6 editions published between 1977 and 1986 in English and held by 177 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'The Inventions, Researches and Writings of Nikola Tesla' is the record of the pioneering work of a great genius and inventor. During the early twentieth century Tesla blazed the path that electrical development followed for many years to come, and this book brings together many of the findings and theories that made him famous (and to some, infamous). This volume shows not only the scope of Tesla's theories and inventions, but allows contemporary readers to experience the amazing range of his thinking. There is great intellectual profit in studying a vigorous and original mind, and Nikola Tesla was one of the most energetic and visionary thinkers of this century. 'The Inventions, Researches and Writings of Nikola Tesla' includes lectures, articles and discussions, particularly those bearing on polyphase motors and the effects obtained with currents of high potential and high frequency. Many of his later dicoveries are based on these findings, and they afford a rare glimpse of a great genius at work. Nikola Tesla was born in Croatia in 1856. He emigrated to the United States in 1884 and worked for a short time for Thomas Edison. A pioneer in the field of high-tension electricity, Tesla made many discoveries and inventions of lasting value to the development of radio transmission and electricity, one of the most famous of which was the power system at Niagara Falls. He died in 1943"--

Meine Erfindungen : eine Autobiographie by Nikola Tesla( Book )

22 editions published between 1919 and 2018 in 6 languages and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nikola Tesla has been called the most important man of the twentieth century. Certainly, he contributed more to the field of electricity, radio, and television than any other person living or dead. Ultimately he died alone and impoverished having driven all of his friends away through his neurotic and eccentric behavior. Tesla was never able to fit into the world that he found himself in. This autobiography, originally serialized in 'Electrical Experimenter', is an intensely fascinating glimpse into the mind of a genius, his inventions, and the magical world in which he lived

Part philosophical ponderings on humanity's relationship to the universe, part scientific extrapolation on what technological advancement might bring to that understanding, this long essay, first published in Century Illustrated Magazine in June 1900, is yet another example of the genius of Serbian inventor NIKOLA TESLA (1857-1943), the revolutionary scientist who forever changed the scientific fields of electricity and magnetism. From the possibilities presented by robotics to the ""civilizing potency of aluminum, "" from a ""self-acting engine"" to one of the first proposals to use solar powe

New system of alternating current motors and transformers and other essays by Nikola Tesla( )

3 editions published between 2012 and 2018 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nikola Tesla was a genius who revolutionized how the world looks at electricity. During college his professors explained that it was impossible to design an engine without commutators or brushes. Tesla was unconvinced that such was necessary or even particularly desirable. It was then that Tesla began his work on the rotating field motor that ultimately gave birth to the modern age. In May of 1888, Tesla delivered his lecture "A new system of alternating current motors and transformers" before The American Institute of Electrical Engineers and the world has never been the same
