This set of books comprises scrapbooks, logbooks, notebooks, and other bound items that do not have archival N- or PN-numbers. The books contain material regarding orders of equipment to outfit the laboratory, the administration of experimental projects, inventory and supplies, as well as recording information for phonograph cylinders, labor records, and other administrative items. Some of the material that pertains to the outfitting of the new laboratory is by Edison. Most of the material, however, is by unidentified storekeepers and office personnel.
Only four books have been selected. Books that deal mainly with inventory and supplies, labor records, and shop orders have not been selected. Also not selected is a notebook used by A. Theo E. Wangemann to list musical recordings for phonograph cylinders. A transcription of this book can be found in Allen Koenigsberg, Edison Cylinder Records, 1889-1912 (New York, Stellar Productions, 1969): 109-133.
