the rock group "Tesla": on Amazon.com | website & BBS

The iconic double-exposure photograph of Tesla sitting amidst the lightning sparks at his Colorado Springs facility (circa 1899) shows him reading a book;
somebody took a magnifying glass and read the spine and discovered that Tesla was reading this book by Balkan-Italian scientist Roger Joseph Boscovich, SJ [1711-87].
(Tesla spoke eight languages, including Latin & Italian; this book was not published in English until 1922.)

Tesla reading Theory of Natural Philosophy book by Roger Joseph Boscovich  "Theory of Natural Philosophy Derived To The Single Law of Forces Which Exist In Nature (Philoso-phiๆ Naturalis Theoria Redacta ad Unicam Legem Virium in Natura Existentium)" [1758]
Boscovich's famous work contains his atomic theory and his theory of forces; the first edition was published in Vienna, Austria in 1758, a second edition was published in Venice, Italy in 1763, and a third edition was published again in Vienna in 1764; English translations were published in London in 1922 and in the United States in 1966. The Amazon entries below all seem to be facsimile editions made from the Latin-English book published by Open Court in London, U.K. in 1922.
