Despite Russell's still important mathematical works and indeed his essays in logical positivism, not to mention his much vaunted campaigning for peace, the History of Western Philosophy remains his best-regarded and lasting testament.

A classic survey of intellectual thought, charting over 2000-years of history from the pre-Socratic philosopher Thales (fl.585 BC) to the American educationalist John Dewey (AD 1859-1952), who was in his 87th year at the time of publication.

First UK edition, first impression; 8vo (22.5 x 15 cm); publisher's grey cloth, titles to spine in yellow on a burgundy ground, with the unclipped dustjacket printed on military map as issued, cloth and fore-edge a little spotted, jacket slightly chipped and frayed at spine ends, minor offsetting to endpapers, otherwise internally clean, a very good copy; 916pp.
