Quarto. XIV, 377, [1]pp (Text), [4]pp (Publisher's advertisement). Original orange cloth, with black lettering on spine and front cover. Publisher's logo at tail of spine and on title page. First German edition of Sir Arthur Eddington's masterpiece in which he formulates mathematically his conception of the world of physics derived from the theory of relativity. The argument is developed in a form which throws light on the origin and significance of the great laws of physics; its consequences are followed to the full extent in the consideration of gravitation, relativity, mechanics, space-time, electromagnetic phenomena and world geometry. Some rubbing and soiling to binding. Front hinge slightly starting. Text in German. Binding in overall fair to good-, interior in good to very good condition. About the author: Sir Arthur Stanley Eddington (1882 -1944) was a British astronomer, physicist, and mathematician of the early 20th century who did his greatest work in astrophysics. He was also a philosopher of science and a popularizer of science. The Eddington limit, the natural limit to the luminosity of stars, or the radiation generated by accretion onto a compact object, is named in his honor. He is famous for his work regarding the theory of relativity. Eddington wrote a number of articles that announced and explained Einstein's theory of general relativity to the English-speaking world. World War I severed many lines of scientific communication and new developments in German science were not well known in England. He also conducted an expedition to observe the Solar eclipse of 29 May 1919 that provided one of the earliest confirmations of relativity, and he became known for his popular expositions and interpretations of the theory.
