Princeton, NJ: Princeton University Press, 1950. Octavo. 150pp. Third edition. With the facsimile of a fragment of a typed letter signed by Einstein, which has been pasted inside the front cover. In the letter, he praises the work of the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists, and closes by saying, "I thank you for your interest in our common problem-- the search for those truths which serve all mankind." For this third edition of one of his most important books, first published in 1922, Einstein added an appendix on his Generalized Theory of Gravitation. Bound in gray cloth, gilt-titled to spine. Ownership inscription of Philippe LeCorbellier, professor of Applied Physics at Harvard, on front free endpaper. Slight wear to spine ends, else about fine. Lacking the dust wrapper.
