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: 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.

Gedanken von der wahren Schätzung der lebendigen: KANT, Immanuel.

Item Description: Königsberg: Martin Eberhard Dorn, 1746 [recte 1749]., 1749. Octavo (195 x 117 mm). Contemporary sprinkled sheep and speckled boards, spine decorated with gilt rules and floral device in compartments, morocco label, all edges sprinkled. Lower edge and corners very lightly rubbed; an excellent copy. With two folding plates at the end. Very rare first edition of Kant's first book. "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. In his Thoughts on the true estimation of Living Forces [the present work] he took Leibniz's view and tried to explain the nature of space by means of the forces of unextended substances (monads) that cause such substances to interact. He attempted to account for the threefold dimensionality of space by appealing to the laws that govern such interactions; but he was not very successful, as he himself admitted" (DSB).

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: 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. The cause of this became clear eleven years later when "The Critique of Pure Reason" appeared; and with it Kant became 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 to 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."

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).

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.

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: 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.

First German edition of 3 of Herschels most importent contributions to cosmology. The 3 works were published in "Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society" under the titles 1) "Account of some Observations tending to investigate the Constitution of the Heavens" (1784) - 2) "On the Construction of the Heavens" (1785) and 3) "Catalogue of a second Thousand of new Nebulae and Clusters of the Stars; with a few introductory Remarks on the Construction of the heavens" (1789).- The supplement pp. 163-200, giving the abridged version of Kant's "Naturgeschichte und Theorie des Himmels" (1755), is Kant's own abridgement (authentische Auszug), and is hereby issued before the second edition from 1797.

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 Hartknoch, Riga, 1771. THIRD EDITION. TP + [1]-110. Small Octavo. Third Edition (Warda 31). [bound with]Johann Fredrich Hartknoch, Riga und Mietau, 1766. TP + [3]-128/ Small Octavo. First Edition, Second Issue (Warda 42).Beobachtungen:The first edition of Beobachtungen was published by Kanter in 1764. It was in many ways, a response to EdmundBurke's A Philosophical Enquiry into the Origins of our Ideas of the Sublime and Beatiful, published in 1757. Kanter published a second edition of the work in 1766 and this third edition by Hartknoch came out in 1771. The book is divided into four sections, which consider the general nature of feelings of the sublime and the beautiful, the objects and situations etc. which evoke them, and the distinct perceptions of sublimity and beauty in the two sexes and also different nations, in both the ancient and the contemporary world. Träume eines GeistersehersKant's famous attack on the philosophical metaphysicians of his day was indirect - focusing rather on Swedenborg and criticizing him roundly for the same kind of errors then being made by philosophers. Swedenborg believed himself to be as familiarly acquainted with the beyond as with his own house. Was not the case the same with the philosophers? Kant believed himself to be in a position to explain these delusions, the one by the other, and so to get rid of both."So entirely did Kant look down upon Swedenborg and his contemporaries the metaphysicians that he merely played with them, handling them now with serious irony, now with sly humour, sometimes pouring upon them his gallish scorn and dealing them the sharpest blows of his cynical wit. Such a tone is only assumed by one who sees his subject far beneath him. So did Kant hold himself in regard to the metaphysicians, to general philosophical knowledge, yea even to knowledge itself as a whole." (M. Kronenberg: Kant; Sein Leben, and Seine Lehre: Beck, München, 1897 p. 163). Contemporary marbled boards with a dark red field and gilt lettering label to the spine. The head and foot of the spine along with the edges of the spine (most especially the front edge) are worn. With more than a half-page of notes (22 lines) to the front free endpaper written a small contemporary hand. The pages are lightly browned throughout. Overall, a charming copy of these two works by Kant - both published before the release of his first Critik in 1781. ADDITIONAL PHOTOS AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST. Bookseller Inventory # 999
