Einstein, Albert (1879-1955). Einige argumente fur die annahme einer molekularen agitaation beim absoluten nullpunkt. In Annalen der Physik 40, pp.551-560. With: Otto Stern (1888-1969). Red cloth with gilt lettering on the spine. [Whole volume: 1056 pp. + 1 plate]. 210 x 130 mm. A very good copy.

"Some arguments for the assumption of molecular agitation at absolute zero." In this paper, Einstein and Stern show that the quantum theory of solids, to give the best agreement with experiments at normal temperatures, seems to demand that at absolute zero a residual energy would remain in the solids, which they term "zero-point energy." They thus introduced this important concept to physics." (p. 292. Calaprice, Kennefick & Shulmann. An Einstein Encyclopedia. 2015.)

Otto Stern was a German-American physicist and Nobel Laureate in Physics. He was the second most nominated person for a Nobel Prize with 82 nominations in the years 1925-1945, ultimately winning in 1943 "for his contribution to the development of the molecular rat method and his discovery of the magnetic moment of the proton". In 1912 Stern did his doctoral dissertation in concentrated solutions. After receiving his Ph.D. degree, Stern took advantage of his economic independence to join Albert Einstein at Prague. Stern was with Einstein from the spring of 1912 until 1914.
