After several editions of Wittgenstein's REMARKS ON FRAZER'S GOLDEN BOUGH (in the following abbreviated as GB) the public still hasn't been provided with an edition which can truly be said to form a reliable basis for accurate research and translation. Not only do they contain errors, some of the editions are also - without notifying the reader - abridged. This note is to correct main mistakes and to comment on some of the most striking deficiencies, in order to prevent the continuation of infelicities. The note is divided into four parts, starting with a general introduction. The second and third parts of this note consist of comments on the editions of Part I and Part II of GB, respectively. The fourth part gives additional references to Frazer's GOLDEN BOUGH, in order to facilitate a better understanding of Wittgenstein's remarks.
