This Gallery provides you with the unique opportunity to explore some of the highlights from the Digitized Manuscripts housed at the Albert Einstein Archives accessible on this website. Take a tour of some of the major aspects of Albert Einstein's life and work as presented through a selection from his personal papers.

This Gallery includes a representative sample of manuscripts from the Einstein Archives: scientific manuscripts relating to Einstein's special and general theories of relativity; an example of one of his lecture notebooks; non-scientific manuscripts relating to his interest in Jewish affairs and to his world-wide fame; and a sample from his personal material - one of his travel diaries.

Some of the manuscripts are accompanied by their corresponding published and annotated version from the Collected Papers of Albert Einstein (CPAE) produced by the Einstein Papers Project and published by Princeton University Press. A few items will also display their English translation as published in the CPAE. .
