THE SOLVAY CONFERENCE 1911: EINSTEIN'S FIRST PUBLIC APPEARANCE as a Central Figure in the International Physics Community

Printed in "La Theorie du Rayonnement et les Quanta; Rapports et Discussions de la Reunion Tenue a Bruxelles du 30 Octobre au 3 Novembre 1911, Sous les Auspices de M. E. Solvay" edited by Paul Langevin and Maurice de Broglie, Einstein examined how to infer the proper general formula for specific heat (heat capacity). He was second youngest in attendance.

We are very pleased to offer this first edition copy of the papers presented at this prestigious conference - considered a turning point in the world of physics. It brought together leading physicists of the time to discuss ‘Radiation and the Quanta’. Included are papers and extensive commentary by luminaries such as Lorentz, Nernst, Planck, Curie, Poincaré, and Einstein.

4to, (25 x 16.5 cm), [v] + pp.461. Bound in green cloth, with gilt lettering to spine. Boards are very good, with only slight shelf wear to spine. Original green paper wrappers have been bound in, however these have been laminated by a past owner. Publisher’s advertisements to rear board. Pencil notes on attendees to front paste-down, and pencil “30/” price on front wrapper. No ownership inscriptions or bookplates. Pages very clean and bright internally, no foxing, tears, or pencil notes to text.
