Historic Photos of Thomas Edison - text and captions by Leonard DeGraaf

The book "Historic Photos of Thomas Edison," is part of Turner Publishing Company's "Historic Photos" series and was compiled by Leonard DeGraaf, an archivist at the Edison National Historic Site in West Orange. The book traces Edison's life from his boyhood in Ohio and Michigan through almost 45 years in West Orange. For those who only have a vague understanding of what Edison achieved in his 84 years, the book is a comprehensive look at the astounding breadth of his accomplishments. Even Edison-philes will find this book a worthwhile addition to the vast public record of Edison because DeGraaf has chosen many photographs that have rarely been seen before.
While most of DeGraaf's book documents Edison's genius as an inventor and entrepenuer it also illuminates his role as one of America's first celebrities.
