The Papers of Thomas A. Edison

Completion of Volume 7 and editorial work on Volumes 8 and 9 of the Papers of Thomas A. Edison. (36 months)

The Papers of Thomas A. Edison is a fifteen-volume book edition that will contain about 6,500 transcribed and annotated letters, notebook entries, experimental drawings, legal agreements, equipment specifications, marketing plans, autobiographical writings, and other documents from Edison's lengthy career. Each volume contains sketches and drawings from notebooks, photographs and drawings of artifacts, and illustrations from contemporary publications. When published in this scholarly edition, they reveal not only how Edison achieved such success but illuminate the contexts for his innovations and the growing importance of technology to modern life. The Papers of Thomas A. Edison make the complex documentary legacy of Edison more generally comprehensible while improving access to the daunting mass of Edison-related documents and objects that exist in historical sites and private collections worldwide.
