Below you will see
the official (de facto) books that most Einstein collectors use for research.
Even though these books are not
that old, they are somewhat pricey.
Albert Einstein Bibliography,
Ernst Weil, Ph. D
This is the rarest and most sought after checklist used and referenced by
Einstein collectors. Even though it was published in 1960 (as was the
Nell Boni Bibliography below), it is hard to find.
right, you can see what the inside of this book looks like.
Quite simply, it lists all of Albert Einstein's major scientific
publications, and the sequential number that is used is the de-facto
"reference number" cited for most of Einstein's works. For
example, Einstein's 1929 paper on the Unified Field Theory (Zur
Einheitlichen Feldtheorie) is commonly cited as "Weil
Einstein Bibliographical Checklist,
Nell Boni, Monique Russ, and Dan H. Laurence
This scarce book is the second most frequently cited book referenced by
Einstein collectors. While referenced frequently along with the "Weil"
numbers, it is not treated as the standard bibliography as is Ernst Weil's
Oddly enough, Nell Boni's (et al) book is a bit more thorough in documenting
just about everything Einstein published (including significant newspaper
articles). Going beyond the standard set of scientific
publications, the Boni work includes the following sections:
- The content is similar to what you would find in Ernst Weil's book,
basically all scientific writings.
II. GENERAL WRITINGS
- Including significant newspaper articles written by Albert Einstein.
An example of this is the
1931 article published in the New York Herald Tribune
entitled "As Einstein Sees America" (BONI #324), a very interesting personal
view of the people of the United States.
While the "spine" of this book simply says "Einstein Bibliographical
Checklist", the title page inside shows the actual full title to be:
