Albert Einstein (1879-1955) (PT76)

Personal letter signed by the legendary theorist

Easily considered one of the greatest minds of all time, Albert Einstein (1879-1955) was a brilliant mathematician, theoretical physicist and philosopher. He published over 300 scientific articles, won the 1921 Noble Prize in physics and is often regarded as the father of modern physics.

Autographed letter in German, signed "A. Einstein," one page, 8.25 x 11, blind-embossed personal Princeton, N.J. letterhead, October 13, 1937.

Einstein writes to Herr [Lionel] Ettlinger. In full (translated):

"I am sending today to your office address the agreed-upon letter. It is written in very strong language, but I think it will serve the purpose. I recommend that you get in touch regarding methods of propaganda, with my friend Dr. Bucky (5 East 76th Str.), who will introduce you to Prof. Felix Bernstein (New York University); the latter is one of the most intelligent men whom I have met anywhere in the world. Will see that this will benefit our cause".

Ettlinger was an activist who devoted a large portion of his personal financial resources to aiding the cause of Jewish refugees; Bernstein (1878-1956) was a prominent mathematician who developed an influential theorem of equivalence of sets.

In very good condition, with intersecting mailing folds (vertical fold to "E"), a few light creases and wrinkles, and light toning and a few chips to top and bottom edges. The signature is clear, dark and unaffected by any faults, and itself easily rates as fine.

(PT76) (M)
