Letter to the publisher W. Keiper in Berlin. In part (translated): “I have your friendly letter asking if I was satisfied with the proposed dedication in your edition of Planck's recollections. It is hard for me to answer the question posed, because it seems to me that a dedication to certain organizations or persons hardly projects the paramount importance of Planck's life work to the science of our time. Anyway, I might like to know, on the one hand, if you have already received from the Nobel Foundation and other named persons the approval of the dedication and it would therefore be associated with difficulties…On the other hand, after the eight names among the many [Nobel] award-winners for Physics selected, you omit entirely others such as Compton, Dirac, Fermi, Franck, Pauli, Rabi, Stern, from whom so many significant contributions to the Planck quantum theory have come.” Intersecting folds, a few significant stains affecting the overall appearance, and punch holes to the left edge, otherwise fine condition. Fabulous content associating several of the most influential figures in the development of quantum theory.
