Includes the following articles: Band 35 - Elementare Betrachtungen (W42) & Ueber den Einfluss (W*43). First is on specific heat. Second is a major paper of General Relativity on gravity and light propagation., Band 38 - Lichtgeschwindigkeit (W47) & Zur theorie dees statischen gravitationsfeldes (W48) & Antwort auf Eine Bemerkung (W49) & Relativitaet und Gravitation (W50) & Nachtrang to W46. First two are related and sequential papers chronicling the early development of General Relativity, with especial regard for the Equivalence Principle -- Einstein here showing that the Lorentz transformation of Special Relativity must be generalized to accommodate light in a gravitational field, and the new theory of gravitation must be non-linear.
