About this Item

EDISON for "Speaking Machine", this is a historic event and highly desireable to collectors of Edison's work and scientific events -- Other items of note with engravings are: Front page "New Mechanical Inventions", pages 274 & 275 "Hydraulic Mining in California", page 279 "The Boiling Lake of Dominica,West Indies", plus many others -- As always the pages of advertisements are fascinating -- The publisher proclaims their publication to be "A Weekly Journal of Practical Information, Art, Science, Mechanics, Chemistry, and Manufactures". -- An excellent opportunity for the collector and researcher. -- Frank Luther Mott, winner of The Pulitzer Prize for his History of American Magazines, states that "The Scientific American had a significance--at least for its first sixty or seventy years--unapproached in kind and effect by any other periodical" -- This paper is technically referred to as a periodical, actually it is a Historical Document, recording events at the time of their occurence. ---- Historical Events Are Never More Exciting Than When You Read Them From The Day They First Occurred And Were Reported In Newspapers and Magazines ----.
