Introduction to Mathematical Philosophy.London: George Allen & Unwin, Ltd, 1919 Stock Code: 140790
NotesFirst 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.
Octavo. Original red cloth, spine lettered in gilt.
Spine lightly sunned with slight lean, light spotting to edges and to initial and final leaves; still an excellent copy.
