Navy buckram, gilt spine. Ex library blind-stamp of the Carnegie Institution of Washington, Mount Wilson Observatory. Fine. FIRST EDITION of a series of papers on television engineering at a time of rapid development in the field. Peter Goldmark, born in Budapest, Hungary, built his first simple television receiver in 1929 with a postage stamp-sized screen while he was a student at the University of Vienna. His work had a profound influence in at least two major areas which blossomed into giant industries in the 1950s and 60s. The first practical color television system was developed at CBS Laboratories under Goldmark's direction, and the first color broadcast in history was transmitted from CBS's experimental transmitter in New York in August, 1940. Goldmark received the Ph.D. in physics in 1931 from the University of Vienna and joined CBS in New York in 1936 as chief engineer of its newly formed television research department. In 1950 Goldmark became vice-president in charge of engineering, and in 1954 was named president of CBS Laboratories, a division of the Columbia Broadcasting System.
