This is a LIMITED TIME OFFER of a RARE edition of "Christmas 1911 with The Edison Electric Co. of Boston." This 96 page book depicts a special Christmas celebration arranged for Edison employees.
The book was printed for PRIVATE DISTRIBUTION and was presented to Carrie Curtis and numbered #878. This book measures 8 1/2 x 10 1/2 inches and is in good condition with little wear other than some staining especially on the back cover and some minor paper loss again on the back cover. The binding is strong but some separation can be seen on the bottom.
One of the very interesting accounts in the book tells about the search for a Christmas tree for the party. They could not find a suitable tree and decided instead to BUILD A TREE with branches made from individual Christmas trees !!! This tree can be seen in some of the pictures. Imagine any company doing something close to this today.
This book is rarely seen offered to the public. Please remember that this is a limited time offer and will return to my collection if unsold after December 15th of this year. Don't be fooled by the sale ending date listed on . If unsold this listing will be ended after Dec. 15th.
Also included is a separate insert of a frameable photo of Dr. Charles Steinmetz & Thomas Edison taken at Briarcliff Lodge in 1909. This item is seen in the last photo.
The book is not inexpensive but try finding another.
