1983 [an intended dedication:] Karl R. Popper. Realism and the Aim of Science, Vol. 3 from the Postscript to the Logic of Scientific Discovery. Ed. W.W. Bartley, III. Totowa, N.J.: Rowman and Littlefield. The Acknowledgements, which seem to be identical in all 3 volumes of the Postscript, are divided into 1959 and 1981 sections. The latter states: “Had the Postscript been published in the 1950s, I should have dedicated it to Bertrand Russell: Professor Bartley has told me that a letter to this effect exists in the Russell Archives at McMaster University.” (P. xviii) (Yes.) BR wrote Popper that he felt much honoured by his intended dedication: “TO BERTRAND RUSSELL | whose lucidity | sense of proportion and devotion to truth | have set us an unattainable standard | of philosophical writing.” Grattan-Guinness in his “Russell and Karl Popper” says by 1983 “Popper had forgotten the planned dedication” (Russell, n.s. 12 [1992]: 9). Bartley replaced Russell as dedicatee. K.B.
