"The Inventions, Researches and Writings of Nikola Tesla" is a book compiled and edited by Thomas Commerford Martin detailing the work of Nikola Tesla. The book is a comprehensive compilation of Tesla's work and profusely illustrated. Written at the end of the 19th century, the book is a record of Tesla's pioneering activities, research, and works. Tesla is recognized as one of the foremost electrical investigators and inventors. At the time of publication, the book was the "bible" of every electrical engineer practicing the profession. The book includes Tesla's lectures, miscellaneous articles and discussions, and makes note of all his inventions up to the date of publication, particularly polyphase motors and the effects obtained with currents of high potential and high frequency. The book demonstrates that Tesla continued on the scientific frontier, barely pausing for an instant to work out details of utilization that may have at once been obvious to him. Wherever possible his own language was employed in the writing of the book.
