Weil #129a.  Boni #xxx.  Original BLUE/GREEN textured boards with Clean Gilt Letters on Spine A Very Fine copy of this RARE BOOK.

London: Methuen, 1926. - First Edition in English. viii, 124 pp; 3 diagrams. Very Fine. Weil 129a (English translations of Weil 8, 11, 7a, 41, 20, 25). 'In his doctoral dissertation, submitted to the University of Zurich in 1905, Einstein developed a statistical molecular theory of liquids. Then, in a separate paper, he applied the molecular theory of heat to liquids in obtaining an explanation of what had been, unknown to Einstein, a decades-old puzzle. Observing microscopic bits of plant pollen suspended in still water, English botanist Robert Brown had noticed in 1828 that even tinier particles mixed in with the pollen exhibited an incessant, irregular 'swarming' motion — since called 'Brownian motion.'

Although atoms and molecules were still open to objection in 1905, Einstein predicted that the random motions of molecules in a liquid impacting on larger suspended particles would result in irregular, random motions of the particles, which could be directly observed under a microscope. The predicted motion corresponded precisely with the puzzling Brownian motion! From this motion Einstein accurately determined the dimensions of the hypothetical molecules' (David Cassidy, 'The Challenge of Heat', in Einstein and Our World, 1995, with reference to this 1926 English edition).

As Fürth was a member of the physics department at Birkbeck College, London, and made his own contributions to this English translation (see Weil 129A), the London (Methuen & Co.) imprint is thought to take priority over the New York imprint (Dutton) of the same year. [Attributes: FIRST EDITION].  Listed as the first English edition in Weil (See Weil 129A) followed by the New York edition (E. P. Dutton & Co., of the same year).

1949 - Albert Einstein Philosopher/Scientist, [A Biography/Bibliography], Schilpp-Shields -  FIRST EDITION

Albert Einstein, Philosopher/Scientist, 1949

Hey, I woulda picked a happier Einstein picture.  This must be the "philosopher" photo.  Unfortunately, Einstein looks like he just lost his dog.  I will check but my guess is that this photo may have been taken by Youseff Karsh.   I say that because he is a famous celebrity photographer who did have a significant photo session with Dr. Einstein, and more to the point, Mr. Karsh typically liked to have his subject place his hands in the photo.
