63, 63e [i. e., 126] p.; 21.5 cm. Printed in German & English on facing pages. "This book comprises material on colour which was written by Wittgenstein in the last eighteen months of his life... It is one of the few documents which shows him concentratedly at work on a single philosophical issue. The principal theme is the features of different colours, of different kinds of colours... and of luminosity-- a theme which Wittgenstein treats in such a way as to destroy the traditional idea that colour is a simple and logically uniform kind of thing." From the library of Prof. Vincent Tomas of the Brown University Department of Philosophy. With a two page discussion of color with painter Walter [Feldman]. Stock# 44,426. Vg / soft cover.
