OGDEN, C. K., I. A. Richards, & James Wood.
The Foundations of Aesthetics.
First edition, first impression. “Ogden [1889-1957] converted the Cambridge Magazine into a quarterly in which he and [I. A.] Richards published a series of articles as a first draft of the book which appeared in 1923 as The Meaning of Meaning. This empirical approach to theoretical confusion about language, setting forth principles for the understanding of the function of language, rapidly became one of the important books of the decade. Chapter 7, a study of the linguistic factor in aesthetics, appeared separately in expanded form under the title The Foundations of Aesthetics in 1922 as the joint work of Ogden, I. A. Richards, and the artist James Wood” (ODNB).
