[ FIRST EDITION & FIRST PRINTING ]Carl Axel Fredrik Benedicks, born 27 May 1875 in Stockholm, and died in 1958. He was a Swedish metallograf and physicists of the family Benedicks. He was half-brother to Gustaf Benedicks.

metal structures and their importance in theoretical and practical
terms. He was also able to completely recreate natural meteoric iron. From 1916, he performed a series of studies in thermoelectricity. In 1919, he became a member of the Academy of Engineering Sciences, and in 1922, became a member of the Society of Sciences in Uppsala and in 1924 became a member of the Academy of Sciences. [the year this book was published].
States on Inner Front prelim [of the dustjacket]:
Einstein has described this work as "a comprehensive and excellent text-book, to be warmly recommended to mathematicians and physicists interested in The Theory of Relativity." The Theory of Tensors is developed from first principles, thus enabling the physicist of average attainments to grasp all the mathematical details of Einstein's Theory.
