A protracted battle between Pepper and Dircks ensued over the attribution of the invention. Even though Pepper included Dircks’s name on the patent, Dircks became upset over his name being omitted from much of the subsequent publicity. For more detailed — and conflicting — accounts of the patent dispute, see Henry Dircks, The Ghost (London: E. and F. N. Spon, 1863).
