Wittgenstein Source Facsimile Edition of Moore’s Notes of Wittgenstein’s Lectures (MWN) gives access to the manuscripts containing G.E. Moore's notes of Wittgenstein’s lectures at Cambridge University 1930-33. The manuscripts are:

(i) the six notebooks that Moore used to take notes at Wittgenstein's Cambridge lectures from January 1930 to May 1933 (10.7.4-9)

(ii) the loose-leaf summary notes, based on those notebooks, which Moore composed in the early 1950s (10.7.10)

(iii) the manuscript of a short paper on Wittgenstein on grammar which Moore read in Wittgenstein's class in February 1932 (15.10)

An edition of these manuscripts appears in: Wittgenstein: Lectures, Cambridge 1930-1933, From the Notes of G. E Moore, edited by David Stern, Brian Rogers, and Gabriel Citron. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press (2016). The MS pagination used in MWN is provided in the margins of the book edition.
