Third edition in German. 8vo. x, 374 pp. Original purple cloth, spine lettered in white, dust jacket. A fine copy. Hoffmann und Campe.

A presentation copy, inscribed by the author "Für Roswitha Liudocco von K.R. Popper" in black ink to the front free endpaper. With a loose letter from Popper's research assistant at LSE, Ivan Slade, addressed to 'Rosie' and obviously sent to the recipient along with this copy of the book: "I much prefer the last paragraph of this book to the whole of the so-called Art of Loving [by Erich Fromm]". Slade adds as a postscript: "Popper doesn't sign books except for personal friends: this is the first book I have ever asked him to dedicate look after it (for your granchildren [sic])".

Originally published in English in 1974 as Unended Quest. An Intellectual Autobiography, this is a revealing account of Popper's life and a gateway to an understanding of his life's work.
