Item Description: Riga, Johann Friedrich Hartknoch, 1781., 1781. 8vo (205 x 123 mm). Engraved title vignette and a few small engraved vignettes in text. Contemporary marbled paper-covered boards, flat spine with orange label lettered in gilt, edges red. Modern cloth box, orange label. One of the most influential works in the history of philosophy. In the preface to this first edition Kant explains what he means by a critique of pure reason: "I do not mean by this a critique of books and systems, but of the faculty of reason in general, in respect of all knowledge after which it may strive independently of all experience." Before Kant, it was generally held that truths of reason must be analytic, meaning that what is stated in the predicate must already be present in the subject (for example, "An intelligent man is intelligent" or "An intelligent man is a man"). In either case, the judgment is analytic because it is ascertained by analyzing the subject. It was thought that all truths of reason, or necessary truths, are of this kind: that in all of them there is a predicate that is only part of the subject of which it is asserted. If this were so, attempting to deny anything that could be known a priori (for example, "An intelligent man is not intelligent" or "An intelligent man is not a man") would involve a contradiction. It was therefore thought that the law of contradiction is sufficient to establish all a priori knowledge. 'The influence 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 19th century, as they do today' (PMM). - Provenance: Librarie Schlesinger, Vevey (bookseller's small ticket). - Some light marginal spotting, occasional light marginal browning or staining.

Item Description: Königsberg, Martin Eberhard Dorn, 1746. 8vo. Nice newer full vellum with gilt spine. Title-page a bit soiled and with neat reapair to blank margins, far from affecting text. A bit of occasional browning and soiling. one plate repared from verso, no loss. Title-page + 16 pp. + pp. (3) - 240 + 2 folded engraved plates. Fully complete. The exceedingly scarce first edition of Kant's debut, the first work that he ever published, at the mere age of 22. The work constitutes a milestone in the modern discussion of dimensionality.Immanuel Kant (1724-1804) - now considered, along with Plato and Aristotle, the most important philosopher of all time -, entered the university of Königsberg at the age of 16, in 1740. Here he studied mainly mathematics and physics under Martin Knutzen and Johann Teske, until his father's death in 1746. These years proved formative for the young philosophical genious, and his profound interest in the philosophy of science stems from this period. When his father died, however, Kant was forced to break off his studies to help provide for the family, which he did by working as a private tutor for three different families over a period of about nine years. Finally in 1755 he was able to resume his studies at the university, and the same year he received his doctorate of philosophy; in 1770 he was finally given a permanent position, as professor of logic and metaphysics at the University of Königsberg. It is here that he writes the works that have changed the entire trajectory of modern thought - his three seminal critiques, that of pure reason, that of practical reason, and that of judgment. The foundation of Kant's philosophy is laid during his early years of studying, which culminate is this his first publication, "Thoughts on the True Estimation of Living Forces", which constitutes an attempt to determine space dimensionality from a physical law. Kant initially adapted Leibnitz's view and tried to explain the nature of space by means of the forces of monads that cause such substances to interact. Although its basic idea was abandoned during his critic period, Kant's first work nonetheless constitutes amilestone in the modern discussion of dimensionality. "The two main influences on Kant in his philosophical reflections on science were Leibniz and Newton. During his first period of study at the University of Königsberg, from 1740 to 1746, Knutzen taught that version of Leibniz's metaphysics which the German philosopher Christian von Wolff had made popular. He also taught the mathematical physics which Newton had developed. He revealed to the young Kant the various oppositions, puzzles, and contradictions of these two great natural philosophers. The nature of space and time was what interested the young Kant most in these disputes between Leibniz and Newton. He studied the famous exchange of letters between Leibniz and Samuel Clarke, a defender of Newton's philosophy. [.] In his early years Kant pondered the nature of space and time first from the point of view of Leibniz and then of Newton, but eventually he found both positions unsatisfactory." (Ellington, in DSB: VII, pp. 225-26). The nature of space and space dimensionality that Kant attempts to uncover and explain in this his first work comes to found a basis for all his later thought. The role that physics, especially the concepts of space and time, plays for his view of the world and for the development of his philosophical thought is immense, and his earliest thoughts on the subject understream all of his later thought.Warda nr. 1.

Item Description: Riga, Hartknoch, 1781. 8vo. Very nice later (probably around 1920, signed "F. Dudik, Aachen) pastiche-binding of brown half calf with elaborate blindtooling and gild lettering to spine. A bit of wear to extremities, especially corners. A bit of soiling to inner blank margin of title-page. One tiny wormhole to blank margin of first four leaves. A very nice, clean, and fresh copy. (24), 856 pp. Rare first edition of Kant's monumental main work, arguably the most important work in the history of philosophy since Aristotle.The "Critique of Pure Reason" took Kant about a decade to write, and the work is of the utmost scarcity. It is due to this work that Kant became world famous as one of the three or four greatest philosophers of all times, and the work fundamentally changed the face of philosophy. With this work philosophy is finally provided with a new and comprehensive way of dealing systematically with the problems of philosophy. "In 1770 Kant became professor of logic and metaphysics, and at this point there is a sudden falling off in number of his publications. The cause of this became clear eleven years later when "The Critique of Pure Reason" appeared; and with it Kant became famous.

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.

Item Description: Johann Friedrich Hartknoch, Riga, 1781. Book Condition: Very Good +. Dust Jacket Condition: none. First edition. Kant’s Masterpiece: Arguably the Most Important Philosophical Work in Modern TimesKANT, Immanuel. Critik der reinen Vernunft (Critique of Pure Reason), Johann Friedrich Hartknoch, Riga, 1781. 1 blank leaf + TP + 2 leaves = Dedication + 8 leaves = Vorrede + 1 leaf = Inhalt + [1]-856 + 1 blank leaf; Octavo. First Edition [Warda 59]. Kant’s masterpiece, the book that made him world-famous, and arguably the most important book of philosophy published in modern times. "Kant’s great achievement was to conclude finally the line 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’" (PMM, p. 137). Having been woken from his "dogmatic slumbers" by his reading of Hume, Kant went on to effect a "Copernican" revolution in philosophy – the effects of which have not yet subsided. In a letter to Mendelssohn, dated August 18, 1873, Kant claimed that the book was the result of twelve years reflection and that the writing was "affected within four or five months, the greatest attention being paid to the substance, but less regard being had for the form and for the interests of the readers who would understand it easily." Printing and the Mind of Man 226CONDITION: Contemporary half calf with light brown boards. Spine with raised bands forming six compartments. Author and title in gilt on a brownish/orange label with a gilt floral design in the other five compartments. The boards are lightly worn but the spine retains much of the gilt. Moderate foxing to TP and first few leaves, as usual, tightly bound copy. Overall, a beautiful copy of this most important high point in the history of philosophy. Very good or better.

Item Description: Berlin u. Libau, Lagarde und Friederich, 1790. 8vo. Completey uncut. Very nice marbled paper binding with paper label to spine. An excellent copy. LVIII, 476 pp., 1 f. (Errata). The rare first edition of Kant's seminal "Critique of Judgment", the third and last of his critiques which, taken together, arguably constitute the most important contribution to philosophy since Aristotle and Plato. Kant's influence on modern philosophy is primarily due to his critical works, and with them he gives to philosophy a new and comprehensive way of dealing systematically with the problems of philosophy. In the "Critique of Judgment", Kant develops philosophical aesthetics and teleology that comprises nature and art. This aesthetics fulfills an essential systematic function in the Kantian architectonic. It bridges the gap between reason and nature, thus serving as a complement to practical reason of which Kant had proposed a critique two years earlier.The third critique is essential to an understanding of Kant's project of a critical philosophy. It is here that he seeks to join the dimensions of human experience which he had laid bare in the two previous critiques. A number of the conceptual foundations he had laid from 1782 break down, as he tries to demonstrate that aesthetics mediates between the realm of sensibility and that of reason.In order to do so, he sets out to show that aesthetic intuition ranges over both realms. The key to this demonstration is the claim that the two realms are isomorphic. However, as Kant considers the aesthetic judgment of the products of man's artistic invention, he cannot fit them into the format of a teleology of nature. Instead, he develops a conceptual framework for aesthetic judgment which explains why the first section on the faculty of aesthetic judgment swelled to the point of dwarfing the section on the teleology of nature.In the third critique the tension which inhere in the project of a critical philosophy rises to the surface. The third critique thus provides us with an invaluable glimpse into the actual workings of the mental faculties that Kant attempted to chart in his philosophy. For this very reason, the third critique provided the point of departure for much of later idealist philosophy, especially that of Hegel whose speculative philosophy can be seen as an articulation of the topics which Kant had uncovered in the third critique.

Octavo, contemporary boards rebacked with half brown straight-grain morocco, uncut and largely unopened. $7000.First edition in English (published the year after the first German edition) of this introduction to the philosophy of Immanuel Kant by one of his most fervent disciples, Jakob Sigismund Beck. A fine copy, uncut in contemporary boards.Kant’s status “as the greatest philosopher of the last 300 years is well assured… It is not too much to say that all modern epistemology, metaphysics and even ethics is implicitly affected by the [philosophical] architecture he created” (Blackburn, 206). After studying under Kant, Jakob Beck went on to teach philosophy himself at Halle and Rostock. “He devoted himself to criticism and explanation of the doctrine of Kant, and in 1793 published [a three-volume] compendium of Kantian doctrine… [Later,] he published the Grundriss der krit. Philosophic (1796), containing an interpretation of the Kantian Kritik,” and here first translated into English, by John Richardson (Britannica). Lowndes, 1252. Graesse IV:4. See Edwards I:268.

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 .

Item Description: Riga, Johann Friedrich Hartknoch, 1787. 8vo. Original blue paper boards with original orange-brown paper spine. Contemporary handwritten paper title-label to spine. Minor wear to extremities and spine a bit soiled. All in all very fine. Internally light brownspotting, as usual. One leaf with a neat repair to inner blank margin, not affecting any lettering. Old owner's inscription to front free end-paper. XLIV, 884 pp. The very important second edition of Kant's monumental main work, -arguably the most important work in the history of philosophy since Aristotle. The text of the second, by Kant himself much enlarged and revised, edition is considered the standard version of the "Critique of Pure Reason" - the so-called B-text - and the basis text for all later editions of the work; thus the present version of the work constitutes one of the most important and influential texts in the history of philosophy. The "Critique of Pure Reason" took Kant about a decade to write, and in 1781 the first edition, which is a rarity, appeared. Kant kept working on his magnum opus, and in 1787 the much revised and enlarged second edition of it appeared. It is due to this work that Kant became world famous as one of the three or four greatest philosophers of all times, and the work fundamentally changed the face of philosophy. With this work philosophy is finally provided with a new and comprehensive way of dealing systematically with the problems of philosophy. "In 1770 Kant became professor of logic and metaphysics, and at this point there is a sudden falling off in number of his publications.

Item Description: Riga, Hartknoch, 1788. 8vo. Contemporary half calf with gilt title-label to spine. Spine and corners a bit rubbed, but fine, tight, and completely unrestored. Internally very nice and clean. An excellent copy. Woodcut title-vignette. 292 pp. First edition of Kant's second main work, the second of his critical works, and his main work on practical philosophy. Together Kant's three critiques, that of pure reason, that of practical reason and that of judgement, make up the most important contribution to philosophy since Aristotle and Plato. Kant's influence on modern philosophy is primarily due to his critical works, and with them he gives to philosophy a new and comprehensive way of dealing systematically with the problems of philosophy. In his "Critique of Practical reason" Kant establishes the "Categorical Imperative", which was to found modern ethics, and with it he establishes the moral philosophy that ties together all of his critical philosophy. The work has dominated Western ethical thought decisively from the time of its appearance.Warda: 112. See also Printing and the Mind of Man 226 (Critik der reinen Vernunft).

Item Description: Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. The important second 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 made many changes in this, the so-called 'B' text, entirely recasting the Transcendental Deduction of the Categories and The Paralogisms of Pure Reason, and adding new material - most notably the Refutation of Idealism - in order to clear up misunderstandings of the 'A' text of 1781.

Item Description: Riga, bey Johann Friedrich Hartknoch, 1783. 8vo. A very nice contemporary cardboard binding with marbled paper, gilt line-decoration and gilt title-label to spine. A light, small damp stain to upper margin of first two leaves, after the attempted removal of an old owner's name (still legible, dated 1889). A very nice and clean copy. Woodcut title-vignette, woodcut rod with floral vine-headpiece on p. 3, and woodcut end-vignette (rod with leaves). 222 pp. The rare first edition, first issue, of Kant's masterpiece, the more popular exposition of the ideas presented in his main work "Critik der reinen Vernunft" (1781). Three variants of the first edition appeared in the same year, distinguishable by head- and tailpieces; this is the first, as described in Warda, 75.This work constitutes a more comprehensible exposition of the main thoughts of Kant's "Critique of Pure Reason", and the "prolegomena", being one of the most frequently read and most approachable of his works, also became one of Kant's most influential. It is responsible for spreading his thoughts among a much wider audience than his other works. After having received immense negative critique and having been misunderstood with the first edition of the "Critique of Pure Reason", Kant wrote his "Prolegomena" as a defense and explanation; he later incorporated much of it into the second edition of the "Critique of Pure Reason". It is with the ideas expounded in this work that Kant becomes world-famous. "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 influence 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.

Item Description: Riga, Hartknoch, 1788. 8vo. A bit later (1840'ies) half cloth with gilding to spine. Old allegorical stamp to title-page; another stamp at lower margin removed, likewise old owner's name.Otherwise a very nice copy. Woodcut title-vignette. 292 pp. First edition of Kant's second main work, the second of his critical works, and his main work on practical philosophy. Together Kant's three critiques, that of pure reason, that of practical reason and that of judgement, make up the most important contribution to philosophy since Aristotle and Plato. Kant's influence on modern philosophy is primarily due to his critical works, and with them he gives to philosophy a new and comprehensive way of dealing systematically with the problems of philosophy. In his "Critique of Practical reason" Kant establishes the "Categorical Imperative", which was to found modern ethics, and with it he establishes the moral philosophy that ties together all of his critical philosophy. The work has dominated Western ethical thought decisively from the time of its appearance.Warda: 112. See also Printing and the Mind of Man 226 (Critik der reinen Vernunft).

Item Description: 1836. First Edition. KANT, Immanuel. Metaphysical Works… with a Sketch of His Life and Writings by John Richardson… Containing 1. Logic. 2. Prolegomena to Future Metaphysics. 3. Enquiry into the Proofs for the Existence of God, and into the Theodicy, now first published. London: (W. Simpkin and R. Marshall), 1836. Octavo, contemporary three-quarter tan calf, raised bands, black morocco spine label, marbled boards, endpapers and edges. $3800.First editions in English of Kant’s Prolegomena, Logic and Enquiry… into the Grounds of Proof for thee Existence of God, each in the authoritative Richardson translation from the German, collected in the 1836 volume of Kant’s Metaphysical Works, with two full-page engraved portraits, scarce in contemporary calf.“Kant’s great achievement was to conclude finally the lines on which philosophical speculation had proceeded in the 18th century, and to open up a new and more comprehensive system… The influence 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” (PMM 226). This scarce 1836 volume of Metaphysical Works brings together three important first editions in English of Kant’s works. Leading the collection is the first edition in English of Logic, based on lectures delivered from 1755-1798. Next is the first edition in English of Prolegomena, an especially “important” work first published in 1783 shortly after Kant’s Critique of Pure Reason (1781) (Encyclopedia of Philosophy IV:310). “Few will take exception to the verdict of Schopenhauer that the Prolegomena is the most beautiful and comprehensible of Kant’s major writings… There exists hardly any philosophical system which is not in one way or another indebted to Kant” (Oxford Companion to German Literature). Concluding this important collection is the 1836 first publication in English of Kant’s Enquiry. General 1836 title page of Metaphysical Works, first issued in 1819 without Enquiry. Each work independently paginated and with a separate title page: Prolegomena (1819; first German edition, 1783), Logic (1819; first German edition, 1800), Enquiry with title page stating: “Printed in 1819, but now first published.” Thus, this volume contains the first edition, second issues of the Prolegomena and the Logic, and the first edition, first issue of the Enquiry. Containing main engraved frontispiece portrait of Kant; Enquiry with engraved frontispiece of Kant and Hume. With Prolegomena half title; rear advertisement leaf. Palmquist IV. Armorial bookplate of Richard W. Church, Dean of St. Paul’s, who was also a co-founder of the Guardian newspaper and a contributor to The Saturday Review. Owner inscription. Occasional early inked underlining, marginalia.Interior fresh with only lightest scattered foxing, slight rubbing, edge-wear to boards. An extremely good copy. Bookseller Inventory # 84812

Item Description: Johann Friedrich Hartknoch, 1787. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. No Jacket. 1st Edition. KANT, Immanuel. Critik der reinen Vernunft (Critique of Pure Reason). Johann Friedrich Hartknoch, Riga, 1787. 1 blank leaf TP + 2 leaves = Dedication + [VII]-XLIV = Vorrede + [1]-884, [with pages 454 through 489 unnumbered as usual], Octavo. Second Edition. [Warda 60]Kant’s masterpiece, the book that made him world-famous, and arguably the most important book of philosophy published in modern times. "Kant’s great achievement was to conclude finally the line 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’" (PMM, p. 137). Having been woken from his "dogmatic slumbers" by his reading of Hume, Kant went on to effect a "Copernican" revolution in philosophy -- the effects of which have not yet subsided.The so-called "B" text which Kant heavily revised and which must be compared and contrasted with the original first edition "A" text. Almost all modern editions and translations blend elements of both the "A" and the "B" versions of the text.Kant included here his own substantive amplifications, corrections, and improvements, noting some but not all of these in the new Introduction. At the time, Kant considered this to be the "definitive edition," but made further incorporations in the 1790 edition. Today, philosophers still think it necessary to have both the "A" and "B" versions of the text available when studying the work.CONDITION: Contemporary half-leather with marbled boards. Spine with surface/visual cracking only to leather, but solid. Beautiful contemporary hand-scripted label to spine. Light scuffing to boards.

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).CONDITION: Contemporary 3 4-leather with sprinkled light-tan boards.

Kant wrote his Prolegomena to Any Future Metaphysics as a clarification of the Critique of Pure Reason, which he believed to had been widely misunderstood on publication two years previously. It became one of Kant's most influential works and he incorporated much of it into the second edition of the Critique, itself now accepted as "Kant's great achievement [which] concluded finally the lines on which philosophical speculation had proceeded in the eighteenth century" (PMM 226). An attractively bound copy of this highly important work, with an interesting Hungarian provenance. Warda 76. Bookseller Inventory # 110244

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.
