MOORE, G[eorge] E[dward] (1873-1958). Philosopher.
Typewritten testimonial signed, with a few autograph words, 1 page 4to (some small tears professionally repaired), Cambridge, 13 May 1935. Recommending Miss Ambrose for 'any award which can be made to her to enable her to carry on her work'.
'... The subject upon thich she is engaged in research, viz. the question as to what there is of value in the view of the so-called "Finitish" school in the philosophy of mathematics, is a subject of great importance but also of very great difficulty. ...'
Letters and documents written or signed by Moore, one of the most important philosophers of the twentieth century, are quite rare on the market. He disliked his forenames, and throughout his academic life was known simply as Moore, although his wife called him Bill. The present document is signed 'G.E. Moore', the style by which he is now perhaps best remembered.
