About This Item

George Allen and Unwin Ltd. London. 1946. FIRST U. K EDITION. 8vo.(8.8 x 5.9 inches). 916pp. A lovely clean copy bound in the original publishers oatmeal cloth with brown and yellow stamped lettering panels to the spine. Two neat previous owner names to the front free endpaper otherwise a fine, crisp and clean copy throughout. In the original dustwrapper, which was printed on re-used war-time paper with a colour map printed on verso, with some minor chipping to the top and bottom of the spine and a closed tear, without any loss, to the front panel but overall very good, bright, clean and fresh. ------- A very nice copy of Russell's hugely popular history, broadly covering covering philosophers and philosophical thought from the Pre-Socratics up to John Dewey and William James, and finishing with Logical Analysis. Russell won the Nobel prize for Literature in 1950, with the Nobel committee listing this title among the works that influenced their decision. While criticised by some as being too general, many found the book an accessible and easily readable introduction to Philosophy and it became a best seller which has not been out of print since.
