Partly-printed DS, signed by Thomas Edison, one page, 11.75 x 8.25, New Jersey; August 19, 1899. Stock certificate No. 139 was issued to Thomas A. Edison for 60 shares of capital stock in The Edison Portland Cement Company, featuring an engraved portrait of the inventor with an ornate engraved border, signed on the reverse in black ink to approve the transfer of the stock, "Thomas A. Edison." It is countersigned by Walter S. Mallory as Vice President. Mallory was a longtime friend of Edison's and was made president of the company the following month. In fine condition. 

In addition to his more famous ventures, Edison was a pioneer in the use and manufacture of cement. After devising a method of using waste sand from his Edison Ore-Milling Company as the basis for quality cement, he established the Edison Portland Cement Company in 1899. He experimented with many applications of his creation and believed it to be the stuff of the future, envisioning a world of concrete houses filled with concrete furniture, refrigerators, and even pianos. It won the contract for the original Yankee Stadium in 1922, which stood until 2010 thanks in part to the high quality of its construction. The company eventually closed during the Great Depression.
