"We have endeavoured in this, our first Annual, to produce a publication containing all that is good in Technical Subjects, but not so over-cooked as to be indigestible.
We have tried to embody in it those gems of information that, for divers reasons, are not easily procurable through the usual channels.
This Annual was to have originally contained 148 pages but, thanks to the willing support of subscribers and advertisers, we were able to increase this to 248 pages.
This increase has cut a greedy slice off the margin of profit, but in following our policy we have never found it bad business to give fullest value for money. So if you find the book a little heavy to hold, and not fitting in your tool box, don't blame us, but trace the inconvenience to over-generosity. We would like you to read the advertising pages, and place your business where possible with those firms who support us, and indirectly you.
You will find the advertisements interesting and instructive and we want you to help us justify our sales claims.
We think you'll like our first Annual, and if you do, tell your friends about it. We hope to make it 300 pages for 1938."
