Ya, I'd say that's just a little outdated. But it was a whole 6 years after
the first incandescant lightbulb by Mr. Edison. and about 3 years after the
Wright Bro's 1913 flight.
I'll have to get my grubby little paws on an edition of that book, too.
I've got a book on the writings of Nikola Tesla. It's kind of hard to read(
I often need to read paragraphs several times before I understand them.)
But it's very interesting. Hold on while I run upstairs and get it.:)
Ok, I'm back. It's called The Inventions, Researches And Writings Of Nikola
Tesla. It's a thick brown paperback and it should be easy to find at your
local bookstore. I saw it the moment I walk over to that bookshelf and just
had to buy it, so I did. I recommend you do, too. It's even got pictures
and schematics! Lots of them. It's very, very usefull.

....my first few coils were based on info from a book 'HIGH FREQUENCY
APPARATUS' by Thomas Curtis , a reprint from 1916, ....a "little" out
dated, but a good starting point for me, several diff sized coils, info on
glass plate caps, gaps and constructing your own high voltage supply
Xfrmr. Back in 1985, I think, I saw a show down at the Denver planitarium
called 'ZAP'. where they had a large T.Coil on stage, and people were
lighting florecent tubes in the front row,.....I dont know who built that
coil, but after that show, I got the spark bug !
