Albert Einstein is known by name and image throughout the world to people of all ages. He is probably the most well-known scientist of all time. Even though most people have only a vague idea of what he did, the attraction remains. The raison d’être for this book is to convey a sense of familiarity with Einstein as a real person and with the essence of his contributions. This is accomplished through annotated full-page photographs of Einstein that tell the story of his scientific life. The book is written for the general public. It may appeal to Einstein scholars as well.
This visual – and artistically beautiful – format differentiates Einstein: The Man And His Mind from all previous books about him. The images (mostly signed portrait photos) are supplemented by a selection of 53 rare letters, manuscripts, books, journals 51 original rare portraits 4 equations in Einstein’s handwriting provided by what is likely the largest private Einstein collection in existence. This project has the support of two private US foundations The Sterling Foundation and The Antonia & Vladimer Kulaev Cultural Heritage Fund, Inc. All royalties will be donated to the Albert Einstein Archives at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
