    26 pages of the manuscript were written by Einstein, another 24 belong to the hand of Besso, and three pages were written together.

    Also, scientists often took notes in the margins, commenting on each other’s work. Einstein even commented on his own reasoning.

    Einstein’s works are often sold at auctions for millions of dollars. In May 2021, Einstein’s letter to a rival physicist containing his famous equation E = mc2 was auctioned for $ 1.2 million.

    In 2017, two short notes Einstein wrote to a bellhop in a Tokyo hotel, including one describing his “formula” for happiness, were sold for $ 1.5 million.
