Book Description:
In 1893 Nikola Tesla oversaw the writing and publication of this book that details his pioneer electrical inventions and impressive range of thought at that time. It covers the results of ten full years and includes his lectures, miscellaneous articles and discussions, and notes of all his inventions with a particular emphasis on those dealing with polyphase motors and the effects obtained with currents of high potential and high frequency.
