Abstract: At least three authors have offered proofs of the existence of a free inverse semigroup, but without describing its structure. This paper shows that if $ X$ is a nonempty set, $ G$ is the group on $ X$, and $ E$ is a certain subsemilattice of the power set of $ G$, then a certain collection of principal ideal isomorphisms of $ E$ is a free inverse semigroup on $ X$.
