Archival note

Wittgenstein’s dictionary was published under the title "Wörterbuch für Volks- und Bürgerschulen" in the latter half of 1926 by Hölder-Pichler-Tempsky Verlag, a Viennese publisher that specializes in educational materials. The title page indicates that it was published with the approval of the Austrian Ministry of Education for instructional use, though there is little evidence it was ever used widely in classrooms. The 42 pages of word entries are arranged in 3 columns per page and printed in Fraktur script. The entries consist mainly of common Austrian-German words and idioms, which are occasionally supplemented by synonyms and notes on their use.
