These records consist of bound ledgers and journals and unbound statements. Some of the entries in the ledgers and journals pertain to accounts with other Edison companies, including the Edison Manufacturing Co., Edison Phonograph Co., Edison Phonograph Works, New Jersey Patent Co., and Ott Manufacturing Co. Also included are accounts with the National Phonograph Co., Ltd., in London; the Compagnie Française du Phonographe Edison in Paris; and the Edison Gesellschaft in Berlin. The records are arranged in the following groups: (1) statements (1900-1911); (2) state and federal filings (1905-1910); (3) general ledgers (1899-1911); and (4) journals (1903-1911). Many of the entries in the first general ledger and in Journal #2 are written in faint green ink and may be difficult to read. Among the items not selected are three Foreign Department books (1905-1908) containing bills of lading; twenty-five cash books (1896-1911); and journals and ledgers for individual or specialized accounts.
