Item Description: [Königsberg nach 1766]., 1766. 8vo (116 : 100 mm). 1 3/4 S. Gedanken über die Gesellschaft und über den Geschmack. "V. Das vornehmste Mittel das Vergnügen des Lebens irgend wo zu finden ist die Gesellschaft. Daher die gesellschaftliche Neigung und Bedürfnis, aber nach langer Erfahrung die Sehnsucht zu einer retraite abgesondert von der Gesellschaft zu leben . Der Mensch sucht unter seines gleichen Eintracht die Natur will aber Zwietracht um unaufhörlich einen Sporn der Thätigkeit und Beeiferung zu geben. Freundschaft aus affection ist eine bloße Idee. Gesellig ist der so selbst ein angenehmes Glied jeder gesellschaft seyn kan. Meine lieben Freunde es giebt keinen Freund .". Befriedigung und Glücksgefühl in der Gesellschaft erlange man nur durch nützliches Handeln für die Gesellschaft. ". Man kan seinem Leben in seinen eignen Augen nur einen Werth geben durch das was man thut nicht durch das was man genießt ein nützlicher Mann ist zugleich ein glüklicher Mann vornemlich je mehr er den Eigennutz gebändigt hat. Sonst in Zerstreuung das Wohlbefinden zu suchen macht das Gemüth in der Einsamkeit leer und zur schreklichen Verlassenheit und Einöde .". - Die zweite Seite unter der Überschrift "Geschmack" enthält Überlegungen zur Ästhetik. ". Was auch ohne alles Interesse gefällt ist schön. Was interessirt aber nur so fern es von dem Subject selbst hervorgebracht oder als ein solches möglich betrachtet wird ist gut. Was gefällt aus objectiven Gründen aber nicht durch Begriffe ist Schön ." (zitiert unter Auflösung der von Kant häufig gebrauchten Abkürzungen). - Leicht stockfleckig. - Das Blatt stammt aus Kants Handexemplar seiner 1766 in Königsberg erschienenen Schrift "Beobachtungen über das Gefühl des Schönen und Erhabenen", das vom Autor mit zahlreichen Einfügungen versehen war. Am Unterrand ein zweizeiliger Nachtrag von der Hand des 1836 verstorbenen Pfarrers Christian Friedrich Puttlich, der bei Kant Vorlesungen gehört hatte und aus dessen Nachlaß das Blatt stammt. - Mit unbedeutenden Abweichungen erstmals veröffentlicht von Arthur Warda unter dem Titel "Drei lose Blätter aus Kants Nachlass" in der Altpreussischen Monatsschrift, Band XXXX, Heft 7/8, wovon ein Separatabdruck hier beiliegt.

Item Description: Hardcover. Book Condition: Near Fine. First edition of Kant's greatest work, the CRITIQUE OF PURE REASON, widely considered the most influential book in philosophy since Aristotle. Warda 59; Adickes 46. 'Kant does, I must say, make writers like Locke and Berkeley, and indeed Hume, excellent though they are, look to me rather like amateurs' (Sir Geoffrey Warnock in discussion with Bryan Magee, The Great Philosophers, BBC Books, 1987, p. 187). 'Kant's great achievement was to conclude finally the lines on which philosophical speculation had proceeded in the eighteenth century, and to open up a new and more comprehensive system of dealing with the problems of philosophy. The infuence of Kant is paramount in the critical method of modern philosophy. No other thinker has been able to hold with such firmness the balance between speculative and empirical ideas. His penetrating analysis of the elements involved in synthesis, and the subjective process by which these elements are realized in the individual consciousness, demonstrated the operation of "pure reason"; and the simplicity and cogency of his arguments achieved immediate fame. Kant's achievements in other branches of philosophy were equally distinguished and fruitful. His methods dominated western philosophical thought throughout the nineteenth century, as they do today' (Printing and the Mind of Man 226). PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: 8vo, [xxiv], 856 pp. (426-461 unpaginated as usual), contemporary half vellum over speckled boards, lightly rubbed and marked, edges red, 20th-century bookplate on pastedown, front free endpaper (top corner clipped) with two 19th-century ownership signatures and a small inscription dated 1957, a few pages with pencilled underlining and marginal reading marks, some light marginal browning and isolated spots, a very well-preserved copy.

Item Description: Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. First edition of Kant's third and final Critique, by far the scarcest of his major works. Goethe said the "Critique of Judgement" was the first philosophical book ever to move him, and Fichte called it 'the crown of the critical philosophy'. Warda 125; Adickes 71. PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: 8vo, lviii, 476 pp. + errata leaf, nicely rebound in modern dark green half calf, title-page somewhat dusty and with a small early ownership inscription 'Baur', small stains on Aa2 and Bb2 and some light spotting in the margins, still a very good copy.

Item Description: Kl.-8vo (161 x 100 mm). Titel, 114 S. Halblederband mit Rückentitel in Goldprägung. Königsberg, chez Frédéric Nicolovius, [Janvier] 1796. Erste französische Ausgabe von Immanuel Kants Gedanken zum Ewigen Frieden, die ihren Verfasser auch als einen der geistigen Gründerväter der UNO ausweist. Intendiert wurde dieser völker- und weltbürgerrechtliche Entwurf zu einem univesalen Friedensvertrag unmittelbar durch den 'Basler Friedensschluss', den Frankreich und Preussen am 5. April 1795 besiegelten. Zur Leipziger Buchmesse Ende September 1795 aufgelegt, veranlasste Kant umgehend eine Uebertragung ins Französische und liess sie "als erste Ausgabe überhaupt" (H. F. Klemme) um einen Zusatz vermehrt (Geheimer Artikel zum ewigen Frieden) in Königsberg im Januar 1796 veröffentlichen. Im Herbst desselben Jahres wurde diese französische Uebersetzung im Verlag Jansen et Perronneau unverändert nachgedruckt und auf Seite 113 des 'Magazine encyclopédique' annonciert. "Dieser Vorgang ist umso bemerkenswerter, als die 'Kritik de reinen Vernunft' erst 1835 ins Französische übersetzt wurde. Er erklärt sich durch die weitgehend politisch motivierten Bemühungen einer Reihe deutscher Emigranten, die von Kant eingeleitete 'kopernikanische Wendung' des philosophischen Denkens, welche auf französisch durch "révolution copernicienne" wiedergegeben wird, als deutsche Parallele zur französischen Revolution darzustellen" (Heinz Wismann). Dies geht deutlich aus den seit März 1795 in der Zeitschrift Le Moniteur abgedruckten Leserbriefen und der ebendort am 3. Januar 1796 von Ludwig Ferdinand Huber anonym veröffentlichten Zusammenfassung der 'Friedensschrift' hervor. In diesen Zusammenhang gehört auch der wiederholte Versuch, einen direkten Kontakt zwischen Immanuel Kant und dem in den revolutionären Verfassungsdebatten wortführenden Abt [Emmanuel-Joseph] Siéyès herzustellen . Um den Gerüchten über seine Beziehungen zu Siéyès ein Ende zu setzen, liess Kant am 7. März in den Königsbergischen Gelehrten und Politischen Zeitungen ein ausdrückliches Dementi abdrucken. Insofern ist das unter dem Titel Antwortschreiben des Professors Kant in Königsberg an den Abt Siéyès in Paris 1796 aus dem lateinischen Original übersetzte "in Umlauf gebrachte Elaborat mit Sicherheit eine Fälschung. Unter den hinterlassenen Papieren von Siéyès ist übrigens vor einiger Zeit eine von Karl Wilhelm Théremin hergestellte französische Nachschrift der Antwort Kants an Karl Ludwig Théremin vom 9. März 1796 entdeckt worden, in der Kant ihn bittet, dem Abt Siéyès seine Vorstellungen hinsichtlich des 'rein literarischen' Projekts, seine Werke in Frankreich bekannt zu machen, zu übermitteln. In der Liste der Werke, deren Übersetzung Kant nahelegt, fehlt allerdings die Schrift Zum ewigen Frieden. Möglicherweise lässt sich diese Auslassung als Indiz dafür interpretieren, dass die Übersetzung 'unter den Augen des Autors' bereits im Gange war. Es ist überdies durchaus denkbar, dass Kant von der Vermittlungsinitiative eines anderen Grenzgängers wusste, der am 10. Januar 1796 Siéyès eine komprimierte französische Fassung des Textes geschickt hatte. Es handelt sich um Karl Friedrich Reinhard, der als französischer Botschafter bei den Hansestädten akkreditiert war und dessen Sendung im Nachlass von Siéyès wiederaufgetaucht ist . " (Heinz Wismann). - Hs. Besitzeintrag auf Titel und S. 100 unten. Commandeur en chef, 4e corps de la Grande Armée (Stempel auf Titel und S. 100). Die Kommandanten des vierten Corps waren sukzessive: Soult (1805-1808), Masséna (1809), Eugène de Beauharnais (1812-1813), Bertrand (1813) und Gérard während der Cent Jours (1815).

Item Description: Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. Sammelband of four pre-critical works: (1) Der einzig mögliche Beweisgrund zu einer Demonstration des Daseyns Gottes. Königsberg: Johann Jakob Kanter, 1763. First edition. 'Kant's early writings such as "The One Possible Basis for a Demonstration of the Existence of God" engage the concept of God in terms of principles and arguments that had been framed by the metaphysical systems of Leibniz and Wolff as well as by the theoretical structure of Newtonian physics. Kant had not yet articulated a definitive break with the approach of the rationalist metaphysics of his predecessors, so his discussions presuppose the validity of the enterprise of constructing an adequate theoretical argument for the existence of God. Even so, he makes a number of points in these works that prefigure key arguments that his mature critical philosophy will later raise against the way rationalist metaphysics had traditionally treated the status and function of the concept of God. In particular he has already formulated a central feature of the main objection that he will raise against the ontological argument in the Critique of Pure Reason, namely, that existence is not a predicate' (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy). Adickes 33. (2) Versuch den Begriff der negativen Größen in die Weltweisheit einzuführen. Königsberg: Johann Jacob Kanter, 1763. First edition of the important essay in which Kant can be seen responding to 'Hume's Problem' about causality, the problem which he later said had first awoken him from his dogmatic slumber (Prolegomena, 1783). 'After reading Hume's Enquiry concerning Human Understanding in German translation sometime after 1755, Kant distinguishes between real and logical grounds/opposition in his "Attempt to Introduce the Concept of Negative Magnitudes into Philosophy" (1763) in order to avoid Hume's objection that there is no logical contradiction in the existence of one thing not following the existence of another. But in this work he is also interested in exploring the notion of a real ground/opposition further by applying it more widely, e.g., to bodies, mental states, etc.' (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy). Adickes 34. (3) Träume eines Geistersehers, erläutert durch Träume der metaphysic. Riga und Mietau: J.F. Hartnoch, 1766. Second printing (the same year as Kanter's first) of "Dreams of a Spirit-Seer", the famous discussion of Swedenborg, and 'the only book for which Kant ever came close to apologising' particularly because of 'the scatological German outspokenness' of a sentence at the end of the third chapter (see Kuehn, p. 172). Of Swedenborg's original work Russell quips 'four copies were sold, three to unknown purchasers and one to Kant' (A History of Western Philosophy, p. 732). Adickes 40. (4) Beobachtungen über des Gefühl des Schönen und Erhabenen. Riga: Friedrich Hartknoch, 1771. Third edition of "Observations on the Feeling of the Beautiful and the Sublime" (first published in 1764). This was actually Kant's most popular work, going through eight printings during his lifetime. Light-hearted in tone, it includes comments, typical of the age, on the differences between the sexes and between races. John Zammito and others have viewed it as a kind of proto-anthropology, prefiguring some of Kant's later work. Adickes 38. PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: 4 works in one volume, 8vo, 205, [1], [viii], 72, 128, [ii], 110 pp., contemporary half vellum over speckled boards, spine hand-lettered, rubbed, moderate worm damage to surface of front board, faint stamps to first title-page and two other leaves, some light browning and spotting, all very good copies.

Item Description: Johann Friedrich Hartknoch, Riga, 1783. FIRST EDITION. 1 blank leaf + TP + [3]-222 + 1 blank leaf, Octavo. First Edition, First Printing (Warda 75). This, Kant's defense of his Critik der reinen Vernunft, is considered by many to be his most beautiful and comprehensive book. It continues to be read and admired as one of his most concise and approachable works. The book was written primarily to remove some of the misunderstandings and bewilderment that had greeted the release of the first edition of the Critik in 1781. Kant felt that he had been severely misunderstood and hence, unfairly criticized - most especially by Garve in his review of the book in the Göttinger Gelehrten Anzeiger. The principal contents of the Prolegomena were subsequently incorporated by Kant into the second edition of the Critik der reinen Vernunft in 1787. First printing with the floriated bar headpiece on page [3] (rather than the second and third printings that have the two cherubs headpiece - Warda 76 & 77) and the floriated bar on page 222 (rather than the bar with climbing leaves - Warda 76 - or a small ornamental piece with climbing flora - Warda 77). Finally, on page 78, line 8 the word "subjektiv" appears rather than "objektiv" - which was corrected in the two later printings. Contemporary ¾-leather with sprinkled light-tan boards. Spine with five raised bands and gilt lettering to label. Spine edges a bit worn and corners slightly bumped. Small rectangular cut-out to top corner of the front free end paper. Light toning to title page opposite cut-out. Very occasional pencil marginalia. A truly lovely copy of one of Kant's most important and popular works. ADDITIONAL PHOTOS AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST.

The second major Critik, in which Kant undertakes a more elaborate survey of moral concepts and assumptions than in his Grundlegung zur Metaphysik der Sitten of 1785."The Critique of Practical Reason aims at the coordination of human intellect and conscience, stressing that moral action may be accompanied by pleasure, but should on no account be determined by it. Moral conduct should be guided only by criterion of duty, which Kant considered the sole foundation of human freedom, this concept resting upon the submission of the individual will to the sublime moral law" (Garden Ltd., #162).

Riga: Bey Johann Friedrich Hartknoch, 1788.First edition of Kant’s second Critiques, begun with his Critik der reinen Vernunft ("Critique of Pure Reason") in 1781. Octavo (7 7/8 x 4 5/8 inches; 200 x 118 mm.). 292 pp.Contemporary paper over boards. Edges stained red. Top 1 1/2 inches cut from front free-endpaper. Occasional neat pencil underlining throughout and a few very minor, mainly marginal stains. Otherwise a fine copy."Kant’s concept of the ‘categorical imperative’—the foundation of modern ethics—stems from the second of his three Critiques. The term ‘categorical imperative’ refers to an unconditional or absolute moral law, the validity of which does not depend on the ends achieved by its application. According to Kant, there was only one such law, which he formulated variously; one of his formulations was: ‘Act only on such a maxim as you can will that it should become a universal law.’ The Critique of practical reason is the primary source for Kant’s ethical doctrines and also for his views on the function of practical or moral reason in the attainment of knowledge" (Norman Library).Adickes 67.

A Complete Exposition of His Ethical Beliefs.The two parts of The Metaphysics of Morals were published separately (in January and August of 1797 respectively). Kant felt that a more detailed description and analysis of his ethical position was called for and he developed those details in a series of lectures and then presented them in a two part work: The Metaphysic of Morals. "He sets these consequences out in his lectures on ethics and develops them in detail later in his 1797 Metaphysic of Morals. To judge him by the Groundwork and the Critique of Practical Reason taken together, is to do less than justice to the scope of his ethical reflections" (Encyclopedia of Philosoph6y, IV, p. 318). Contemporary ¾-leather with sprinkled boards. There is some light wear to extremities and sparsely scattered pencil marginalia side. Contemporary ownership inscription to front free end paper. Internally bright and crisp. A beautiful copy of one of Kant's most important works. ADDITIONAL PHOTOS AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST. Bookseller Inventory # 708

Item Description: Johann Friedrich Hartknoch, Riga, 1783. FIRST EDITION, THIRD PRINTING. TP + [3]-222, small Octavo. First Edition, Third Printing, (Warda 77). This, Kant's defense of his Critik der reinen Vernunft, is considered by many to be his most beautiful and comprehensive book. It continues to be read and admired as one of his most concise and approachable works. The book was written primarily to remove some of the misunderstandings and bewilderment that had greeted the release of the first edition of the Critik in 1781. Kant felt that he had been severely misunderstood and hence, unfairly criticized. The principal contents of the Prolegomena were subsequently incorporated by Kant into the second edition of the Critik der reinen Vernunft in 1787. The first printing of this book (Warda 75) has a floriated bar headpiece on page three rather than the two cherubs headpiece found in the second and third issues (Warda 76 & 77). In addition, the first issue has a floriated bar on page 222 (rather than the bar with climbing leaves - Warda 76 - or a small ornamental piece with climbing flora - Warda 77) Finally, in the first issue, page 78, line eight has the misprinted "subjektiv" rather than the correct"'objektiv" - which appear in the two later issues. Contemporary ¾ leather with speckled brown boards. Spine with five raised bands and gilt lettered on label and a gilt floral design the compartment below the title. Spine edges very lightly worn and corners slightly bumped. Overall, a bright, clean and tight copy in a nice contemporary binding of one of Kant's most popular works. PHOTOS AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST.

Item Description: Hardcover. Book Condition: Fair. INTERLEAVED COPY WITH CONTEMPORARY ANNOTATIONS AND A SKETCH DEPICTING KANT. First issue of the first edition. Adickes 104. 'Between 1755, when he received the venia legendi, and 1796, when he ended his teaching activity, Kant taught logic some 30 times. In accordance with the requirements of the Prussian ministry of culture, his course lectures were built around a recognized text, G. F. Meier's 1752 Auszug aus der Vernunftlehre. Kant did not merely present Meier's views, however, but commented on and criticized these as he thought appropriate; his own copy of Meier was full of marginal notes and interleaved with notes on separate bits of paper. When in 1799 he entrusted G. B. Jäsche with this material for the compiling of a logic text, the thought was presumably of a Kantian logic organized around Meier's framework. Since logic plays such a prominent role in the Critical philosophy, one would expect the Jäsche logic to be viewed as an important tool for the interpretation of the Critical philosophy. But dissatisfaction with it was evident right from its original publication in 1800' (Hoke Robinson, Journal of the History of Philosophy, 38.4, 2000, p. 603). PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: 8vo, xxiv, 232 pp., with the errata leaf, contemporary marbled boards very rubbed and worn at corners, spine and label renewed, title-page with taped repairs to edge and inscription 'ex Bibliotheca Wilmus[?]', the first 12 pages with underlinings in early ink, interleaved, with contemporary annotations in a rather hasty German cursive on 43 of the blank pages, and a humorous sketch on the rear pastedown of 'Dr. Imm. Kant en miniature' with the word 'Logik' emerging from his mouth, an interesting copy. Bookseller Inventory # ABE-13551235754

Item Description: Riga: bey Johann Friedrich Hartknoch, 1790., 1790. Kant must be regarded as one of the most important, if not the greatest, philosopher of the modern era. Born in Kšningsberg in East Prussia, he was educated at the university there and subsequently passed a quiet life as a member of the faculty, first as Privatdozent and then, after 1770, as professor of logic and metaphysics. He was the first major philosopher of modern times who was also always a teacher of philosophy. Like Plato and Aquinas, Kant was a synthesizer, starting from the groundwork laid by Locke, Leibniz, and especially Hume, with whom he was philosophically most sympathetic, and fabricating a system of thought that underlay the philosophizing of several succeeding generations Octavo. XLIV, 884 pp. A bit later drab boards with sheep backstrip, gilt spine with paste-paper label. Small ink notation on title-page, title lightly foxed. A very good copy. Kant published his great masterpiece in 1781, and a second edition appeared in 1787. Kant revised the work substantially for the second edition, and this third edition consolidates those changes. This is the first issue of the third edition. A later issue is called "Dritte unveraenderte Auflage." The present work was the first great product of KantÕs innovative philosophy, appearing originally in 1781. It displays a considerable improvement over his predecessorsÕ theories of cognition. Earlier thinkers regarded perceptions as of discrete events, unrelated except by habit (as Leibniz), or incapable of being connected by the mind (Hume). Rejecting Cartesian metaphysics, Leibnizian monadism, and the negation of real cognition arrived at by Hume through Locke, Kant formulated a theory of cognition as a synthetic act, operating through the mental combination of detached elements of experience. In his view, spatial and temporal relations are essential forms of our consciousness; therefore, our perceptions are ordered in the very process of perceiving, making understanding and the acquisition of knowledge possible.

Item Description: Frankfurt/Leipzig, 1797. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. 2nd Edition. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. Uncut in cont. marbled boards w. wear. Back almost gone. Brownspotted. Scarce second edition of Kant's third work, first printed in 1755. An "Auszug", i.e only part of the Naturgeschichte, was printed in 1791, but no other editions or part of the work appeared between 1755 and 1797, though a third and fourth edition appeared in 1798 and 1808. All editions of this work are of great rarity. In his youth Kant was a great admirerer of Newton, and in this work he bases his theories on him, but at the same time goes far beyond him. Kant describes how the solar system originated, and does this on the basis of his own mechanical principles. "In his "Theory of the heavens", Kant, by a series of bold strokes, anticipated astronomical facts that were later confirmed by very powerful observational techniques and with the help of relativistic cosmological theory. He conjectured that our solar system is a part of a vast system of stars making up a single galaxy, that the so-called nebolous-stars are galactic systems external to but similar to our own galaxy (a fact that was not confirmed until the twentieth century), and that there are many such galaxies making up the universe as a whole."

Item Description: Book Condition: very good. London 1836 [but each printed for Simpkin & Marshall in 1819]. Octavo modern half calf; two engraved portraits (one for the first, the other for the third work), collective title and title for each work. A little browning here and there, a rather good, fresh copy. First English edition of the third work and re-issues of the original 1819 sheets of the first two. The Enquiry was also printed in 1819 but never published for some reason. Lack of interest easily explains the existence of unsold sheets being gathered together for sale (by Pickering?) in 1836 but not why the Enquiry was killed before birth. The title pages for Logic and Prolegomena each carry the 1819 Simpkin Marhsall imprint but are on different paper to the text - are these reprints made in 1836? Richardson was an old Kantian, he published the first translations of Kant into English in 1798 and apparently corresponded with Kant but otherwise remains in the shadows from what I can discern.

Item Description: Friedrich Nicolovius, Konigsberg, 1798. FIRST EDITION. 1 leaf + TP + [iii]-xiv + half-title + [5]-334, Octavo. First Edition (Warda 195). Kant's Major Contribution to PsychologyKant's major contribution to psychiatry and psychology in which he classified the mental diseases and analyzed sensation, imagination and feeling, concluding that the study of man could not be scientific since it was not mathematizable. This is the last of Kant's self-published works and his only published work dealing with medical psychology wherein he makes a major contribution to psychiatry. In the preface, he points out that this text represents his manual for a course of lectures which he gave over a period of thirty years at the University of Konigsberg. The Anthropologie was Kant's attempt to catalogue the powers of the mind and to describe their functions in some detail. For a number of years he had been researching and lecturing about various classifications of mental disorders. Kant "introduces a point of view and a methodological suggestion which at the same time was highly original and which was to prove extremely fruitful. Kant suggested that mental disease has something to do with the interaction of man's need and the demands his environment makes upon him, or the frustration to which it subjects him" (Zilboorg, A History of Medical Psychology, pp. 308-09). Contemporary ¾-leather with sprinkled light-tan boards, slightly bumped and nicked. Tight binding. Pages with very faint foxing. Ownership scription to front free end paper.
