    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.
