Published 1998, second revised and supplemented edition, 32 pages, 21cm, Albert Einstein-Society, Bern, in German only.


by Bernd Platte, Ludwigshafen / Germany, committee member of the Arbeitsgemeinschaft der Autographensammler (AdA) in Germany, 1998

This small booklet contains a nice selection of Einstein autographs of variable importance. Inside you will discover not only the manuscript page showing the most well-known equation in physics: E=mc2. Also you will find Einstein’s famous letter to Roosevelt – one can scarcely imagine a history book without it – as well as letters which are likely to be unknown to most readers. Einstein’s letter to Thomas Mann on April 23, 1933, written in Ostend, to my knowledge has never been printed before.

Author: Albert Einstein

Published in 1929, 1st and only edition, 34 pages, 22 cm, „Soncino-Gesellschaft der Freunde des jüdischen Buches“ (Soncino Society of Friends of Jewish Books), Berlin

On the occasion of the 50th birthday of Albert Einstein (March 14, 1929) this book was published by the Soncino Society of Friends of Jewish Books. It was published as a unique edition of 800 copies as private print in German.

The preface says:

“… The following pages contain some comments – most of them letters – of Albert Einstein, who knows to find remarkable words out of the depth of his wonderful rich personality – even when it comes to seemingly remote areas. Exactly this private Einstein who also takes part in the time and the people of today even beyond his area, who is miles apart from being a scientific solitary person, do we get to know in this his transcripts which were caused by outer events and occasions.”

Very rare!
