EINSTEIN, Albert. Über die von der molekularkinetischen theorie der Wärme geforderte Bewegung von in ruhenden Flüssigkeiten suspendierten Teilchen. 

[Leipzig], s.n., [1905].

8vo (235x155 mm), pp. 549-560.  binding : Under wrappers, kept in cloth folder within morocco-backed slipcase. 

Extract (not an offprint) from "Annalen der Physik" (Leipzig), 4. Folge, Bd. 17 (1905) pp. 549-560..
Important early paper on the electrodynamics of moving bodies from Einstein’s miracle year 1905, proving that «according to the molecular theory of heat, bodies of dimensions of the order of 1/1000 mm. suspended in liquid experience apparent random movement due to the thermal motion of molecules. Such movement of suspended bodies has actually been observed by biologists who call it Brownian molecular movement.
