The other day, we announced that a manuscript, in which the majority of the handwriting of German theoretical physicist Albert Einstein, was going to be auctioned. This 54-page manuscript included Einstein’s handwriting and nodollarsars on 29 pages in total . The remaining pages contained the writings of Einstein’s friend Michelle Besso .

These pages, which show the work of the duo trying to solve a mystery about Mercury’s orbit in the most concrete way, also include ideas and equations that will be the basis of the theory of relativity . The pages, which were put up for auction on the saadollar series last night, were expected to be sold at a record price due to their importance and sound preservation. The expected came true, even the record price, which was an expectation, was too weak compared to the selling price.

Estimated up to $3.5 million, sold for €13 million:

at Christie’s Auction House in Paris These pages, filled in by Albert Einstein and Michelle Besso in the auction held in June 1913 – early 1914, were sold for 13 million 383 thousand euros (approximately 194 million Dollars) . The name of the person who bought 54 pages, which was sold for 13 million euros, with a ceiling estimate of 3.5 million euros before the auction, was not disclosed. The document became both one of the most valuable remnants of Einstein and the most scientific manuscript.

Vincent Belloy, one of the experts at the auction house, stated that it is extraordinary that this document, which has been well preserved until today, has survived to this day. Belloy stated that Einstein was a person who did not keep his notes, and that these manuscripts were preserved by his colleague Besso .

Einstein’s last manuscript to go on sale was a manuscript that he sent to a rival physicist, which contained the famous equation E=mc2. This manuscript, which went up for auction in May 2021, was sold for $1.2 million . Two notes Einstein wrote to the bellboy at a hotel in Tokyo sold for a total of $1.5 million in 2017.
