Wittgenstein, in a letter to von Ficker, has this to say about his Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus:

“The book’s point is an ethical one. I once meant to include in the preface a sentence which is not in fact there now but which I will write out for you here. … What I meant to write, then, was this: My work consists of two parts, the one presented here plus all that I have not written. And it is precisely this second part that is the important one. My book draws limits to the sphere of the ethical from the inside as it were, and I am convinced that this is the only rigorous way of drawing those limits.”

Co-published by Silent Press and Burning Books, this book consists of a reproduction of the manuscript of Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus with all the ‘text’ removed, leaving only Wittgenstein’s hand-written corrections. (Also available is a large-scale hand-bound, fine-press edition of the book in an edition of ten for $1,500.)
