OUT OF MY LATER YEARS

(New York: The Philosophical Library , 1950).

FIRST EDITION. Very few men of genius have been as universally loved as Albert Einstein, and this collection of essays presents him at his most protean and accessible. The author applies both his genius and his acute moral perceptions to subjects including race relations, militarism, socialism, religion, education, the role of science in public life, and the Holocaust.
Although Einstein the humanist philosopher is most in evidence here, the book does not ignore his role as the century’s pre-eminent physicist, and includes eight essays that explain relativity and the fundamentals of theoretical physics in (relatively) simple terms. Item #70136

First Edition. With a portrait frontispiece of Albert Einstein. 8vo, publisher's original turquoise blue cloth lettered in gilt on a royal blue background on the spine panel and with a facsimile of Einstein's signature in gilt on the upper cover, in the original printed and decorated dustjacket. [4], 282 pp. A very fine copy, the book near as pristine and as mint, the jacket especially well preserved, bright and handsome with only minimal evidence of age or handling.
