First edition, first impression. Inscribed by the author on the title page, “Gesammelte Sünden [Collected Sins], Albert Einstein” under the printed title which has been struck through. Einstein’s inscription seems to refer to the German title, which means approximately “My World View”. This volume is rare signed and contains many essays by Einstein on such subjects as science, religion, politics, and philosophy, under five main sections: “The World As I See It”, “Of Politics and Pacifism”, “Germany 1933”, “Judaism”, and “Science”. Since his childhood in Prussia Einstein had been opposed to militant nationalism and enforced conformity, even renouncing his German citizenship for that of Switzerland as a teenager. As he grew in stature as a physicist he began using his celebrity to promote his philosophical ideals – internationalism, pacifism, and Zionism – earning him much vitriol from the far-right but endearing him to millions of others around the world. This edition is entirely in German, the first English edition being published in the same year.

Octavo. Original black cloth, titles to spine and front board gilt. With the dust jacket. Housed in a black cloth folding case. Ownership signature to front free endpaper. Light partial tanning to free endpapers. An excellent, sharp copy in the jacket which is rubbed and creased with toned spine panel, chips, closed tears, and a faint spot of dampstain to the upper panel.
