About this Item

First Edition of One of Kant's Most Significant Later Works Kant, Immanuel [1724-1804]. Metaphysische Anfangsgrunde der Rechtslehre. Konigsberg: Bey Friedrich Nicolovius, 1797. [ii], xii, LII, [53]-235, [1] pp. Octavo (7-1/2" x 4-1/2"). Later marbled boards, edges rouged. Light rubbing to boards, about half of backstrip lacking, including lettering piece, a few partial cracks to text block. Moderate toning, negligible foxing to a few leaves, internally clean. Ex-library. Bookplate to front pastedown, small inkstamp to head of title page, hand-lettered shelf numbers to verso. $325. * First edition. One of the most significant late works by the great Prussian philosopher. It was also issued the same year as the first part of Die Metaphysik der Sitten (The Metaphysics of Morals). Sensitive to the revolutionary spirit spreading throughout Europe in the wake of Napoleon's armies, it presents a republican interpretation of political communities, civil society and the establishment of positive law. Claiming that man is born with reason and an innate desire for freedom, he argued that the union of these natural gifts could bring about a new sense of order and harmony in future generations. It was been translated as the Science of Right (Hastie) and the Metaphysical Elements of Justice (Ladd). British Museum Catalogue (Compact Edition) 13:971. Bookseller Inventory # 61751
