While this one-of-a-kind book from 1986 is more of an
engineering analysis of Tesla coil operation than a guide to their
construction, it does provide the Tesla coil builder with some
alternative views on the configuration of these devices. Written at a
time when most coilers were focusing their attention on the
"classic" Tesla coil design, the author recognizes the
advantages to be gained by inclusion of a base-driven helical resonator
or extra coil, and gives suggestions as to how oscillator performance
may be optimized. The book closes out with a reprint of Fritz
Lowenstein's 14 page paper titled CAPACITIES, presented in 1915 before
The Institute of Radio Engineers.
