ALBERT EINSTEIN

 

RELATIVITY: THE SPECIAL AND THE GENERAL THEORY, A Popular Exposition by ALBERT EINSTEIN, Ph.D., Translated by Robert W. Lawson, D.Sc., 1920

First English Translation in original first issue dust jacket.  Published in London, England, 1920.

There are many ideas in the world.  But only a few have truly changed our perception of the world and the universe that surrounds us.  Euclid's Geometry.  Newton's PRINCIPIA.  Maxwell's TREATISE ON ELECTRICITY AND MAGNETISM.  Riemann's curved space.   Einstein's RELATIVITY is one of the most powerful!

Book is very good plus condition with light foxing to pages and glue stains in gutters of end-papers.  Dust jacket has light sunning, some chipping and short-tears at folds.  Overall, a very good copy of an incredibly significant book.

 

THE MEANING OF RELATIVITY, first British edition, 1922

"... But never again as during that all too short period when he and I were one person, when the fulfilled future and the wistful past were mingled in a single gorgeous moment -- when life was literally a dream...."  F. Scott Fitzgerald, from 'Early Success,' The Crack Up, October 1937
