I cant find "My Friend, Mr Edison" in the renewal databases. John Vandenberg 09:22, 9 August 2007 (UTC)

Was London the name of the publisher, or was it published in London, England? I can't quite tell from that statement. Sherurcij Collaboration of the Week: Author:Henry Ford 09:53, 9 August 2007 (UTC)
That says it was published in London by "E. Benn", however w:WorldCat is just a melting pot of metadata, so its not always accurate, esp. for older works when librarians had less developed computer systems. If you specify a location of New York, it indicates there are two libraries in the state that hold it; drill down to both libraries and type in the name of the book to see that it was also published in New York, Cosmopolitan book corporation, 1930; so it is probable that it was printed in both US and UK.
