Kurt Gödel: The Album

Photographs of Kurt Gödel, his family, friends, colleagues, houses and schools. Facsimiles of letters and telegrams to/from/about Gödel. Copies of his degree notices, lecture announcements, awards. Odd snippets like his lending library card, the bill from his wedding dinner, the sales receipt from his copy of Whitehead and Russell's Principia Mathematica. All helpfully captioned in both German and English. Unfortunately no index, but it's a pleasure to browse through the sections: Gödel's Life, Gödel's Work, Gödel's Vienna.
