The Columbia Company, just as Edison, was keen to capitalize on the market for home distance learning by offering special phonographs for home language education. For Edison, it was the International Correspondence Schools, and for Columbia, the Language Phone was the cylinder phonograph for language instruction. This phonograph -- a modified Columbia Q -- is in superb original condition, with a gorgeous (and rare!) banner decal on the lid, lovely gold striping and bedplate decoration, and the hard-to-find original listening tube! Also included: a modern replica 10" horn for public enjoyment, and plenty of music to listen to right away!
