Project, the University of Manitoba Archives & Special Collections, or Library and Archives Canada. Rare indeed. Stapled Wraps. (#1453) $85.00
