Originally published during the early part of the twentieth century, the Cambridge Manuals of Science and Literature were designed to provide concise introductions to a broad range of topics. They were written by experts for the general reader and combined a comprehensive approach to knowledge with an emphasis on accessibility. Wireless Telegraphy by C. L. Fortescue was first published in 1913. The volume contains a technical account of the electrical phenomena involved in wireless telegraphy, followed by descriptions of its use in various practical contexts.
