Beautifully engraved unissued certificate from the Edison Phonograph Works of New Jersey. This historic document was printed by John B. Powers & Son in 1888 and has an ornate border around it with the famous Edison name top center and is over 115 years old. This is an important company that started the recorded music industry revolution and was the MP3 equivalent of the 1800's.

The Edison Phonograph Works (EPW), incorporated on May 3, 1888, held the manufacturing rights for Edison's phonograph. Edison was the company's founding president and majority stockholder. During the 1890s the EPW operated a factory in Orange, New Jersey, at which it manufactured phonographs and cylinders for the North American Phonograph Co., the National Phonograph Co., and the International Graphophone Co. It also produced machines for the Bates Manufacturing Co. and electrical devices for the Edison Manufacturing Works. In 1914 its factory was destroyed by fire. In 1924 the company became part of Thomas A. Edison Inc
