ALBERT EINSTEIN

AUTOGRAPH APHORISM SIGNED AND DATED BY EINSTEIN: "ALBERT EINSTEIN 1936. MUNDUS VULT DECIPI."


Written on a small card (3 x 4 3/4 in.; 120 x 70 mm). Framed and glazed.


Einstein employed this Latin aphorism (which means, "the world want to be deceived") on several occasions, including in a presentation inscription to Hermann Struck in a copy of Über die spezielle und die allgemeine Relativitätstheorie Gemeinverständlich (Braunschweig, 1917).
