Title

[NS7703A], Technical Note, Thomas Alva Edison, John Kruesi, August 12th, 1877

Editor's Notes

This was once considered to be the drawing from which Kruesi constructed the first phonograph. However, the evidence suggests that the inscription was added at a later date. It does not appear on the reproduction of the drawing in William K. L. Dickson's biography of Edison, published in 1894, nor on the reproduction in James U. MacKenzie's obituary in the Electrical World in 1895.
