[Translated, anonymously, by Louis Zukofsky]. (With a Preface by Albert Einstein). Large octavo, red and gray cloth stamped in black, 225 pages, illustrated (reproducing black-and-white photographs). "Anton Reiser" is a pseudonym for Einstein's son-in-law, Rudolph Kayser. In Einstein's one-page preface, he writes that "The author of this book is someone who knows me rather intimately in my endeavor, thoughts, beliefs-- in bedroom slippers.". Signed and dated by Albert Einstein on the front flyleaf: "Albert Einstein 1944" [front flyleaf has faint offset browning, from newspaper clipping, evenly affecting Einstein's holograph signature, but Albert Einstein's signature is clear and bright]. An elusive title, 'Albert Einstein. A Biographical Portrait' is rarely encounted signed by the subject of this biography, Albert Einstein. Albert Einstein was awarded the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics. Former owner's neat ink notation on title page, beneath the author's printed name, stating in ink holograph (in an unknown hand): "pseud. of Louis Zukofsky (Zukofsky's first book)" [erroneously attributing authorship to Zukofsky, but correctly stating that this constitutes Zukofsky's first book]. Slight fading on spine, with light wear to cloth at tips of spine and corners, few faint soil marks, else a very good copy. First edition; Louis Zukofsky's first book (translated anonymously by Zukofsky). Seller Inventory # 65127

About this Item: Philosophical Library, New York, 1950. First edition of Einstein's collection of social science-related articles, addresses and speeches. Octavo, original cloth, frontispiece of Einstein. Signed by the author on the front free endpaper, "A. Einstein 52." With the ownership signature of Dr. Milnor Alexander, Los Angeles, California, 1952 on front pastedown. Alexander taught political science at Penn State University and was active in the women's movement and supporter of many societies promoting social welfare, the environment and the Labor movement. She has also inscribed below, "Autographed by Einstein for our fund-raiser for the Federation for Repeal of the Levering Act." The inscription on the pastedown is significant. Einstein is known to have endorsed the [successful] fight against having every California citizen/employee of the government pledge complete loyalty to the government no matter one's political affiliations. This was called the Levering Act. These strictures to be imposed on California government employees took place during the McCarthy era of seeking out Communist sympathizers, including the banning of alleged Communist-leaning Hollywood actors and directors. Fine in a near fine dust jacket. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. An exceptional association. Out of My Later Years is Einsteinís collection of essays considering everything that interests him as a scientist, philosopher and humanitarian. Einsteinís essays share how one of the greatest minds of all time interprets the changing world of his time. Seller Inventory # 55054

About this Item: 1921. Etched portrait of Albert Einstein by well-known Polish-American Jewish artist Lionel S. Reiss. Signed by both Einstein and Reiss. In fine condition. Double matted and framed, the entire piece measures 13.5 inches by 16.5 inches. An exceptional piece. Polish-American Jewish painter Lionel S. Reiss immigrated with his parents to the United States in 1898 at the age of four, joining the ranks of other Eastern European Jews fleeing their native countries at the start of the 20th century. His family settled in New York's Lower East Side where Reiss would ultimately spend the majority of his life and become an established portraitist, particularly known for his intimate portraits of Jewish people. In 1938, Reiss published his book My Models Were Jews in which he argued against the idea of a singular "Jewish Ethnicity" and that the Jewish people were rather a cultural group composed of a number of significantly diverse communities.

Einstein's work is also known for its influence on the philosophy of science. Einstein is best known in popular culture for his mass-energy equivalence formula E = mc2 (which has been dubbed "the world's most famous equation"). He received the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics for his "services to theoretical physics", in particular his discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect, a pivotal step in the evolution of quantum theory (David Bodanis).

About this Item: np, Princeton, 1934. No Binding. Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. AN IMPORTANT SIGNED LETTER (in English) by Einstein, revealing his reservations of associating with communism even in the fight against fascism. Written from Princeton, NJ, to Professor Albert Sprague Coolidge of Harvard University, and dated February 16, 1934, the letter reads: My dear Professor Coolidge: I had an opportunity of meeting personally Lord Marley and has [sic] very favorably impressed by his personality. It became known to me that he sympathizes with the Russian Government, i.g. with the Russian communist party and that the committee for which he is active is influenced by communists. The problem as to the attitude which is advisable to be taken towards this committee is rather complicated. On the one hand, the world-wide danger of fascism makes it necessary that all enemies of fascism cooperate; on the other hand, an action which has communist leanings might endanger that fight since the important task undertaken in defense of culture and civilization may be linked up with interests of a political party. I, myself have severed my connections with the committee, which, with my permission had used my name up to the end of last year. It seems to me advisable to take an attitude as follows: to help their action against fascism, but not to identify oneself with the committee. Very truly yours, [signed] A. Einstein P.S. I wish you would be good enough to use this strictly confidentially. In 1934, Lord (Baron) Marley (Dudley Leigh Aman), toured the United States to raise funds for his association, the World Committee for the Victims of German Fascism. Marley, through his committee, was "passionately advocating a scheme for which he was to become an international figurehead - resettlement of oppressed German and Polish Jews in the Jewish Autonomous Region" in Siberia. He published a book, "The Brown Book of the Hitler Terror and the Burning of the Reichstag, sponsored by the World Committee and with an Introduction written by Lord Marley himself, [which] was the first popular exposé of what was happening in Hitler's Germany. It documented the destruction of political parties, trade unions and universities, book-burning, and the building of concentration camps. "At a fundraising dinner held in his honour in New York in February 1934 [where Einstein presumably met him, just before writing this letter], Marley opened the Brown Book and 'speaking quietly, declaring that he did not intend to harrow', read aloud to his audience of 600 American Jews some of the collected evidence of Nazi repressions. Here were documentary records of what was happening in Germany - a substantiation of the brutality that hitherto had had no distinct form in the mind of the American Jewish public. What before had been the subject of a growing fear mingled with disbelief was now being presented as hard fact and supported with detailed evidence. The New York Times (8 February 2005) reports the audience being 'startled' by the disclosures, and the night ending with $3,500 raised for the World Committee" (The Jewish Quarterly, No. 198). Einstein was correct to be suspicious of Marley's activities, for it was later determined that the "World Committee" was indeed a Communist front; Einstein, writing here to Coolidge in 1934, was prescient about the motives of the committee. This letter, in addition to underscoring Einstein's passionate stance against fascism, is particularly important as documentary evidence of Einstein's caution about having any dealings with communism, especially considering that the U.S. FBI, worried about Einstein's political leanings, kept a file on Einstein that grew to 1427 pages. Princeton, NJ: February 16, 1934. One (8.5 x 11 in.) page. Envelope folds, minor spotting. An outstanding letter with important and revealing content. Seller Inventory # 1478
