Important First Book

Syntactic Structures [Second Issue]

Notes: Chomsky's first book, a groundbreaking work in linguistics, a work that profoundly altered current thinking on a wide variety of subjects related to language and meaning.

116 pages. Janua Linguarum series, book IV.

Edition + Condition: First edition (first printing, second issue, with a list of books in the Janua Linguarum series). Small stain on front cover, else very good in wrappers (paperback), as issued.

The fact that there are two issues of this book is not widely known. The first printing has 1957 on the title page and the copyright page, and no indication of later printings (the second printing is dated 1962). On the first issue, the inside back cover is blank. On this second issue, there is a list of 14 titles in the Janua Linguarum series, dating to 1961, suggesting that this cover may have been put on copies in 1961 or perhaps this is the cover used for the 1962 second printing and was put on unbound or unsold copies of the first printing that were still on hand.

Publication: 's-Gravenhage: Mouton, 1957.
