The preface

The Edison Phonograph Company is easy and fun to read – a real delight for anyone interested in what it was like "behind the scenes" in the early sound recording industry.

Leo Kimmett has done a fine work in preserving Clarence Ferguson's recollections; first-hand accounts that were very close to being lost completely.
