It contains an additional chapter (Appendix III) written by Einstein for this edition, "The Experimental Confirmation of the General Theory of Relativity". Relativity: The Special & the General Theory is an account intended to be accessible to the general public, which Einstein tested by reading drafts to his step-daughter Margot, "pausing frequently to ask whether she indeed got it" (Isaacson, p. 232). Einstein took the opportunity to publish the present English language edition when interest in general relativity grew after the theory was confirmed experimentally by Arthur Eddington's eclipse observations of 1919.

        Ghost Stories

      London: 1920 - Third impression of the Pearson Cheap edition, originally published in 1916 and written by Prichard and his mother. The book comprises several experiences of Flaxman Low, credited as being the first psychic detective. The stories had been previously published in periodicals and collected in 1899's The Experiences of Flaxman Low, of which this current volume contains selections only. The book is Near Fine in publisher's red cloth, with no fading or marking. There is some bumping and minor wear to the extremities. The jacket is lovely, bright and crisp, with areas of modest wear and damage as befits an inexpensively produced 100-year-old book. There is no significant loss to the jacket at all. It is a lovely copy of a delicate book. Note that, despite Pearson's assertion on the spine, these stories are pure fiction, and delightful at that. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        MY BOOKHOUSE - MINIATURE HOUSE WITH BOOK

      - MILLER,OLIVE BEAUPRE. MY BOOKHOUSE - MINIATURE HOUSE WITH BOOKS. Offered here is a rare miniature version of the wooden Book House that was offered to owners of the regular size 9 volume Book House set published in the 1920's. The Book House for children was the brainchild of Olive Beaupre Miller who began her venture in 1920 by selling subscriptions to a six volume set, sold door to door by the Bookhouse Ladies one volume at a time. By the end of 1921, the 6th volume was completed and the set was offered in a cardboard house. The 3 other volumes of My Travelship were added in 1926 and a red and grey wooden book house was offered as an incentive to complete the set. "The utilization of women in all phases of its business activity was one of the unique aspects of the Book House For Children. Not only was there an all woman sales force but the majority of the employees were women (Talor: Olive Beaupre Miller p.30). The minature house offered here is not mentioned in the bibliography. It is an all metal version of the wooden house, measuring 3 1/4" wide x 5" high and 2 1/2" deep. The under side has the Bookhouse publication information stamped in black. Two miniature books are included measuring 2 1/8 x 2 1/2": "The Little Brown Duck Shingebiss", a Chippewa Indian tale plus "Johnny and the Three Goats" (both also contain parts of the Knights of the Silver Shield) all from Volumes 1 and 4 of the Book House. They are bound in flexible leatherette. The last page notes that this is the second Tiny Book. Both the books and the house are in excellent condition. This is a rare piece of American publishing for children.
