I'll second the use of a DSLR for digitizing a book such as this. A simple copy stand and a 20+ MP DSLR can generally do well for most items up to 11x17 in size or so, depends on how fine the printing is.
For E-size material a medium format camera might be preferable, just in case anyone's planning to digitize material that large. OhByTheWay, something better than Acrobat Pro should be the tool to convert the raster file to vectors for technical drawings.
