Relativity: The Special And General Theory.



Item Number: 139101

London: Methuen and Co, 1920.

First edition of the scientist’s ground breaking work. Octavo, original red cloth, frontispiece of the author and with five diagrams. Near fine in the rare original dust jacket with light wear and rubbing. Translated by Robert W. Lawson. An exceptional example, uncommon in this condition.

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).
