The principles of mathematics

Cambridge: University Press, 1903. Large 8vo. xxix, [i], 534 pp., including half-title and index. FIRST EDITION. Publisher’s cloth. From the library of Harry Todd Costello (1885-1960), a graduate student who took Russell’s class at Harvard entitled “The principles of mathematics” and was chosen to conduct the class during a time when Russell was delayed because of travel problems. It is probable that this is the copy Russell and Costello used in discussing the class together; it bears Costello’s signature and is annotated throughout, as well as the bookplate of Trinity College Library, where Costello was the Brownell Professor of Philosophy. A bright, clean copy. Item #19282
