by WEAVER, William Dixon (1857-1919).
New York:: American Institute of Electrical Engineers, 1909., 1909. Two volumes. 8vo. vii, 504; 475 pp. 2 frontispiece portraits, 113 plates, indices. Mustard gilt-stamped cloth; rubbed. Very good. Weaver's "gift" was in persuading Andrew Carnegie to donate the cost of constructing the building to house the Institute's library. Weaver was Chair of the library Committee for 6 years, and oversaw many of its purchases. A plaque at the library now honors his role in building the collection and securing the Carnegie gift. Brother Potamian was a brother of the Christian Schools. Before taking his vows he was named Dr. Michael O'Reilly, a physician specializing in radiotelegraphy and radiography. The annotated catalogue, considered the best collection of books relating to the history of electricity, contains topically arranged 5,966 items, with a supplement on the telegraph.
