Edison's Invention of the Kineto-Phonograph, with an introduction by Charles G. Clarke, A. S. C. Being a reprint of an article originally appearing in the Century Magazine in the year 1894

Privately Printed at the Pueblo Press [for editor-authors], Los Angeles. 1939, 18p., b&w illustrations and facsimiles, rear pocket with zoetrope wheel; text printed on calendared paperstock with edges left untrimmed, hardbound issue, 10.5x8 inches; has a lovely coarse-linen spine over matte-black boards with printed face label. Copy no.145 of 250 only. Cloth-backing is mildly toned from handling; preliminary leaves and terminal leaf bear a small faint damp-stain while leaves between are free of it; pastedown has a private bookplate (a very nice one), the ffep and next blank both are inscribed by Charles Clarke to art director Leland Fuller: a rather formal presentation on ffep, and a warm personal one on the blank. A very good copy. Inscribee Fuller (1899-1962) was Hollywood art director, worked on numerous films from 1943 til his death including Viva Zapata!, was oscar-nominated for that and five others.
