Nikola Tesla: Incredible Scientist, and article from the American Mercury, June 59; Illustrations of patents; Tesla stamps; Articles & pictures from the book Lightning in His Hands; Bibliography of books & articles on Tesla; Prodigal Genius.A Man's Story, not just the Science., June 1, 2001. Unlike the other review I read on this page I find this an Incredible Book. I first read it as a teen and was inspired by the story of an inventor who never has been truly admired by the mainstream. His rivalry with Edison, his failure in love and his unusual mental talents all combine to create an extraordinary story of a man who appears more like an Extraterrestrial than human. The book isn't full of pictures... because not many exist, but if you can aspire to your imagination and delve into O'Neill's description of this man you'll find it all amazing. I've come back to this book again and again... for the story and not necessarily the physics.

The Streams of Lenard and Roentgen and Novel Apparatus for Their Prods ~ Usually ships in 24 hours Nikola Tesla, Leland I. Anderson (Editor) / Hardcover / Published 1994 Our Price: $21.95
Editorial Reviews: CHOICE, July/August 1995, Vol. 32, No. 11/12: "Tesla's lecture of
1897 was never published in full. In this monograph..., Anderson has reconstructed the lecture from a partial typescript and from two articles by Tesla in the May 5 and August 11, 1997, issues of Electrical Review (N.Y.). Tesla begins by recounting his observations of emanations from dozens of differently designed Crooks tubes using a variety of powerful high frequency supplies of his own design... He provided evidence that Roentgen-rays were produced where the cathode rays first struck, e.g., the glass wall of the vacuum tube... In "The Hurtful Actions of Lenard and Roentgen Tubes," Tesla describes his own experiences with damage to the skin produced by both, and includes sensible advice for minimizing the damage. In addition to its historical interest, Tesla's presentation of experiments that revolutionized physical science provides a fascinating view of the analogies and metaphors guiding the thoughts of one important contributor to the revolution." Book Description : Following Nikola Tesla On His Work With Alternating Currents, this book is the second in a three part Tesla Presents series offering the reader what has been, up until now, unavailable material on the pioneering work of Nikola Tesla in field of radio frequency electrical engineering. While first delivered under the title "On the Streams of Lenard and Roentgen with Novel Apparatus for Their Use" the information carried within the text of the lecture goes far beyond this topic.

Editorial Reviews : Society for the History of Technology, Antenna Newsletter, December 1992, page 3 : "This material provides both technical and anecdotal evidence on Tesla's experiments with and applications of wireless telegraphy and telephony. In addition to their new data, these transcripts also provide readers with a different sense of Tesla's personality. QST, March 1995, page 116 : "The subject of this book is a collection of Interviews conducted with Tesla by his legal counsel in 1916. The Marconi Wireless Telegraph Co. sought to trample all competition by patenting every device used in radio communication. Tesla was interviewed to document his prior work and accomplishments, and thus protect them from rapacious Marconi Co. Although the interview took place over seven days, the editor has assembled the transcript into a contiguous document... And what a document! Tesla well knew what fascinating work he was doing, and you can sense his enthusiasm as he describes apparatus capable of generating tens of thousands of volts and drawing sparks 135 feet long. Indeed, one of his goals was to broadcast energy through the air, rather than via wires... reduce the power and modulate the wave and you have radio...Nature, June 17, 1993, Vol. 363, page 592. : "The fledgling broadcast industry of the early 1900s was blighted by fierce patent litigations. Patents in this highly innovative field were often loosely formulated and most wireless systems contained devices whose patents were held by several inventors or Entrepreneurs. One of the most charismatic of these people was Nikola Tesla... This document, never intended for publication, is a transcript of a pre-hearing interview with Tesla by his legal counsel in 1916... Tesla gives a fascinating account of the stages that led him in the 1890s to attempt to transmit electrical power through the earth without the use of wires. Book Description : In this recently discovered transcript of a three day interview conducted in 1916, Nikola Tesla, using words and graphic illustrations, provides a step by step description of his remarkable accomplishments in the area of radio frequency engineering. In a style uniquely his own, Tesla carefully traces his work - from the first high frequency alternators constructed at his New York City Grand Street laboratory and their associated tuned circuits through the establishment of his huge broadcasting facility, the Wardenclyffe Plant, at Shoreham, Long Island. Among the variety of topics discussed are: high frequency alternators, experiments with wireless telegraphy and telephony, mechanical and electrical oscillators, the Colorado experiments, theory and technique of energy transmission, the Long Island plant, and arrangements for receiving. Seldom, in technical research, has such a treasure of descriptive commentary and historical documentation been discovered. The previously untold story found within the pages of this remarkable book has been described by the prominent Tesla researcher James Corum as a "veritable Rosetta stone" for tracing the technical thoughts of one of our most distinguished engineering scientists. Includes 61 photos and 42 line-art illustrations, many never before published.

Editorial Reviews Book Description:With more than 100 patents, electrical engineer Nikola Tesla rivaled Thomas Edison as one of our greatest scientists. This biography, notable for its anecdotal detail and extensive dialogue from original documents, reflects the author's thorough research. Often overlooked as a subject of study in primary schools, Tesla was a leader in electrical innovation whose inventions include the induction motor, alternating-current power transmission, and the radio.
The author, Daniel Blair Stewart , September 2, 1999. TESLA AS WIZARD: When science and sorcery were one. My fascination with Tesla goes back to my childhood. As much as I had read about the development of alternating current or his experiments with giant Tesla coils, I still did not realize that he ruled a lost age of wonders, forgotten for nearly a century, but which demands our attention today. I chose to write an illustrated novel to fill in the blanks left by his biographers, to flesh out his eccentric personality and feed the eye visions of his wonders, created by his hand and made to live by...

Richard L. Hull / Spiral-bound / Published 1994 Our Price: $27.50 (Special Order) Reviews : The author, Richard L. Hull , May 14, 1997 What this book is about, and Who it is written for. The "Colorado Spring Notes" - No lit, are a collection of daily scientific journal entries written by Nikola Tesla during his experimentation with high voltage electrical resonant systems while in Colorado in 1899. This book is written specifically for the advancing Tesla coil builder who has a copy of the Colorado Springs Notes and finds them mysterious or disjoint. It is aimed at clearing up some of the unclear language and units used by Tesla in the late 19th century. His commentary is reviewed on a day by day basis and those items which relate to the modern tesla coil builder are made plain in modern scientific verbiage using more modern units of electrical measure. Owning the original Colorado Springs Notes is not really necessary, as the book is written in a flowing format which is self contained. If the reader has the notes he can, of course, cross reference the author's commentary on a daily basis. This is also a historical work and relates Tesla's separate, private correspondence to his secretary in New York, George Schreff, to advancements and day to day business during Tesla's stay in Colorado. The real history of Tesla's incredible work in 1899 is revealed without the hype and magnification found in so many modern works on the man. The author's own experience and work with real Tesla coils, including the magnifying transmitter, is covered in a series of monographs and reprinted articles in the large appendix following the main work. Finally, a large number of large photographs of real working systems are included in a "photo section" at the very end of the book. These follow the work of the author's group, The Tesla Coil Builders of Richmond, from 1990 up to late 1996 in the third printing.

Historical Background of the Tesla Turbine and Pump
Here is an abstract from US patent # 1,329,559, issued to Nicola Tesla in 1916.
It covers the Internal Combustion version of Tesla's Turbine
Tesla's Valvular Conduit Patent: Fig. 4 (left) exemplifies a particularly valuable application of the invention to which reference has been made above. The drawing shows in vertical cross section a turbine which may be of any type but is in this instance one invented and described by me and supposed to be familiar to engineers.
Suffice it to state that the rotor 21 of the same is composed of flat plates which are set in motion through the adhesive and viscous action of the working fluid, entering the system tangentially at the periphery and leaving it at the center.
Such a machine is a thermodynamic transformer of an activity surpassing by far that of any other prime mover, it being demonstrated in practice that each single disk of the rotor is capable of performing as much work as a whole bucket-wheel.
Besides, a number of other advantages, equally important, make it especially adapted for operation
This may be done in many ways, but the simplest and most direct plan of which I am aware is the one illustrated here. Referring again to the drawing, the upper part of the turbine casing 22 has bolted to it a separate casting 23, the central cavity 24 of which forms the combustion chamber.
To prevent injury through excessive heating a jacket 25 may be used, or else water injected, and when these means are objectionable recourse may be had to air cooling, this all the more readily as very high temperatures are practicable. The top of casting 23 is closed by a plate 26 with a sparking or hot wire plug 27 and in its sides are screwed two valvular conduits communicating with the central chamber 24. One of these is, normally, open to the atmosphere while the other connects to a source of fuel supply as a gas main 28. The bottom of the combustion chamber terminates in a suitable nozzle 29 which consists of separate piece of heat resisting material. To regulate the influx of the explosion constituents and secure the proper mixture of air and gas conduits are equipped, respectively, with valves 30 and 31. The exhaust openings 32 of the rotor should be in communication with a ventilator, preferably carried on the same shaft and of any suitable construction. Its use, however, while advantageous, is not indispensable the suction produced by the turbine rotor itself being, in some cases, at least, sufficient to insure proper working. This detail is omitted from the drawing as unessential to the understanding. But a few words will be needed to make clear the mode of operation. The air valve 30 being open and sparking established across terminals 27, the gas is turned on slowly until the mixture in the chamber 24 reaches the critical state and is ignited. Both the conduits behaving, with respect to influx, as closed valves, the products of combustion rush out through the nozzle 29 acquiring still greater velocity by expansion and, imparting their momentum to the rotor 21, start it from rest.
Upon the subsidence of the explosion the pressure in the chamber sinks below the atmosphere owing to the pumping action of the rotor or ventilator and new air and gas is permitted to enter, cleaning the cavity and channels and making up a fresh mixture which is detonated as before, and so on, the successive impulses of the working fluid producing an almost continuous rotary effort. After a short lapse of time the chamber becomes heated to such a degree that the ignition device may be shut off without disturbing the established regime. This manner of starting the turbine involves the employment of an unduly large combustion chamber which is not commendable from the economic point of view, for not only does it entail increased heat losses but the explosions cannot be made to follow one another with such rapidity as would be desirable to insure the best valvular action. When the chamber is small an auxiliary means for starting, as compressed air, may be resorted to and a very quick succession of explosions can then be obtained.
