He improved upon it, but he did not invent it.
English scientist Sir Humphry Davy invented arc lighting many years before
Edison was even born, and many later improved on his model. In 1840, Warren
de la Rue (another Briton), enclosed a platinum coil in a vacuum tube and
passed an electric current through it, allowing the light to glow for a
longer period that Davy's carbon filament. After many experiments with metal
filaments, Edison returned to the carbon filament, demonstrating that this
could allow the light to glow for very long periods of time. This was
demonstrated in October 22nd 1879.

“There are people in the world so hungry, that God cannot appear to them except in the form of bread.”
― Mahatma Gandhi
