The Strange Life of Nikola Tesla
Editors Note, August 28, 1995
This text has been entered by John R.H. Penner from a small booklet found in aused bookstore for $2.50. The only form of date identiﬁcation is the name of theoriginal purchaser, Arthua Daine (?), dated April 29, 1978.The book appears to be considerably older, made with typewriters, and thenphotocopied and stapled. The only other signiﬁcant features of the booklet is that itcontains four photocopied photographs of Tesla, and was originally forty pageslong. I must apologise for the qualitty of the scans, but the originals were of verypoor quality, and this is the best that could be obtained after touching-up inPhotoshop.The book has no Copyright identification, nor any means of contacting thepublishers. As far as I am aware, this autobiography is no longer available in printedform anywhere.In the interest of making this important text available to the wider public, I haveretyped the entire text word-for-word as it originally appears into this electronicformat. The only words which appear in this ﬁle, that are not in the original book are this Editors Note, and the Introduction. I have exactly maintained page numbersas they appear in the original – including the somewhat odd artifact of Chapter 1starting on page two.If anyone knows how to reach the original publisher, please contact me at the belowaddress, so proper credit may be given where it is due.John Roland Hans Penner464 Scott StreetSt. Catharines, OntarioL2M 3W7, CanadaPhone: 905.646.3551eMail: J.Penner@GEnie.GEIS.comThis ﬁle may be freely redistributed as long as it’s content is not modiﬁed in anyway.
