Philosophical Investigations, Ludwig Wittenstein
First edition in English, first printing of one of the most important philosophical works of the twentieth century. Translated by G.E.M. Anscombe with parallel text in German and English.
Oxford: Basil Blackwell, 1953. Original blue cloth with spine lettered in gilt, includes the errata slip loosely inserted after the title page. A near fine copy in a very good, price-clipped dust jacket. Binding is tight, sturdy and square. Light wear to boards with spine tips softened, a trace of foxing to edges of text block with a minor bump to corner. Internally clean with no markings. The dust jacket shows some edge wear with a bit of loss at the spine crown, foxing to panels and spine, protected in archival mylar. A presentable copy.
