About this Item

Original printed wrappers on rippled paper, covers lightly toned around edges; interior clean with underlining by previous owner, Dr. Sten Lothigius of Stockholm An excellent copy. First separate appearance in print of Einstein's fundamental statement of the General theory of Relativity. Not an offprint from the Annalen der Physik as is often thought, but a completely new setting of type with significant and important additions and revisions, including an introduction published here for the first time which was not in the journal issue. According to Weil, this first edition may be identified by the presence of the printer's imprint "Druck von Metzger & Wittig in Leipzig" on verso of title, and :Metzger & Wittig, Leipzig" on the back wrapperFrom the library of Dr. Sten Lothigius, Swedish physicist with an affinity to the Nazi movement, an anti-Semite who wrote against the theory of relativity and Einstein. His book, Esquisse d'une theorie nouvelle de la lumiere (Sketch of a new theory of light), 1920, is noted in Christopher Jon Bjerkness, The manufacture and sale of Saint Einstein (see the website jewishracism).
