Notes

First edition, first impression, based on a set of public lectures Russell had delivered in autumn 1917 which were intended to serve as a popular introduction to the system of Principia Mathematica. He wrote the book while serving a six-month prison sentence for an article he wrote alleging that American troops would be employed in Britain as strike-breakers. The print run was 1,430 copies, of which 67 were for review and 260 for the American market. The spine is sometimes found gilt-lettered, other times in black, as here: though Blackwell & Ruja do not note the variants, it is possible that post-war production difficulties led to the publishers ceasing to use gilt mid-way through production.
