First edition of Russell’s first book, in the second issue blue cloth without publisher’s ads, one of fewer than 1,000 copies. Russell spent his honeymoon with his first wife in Berlin, and though he was sympathetic to the reformist aims of the German Social Democratic Party, then the most influential Marxist movement in Europe, he made in this volume some trenchant and far-sighted criticisms of Marxist dogmas. With a gift inscription from the literary critic John Dover Wilson to his brother Michael.

Octavo. Original blue cloth, spine and front board lettered in gilt. Bookseller’s ticket to front free endpaper. Spine rolled and slightly faded, cloth slightly rubbed at extremities, toned endpapers, contents mildly foxed. A very good copy.
