Covering the entire story of the discs from 1912 through 1929, this illustrated book outlines all known label varieties and discusses in detail the manufacturing characteristics and sonic qualities of Edison records year by year.

Included as well are numerous charts showing the catalog numbers for those records pressed without them, the actual names of artists when not named on the labels, sales graphs, matrix and catalog number release graphs and detailed manufacturing data enabling the collector to identify when his record was pressed. 84 pages, over 110 photos.

Available for $16.00 plus $7 priority shipping.
