The Wittgenstein Archive in Cambridge is dedicated to the study and publication of all aspects of Wittgenstein’s work. The Archive houses facsimiles of all his manuscripts (most of the originals are in the Wren Library of Trinity College, two manuscripts are in the Bodleian Library in Oxford, and the rest are in the Austrian National Library in Vienna).
The Archive also contains the largest extant collection of original biographical material, altogether some 10,000 items, mostly photographs and letters, which over the years have served as the basis for many books, exhibitions and films on Wittgenstein.
