Autograph letter signed to the Governor of Brixton Prison sending a copy of his "Introduction to Mathematical Philosophy" [George Allen & Unwin, 1st edition, 1919]
Following his conviction for lecturing against the entry of the United States into WWI he was sentenced to 6-months imprisonment which he served at Brixton Prison; whilst incarcerated there he wrote the above book. Loosely inserted in the volume is an A.L.S., 1-page 8vo with conjugate blank, written from Lady Ottoline Morrell's residence, The Manor House, Garsington, Oxford & dated 20th March 1919. He writes "Sir, I am venturing to send you the book I wrote while under your charge - I know its contents cannot interest you, but I imagine not very many books are written in Brixton Prison, & I thought you might wish your collection not to be incomplete. Yours very truly, Bertrand Russell". The cloth of the binding faded, the letter fine.
