Original book and bottle from Edison's laboratory at Menlo Park. These were purchased from the estate of an antique dealer who had owned an antique store in the 1960s. I believe he purchased this in 1943 from Mina Edison. The book is a patent book published by the government detailing patents that were granted that year. The bottle is in good condition with no visible cracks. There are some rust colored stains near the top. There are a couple air bubbles in the glass, as well as what looks to be a break on the inside of the bottle.
