Notes

First edition, first impression, of Ayer's autobiography. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "To Caroline Anne Tuell, with my best wishes from Freddie Ayer. Bournemouth, October 13 1977". Anthony Smith's review for The Observer of A. J. Ayer: A Life in Philosophy by Ben Rogers is laid in to the front (20 June 1999). In it he writes that "Ayer left relatively few letters and although he wrote two small volumes about himself left few materials to assist the task of biography".
