PHOTOGRAPH SIGNED AND AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED ("A. EINSTEIN")

Photograph signed and inscribed ("Frau Löser zum 79. Geburtstag mit herzlichen Wünschen. A. Einstein"), mounted on card and framed and glazed, overall size 285 x 205mm., a head and shoulders view, no date [1928], a number of tiny flecks on the image

Autograph letter signed ("A. Einstein"), in German, to Theresa Löser

offering good-humoured congratulations on her eightieth birthday, noting that to achieve such an age in good health one requires a good conscience and a sweet-natured son-in-law, adding that the latter has the habit often of turning a blind eye, but that he hardly need do so in her case

...Allerdings weiss ich nicht, ob er Ihr Inneres so genau kennt als das meiner Lieben zuhause. Vor manchem pflegt er auch in seiner Güte die Augen zu schliessen, aber das hat er bei Ihnen gewiss nicht nötig...

1 page, large 4to, printed stationery headed 'Albert Einstein', Berlin, 25 January 1929, a number of tiny tears to margins, a few tiny marks, folded twice, splitting along folds
