RUSSELL, Bertrand. Human Knowledge. London: George Allen and Unwin Ltd., 1948.
8vo., publisher's green cloth lettered in gilt to spine; unclipped dust wrapper printed on the back of a WWII map showing the coast of Sumatra; upper edge green; pp. 538, [ii]; spine a little faded and slightly pushed to head and foot, with some offsetting to endpapers and spotting to edges; previous ownership inscription to ffep; some nicks to wrapper, the spine also very slightly darkened; still a very good copy overall.
This book was written by Russell to introduce and explain ideas of epistemology to the general reader. The map on the verso of the wrapper is characteristic of books printed at the time; paper was in short supply and so was often recycled into dust jackets.
