Grazer Philosophische Studien 33 (1):35-47 (1989)

Abstract
There has recently come to light a list of manuscripts and typescripts with instructions for their disposal, which suggests a number of hypotheses concerning the composition of Wittgenstein's only printed work, the Tractatus. In this article an attempt is made at identifying these documents with the help of biographical facts of the period 1914-1918. As a result it becomes highly improbable that many of the notebooks from which the Tractatus was composed have been lost. Rather it is suggested that the various stages of the "Prototractatus" can finally be traced on the basis of the now available evidence
