Ernst Haas apparently photographed Einstein in 1951, so the timing is correct.Einstein sent this letter to Dammann in care of Café Old Europe at 2182 Broadway in New York City, an "exile café" that became an "international social center," for displaced Austrian and German Jews, offering dining, dancing, and entertainment.

Description:
SIGNED First Edition of Hazlitt's rarest title. Integrating his two [timary interests, literary criticism and economics, Hazlitt reflects that struggle in the form of a trialogue. His characters debate the question of literary value, and pushes forward the proposition that the value of literature is discerned and revealed through the operation of the "social mind. Further, Hazlitt offers an extra bonus here, a postscript on the rise of Marxism in literary criticism. This highly significant essay was likely the first prominent attack on Marxist literary deconstructionism published! Lacks the exceedingly rare dust jacket. Small stain on front flyleaf, not affecting Hazlitt's inscription or signature. No other writings or markings of any kind. Book #P2125. $1595. We specialize in rare Ayn Rand, history, and science.
