Item description for The Nikola Tesla Treasury by Nikola Tesla...
Here's the Tesla collection you've been waiting for: 214 figures; 668 pages; and 107 articles, letters to editors, and lectures. All the famous lectures and articles that you'd expect are here, such as A New System of Alternating Current Motors and Transformers; Experiments with Alternating Currents of High Frequency; Experiments with Alternate Currents of Very High Frequency and Their Application to Methods of Artificial Illumination; Experiments with Alternate Currents of High Potential and High Frequency; On Light and Other High Frequency Phenomena; The Problem of Increasing Human Energy, With Special References to the Harnessing of the Sun's Energy; and My Inventions: The Autobiography of Nikola Tesla! You'll also get his many letters to editors, commenting on Marconi, Edison, and many issues of the day. And if that wasn't enough you'll also get other articles that you've heard about but probably never seen, such as Famous Scientific Illusions; High Frequency Oscillators for Electro-Therapeutic and Other Purposes; The Disturbing Influence of Solar Radiation on the Wireless Transmission of Energy; The Wonder World to Be Created by Electricity; A Speech Delivered Before the American Institute of Electrical Engineers; and Electrical Oscillators. This is an amazing collection that will give you the most complete look into the mind of Nikola Tesla, who has been called the most important man of the 20th Century.

More About Nikola Tesla
Inventor Nikola Tesla (1856-1943) emigrated to the United States from his native Croatia in 1884 to work for Thomas Edison. He contributed to the development of the alternating-current electrical system, which made the universal transmission and distribution of electricity possible. George Westinghouse purchased the patents to Tesla's induction motor and made it the basis of the Westinghouse power system, which underlies the modern electrical power industry.
Reviews - What do customers think about The Nikola Tesla Treasury?
Thorough, but with some hickups Jun 11, 2008
Plus: The Treasury contains a tremendous wealth of fascinating information in a single book -- it's hard to put down!
Minus: It appears to be a scanned OCR version of most of the included documents, given the abundance and type of typos in the text - clearly it hasn't been reviewed before publication. It is also lacking relevant images from several articles, presumably also due to the lack of editorial review of the contents. Given the highly-technical nature of most of the contents, that really is annoying. Final short-coming: many of the included letters are replies to other people's letters which are not included -- making the included letters often hard to understand for lack of context.
