    Albert Einstein Printed Photograph Signed Twice. Unusual two-sided printed image of the great physicist Albert Einstein, in candid poses. Clipped from the book Einstein His Life and Times by Philipp Frank (translated from a German manuscript by George Rosen), copyright 1947 by Alfred A. Knopf, Inc., n.p., 1948.

    Side 1: Depicts "Einstein in his study at the Institute of Advanced Study, Princeton, 1940." Einstein stands before a chalkboard, wearing scruffy jeans and an ill-fitting sweatshirt. Image is signed "A. Einstein '48" on the image itself. Side 2: In this image, we see "Einstein in the study of his home 112 Mercer Street, Princeton, 1938." Wearing a denim jacket, Mr. Einstein ponders a table filled with stacks of papers. Signed "A. Einstein '48" at lower white border.

    Although Albert Einstein's autograph is not uncommon, the demand vastly outweighs the supply, making this science's best contemporary autograph. As such, this dual image with signatures on each side is extremely desirable. Heavy crease down center. Tape stains at extreme edges do not affect signatures. Near fine.
