The Liver Story

£60.00

  • Recorded in the Edison Laboratory, in Orange, New Jersey, in 1906
  • 2 minutes

Chief Recording Engineer Walter Miller encouraged Edison to make this record (in fact, the first thing you will hear is Edison calling out “Hey, Walter Miller …”).  It seems that Miller, in later years, produced a number of celluloid copies from this 2-minute mould.  The story that Edison recounts on the cylinder appears to be typical of his sense of humour, numerous accounts of which appear in both contemporary newspaper articles and various biographies.

This is a numbered edition.
