Edison presents, in intimate detail, one of history's most prolific inventors, and perhaps America's first celebrity. Thomas Alva Edison did more than bring the power of incandescent light into every home and business; he created a world-famous brand, raised money to support research and business, and sought to patent more than a thousand inventions. Enhanced with audio and video, this deluxe edition is a unique introduction to the man who helped engineer the modern world. Leonard DeGraaf, archivist for the Thomas Edison National Historical Park, chronicles Edison's life and work, making lively and lavish use of never-before-published primary sources, including Edison's personal and business correspondence, lab notebooks, drawings, and advertising material, along with both historic and modern photographs.
