Description


Remarkable ALS in German, signed “Albert,” one page on a 3.5 x 5.5 postcard, postmarked March 17, 1918. An untranslated letter to his first wife, physicist and mathematician Mileva Einstein, written from Berlin. Addressed on the reverse in Einstein's hand to "Mileva Einstein," incorporating his full name, "Albert Einstein," into the return address. In fine condition.

Einstein married Mileva Maric on January 6, 1903. Einstein's marriage to Mileva, who was a mathematician, was both a personal and intellectual partnership: Einstein referred to Mileva as 'a creature who is my equal and who is as strong and independent as I am.' They separated in 1914, and were officially divorced on February 14, 1919. Mileva would stay in Zurich, as would their boys, and Einstein supported them with nearly half of his salary; he would later place the award money from his 1921 Nobel Prize in a trust for their benefit. A highly desirable piece of handwritten family correspondence from the great genius of the 20th century.
