Nikola Tesla slideshow: Images and articles from Tesla's writings
Steve Taranovich - September 13, 2012
John Ratzlaff compiled 25 years of research on Nikola Tesla in his book, “Tesla Said” (now out of print with one used copy on Amazon last time I looked for $350). The book is a collection including photocopies of original newspaper and magazine articles and other documents written by Tesla from 1888 to 1939.
In this slideshow, we present a sampling of images and excerpts from this collection, which are all obtainable on the Internet. The image files included here were graciously provided by John Piliounis, a physicist/electronics engineer in Athens, Hellas (Greece).
Some examples of the articles in this book include:
- "On the Dissipation of the Electrical Energy of the Hertz Resonator"
- "Application of Tubes of High Illuminating Power to Photography and Other Purposes"
- "The Transmission of Electrical Energy Without Wire As a Means for Furthering Peace"
- "Nikola Tesla's Plan to Keep 'Wireless Thumb' on Ships at Sea"
