Some recent discoveries

First of all thanks to Siddharth for his amazing and non-stop efforts in bringing out some many links to us.

Perhaps we need to make a separate post for his books!

From now on we will shift completely to The Internet Archive for links. In case you find a broken link and have the file, please provide alternate links.

Recently I found a few gems at a raddiwala shop. Here are a few glimpses

All of them (plus a few non-soviet books) for a little over Rs. 100!

Just a couple of months more and we will be back in business…

    You got these from which raddiwala shop? I mean an old one or new one? in a big city or a small town?

    • The Mitr says:

      This is in Mumbai, a small seller in Deonar. Visited the shop for taking some carbon copies of documents. The shop also doubled up as a raddi shop. Saw some children’s books there, browsed through the pile and voila, there they were…

      Hello Guys,

      I have a chance to purchase Mechanisms in Modern Engineering Design Vols. I II III (4 books) by Artobolevsky. All I need is the last three books to complete the set! If anyone has these last books or knows where I can get a copy let me know. Then we can get the other machine design series by orlov, machine tool design acherkan, etc.

    I have a suggestion:

    Please add the following list also to the Blogroll so that we can have links of Soviet books in other regional languages also:

    I also request everyone here to add links of such blogs (if anyone knows) which provide only Soviet e-books in languages other than English like Spanish, French or any regional languages etc. so that interested users can find translated books’ blogs & links here.

      Dear Siddharth,
      Thanks for serving the scientific community by bringing in these priceless books. However I would like to have more of these collections.
      Do you have the following books ?
      1. Engineering Thermodynamics by Kirillin, Sychev and Sheindlin – Mir Moscow 1976
      2. Hanbook of Physics by Yavorsky and Detlas – Mir Moscow 1977

  3. indigene says:

    Where is the raddiwala?

  4. Eric. says:

    Hey, I am curious what people are paying for Mir books in math and physics? The books in the usa can be $50+ and $500+ in south America. Are these books in India very cheap like $10 or less? Because I have been spending a lot of money in USA and I just wanted a comparison. Also, if anybody has duplicate books they want to sell or books they want to sell let me know. I am nearing completion of scanning Mathematical handbook: higher mathematics by M. Vygodsky. I will be done shortly.

    • Siddharth says:

      Yes some of the books I have scanned had printed on them , for example,
      “Price Indian Rupee 3.80” in the 1980s!
      ( Presently 60 Indian Rupee = 1 US $ )

      • Sanjay Singh says:

        I have imported MIR book Irodov Physics problems which I bought in 1991, In very good condition . Anyone wants to scan it then I can rent it(for free of course) if promised to return. I also have High School Mathematics By G.N. Yakolev which I had bought from footpath back then, it is also imported in good condition but some pages have yellowed.

    • vineet says:

      They are available for around 1$ by CBS publisher,print quality is little bit on the lower side but the content is there, we should be thankful that at least it is available and that to so cheaply.

    • Sam says:

      Hey Eric, Do you have hard copies of
      1.Intermediate algebra by richard rusczyk
      2.Precalculus by richard rusczyk
      3.Calculus by David Patrick ?
      can you please upload them for us?
      Hoping that you will
      thanking you for any help you do
      waiting for a reply

  5. S.Sanjay says:

    welcome back, bandhu!

  6. Rahul says:

    This is amazing. I’ve been fan of Mir Pub. books since class 8th. Wonderful job, keep it up 🙂

    • Siddharth says:

      You said MIR books for Class 8th. I couldn’t understand.

      • Rahul says:

        Oh, sorry. What I meant is first time I saw Mir books is by accidentally bumping into an almost empty stall of Rajasthan People’s Publishing House. I came through “Sapekshikta ka Siddhant Kya hai ?” (“What is Theory of Relativity?”) by Landau and Rumer. I read the whole book in the stall itself bought it (in Rs 7 !) and bought many other books and I’m a big fan since then of all physics and maths books. Their exposition are so insightful. I owe my understanding of Physics to Mir books to a large degree.

        It’s great working physicists and mathematicians should write or at least republish at cheaper costs such insightful books for children in secondary and higher secondary standard. I can overstate its importance.

        • Siddharth says:

          1) Do you still have any of those books now?
          2) Do you know any list/ more such title names of hindi Soviet books republished by Rajasthan People’s Publishing House?

          • Rahul says:

            Yes, I have those books but, unfortunately not with me but, at my home. They are mostly in hindi as I have studied science and other subjects through middle school.
            सापेक्षिकता का सिद्धांत क्या है ?, प्रकाश(light), Heat, A B C of Plasma Physics, Nature of Magnetism, और्जिकी (energetics ),रसायनशास्त्र की रूपरेखा.
            Most of these you already have here on this wonderful website of yours.
