G.H. Hardy’s copy of Principia Mathematica

Bernard Linsky (University of Alberta)

G.H. Hardy’s copy of Principia Mathematica is now in the possession of the Bertrand Russell Archives, but it arrived during the closure of the library so we have not had access to it. Some photos of pages with Hardy’s annotations were taken, however, as the acquisition was being authenticated. I will show  those pictures and talk about their relation to Hardy’s review of PM in the Times Literary Supplement from September 7, 1911.
