More details about this item

RELATIVITY The Special and General Theory by Dr. Albert Einstein Published by Henry Holt, New York in 1920 First American Edition (and the first non-technical work written by Albert Einstein about his Theory of General and Special Relativity in English) AN IMPORTANT AND SIGNIFICANT BOOK Overall a very good copy in the first edition of a very important book, with title page dated 1920 and published in New York by Henry Holt and Company, and with the frontis portrait of Einstein. The book is in its original blue cloth with a bit of soiling to boards, as shown in my photos, and with two faint white soil areas to rear board (that could be removed by a conservator). Front cover imprinting in dulled gold, spine imprinting in dulled green as is usually found with this rare book. The front upper right corner of the front cover is a bit bumped and what looks like a damp stain from long ago. This bumping extends to about the first 33 pages or so, but not objectionable, but noted here. The blue cloth spine ends have been pushed in over the many decades with two horizontal splits in the cloth as shown in my photos, but no loss of the blue cloth. There is no real shelving wear to the corners of the boards, which is uncommon. This book is square and sound without NY cocking or slant to the volume. The interior hinges are sound, the end papers clean (a small circular book-sellers label affixed to the inner corner of the rear fixed end paper). End papers with very light foxing to the first four leaves of the book and seven leaves at the end of the book. The front free fixed endpaper has a faint name stamp of a former owner, as shown. The interior pages are clean, unmarked with the top corners of pages 33 to 44 once folded down, but long ago straightened out. This is a very important book by one of the greatest minds of our age. It is divided into three parts: The Special Theory of Relativity, The General Theory of Relativity and Considerations on the Universe As A Whole.
