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).
