Company Records Series -- Edison Phonograph Works
Profit and Loss Statements (1899-1911)
These unbound statements consist of annual profit and loss reports that cover the period March 1899-February 1911. Each statement provides summaries of costs, sales revenues, and inventories at the end of accounting periods. The products covered include phonographs, projecting kinetoscopes, numbering machines, wax, and motors. A few statements provide comparative reports of two consecutive fiscal years, and the information for some years is presented on two sheets.
