Edison Two-Minute and Concert Cylinders

Subtitle or Edition: 
American Series, 1897–1912
Annotation: 

Edison Two-Minute and Concert Cylinders is the first study of these records to be compiled from the surviving company documentation (including the factory plating ledgers, studio cash books, remake and deletion notices, catalogs, supplements, and trade publications), along with careful inspection of the original cylinders. All American-catalog issues from 1897 through 1912, including the Grand Opera series, are covered. Unlike previously published guides, which lack listings of the numerous remakes, this new volume shows all versions (even indicating those initially supplied by Walcutt & Leeds), along with the listing or release dates and distinguishing details for each. Plating dates for brown-wax pantograph masters and early Gold Moulded masters, which provide valuable clues to the long-lost recording dates, are published here for the first time. 398 total pages.
