[The following note describes a series of notebooks and has no documents attached to it. For that reason, a "no Documents found" message will appear if the "List Documents" button at the bottom of the note is used. To see the notebooks described here, use the "Which Series Notes?" button to enter the Series Notes or use the "Next Text" button to move to the first item in the series. Some of the images in the pocket notebooks are small, and they may be difficult to read. They can be enlarged to a more readable size by using the "image zoom" feature of the Firefox browser.

These notebooks, which generally measure about 3" or 4" in one direction and 6" or 7" in the other, relate to a variety of topics, including phonographs and phonograph cylinders, electric lighting, meter and battery tests, ore milling, x-ray tubes and apparatus, metals and alloys, and chemical experiments. All of the notebooks by Edison, as well as the two most significant books by other experimenters, have been selected.
