Albert Einstein Autograph Sales

In July 2017, Nate D. Sanders Auctions sold this Albert Einstein autograph on a photo for $125,000:

Very rare Albert Einstein autograph on his photo, on the occasion of the Nobel Prize winner playfully sticking out his tongue to a group of photographers on his 72nd birthday. Photo was snapped on 14 March 1951 by Arthur Sasse, a UPI photographer whose employers were at first hesitant about publishing the iconoclastic image of Einstein; when they did, Einstein was so amused by it that he ordered several prints to give out to close friends. This image is unlike most which crop the photo to show only Einstein. Here, the photo is shown in its full context with Einstein seated between Dr. Frank Aydelotte, head of the Institute of Advanced Study in Princeton, and Aydelotte’s wife, after celebrating his birthday at the Princeton Club. Photo is signed along the left margin ”A. Einstein .51”, indicating he signed the image shortly after it was taken. Albert Einstein autograph photo measures 7” x 10”. Very good to near fine condition. Extraordinarily rare Albert Einstein autograph on his photo, the most famous and beloved image of him.  Sold for $125,000.

In March 2017, Nate D. Sanders Auctions sold this Albert Einstein autograph on a letter for $53,504:

Remarkable Albert Einstein Autograph Letter Signed, Along  With His Initialed Drawings — Explaining the Science Behind His Groundbreaking Work on Electrostatic Theory and Special Relativity

Albert Einstein autograph letter signed with his hand drawings, elegantly explaining his electrostatic theory of special relativity to a physics teacher struggling to reconcile it with experiments he was conducting. In addition to the letter, which is new to the market, Einstein generously replies to a series of questions the teacher asks him on a questionnaire, providing additional drawings and calculations, initialed ”A.E.” at the conclusion.

Dated 4 September 1953 on Princeton’s Institute for Advanced Study letterhead, Einstein writes to Arthur L. Converse, the teacher from Malcolm, Iowa, in part, ”There is no difficulty to explain your present experiment on the basis of the usual electrostatic theory. One has only to assume that there is a difference of potential between the body of the earth and higher layers of the atmosphere, the earth being negative relatively to those higher layers…[Einstein then draws Earth and the atmosphere, referring to it for clarification] The electric potential p rises linearly with the distance h from the surface of the earth…For all your experiments the following question is relevant: How big is the electric charge produced on a conductor which is situated in a certain height h, this body being connected with the earth…”

Einstein then answers Converse’s questions on a two-page questionnaire. In one answer, Einstein seems to disagree with the question, providing both a diagram and mathematical equation and then a ”?” to try to aid understanding. He later writes ”not clear” to one answer along with a question mark and additional diagram with the notation ”charge of elektroscope increased proportional to h”. An extraordinary lot by Einstein showing the generosity of his time, with rare content on his theory of special relativity. Single page letter and two-page questionnaire each measures 8.5” x 11”.

Also included is Einstein’s original mailing envelope from ”Room 115” of the Institute for Advanced Study, postmarked 7 September 1953 from Princeton. Folds and very light toning to letter, otherwise near fine. Questionnaire has folds, light toning and staple mark, otherwise near fine with bold handwriting by Einstein. Dark Albert Einstein autograph.  With an LOA from the nephew of Arthur Converse and new to the market.
Sold for $53,504.

In June 2018, Nate D. Sanders Auctions sold this Albert Einstein autograph letter signed regarding helping Jewish people for $31,250:

Einstein and Nazism in 1938: ”…buckets of letters are coming in, whole stacks full of persecuted and desperate victims of the current situation…Only when you are dead will you be safe…”

Exceptional autograph letter signed by Albert Einstein in 1938, on helping Jews and other persecuted people flee German-held countries in Europe, even using his own funds to do so. Writing on 14 December 1938 to his sister Maja Winteler-Einstein in Switzerland, Einstein instructs Maja to leave Switzerland for the United States, and then writes of his work in helping others in danger. German letter translates in full,

”Dear Sister! / I believe that you should come over here soon to visit me, then wait and see how things will develop from here on. For this, you will need a visitor’s visa, which the American consul will issue. For you, most likely the one in Naples will be applicable (or, on the other hand, perhaps the Swiss one, i.e., the American consul in Zurich). I am attaching a letter for you here that will help you obtain the visitor’s visa more easily. As soon as you have the visa or at least know that you will get it soon, please let me know by when you will be able to travel. I will then take care of everything and will send everything to you at a suitable Swiss address that you will have to provide.

As a sideline, I am now working as some sort of itinerant relief committee and buckets of letters are coming in, whole stacks full of persecuted and desperate victims of the current situation. I sent some money to Marie Dr., and I am helping the Ulm [city in Germany] relatives with emigrating. It is easy for the young ones, but difficult for the old ones. People such as Paul Moos will have to be taken to safety in a neighboring country and will have to be modestly provided for. I will have to use a large part of my income for such permanent benefits and services. Gumpertz will have to leave as well (sic transit Gloria mundi [thus passes the glory of the world]). Only when you are dead will you be safe. The most difficult thing will be finding a country that will accept the old people, even if one provides a modest livelihood for them. That is how things have turned out by now!

Pauli [Maja’s husband] will now become familiar with the life of an old bachelor as well. Maybe he could actually take in Marie, with whom I exchanged a few letters. Loving greetings to all of you from your / Albert.” Letter runs just over one page on a 8.5” x 11” sheet. Separation starting along bottom vertical fold; overall very good plus condition. Sold for $31,250.

In August 2017, Nate D. Sanders Auctions sold this Albert Einstein autograph letter signed regarding Hitler for $31,250:

1938 Albert Einstein Autograph Letter Signed Regarding Hitler: ”…Hoping that Hitler might let off steam…[Chamberlain] saved Hitler in the nick of time by crowning himself with the wreath of love of peace…”

Exceptional and lengthy Albert Einstein autograph letter signed in October 1938, ten days after English Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain signed the Munich Agreement, effectively ceding Czechoslovakia to Adolf Hitler. Albert Einstein autograph letter signed shows that his sharp mind extends beyond physics to also include the nuances and repercussions of international diplomacy; while most people praised Chamberlain (including President Roosevelt and the Royal family) for avoiding war by appeasing Hitler, Einstein accurately predicted that it would embolden Hitler and do further damage to European alliances.

Albert Einstein autograph letter signed datelined Princeton, 10 October 1938, where he writes to his close friend Michele Besso in German, beginning with his attempts to help European Jews by issuing affidavits: ”Dear Michele! / I am not able to give any more affidavits, and I would endanger the ones that are still pending if I issued additional new ones. The few persons I know who have some assets are already encumbered to their limit. The pressure on us from these poor people over there is such that, in view of the amount of misery and the scant opportunity of being able to help, one feels absolute despair. It is bloody difficult here for business people to establish themselves. It is significantly better for trades-people – this would apply in the case of your protege’s wife. However, it will be very difficult, if these people do not have any relatives over here. You see, affidavits from relatives receive priority consideration, and increasingly this means exclusion of all others. / You have confidence in the British and even Chamberlain? O sancta simpl…! [‘Oh holy innocence’, i.e., naivete in Latin] Hoping that Hitler might let off steam by attacking Russia, he sacrifices Eastern Europe. But we will come to see once more that shrewdness does not win in the long term. In France, he pushed the Left into a corner and, in France as well, helped give power to those people whose motto is, ‘Better Hitler than the Reds.’ The extermination policy against Spain already showed this clearly. Now he saved Hitler in the nick of time by crowning himself with the wreath of love of peace and inducing France to betray the Czechs. He did all this in such a clever way that he deceived most people, even you (unfortunately). His only fear, which spurred him on to his humiliating flights, was the worry that Hitler might lose ground. / I do not have any hope left for the future of Europe. America valiantly joined in with the effort to strangle Spain. For here too, to all intents and purposes, money and the fear of Bolshevists prevail – or, just in general, the fear of the owning class for their privileges. I wouldn’t want to be alive if I didn’t have my work. At any rate, it is good to be old now and, as a person at least, not to have to count on a distant future. / I am sending you our most recent work; I have great hopes for its further elaboration. I am still thoroughly convinced that, looked at from a deeper perspective, explaining the laws of nature in terms of probability constitutes a wrong direction, in spite of all practical successes of the statistical method. / From this work, you will not yet be able to clearly see the physical implications. Nevertheless, I am sure that you will like its purely logical aspect, irrespective, at this point, of whether anything can be done with it from the actual physical point of view. / I am glad for you that you are going to retire. You have pulled this tedious cart, which never arrives anywhere, long enough, and now, during your last years, you will be able to devote yourself purely to thought. Plato, as you know, desired this for all members of his privileged class who had reached the age of 50. / Mileva [Einstein’s ex-wife] has great difficulties making her mortgage payments. I suppose I will have to assume ownership of the house, in which she lives, in my own name, even though this constitutes a considerable risk. / Affectionate greetings to you and Anna from your / Albert Einstein autograph”.

Letter Written by Albert Einstein the Day He Renounced His German Citizenship & Turned in His German Passport — ”…We will now look for a hiding place…”

Historically important autograph letter written by Albert Einstein the day he renounced his German citizenship and turned in his passport to the German Consulate in Brussels. Dated 28 March [1933] aboard the S.S. Belgenland ship, Einstein and his wife Elsa write to Einstein’s sister Maja Winteler-Einstein about the dire situation in Germany, just minutes before they would dock in Antwerp, Belgium, where Einstein famously renounced his German citizenship.

After the Nazis seized power in January 1933, they raided Einstein’s home when he and Elsa were traveling to the United States. They even published his photo with the caption ”not yet hanged” and purportedly put a 5,000 bounty on his head. The day this letter was written, the Einsteins were traveling back to Germany, intending to live at their summer home in Caputh, Germany, before discovering that this home had also been raided. It was with this knowledge that Einstein decided to turn in his passport when they docked at Antwerp, and came to the heavy realization that they must now find a safe hiding place to live.

Elsa begins the letter, understandably agitated, with extreme worry for Einstein’s children, who she feels are in danger because of Einstein’s public denunciation of Nazism. Letter reads in full, ”Dear Maya [sic]! What were we thinking, believing that Tetel [Einstein’s son] were staying with you! We just found out that this is not possible. This was not clear in your letter. We had a report from [their friend Heinrich] Zangger. I find his description of Tetel’s state of mind very depressing. These are sad prospects for the future! – We are experiencing such deeply sad things. Maya [sic] – I just received a letter from the children. Tears keep running down my face. The letter had been given to a messenger for delivery, since all letters are being opened over there. Maya [sic] – these children are suffering terribly because of the horribly crass interview Albert gave in New York. Against my will! I was imploring him, on my knees. In vain! / Maya [sic], life is difficult and horrible. No matter what, do not write anything related to politics to the children, nothing of Albert’s interview. Oh my God, all of our friends either have fled or they are in jail.

The newspapers are censored. You cannot find out anything. Maya [sic] – what a time we live in! For days now, I have been so miserable and sick that I am barely able to drag on. We will be landing in Antwerp in 10 minutes. I wish that we were already ensconced in some quiet corner. And I am so scared during the landing, too!!!!! / Oh God!”

Einstein concludes the letter, his tone contrasting that of Elsa’s and seemingly accepting of their fate: ”Dear Maja, thinking that Tetel was with you was my mistake. It probably happened because you wrote about him in so much detail. Or possibly an unconscious wish [of mine] was behind it. He is actually doing fairly well but he is depressed and, in a characteristic way, will lose the thread of a conversation. / All the best! We will now look for a hiding place for the summer.”

Entire letter in German runs four pages on card-style stationery measuring 5” x 8”. Einstein’s portion is found on pages three and four. Single fold, otherwise near fine condition. A remarkable letter, imparting the visceral feeling of the extreme danger the Einsteins were in, and their bravery as Germany descended into Nazism.  Sold for $30,250.

Albert Einstein Autograph Letter Signed Where He Defends His Theory of General Relativity Two Years After He Published It — ”…L-Civita wrote a critical paper on gen[eral] rel[ativity]. I think however that he is wrong…”

Albert Einstein autograph letter signed from April 1917, with interesting content on his Theory of General Relativity, which he had published only two years prior. Einstein writes to his close friend and scientific collaborator Michele Besso, whom Einstein called “the best sounding board in Europe”; Besso was, in fact, the only individual credited in Einstein’s paper on the Theory of Special Relativity. Writing in German on Sunday, 29 April 1917, Einstein addresses a few different topics, not only General Relativity, but also quantum physics and his close friend Friedrich Adler, who had, astonishingly, recently assassinated Austrian Minister-President Karl von Sturgkh. Einstein comes to his friend’s defense, describing his personality and wondering how he could help him. Einstein writes in small part, “…Yesterday I presented a little thing about the Sommerfeld-Epstein formulation of quantum theory before the thinned ranks of our Physical Society. I want to write it up in the next few days. L[evi-]Civita wrote a critical paper on gen[eral] rel[ativity]. I think however that he is wrong…” Earlier in the letter Einstein discusses Adler, whose trial for the assassination of von Sturgkh was within days of Einstein’s letter. Einstein expresses his willingness to help Adler and examines his personality: “…A. proved himself a selfless, calm, hard-working, goodhearted, conscientious man who was highly esteemed by everybody, and that it is my heartfelt desire, therefore, to intercede for him…A. is a rather sterile rabbinical mind, obstinate, without a sense of the real. Ultra- selfless with a strong tinge of self-torture, even suicide. A real martyr-type…I just received a manuscript on relativity from him, completed within the past few days, in which, with the conviction of the prophet, he broadly expounds quite worthless subtleties, so that I am painfully caught in the dilemma of how to respond to it. I have been racking my brain about this. He keeps drawing on [Ernst] Mach’s theories to the point of exhaustion…you are much wiser about human affairs than I am…Albert”.

Albert Einstein Autograph Letter Signed, Shortly After WWII — ”…The Germans have not succeeded in concealing their attachment to Nazi-dom…Mankind in the mass is a fatal beast…”

Albert Einstein autograph letter signed, with extraordinary content regarding the German’s continued ”attachment to Nazi-dom”, the destructive nature of humanity, and American culture post WWII, including its ”imperialism and military psychology” as well its ”intellectual theft”. Signed ”A. Einstein”, the scientist writes to his friend, German psychiatrist Otto Juliusburger, a Jewish man who emigrated to the United States during World War II.

Dated 22 January 1947, Einstein writes in German on his blind-embossed Princeton stationery, translated in full: ”Dear Friend, I thank you today for your kind wishes and send you mine, somewhat shamefully late, but still, you can say, at the start of the year. At one point I had a correspondence with [philosopher and scientist Josef] Popper-Lynkeus that in a way I feel ashamed of. In it, I criticized his concept of a ‘duty to provide subsistence’ as being impractical, and I am afraid that criticism was not good. I did agree with him that protecting the individual from material want was an undeniable and important duty of society, but believed that interference of such magnitude into the freedom of the individual was not desirable and not warranted for the attainment of the goal. In doing so, I totally failed to recognize the high instructive value of such a development, which would, after all, be the exact opposite of society’s requiring military duty, even concerning the instructive impact. You propose classes in social-ethics instruction. No doubt, that would be good, but talk remains talk and tends to ossify. Action has greater impact.

I can well imagine how excited you are that your research results in pernicious anemia and somatic treatment of psychological illnesses have been accepted. You did not mention the people here. Small surprise there since intellectual theft is one of the hallowed traditions of this blessed country, which is well-known to the initiated. It adorns the thief while also helping overcome the inferiority complex that still operates under the surface.

The Germans have not succeeded in concealing their attachment to Nazi-dom. I hope that will cause others to destroy the German danger more radically than after the last war – so that jealousy of the victors will not result again in rivalry for the German confederation. Mankind in the mass is a fatal beast about which you can never tell when and where it will destructively pounce. Victory has not been good for those here, as imperialism and military psychology have taken hold. And yet one cannot be grateful enough for that victory.

Enjoy your days compiling your works. To you and your dear wife I wish happy and harmonious days. Warmly, A. Einstein”. An additional postscript written vertically in the left margin reads, ”Have you heard that our dear [Gustav Peter] Bucky narrowly escaped death thanks to surgery performed at the last minute? Apparently it was a case of medically adventurous proportions (obstruction of stomach and intestines caused by an interior hernia). [Rudolph] Nissen’s surgery must have been the accomplishment of a genius.” Single page measures 8.5” x 11”. Folds, otherwise near fine condition.

Fantastic Albert Einstein autograph on a typed letter signed ”A. Einstein” upon his personal stationery, dated 10 June 1939 from Princeton, New Jersey. While WWII raged in Europe, Einstein writes to a Dr. Epstein, thanking him for the work done on behalf of Jewish refugees.

Reads in full: ”My dear doctor Epstein: May I offer my sincere congratulations to you on the splendid work you have undertaken on behalf of the refugees during Dedication Week. The power of resistance which has enabled the Jewish people to survive for thousands of years has been based to a large extent on traditions of mutual helpfulness. In these years of affliction our readiness to help one another is being put to an especially severe test. May we stand this test as well as did our fathers before us. We have no other means of self-defense than our solidarity and our knowledge that the cause for which we are suffering is a momentous and sacred cause. It must be a source of deep gratification to you to be making so important a contribution toward rescuing our persecuted fellow-Jews from their calamitous peril and leading them toward a better future.”

Albert Einstein Autograph Letter Signed During The Year That The General Theory Of Relativity Is Published Re: The Beginnings Of His Serious Illness That Almost Killed Him & Mention Of Quantum Theory

Albert Einstein autograph letter signed, with previously unpublished content regarding Einstein’s relationship with his first wife Mileva and their two children. Although this letter has been published in ”Albert Einstein Correspondence With Michele Besso”, large parts were omitted regarding Einstein’s decision not to see his children, on account of his poor relationship with Mileva, who Einstein believes is manipulating the situation so that he feels compelled to reunite with his estranged family.

From Berlin on 14 July 1916, at which time Einstein and Mileva had been separated for two years (Einstein was with his second wife Elsa at this time), he writes to his friend Michele Besso who lived in Zurich, where Mileva and the sons lived. The letter contains several starts and stops, indicating the subject matter was likely distressing for Einstein.

Haunting Albert Einstein Autograph Letter Signed About Nazi Germany — Written During the Most Historically Famous Month of the Scientist’s Life

In February of ’33, while on a visit to the U.S., Einstein began to announce his plans to not return to Germany due to Hitler’s rise to power.

Yet this letter, dated 16 March 1933, speaks to Einstein’s optimism that he might still be able to return to his homeland, as he expresses his last hope that Nazism will die out, not proliferate as it sadly did.

Albert Einstein Autograph albert einstein autograph

Albert Einstein Autograph Letter Signed

The letter, written in German, encapsulates his last hopes before the most profound turning point in his life.

He writes to the German nurses of America, “…You needn’t think that I am personally, or in any way, bitter about what is happening in Germany. Like an individual, a people can lose its nerves; and in the case of the German people it really is comprehensible, considering the grave fates it had to endure. After some time this will be all over. One will rub one’s eyes and say it all was just an ugly dream…” Sold for $11,858.

Sadly, the dream became a reality as the Holocaust claimed the lives of 6 million Jews between this year and 1945.

With one mere sentence of the letter, we see this last glimmer of hope — a hope against the Nazi regime from taking hold — a hope that just two weeks later diminishes as he finds out he and his extended family have been personally attacked, his cottage raided by the Nazis on March 28th, his sailboat confiscated.

Just two weeks after penning these profound words on Waldorf Astoria stationery, Einstein gives up hope and renounced his citizenship for good, stating, “I do not want to remain in a state where individuals are not conceded equal rights before the law for freedom of speech and doctrine.”

In his Nobel Prize speech from 1923, Einstein expounded on his belief of a singular theory that the universe must be operating under, a so-called ”Theory of Everything” that has inspired Stephen Hawking and other prominent physicists: ”The intellect seeking after an integrated theory cannot rest content with the assumption that there exist two distinct fields totally independent of each other by their nature.” Einstein in fact, became somewhat preoccupied with the impulse to solve the unification puzzle, as evidenced in this letter, written to his closest friend Michele Besso, where he emerges from his solitude and ”brooding” after finally completing what he calls his ”Unified Field Theory”.

Albert Einstein Autograph Letter Signed On God & Unified Field Theory, With Mathematical Equations In His Hand Regarding The Theory — ”…It Is Devilishly Difficult To Get Closer To ‘Him’…”

Albert Einstein autograph letter signed in April 1950, shortly after his article ”On the Generalized Theory of Gravitation” appeared in ”Scientific American”. Einstein replies to a letter from his closest friend, Michele Besso, with wide-ranging content spanning the spiritual (even referencing God as ”Him”) to his Unified Field Theory, with equations from the theory in his hand (”A certain mathematical question has occupied me lately”) that he believes neutralizes his critics. Einstein also takes aim at quantum physicists (”there is no such thing as a ‘particle’ in the strictest meaning of the word”) and even tackles the tricky issue of knowledge itself (”no guarantee that it will ever be possible to know whether the theory is ‘true.”’).

Albert Einstein Autograph Letter Signed From 1918, Predicting His Nobel Prize Years Before Winning It

Fantastic autograph letter signed by Albert Einstein where Einstein predicts his ”hypothetical Nobel Prize” in 1918, four years before he won it for his Special Theory of Relativity, published in 1915. In this lengthy letter spanning three pages, Einstein also critiques and compliments fellow physicist Hermann Weyl, and analyzes the divorce settlement with his first wife (including proceeds from the future Nobel). Undated, but sent in June 1918 according to the published letters of Michele Besso, to whom this letter is written; Besso was one of Einstein’s closest friend and the only person credited on the original paper for the Theory of Special Relativity.

In these types of cases, the external occasions and influences play only a small part compared to the secretory causes about which nobody can do anything. / The reason why I am not able to take care of Tetel as much as I would wish lies with the calamitous external forces that surround him. Now Albert [Einstein’s other son Hans Albert] married a woman who, I am convinced, is just as insincere and cunning as Mileva – and equally afflicted by heredity. I requested a statement from them that either they accept my last will or that the Nobel Prize pledged to Mileva should be counted towards the children’s inheritance. However, they shirked from dealing with this matter, and I realized that after my death they want to seize all of the inheritance. I cannot allow this, though, because it would really be unfair. Such matters reveal what one should think of a person, and one must not close one’s eyes, even though it may be a bitter revelation. I believe that Tetel is a person with more decent attitudes and views. However, he is ill and subjected to bad influence. I will still try to do as much for my unfortunate son as I am able.” Sadly, Einstein would never see his son Eduard again, as Hitler assumed power after Einstein left for California and Einstein never returned to Europe again.
