The lecture "Experiments with Alternate Currents of High Potential and High Frequency," IEE Address, London, February 1892 is posted at http://www.tfcbooks.com/tesla/1892-02-03.htm.

Also take a look at "Electrical Oscillators," Electrical Experimenter, July 1919. The text of which is available online at http://www.tesla.hu/tesla/articles/19190700/19190700.doc. An index to the illustrations which accompany the article is posted at http://www.tesla.hu/tesla/articles/19190700/index.htm. An index to more articles, etc. is posted at http://www.tesla.hu/tesla/tesla.htm.

A related piece is "Tesla's Oscillator and other Inventions" by T.C. Martin, Century Magazine, April 1895, pp. 916-933 posted at http://cdl.library.cornell.edu/cgi-bin/moa/pageviewer?frames=1&coll=moa&view=50&root=%2Fmoa%2Fcent%2Fcent0049%2F&tif=00924.TIF&cite=http%3A%2F%2Fcdl.library.cornell.edu%2Fcgi-bin%2Fmoa%2Fmoa-cgi%3Fnotisid%3DABP2287-0049-178.

And, you should also be aware of Tesla's U.S. Patent No. 593,138, Nov. 2, 1897, "Electrical Transformer," which covers Tesla coils in general. It is available at http://www.keelynet.com/tesla/00593138.pdf. See http://www.keelynet.com/tesla/ for additional Tesla patents.

Does anyone know where to find the original published paper by Tesla
describing the tesla coil (if there was one)? I'm hoping to cite him in
my thesis which has a section on plasma physics and a picture of my
coil in operation. I think it'd be cool to have a Tesla reference.
