Einstein is known for developing the theory of relativity, which is one of the two pillars of modern physics. His work greatly influenced the philosophy of science, and for producing the world's most famous equation, 'E= mc2'. He won the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1921 for his services to theoretical physics, and for his discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect. The papers to this work include Einstein's papers on Bose-Einstein condensation, the phenomenon that causes bosons to become a superfluid at low temperatures. There is also Einstein's two part commentary on Kaluza's theory involving field equations in five-dimensional space. These papers are from the Royal Prussian Academy of Sciences, which was first established in 1700.

Condition

In uniform full cloth bindings. With the original paper wraps bound in. Externally, all volumes are very smart. Light fading to the spine. Light shelfwear to the joints. Small split to the front joint of 1929 volume. A few marks to the tail of spines, with evidence of library label removal. Internally, all volumes are firmly bound. Institutional stamp to the verso of original wraps bound in for the Bodleian Library, with their cancellation stamps. Repair to the front wrap of 1928 wrap. Minor chips to the occasional extremity. Pages are slightly age toned to edges due to paper used. Otherwise, pages are very clean.
