You are offerding ona rarehardcover book titled Easy Lessons in Einstein - A Discussion of the More Intelligible Features of the Theory of Relativity. By Edwin E. Slosson. With an Article by Albert Einstein and a bibliography. Published by Harcourt, Brace and Company, 1920. This is the scarce First Edition.

Albert Einstein , (1879 - 1955) was a German-born theoretical physicist who developed the theory of general relativity, effecting a revolution in physics. For this achievement, Einstein is often regarded as the father of modern physics and one of the most prolific intellects in human history. He received the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics "for his services to theoretical physics, and especially for his discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect". The latter was pivotal in establishing quantum theory within physics. Near the beginning of his career, Einstein thought that Newtonian mechanics was no longer enough to reconcile the laws of classical mechanics with the laws of the electromagnetic field. This led to the development of his special theory of relativity. He realized, however, that the principle of relativity could also be extended to gravitational fields, and with his subsequent theory of gravitation in 1916, he published a paper on the general theory of relativity. He continued to deal with problems of statistical mechanics and quantum theory, which led to his explanations of particle theory and the motion of molecules. He also investigated the thermal properties of light which laid the foundation of the photon theory of light. In 1917, Einstein applied the general theory of relativity to model the structure of the universe as a whole. He was visiting the United States when Adolf Hitler came to power in 1933, and did not go back to Germany, where he had been a professor at the Berlin Academy of Sciences. He settled in the U.S., becoming a citizen in 1940. On the eve of World War II, he helped alert President Franklin D. Roosevelt that Germany might be developing an atomic weapon, and recommended that the U.S. begin similar research; this eventually led to what would become the Manhattan Project. Einstein was in support of defending the Allied forces, but largely denounced using the new discovery of nuclear fission as a weapon. Later, together with Bertrand Russell, Einstein signed the Russell-Einstein Manifesto, which highlighted the danger of nuclear weapons. Einstein was affiliated with the Institute for Advanced Study at Princeton, New Jersey, until his death in 1955.

Book comes with the original dustjacket but the dustjacket is very tattered and is missing some big pieces. The dustjacket is in poor condition but it helps to protect the book. Pages are clean and tightly bound with some toning to the title page. Covers are securely attached with no splitting or cracking of hinges. No writing in book and no signs of previous ownership. The book is in very good condition.

A rare first edition!

Great gift idea!
