    First edition in English, first impression, of the author's major work on the philosophy of mathematics. Originally published under the title Bemerkungen über die Grundlagen der Mathematik in the same year.

  2. The Blue and Brown Books.

    The Blue and Brown Books.

    Preliminary studies for the “Philosophical investigations”.
    First edition, first impression. Wittgenstein dictated the "Blue Book" (though he did not call it that) to his class in Cambridge during the session 1933-34, and had stencilled copies made - these came to be known as the "Blue Book", taken from the colour of the wrappers; the "Brown Book" was dictated to two pupils between 1934 and 1935, and three typed copies bound in brown wrappers were produced.
