    Thomas Edison - Land Conveyance - Edison Lamp Company to Edison General Electric Company
    Thomas Edison, in addition to being a prolific inventor and scientific innovator, made every effort to capitalize on the commercial possibilities of his inventions. The offered document conveys lands in Jersey City, NJ from one Edison enterprise to another and is signed by Thomas Edison as President of the Edison Lamp Company.
    The Edison Lamp Company began manufacturing lamps during the summer of 1880. It later merged with other Edison companies in 1889 to become the Edison General Electric Company.
    The Edison General Electric Company was formed in 1889 as a consolidation of a number of other Edison ventures, including the Edison Lamp Company. In 1892 the Edison General Electric Company would merge with the Thomson-Houston Company to become today's General Electric. An attractive piece with the actual signature of one of the great scientific geniuses in American industrial history. There are professional repairs, quite difficult to detect, along a central split of this four page document. Very Fine.
