But it's a fact that the United States Patent and Trademark Office has registered 112 patents of Nikola Tesla.
Like many, we have always been fascinated by old technical illustration and, specifically, "cut-away" illustrations.We introduce you to our 500-page book of Tesla's patents registered in the USA, arranged chronologically with their illustrations and patent description.
