Featured Document: Edison Memo Book, 1886
Thinking Spring and some new landscaping? Volume 8 includes Edison's purchase of land for a winter home and laboratory on Florida's Gulf Coast. Edison sketched in characteristic detail how he wanted the grounds to look and wrote dozens of specific instructions for setting out a variety of decorative and fruit-bearing plants. Visitors to Fort Myers today can still see Edison's vision in the landscaping of his property. Check out the notebook entry - Image 19
