NotesFirst 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.
Parallel text in German and English.
A very good copy in the dust jacket, very minor chipping to extremities, a couple of light marks, very faint sunning to spine panel but much less than usual.
