Portraits from Memory
with 6 autobiographical essays by Bertrand Russell
First US edition, first printing hardback in dustwrapper. 21 × 14cm, vi + 246pp .
A record of beliefs retained and discarded, hopes realised, and the intellectual and philosophical development of the author, including portraits of contemporaries with whom he was intimate (G Bernard Shaw, H G Wells, Sidney & Beatrice Webb etc).
This copy is in very good condition, the dustwrapper some small areas of loss to the edges and a little creasing but is now within a protective sleeve and has not been price-clipped. Neat previous owner's name to ffep.
