was translated to English in a book
as I See it" (1st English Ed, 1934, New York:
Covichi-Friede, and later: 1949, New York: Philosophical Library),
Unfortunately, the 1949 edition (Philosophical
Library) was an
abridged translation which omitted the scientific publications by Einstein.
Thus, they also omitted the famous "Origins" lecture discussed here.
In the final paragraph of the
Introduction to the
1949 Abridged Edition, the
author states: "The
World As I See It
[Boni 357.A] in its original form, includes essays
by Einstein on relativity and cognate subjects. For reasons indicated
above, these have been omitted in the present edition; the object of this
reprint is simply to reveal to the general reader the human side of one of
the most dominating figures of our day".
