Item # 603839

February 28, 1880

SCIENTIFIC AMERICAN, New York, February 28, 1880 

* Patent # for electric light (very historic)
* Inventor Thomas Edison

The book "Famous First Facts" notes that Thomas Edison received a patent, number 223,898, for the electric light on January 27, 1880, marking one of the most significant inventions of the 19th century.
In this issue, among the "Index of Inventions" is a simple and certainly inconspicuous entry for this important invention, the listing reading (shown in the photo): "Lamp, electric, T. A. Edison..........223,898" Nice to have a printing of the patent of an invention which changed the life of mankind.
The full ftpg. is a print of: "The Manufacture of Rotary Pressure Blowers, Works of P. H. & F. M. Roots, Connersville, Indiana". Other prints & articles on the latest inventions & improvements of the day.
Complete in 16 pages, never bound nor trimmed, some light dirtiness to the front page only, generally nice condition.
