A Very Good+ unmarked copy with non price clipped dustjacket. It is almost a century since Thomas Alvar Edison, the world's greatest inventor, gave the world electric light, and over a 100 years since he built the first successful phonograph. The man who declared that 'genius is 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration', and who on average lodged a patent application every two weeks of his adult life, and who was the most famous American of his day. Only now is it possible to present him clearly against the background of his times and to assess fairly his achievements and his often controversial business and working methods. Growing up in the aftermath of the American Civil War, he was a pacifist and was President of the US Naval Consulting Board in the First World War. Profusely illustrated.
