Zu I: Erste Ausgabe. - "It is possible to demonstrate, as did Eddington... that the predictions of Whitehead's theory and those of Einstein's general theory of relativity are equivalent with respect to the four tests of relativity: the deflection of a light ray, the red shift, the advance in the perihelion of a satellite, and radar time delay. The equivalence of the two theories with respect to these tests rests in the remarkable fact that both theories, when solved for a static, spherically symmetrical gravitational field, produce the Schwarzschild solution of the field equations" (DSB 14, 306). - Zu II: Erste Ausgabe. - Kramers important paper on the law of dispersion. - Stempel auf Titel. Einband gering berieben, sonst sauber und gut erhalten
