First edition, first impression, of this testimony to the thought processes of the brilliant Austrian philosopher, with parallel English and German texts. A number of Wittgenstein’s notebooks were destroyed on his orders in 1950, including most from the period of the Tractatus. However, three of the last survived by chance, and were issued thus as Vol. IV of Blackwell’s Collected Wittgenstein.

Octavo. Original blue cloth, spine lettered in gilt. With the dust jacket. Light spotting to endleaves and edges. A very good copy in the jacket with toned spine, light mark to front panel, some short closed tears to extremities and small tape repair to verso.
