From the 1893 foreword, 'The present volume is a simple record of the pioneer work done in such departments up to date, by Mr Nikola Tesla, in whom the world has already recognised one of the foremost of modern electrical investigators and inventors. No attempt whatever has been made here to emphasise the importance of his researches and discoveries. Great ideas and real inventions win their own way, determining their own place by intrinsic merit. But with the conviction that Mr Tesla is blazing a path that if electrical development must follow for many years to is worthy of preservation.'
