Specification

Originally published in 1894, The Inventions, Researches and Writings of Nikola Tesla, with special reference to his work in polyphase currents and high potential lighting, is a simple record of the pioneer work done by Mr. Nikola Tesla (1856 - 1943) who was a Serbian American inventor, electrical engineer, mechanical engineer, and futurist best known for his contributions to the design of the modern alternating current (AC) electricity supply system. The book is thoroughly recommended for the serious student of electrical engineering.
