The Century Illustrated Monthly Magazine - Vol LX : New Series Vol XXXVIII, May-Oct 1900 (Increasing Human Energy by Nikola Tesla)
New York / London: The Century Co. / Macmillan & Co., Ltd, 1900. Hardcover. Good. The first publication of Nikola Tesla's photographically illustrated work "The Problem of Increasing Human Energy, with Special Reference to the Harnessing of the Sun's Energy" and, with "Illustrated by the Writer's Electrical Experiments, Now First Published" stated both immediately under his name and in the table of contents. Three-quarter leather with brown cloth over boards, large 8vo (9-5/16 inches tall), pp. viii (index to Vol. VI), 960, 86 (ads), illustrated throughout. Six consecutive issues, all bound with front covers - but lacking back covers and terminal ads from all except the final issue. Volume covers worn, joints completely cracked, both hinges stregthened with an archival linen repair, a library rubber stamp to foot of text block edge, front pastedown and "withdrawal" stamp to ffep, text block slightly toned, marginally trimmed with an occasional soil spot or repaired tear noted. Both the Tesla article and it's front cover (Vol. XL No. 2) are clean and unmarked. An important and long essay by Tesla, who presents here (pp. 175-211) the first practical telautomation, many new energy-related experiments and muses "The scientific man does not aim at an immediate result. He does not expect that his advanced ideas will be readily taken up. His work is like that of the planter - for the future. His duty is to lay the foundation for those who are to come, and point the way. He lives and labors and hopes with the poet..." - most certainly an uncommon genius, within an uncommon man.
