Since its first publication in 1959, From Tinfoil to Stereo has been regarded as the bible of record and phonograph collectors. It investigates the individuals, the companies, and the legal machinations that led to virtually every major development in the talking machine industry, up to the installation of sound on Hollywood stages and in movie theaters across the country. This edition contains many new photographs, most taken between 1888 and 1912, that have never appeared in any publication. (source: Nielsen Book Data)
