Methuen & co. Ltd. London. 1920.
FIRST ENGLISH EDITION. 8vo. (7.7 x 5.2 inches). Portrait frontis and five line diagrams within the text. 8pp publishers adverts at back of book. A very good, clean and bright copy in publishers original red cloth with blind stamped lettering to front board, within a blind ruled border, and gilt lettering and ruling to spine. Spine lettering is dulled and the cloth is slightly, but uniformly, faded but still overall a very good bright copy. Previous owner's bookplate on paste down endpaper and another owner's neat name written on the front free endpaper, dated 1961. Some light offsetting to both free endpapers from the pastedowns and the top outer corners of the boards are a bit bumped but overall this is a very good copy. ---- This important translation, apart from being the first English edition, also contains new text written by Einstein specially for this edition; Appendix III, The Experimental Confirmation of the General Theory of Relativity.
