This book according to the dustjacket description
"...is an attempt - the most brilliant in our time- to describe the universe as it now appears in the light of modern scientific and cosmological theory."

There is a previous owners bookplate as well as his signature on the back which is quite fascinating " R. Schellenberger Princeton University 17 July 1948" He was obviously a big fan of Einstein and many of the pages have sentences underlined. A well read and cherished edition. There is also some faint text above the signature.
A wonderful addition to any Einstein Library.
