1972 Alfa Romeo Montreal Is A Rare Sight
Rarely seen in the United States, this rare classic Alfa Romeo Montreal can be yours. Marcello Gandini with the Carrozzeria Bertone introduced the Alfa Romeo Montreal to the public in 1967 at the Expo 67 World’s Fair in Montreal, Canada. The public gave the model a great reception and so the automaker made it a production model. Once it did go into production, only 3,925 were made, and of those, only 100 made it to North America. Examples like this model are extremely rare to find in the U.S.
The document is an autograph manuscript of 54 pages written in 1913 and 1914, in Zürich (Switzerland), by the famous physicist of German origin and his collaborator and confidant, Michele Besso.
few autographs of Einstein
according to Christie's, it is thanks to this Swiss engineer that the manuscript is, almost miraculously, reached us: Einstein would probably not have taken the trouble to keep what could appear to him as a working document.
After his theory of restricted relativity, which made him demonstrate in 1905 the famous formula E = MC², Einstein began to work at a theory of general relativity.
This theory of gravitation, finally published in November 1915, revolutionized our understanding of the universe. Death in 1955 at the age of 76, Einstein became the symbol of scientific genius as much as a pop figure, with the famous picture of 1951 where he pulls the tongue.

In early 1913, he and Besso tackle one of the problems that the scientific community had faced for decades: the abnormality of the orbit of the planet Mercure, "says Christie's. The two scientists will solve this enigma.
It is not in the calculations lying on this manuscript, which have a number of unnoticed errors. When Einstein spotted them, he was not worried about this manuscript, carried away by Besso.
Einstein's scientific autograph documents from this period, and more generally before 1919, are extremely rare, "says Christie's.
being one of two manuscripts documenting the genesis of the general relativity theory that came to us, it is an extraordinary testimony of Einstein's work and allows us a fascinating dive in the spirit of the greatest scientist From the twentieth century, continues the auction house.
The other document known of this crucial period in the research of the physicist, says Zürich's notebook (end of 1912, early 1913) is indeed at the Einstein archives of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
