About this Item

An original, complete issue of 16 pages dated August 30, 1879 -- On page 140 it is noted that on July 22, 1879 the following patents were issued to T. A. EDISON - patent # 217,781 for "Sextuplex Telegraph" and patent # 217,782 for "Duplex Telegraph", this is an historic event and highly desireable to collectors of Edison's work and scientific events -- Other items of note with engravings are: Front page article and engraving titled "Machinery for the Manufacture of Bessemer Steel", plus many others -- 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in kind and effect by any other periodical" -- This paper is technically referred to as a periodical, actually it is a Historical Document, recording events at the time of their occurrence. ---- Historical Events Are Never More Exciting Than When You Read Them From The Day They First Occurred And Were Reported In Newspapers and Magazines ----.
