The Papers of Thomas A. Edison

The Papers of Thomas A. Edison allow readers from all walks of life to rediscover Thomas Edison, his career, his work habits, his creative strategies, and even the processes of invention and innovation he experienced. The transcriptions, explanatory annotations, chapter headnotes, and detailed index in the book edition are designed as much to satisfy the most demanding scholarly inquiries as to offer new opportunities for lifelong learning.

The appeal of this edition goes across the disciplines—sciences, social sciences, humanities, and even the arts. Indeed the edition will be of use to educators, engineers, and attorneys; to film producers and media critics;to entrepreneurs, hobbyists, collectors, and, of course, to cultural resource managers.
