Scientific American, New York
April 8, 1876
In a listing entitled, “Index of Inventions,” is the patent given to Alexander Graham Bell for a device that transmits sound over wire. The patent is listed as “Telegraphy, A.G. Bell………….174,465.” On March 10, 1876, Bell would use his device to call his assistant, Thomas A. Watson, from an adjoining room, saying, “Mr. Watson — come here — I want to see you.” This experiment marked the first successful trial of the telephone, and ushered in a brand new age in the history of communications.
Sixteen pages, loaded with sketches of the very latest inventions as well as some very fascinating ads. And there are articles on “The Depth of the Sea,” a sketch of a Bengal Tiger attacked by a crocodile with article, and quite a bit more. Excellent condition throughout.
