Ludwig Wittgenstein - Philosophical Investigations

Oxford: Basil Blackwell, 1958. Second edition (first edition published in 1953). Translated by G. E. M. Anscombe. Hardcover. 8vo. Pp. 458, xiv. Blue cloth binding. Very good condition. Former owner has written her name, made note of reviews of the work in question in the trade journals (Philosophical Quarterly and Philosophical Review) on front free endpaper. No other markings. Very clean covers and pages. The book's dust jacket is exquisite; the most captious collector will strain to find fault here.

This edition reproduces Wittgenstein's original German text on pages verso with the corresponding English translation thereof to the right (page numbers for each language are sequenced separately thus the indicated pagination is only 239).
