Vital books containing priceless experiments and developments in the history of ELECTRICITY: 

The following books are printed at our museum from archives and are not included on the website.  Please visit Google Books and as well as various other rare book archives to obtain PDFs of these files.  Each and every book is worth having hard copies of, especially the works of Franklin, Haukesbee, Adams, Cavallo, Watson, Wilson, Nollet, von Guericke,...they are all amazing and each contains new or scarce information:

18 Years Cancer Free:

Many people email me asking if I know of any miracle "machines" to cure cancer. My answer is always the same,
sadly I do not.  One of my heroes as a kid continues to inspire me with this article.  I am more than happy to celebrate!
The miracle cancer cures are faith and caring.  And here's proof!
