A must have for any collector or enthusiast of these type of phonographs. Very specific information on types & models.
As a new phonograph collector I found this book to be indespensable as a reference guide for all Edison phonograph products. Loaded with photographs and details, it is a visual and narrative guide to the machines, cylinders, horns and reproducers. Frow provides the history of the machines in an informative and easy-to read way. This book is also loaded with interesting facts about the sales approaches used to sell Edison products during the early days! Great read and reference guide!

This is really an excellent compilation, with photos, of every model cylinder phonograph that Edison produced from 1877-1929. There is a detailed history, year by year, model by model, and even accessories are included. It is truly the best book on the subject. If you have any questions on restoration of these machines, the best resource is by Eric Reiss, "The Compleat Talking Machine Book", but if you are looking for an in-depth survey of the electric and spring-wind machines and inventors, this is the book. If you have any questions about your phonograph, talking doll, coin-operated examples, etc., just email [email protected] And for identifying every wax cylinder, there is "Edison Cylinder Records, 1889-1912."
