First edition. The letter inserted in this copy, dated February 26th 1947, is one leaf, penned and signed by Carnap, and addressed to R.P. Brady, a graduate student whose idea of a new introduction to Principia Mathematica Carnap finds ‘very interesting’. In response to Brady’s request, Carnap offers a reading list on mathematical logic with brief comments, adding Cramer’s Mathematical methods in statistics as a final suggestion in the field of probability and statistics.
