Keeping the muzzle pointed in a safe direction since 2008
Used it a lot in Chemistry and Physics in college... Way more than just chemicals and rubber in there.
LOL, good one! :-)
New competition announcement! How OLD is your Rubber Bible? I admit I traded in a mid-1970s version bought new for a 1962 (44th) with gold-colored covers. It's from the small era (7.5 inches high).
Anon, I'd have to look, but I think it was 1982.
The CRC Math Tables on my shelf (20th Ed.) are dated 1972.
If you want to assemble an "end of the world" book collection, a Rubber Bible (of any edition) is definitely essential ti include. Also, I'd recommend (having made one of these collections about 25 years ago) hitting used book stores for civil engineering textbooks, manuals, and handbooks published from roughly 1920 to about 1970.These assume all calculations will be done by slide rule (another technology you should know how to use) and hand-powered adding machine — no computers.
Aw, hells yeah the Math tables are the bomb! They got me through Advanced Engineering Math (not that I have ever needed any crazy differential equations since I graduated).
52nd edition from 1971-1972. I used mine mainly for the huge table of integrals.
