EINSTEIN IN CAPUTH, INCLUDING AN ORIGINAL INK DOODLE, CANDID PHOTOGRAPHS, AND EINSTEIN HELPING A YOUNG GIRL WITH A MATH PROBLEM. An eclectic group of material painting a wonderfully candid portrait of Einstein. The material originates with the family of the German-Jewish architect Adolf Stern, who along with his wife Elsbeth and daughters Inge and Irene were the Einsteins' neighbors in Caputh, the little village six kilometers south of Potsdam where Einstein spent his summers from 1929-1932. Along with the whimsical doodle of a man peering through a telescope at a sailboat beside Einstein's signature in the Sterns' guestbook, the collection contains numerous photographs of Einstein in moments of leisure with the Sterns and other Caputh neighbors and friends (including one of Einstein sitting on the laps of two elderly gentleman while smoking a pipe); picking apples with Elsa; with son Hans and two year-old grandson Bernhard; sailing; and photos of the Einstein house in Caputh. Also present is a large portrait photograph of Einstein, being one of a series done by Tycko at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles in 1933, and four photos of Einstein with the Fred Hirsch family at the Highland Springs Resort in Cherry Valley, California. Also included is an unusual Einstein relic of great charm: a sheet of trigonometric calculations in pencil with an equation at the bottom in Einstein's hand, which according to the Stern family represents Einstein's attempts to help Irene Stern with a school problem.
