The Bergen Electronic Edition of Wittgensteins Nachlass contains the text-only "normalized transcription" of The Bergen Electronic Edition of Wittgensteins Nachlass. Item 203 of the Nachlass (Logisch-Philosophische Abhandlung (Sog. Wiener Ts. des "Tractatus") (=Vienna, Österreichische Nationalbibliothek, Cod. Ser. n. 22.023)) is not included for copyright reasons in this web-only version. However two other versions of the Logisch-Philosophische Abhandlung, items 202 (Logisch-Philosophische Abhandlung, (sog. "Engelmann Ts." des "Tractatus")) and 204 (Logisch-Philosophische Abhandlung (sog. "Gmunden Ts." des "Tractatus")) are included.
The collection includes all of Wittgenstein's unpublished manuscripts, typescripts, dictations, and most of his notebooks. The Nachlass was catalogued by G. H. von Wright in his The Wittgenstein Papers, first published in 1969, and later updated and included as a chapter with the same title in his book Wittgenstein, published by Blackwell (and by the University of Minnesota Press in the U.S.) in 1982.
