Special issue of Nature devoted to the discovery of the theory of relativity with a specially commissioned article by Albert Einstein.

Printed paper wrappers with adverts to the covers, small annotation underlining the date of the publication on the upper cover. Stapled binding; closed tear where the lower of the two staples has rusted through the paper of the cover. Extensive adverts at either end of the magazine and a single quire in the middle paginated in roman numerals: cxciii-cciv and viii; text: pp781-820. A very good copy, a little finger marking to a couple of pages.

Einstein’s article occupies pages 782-784 with additional articles by E Cunningham, Frank Dyson, James Jeans, H.A. Lorentz, Oliver Lodge, Herman Weyl, A.S. Eddington, Norman Campbell, and Harold Jeffreys with a bibliography of relativity at the end. Abraham Pais notes in his Subtle is the Lord : The Science and the Life of Albert Einstein, that Einstein actually delayed the publication of the issue somewhat in his attempts to make a complicated issue fit in the space allotted space.
