Relativity

By Einstein, Albert




The Nobel Prize-winning scientist's presentation of his landmark theoryAccording to Einstein himself, this book is intended "to give an exact insight into the theory of Relativity to those readers who, from a general scientific and philosophical point of view, are interested in the theory, but who are not conversant with the mathematical apparatus of theoretical physics." When he wrote the book in 1916, Einstein's name was scarcely known outside the physics institutes. Having just completed his masterpiece, The General Theory of Relativity—which provided a brand-new theory of gravity and promised a new perspective on the cosmos as a whole—he set out at once to share his excitement with as wide a public as possible in this popular and accessible book.*First time in Penguin Classics*New introduction by bestselling science author Nigel Calder

Relativity: The Special And General Theory.

Einstein, Albert

New York: Henry Holt and Company, 1920. First edition of Einstein's ground-breaking work. Octavo, original blue cloth. Signed by the author on the half-title page, "A. Einstein 50." In near fine condition with light rubbing and wear. Translated by Robert Lawson. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. First editions signed by Einstein of this cornerstone of scientific thought are exceptionally rare. It can hardly be disputed that the theories put forth in this book are among the most important in the history of modern science. "The imprint of Einstein's work on the different areas of physical science is so large and varied," writes Gerald Holton in a recent assessment, "that a scientist who tries to trace it would be hard put to know where to start" (Simmons, The Scientific 100).

Relativity - The Special and the General Theory - A Popular Exposition - in the original 5 shillings dust wrapper

Einstein, Albert

London: Methuen, 1920. A first edition, first printing published by Methuen in 1920. A very good+ (or better) book with one small name and date to the head of the front endpaper. Some foxing spots to the page edges (one to the prelims), with some light off-setting to the endpapers. Spine is very lightly faded, but the colour of the boards is strong. In the exceptionally scarce original dust wrapper correctly priced at 5/-. Two small archival tape repairs to closed tears on the spine (repaired internally). Patch of rubbing obscuring the 'T' and 'H' of Methuen to the foot of the spine. Some light chipping to the spine tips and corners. The wrapper may be a slightly later issue example given the list of books on the flaps, but this may be explained by the difference in years in terms of translations etc. To find this book in an original dust wrapper is scarce. The front panel of the book explains that Einstein's theory 'has made a new era in science'. Rare.

Rebound in striking red leather; spine with raised bands ruled in gilt, each compartment with decorative device in gilt, author and title compartments lettered in gilt; top and bottom boards with simple single-rule border in gilt. Binding tight; seemingly scarcely opened. Top-edge gilt. Foxing to fore-edge and bottom-edge. Foxing to half-title; else with only occasional spot of foxing at fore-margin and bottom-margin, corresponding from edge. Internally remarkably clean. Portrait frontispiece. Diagrams, formulae. With original 8pp of adverts bound at rear. An exceedingly collectible copy of this seminal work; truly, the importance of this work cannot be overstated. In specific regards to this edition, in addition to being the First English translation of Einstein's paradigm shifting work, it includes new text which was written by Einstein specifically for this edition at the request of the translator (Appendix III: "The Experimental Confirmation of the General Theory of Relativity"). The fourth appendix, "The Structure of Space according to the General Theory of Relativity," didn't appear in an English edition until the 14th edition (1946). [Relativity, 100th Anniversary Edition, Princeton UP, p.xx].
