In April 1793, as he was preparing to go to war with the future Suleiman II (1795-1822) against another brother who had claimed the throne, Molei Abdessalam, son of Mahomet XVI, sent his wives, concubines, and children on a ship bound for Salé, with instructions that if they could not reach that city they were to go to Portugal. Due to contrary winds and illness on board, the ship put into the bay of Cascais, where João de Sousa (a native of Damascus, and a fluent speaker of Arabic) was sent to meet them. The wives were entertained royally, introduced to the king at Queluz, and given tours of the surrounding area. They embarked for Morocco in early August.

        Le Petit Neptune Francais: or, French Coasting Pilot.

      London: for W. Faden, 1793. - FADEN, William (1749-1836). Le Petit Neptune Francais: or, French Coasting Pilot, for the coast of Flanders, Channel, Bay of Biscay, and Mediterranean, to which is added the coast of Italy from the River Var To Orbitello: with the Gulf of Naples and the island of Corsica. London: for W. Faden, 1793. 4to (10 4/8 x 8 2/8 inches). Engraved frontispiece showing the Tower of Cordouan, 37 fine folding engraved charts, and 2 full-page, of the coast of France, 3 folding plates of coastal profiles (short separation at fold to map of "L'Orient to St. Gilles", occasional light spotting and offsetting). Contemporary half tan sprinkled calf, marbled paper boards, yellow edges (extremities scuffed, chipped with minor loss at the head and foot of the spine). In anticipation of a war with revolutionary France, William Faden re-engraved charts that had appeared in Thomas Jeffery's "Le Petit Neptune Francois" of 1761.Initially Britain did not involve itself in the French Revolution, but in 1793 France declared war, and for the next 22 years the Royal Navy reigned supreme. The first major naval battle of the conflict, fought on the first of June, 1794, was the Battle of the First of June, also called the Battle of the Glorious First of June, or the Battle of Ushant. Fought between the French and the British in the Atlantic Ocean about 430 miles west of the Breton island of Ouessant, or Ushant, the battle arose out of an attempt by the British Channel fleet, under Admiral Earl Richard Howe, to intercept a grain convoy from the United States that was being escorted into Brest, France, by the French Atlantic fleet, under Rear Admiral Louis Thomas Villaret-Joyeuse. The next, Battle of the Nile, also called Battle of Aboukir Bay, was fought on August 1st, 1798). One of the greatest victories of the British Admiral Horatio Nelson, it was fought between the British and French fleets in Abu Qir Bay, near Alexandria, Egypt. Arguably the most famous naval conflict, almost of all time, was the Battle of Trafalgar, "which established British naval supremacy for more than 100 years" (Encyclopedia Britannica). Fought west of Cape Trafalgar, Spain, between Cádiz and the Strait of Gibraltar, a fleet of 33 ships (18 French and 15 Spanish) under Admiral Pierre de Villeneuve fought, and lost, against a British fleet of 27 ships commanded by Admiral Horatio Nelson. In 1764, Faden was apprenticed to the Fleet Street engraver James Wigley. By "1773 he was in partnership with the family of the recently deceased map maker Thomas Jefferys, at Jefferys's premises on the corner of St Martin's Lane. The partnership with the younger Jefferys was dissolved in 1776, the same year in which Faden became an active member of the Society of Civil Engineers (later the Smeatonian Society of Civil Engineers), the influential dining club of John Smeaton and other leading practical men of the day founded in 1771. "In the years of the American wars Faden came to prominence with maps and atlases of considerable historical note, some of the materials for which survive in the Library of Congress. He is glimpsed at this time as the ‘very accurate, industrious young man’ commended by Thomas Pownall. In 1783 his father's will enabled him to establish full control of the business. That same year he was appointed to ‘the place and quality of Geographer in Ordinary to his Majesty’. "Systematic in the acquisition of the best available maps, Faden developed the most competent cartographic service of the period. His was an international concern, in contact with map makers throughout Europe. He supplied government departments and commissioned fresh surveys. A gold medallist of the Society of Arts in 1796, his activities foreshadowed the emergence of national cartographic agencies. He brought out the first published Ordnance Survey map, An Entirely New & Accurate Survey of the County of Kent (1801). Some of his plates were likewise adopted as official Admiralty charts. When he moved at this time to l [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        A Narrative of the Transactions Personally Relating to the Unfortunate Lewis the Sixteenth, King of France and Navarre; from the Period of his Evasion from Paris, on the Twentieth of June, 1791, to his Death, on January, 1793.

      London: W. Locke, 1793. - Large 4to., (11 x 9 inches). 6 engraved plates, EXTRA-ILLUSTRATED with 47 engraved plates of views and portraits, and one 4-page facsimile letter (one or two marginal repairs). Contemporary full blue morocco gilt, with the supra libros of Louis XVI on the front cover, by Morrell, top edges gilt, others uncut (binding just touched at the edges). Being an account of the trials and tribulations of Louis XVI of France from his capture while trying to flee Paris, to his death by guillotine in 1793: "Lethargic in temperament, lacking political insight, and therefore incapable of appreciating the need to compromise, Louis continued to divert himself by hunting and with his personal hobbies of making locks and doing masonry. Louis’s resistance to popular demands was one of the causes of the forcible transfer of the royal family from Versailles to the Tuileries Palace in Paris on October 6. The outbreak of the war with Austria in April 1792, the suspected machinations of the queen’s "Austrian committee," and the publication of the manifesto by the Austrian commander, the duke of Brunswick, threatening the destruction of Paris if the safety of the royal family were again endangered, led to the capture of the Tuileries by the people of Paris and provincial militia on Aug. 10, 1792. It also led to the temporary suspension of the king’s powers by the Legislative Assembly and the proclamation of the First French Republic on September 21. In November, proof of Louis XVI’s secret dealings with Mirabeau and of his counterrevolutionary intrigues with the foreigners was found in a secret cupboard in the Tuileries. On December 3 it was decided that Louis, who together with his family had been imprisoned since August, should be brought to trial for treason. He himself appeared twice before the Convention (December 11 and 23). "Despite the last-minute efforts of the Girondins to save him, Citizen Capet, as he was then called, was found guilty by the National Convention and condemned to death on Jan. 18, 1793, by 387 votes (including 26 in favour of a debate on the possibility of postponing execution) to 334 (including 13 for a death sentence with the proviso that it should be suspended). When a final decision on the question of a respite was taken on January 19, Louis was condemned to death by 380 votes to 310. He was guillotined in the Place de la Révolution in Paris on Jan. 21, 1793. Nine months later his wife met the same fate. Louis XVI’s courage on June 20, 1792, when the royal palace was invaded by the Paris mob after his dismissal of the Girondin ministry, and his dignified bearing during his trial and at the moment of execution did something to redeem, but did not reestablish, his reputation" (Encyclopedia Britannica online).

Red silk ribbon markers, sewn-in. Front board of Volume I somewhat bowed. Hinges reinforced with Japanese paper. blank,[xxx],306, blank, BEAUTIFUL engravings, most by Irish painter and engraver Peter Mazell. The Preface is followed by Pennant's own phylogenetic method, dividing Quadrupeds into the Hoofed, the Digitated, the Pinnated, and the Winged. This is followed by a systematic index, a list of Mr. Pennant's works, and this by a Catalogue of Plates. Volume II continues, through the Quadruped "universe", then concludes as well with an index, followed by an "Index of the Names of Quadrupeds, in the Ancient Classic Writers, in the Works of M. De Buffon, and in Other Authors". A lovely set. In the preface, author Thomas Pennant explains that the work was "originally intended for private amusement", as as a sort of index to "any particular animal in the voluminous history of quadrupeds by the late Comte De Buffon". But because the work "swelled by degrees to a size beyond [his] first expectation,he was determined to bring it into its present form,and to usher into the world." Also in the preface, Pennant brings the reader up to date, by citing and commenting upon studies of the four-footed kingdom undertaken by his predecessors, amongst whom are Georges-Louis Leclerc, Comte de Buffon; John Ray; Jacob Theodore Klein; Mathurin Jacques Brisson; & Carl Linnaeus. Of Linnaeus, Pennant writes: "I reject his first division, which he calls PRIMATES, or Chiefs of the Creation; because my vanity will not suffer me to rank mankind with Apes, Monkies, Maucaucos, and Bats, the companions Linnaeus has allotted us even in his last system..." The Preface is followed by Pennant's own method, dividing Quadrupeds into the Hoofed, the Digitated, the Pinnated, and the Winged.

      Impreso en Lima: en la Imprenta Real de los Niños Expósitos. . 1793 - Small 4to., pp. [6] 175 [1] + errata leaf. Title-page verso with a classical quotation within typographical border. Woodcut pictorial headpiece and initial to p. 1. A very good copy, in beautiful contemporary polychrome printed wrappers (some peeling to spine). First edition. A very attractive copy - in a fine contemporary wrapper - of this official submission in a case involving arguments at the highest levels of society in colonial Peru. The volume includes discussion of a hacienda at Chuquitanta near Lima. Juan José de la Puente e Ibàñez de Segovia, fifth Marques de Corpa (1724-1796), a lawyer by training who was an honorary member of the Council of the Indies and a knight of the Order of Calatrava, was being sued for dowry money that he was said to owe his deceased daughter, who was called Constanza. The present plaintiff, a minor called Ana Maria Grimanesa, was having her claims to the dowry advanced - although she was not actually Constanza?s daughter (her father was Constanza?s husband but had subsequently married another woman and she was from that union). The senior Lima-born lawyer Francisco Arias de Saavedra (1746-1823) who was presenting the case, is stated also to be the young girl?s guardian. This suggests that by this time, Grimanesa?s father had died and the lawyer (as he is known to have done) had married her mother, thus becoming the plaintiff?s stepfather.

        Travels in India, during the Years 1780, 1781, 1782, & 1783.

      London: printed for the author, and sold by J. Edwards, 1793 - Quarto (286 × 230 mm). Contemporary marbled calf, raised bands to spine, foliate vignettes gilt to compartments between gilt rules, black morocco label, fillet and oak-leaf borders gilt to sides, sprinkled edges, green endpapers, bound purple silk page-marker. With the directions to the binder bound in. Joints and extremities rubbed, a few light scuffs and scattered faint craquelure to sides, tide-mark to top edge of pp. 92–3, the text unaffected, otherwise a few trivial spots or marks, Pass at Sicri Gully and Zananah plates transposed, very short closed tear to folding map stub. An excellent copy, the contents crisp and fresh and with no trace of the usual offsetting or browning. 14 engraved plates (9 of them views) by Medland, Byrne, Angus and others after Hodges, large folding engraved map of part of Bengal and Bihar. First edition, in a superior Regency binding; a second edition was published the following year. "The first professional landscape artist to visit India and please such tastes [for the picturesque and the sublime] was William Hodges (1744–1797). He went with a highly individual vision and style of painting which had been formed while he was official artist on Captain Cook's second voyage to the Pacific between 1772 and 1775. Hodges had served his apprenticeship with Richard Wilson and had learnt to paint landscapes in the classical tradition, producing calm wooded scenes lit by a soft glow, the foreground peopled with classical figures. With Captain Cook Hodges was suddenly jerked into observing nature in a completely different way "[His] First year in India was disappointing. Hodges's health was poor and the Second Mysore War (1780–84) against Haidar Ali was in progress. This made it impossible for him to explore the countryside of South India freely and he was confined to Madras and its immediate environs. On moving to Calcutta in February 1781, however, he was to travel far more widely through the generosity and patronage of the Governor-General, Warren Hastings, a man of broad culture. "During 1781 Hodges made two tours up-country with him during which he saw the ruins of many Muslim palaces, tombs and mosques. The next year he found a patron in Augustus Cleveland, a liberal administrator stationed at Bhagalpur in Bihar. Touring with him Hodges saw a very different India – the forested tracts inhabited by an aboriginal people, the Paharias. During 1783 he made a long expedition up-country to join Major Brown who was heading a diplomatic embassy to the Mughal Emperor. Hodges was now able to see the great Mughal monuments at Agra and Sikandra. He returned through Central India to Calcutta via Lucknow and left India in November 1783" (Archer & Lightbown, India Observed: India as viewed by British Artists 1760–1860, Victoria and Albert Museum 1982, pp. 8–9).

        The Experienced English Housekeeper, for the use and ease of ladies, housekeepers, cooks, etc. Written purely from practice; dedicated to the Hon. Lady Elizabeth Warburton, whom the author lately served as housekeeper. Consisting of several hundred original receipts, most of which never appeared in print. A new edition. In which are inserted some celebrated receipts by other modern authors.

      London: printed for A. Millar, W. Law, and R. Cater, 1793 - Octavo (219 x 125 mm). Contemporary marbled calf, rebacked, black label, spine gilt to compartments. A few instances of foxing and small worm hole at foot of final couple of signatures, not affecting text. An attractive, internally clean copy. Engraved portrait frontispiece and 3 plates, of which 2 are folding. A later edition of this popular Georgian-era cookery book, first published in Manchester in 1769; there were some twenty further editions before the turn of the 19th century, of which only twelve were authorised. Elizabeth Raffald (1733–1781) was born in Doncaster and spent some fifteen years in the service of Lady Elizabeth Warburton at Arley Hall, Cheshire, before marrying her employer's gardener. "A shrewd, tactful, and strong-willed woman, with a good knowledge of French and an active concern for the poor" (ODNB), she later opened her own shop in Manchester, first in Fennell Street, then on Exchange Alley, from where she ran a cookery school and probably the city's first register office for servants. When Baldwin, the London-based publisher of the first edition, suggested altering certain northern expressions in her work, Raffald is meant to have replied, "What I have written I proposed to write at the time; it was written deliberately, and I cannot admit to any alteration". Loosely inserted in this copy is a contemporary manuscript recipe to make elderberry wine, pleasing evidence of the book being used. Bitting p. 387 for the second edition; Cagle 944-953 for various other editions; ESTC T195825.

        An Historical Journal of the Transactions at Port Jackson and Norfolk Island,

Ball; and the Voyages from the first Sailing of the Sirius in 1787, to the Return of that Ship's Company to England in 1792. Quarto (300 × 240 mm). Contemporary speckled calf sometime rebacked to style, red morocco label, gilt rope-twist border on sides. Fine engraved portrait frontispiece of Hunter by R. Dighton after D. Orme, engraved vignette title, 13 engraved plates (one of an aboriginal family, engraved by William Blake), 2 large folding engraved maps. A little occasional foxing, chiefly to the margins of the plates, a little offsetting from the plates. A very good copy. First edition, a tall copy retaining the date at the foot of the title page which is usually found trimmed. John Hunter (1737-1821) was "vice-admiral and governor of New South Wales [1795-1800] in succession to Governor Phillip, went out as second-in-commandon the Sirius in the first convict fleet. He was an experienced and scientific navigator. With his encouragement, the exploration of the coastline of Australia made rapid progress, and the early discoveries of Flinders and Bass owe much to him" (Hill). "Hunter gives an excellent account of many activities, particularly exploration and the settlement at Norfolk Island, which are treated more cursorily by the other First Fleet chroniclers. The engraved plates and maps, many of the latter from original cartography by Hunter, Dayes and Bradley, are very fine. The plates include the well-known 'View of the Settlement at Sydney Cove, Port Jackson, 20th August 1788' (the first published engraving of Sydney) and P. G. King's 'A Family of New South Wales [engraved by Blake]'" (Hordern House, Australiana 1784–1830, p. 67).

Plates include the first published illustration of the new settlement ('View of the settlement on Sydney Cove', after a sketch by the author), and 'A family of New South Wales', engraved by William Blake after a drawing by Philip Gidley King.

        An Historical Journal of the Transactions at Port Jackson and Norfolk Island, with the Discoveries which have been made in New South Wales and in the Southern Ocean since the Publication of Philip's Voyage, compiled from the Official Papers; Including the Journals of Governors Phillip and King, and of Lieut. Ball; and the Voyages from the first Sailing of the Sirius in 1787, to the Return of that Ship's Company to England in 1792.

      London: Printed for John Stockdale, 1793 - Quarto (300 × 240 mm). Contemporary speckled calf sometime rebacked to style, red morocco label, gilt rope-twist border on sides. A little occasional foxing, chiefly to the margins of the plates, a little offsetting from the plates. A very good copy. Fine engraved portrait frontispiece of Hunter by R. Dighton after D. Orme, engraved vignette title, 13 engraved plates (one of an aboriginal family, engraved by William Blake), 2 large folding engraved maps. First edition, a tall copy retaining the date at the foot of the title page which is usually found trimmed. John Hunter (1737-1821) was "vice-admiral and governor of New South Wales [1795-1800] in succession to Governor Phillip, went out as second-in-commandon the Sirius in the first convict fleet. He was an experienced and scientific navigator. With his encouragement, the exploration of the coastline of Australia made rapid progress, and the early discoveries of Flinders and Bass owe much to him" (Hill). "Hunter gives an excellent account of many activities, particularly exploration and the settlement at Norfolk Island, which are treated more cursorily by the other First Fleet chroniclers. The engraved plates and maps, many of the latter from original cartography by Hunter, Dayes and Bradley, are very fine. The plates include the well-known 'View of the Settlement at Sydney Cove, Port Jackson, 20th August 1788' (the first published engraving of Sydney) and P. G. King's 'A Family of New South Wales [engraved by Blake]'" (Hordern House, Australiana 1784–1830, p. 67).

        LIFE OF SAMUEL JOHNSON Comprehending an Account of his Studies and Numerous Works, etc

      London: Printed by Henry Baldwin for Charles Dilly, 1793. 3 volumes. First octavo edition, revised and augmented by Boswell, with the corrections, cancels, and misprints. This copy also with the "Additions received after the Second Edition was printed" (pp. *i-*xxii), "A Chronological Catalogue of the Prose Works of Samuel Johnson, LL.D" which is the first attempt at a Johnson bibliography (pp. *xxiii- *xxxi), and thirteen letters to Bennet Langton and one to the Earl of Bute as well as the first issuance of the Dialogue between Dr. Johnson and Mrs. Knowles printed by J. and A. Arch, London, and not called for in the first edition of the octavo issue. Most of this material was issued here for the first time and was not in the first edition quarto. Engraved portrait frontispiece, after the painting by Sir Joshua Reynolds. Also with the folding 'Round Robin' plate and a folding plate of with a facsimile of Dr. Johnson's handwriting. 8vo, very handsomely bound in original period tree calf, the spines gilt tooled in compartments decorated with a central gilt ornamental device and surrounded by gilt borders, divided into six compartments separated by gilt decorated bands, two compartments with contrasting red and black morocco labels gilt lettered and decorated. With the fine engraved armorial bookplate of Sir Henry Kenyon Stephenson, 1st Baronet, Lord Mayor of Sheffield and the first Member of Parliament for the Sheffield Park constituency. portrait, title,xviii, [i],xviii- xxxix, [i], xxxvi, 603; 634; 711; 8 pp. A very good and handsome copy sometime long ago sympathetically restored at the backs in sympathetic fashion, a bit of wear to the tips but a very pleasing copy and an honest one very well preserved. IMPORTANT PRINTING IN CONTEMPORARY TREE CALF GILT. The first 8vo edition of what is perhaps the greatest biography ever written in the English language, in a fine contemporary binding. The "chronological catalogue of the prose works of Samuel Johnson" appears in this edition for the first time. This set with the alphabetical table of contents before the text rather than at the end of volume 3, as is often the case and with the scarce leaf of corrections and additions following the contents. Celebrated for its intimacy and vividness, Boswell's Life of Johnson "is one of the best books in the world. It is assuredly a great, very great work. Homer is not more decidedly the first of heroic Poets,--Shakespeare is not more decidedly the first of Dramatists,--Demosthenes is not more decidedly the first of Orators, than Boswell is the first of Biographers..." (Macauley, in the Edinburgh Review, 1831). Boswell learned a great deal about the art of biography from his subject, and brought to his task boundless curiosity, persistence, and zest. Boswell had been collecting material for this work since his first interview with Johnson in 1763, and was confident that his kind of biography, "which gives not only a History of Johnson's visible progress through the world, and of his publications, but a view of his mind in his letters and conversations, is the most perfect that can be conceived, and will be more of a Life than any work that has ever yet appeared.

        Twenty-Four Picturesque Scenes, chiefly in the Highlands of Scotland]

      1793 - Oblong Folio (230 x 290mm)., 24 leaves of hand-coloured engraved plates by Francis Jukes from original drawings by William Ashmore. Contemporary calf backed marbled boards, spine lettered in gilt (a little rubbed at the edges, some slight scuffing to the head of the spine). Perth: R. Morison & Son, Dec^r^, A rare suit of plates - ?the most ambitious undertaking in terms of topographical prints marketed by a provincial press? - intended to accompany Robert Heron's Observations made in a Journey through the western counties in Scotland (Perth, 1793). Scotch Views by William Ashmore, a drawing master at the Perth Academy, was a subscription venture published in 1793. It comprised not only the most ambitious undertaking in terms of topographical prints marketed by a provincial press, but it also related clearly to the market for print collec- tors to which the Morisons? quarto edition of The Seasons had appealed. The aquatint engravings by Francis Jukes were executed in oval format, the format Gilpin had used for his ?Views,? and ? nished in a style of uncommon elegance, either for the Cabinet, the Optical Pillar, or Fur- niture.? The prints were suitable for collectors? cabinets and portfolios but could also be used for display and projection via an optical device that became increasingly fashionable among print collectors. Morison?s Scotch Views was available at ?One Guinea proof or coloured sets? and at ?15s. plain.? The colored versions would have been created through the use of watercolors, and an advertisement stated that the plates were ?Tinted with Great Taste.? ?The most elegant and picturesque collection of Views in Scotland yet offered to the public, Mr Jukes, the engraver, has got 250 impressions carefully printed under his own eye, on an elegant wove Royal paper of Whatman?s. A few of these first impressions are sent to Scotland, the greater number being retained in London; and for these, subscriptions are now opened at One Guinea per set? (Caledonian Mercury, 3 March 1794). ?Original drawings by Mr Ashmore, Perth; engraved in Acquatints by Mr. Jukes, London; in the manner of Mr. Gilpin's Views.

        A Treatise on the Dieases of Children, With General Directions for the Management of Infants from the Birth 2vols in 1. POLIO

      T Dobson, Phildelphia 1793 - Bound in contemporary full leather, spine gilt in compartments with red label. Worn to edges. Boards detached. One of the earliest and important Pediatric publications. xx, 404pp, v. Very slightly browned to text. Underwood was born in Surrey, England. He studied surgery and midwifery, a discipline that included pediatrics as well as obstetrics, in London and Paris. He was highly regarded as a man-midwife and attended prominent women of the day, including the daughter-in-law of King George III. Underwood oversaw a total of seven editions of his Treatise in his long lifetime, with each successive version written more for the medical profession than for the lay person. One of the best eighteenth-century English works on pediatrics, it remained a standard text for over 60 years. In addition to a discussion of various diseases, Underwood includes an extensive section on the general care of infants. His baby formula, consisting of boiled cow’s milk and barley water, is the era’s closest imitation of mother’s milk. Underwood makes clear his preference for mother’s milk. The second edition is notable for including the first account of polio in a section entitled - Debility of the Lower Extremities. Size: 8vo [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        De l'impot progressif et du morcellement des patrimoines . relié avec 6 textes d'économie politique de l'époque révolutionnaire.

      Paris, Dupont 1793 - In-8° relié demi-chagrin havane XIX° 103 p., une planche hors-texte dépliante à laquelle sont consacrées 5 pages d'explications "Croisement synthétique de l'impôt proportionnel et l'impot progressif. Adjoint à la commission des poids et mesures de Paris, employé au cadastre, il prend part aux discussions concernant les normes de format de papier : en effet, la création, au début de la Révolution française, d'un impôt sur la propriété foncière rendait nécessaire l'établissement d'un cadastre, projet de grande envergure qui demandait un vaste effort de normalisation. Jollivet expose le 21 août 1792 à l'Assemblée Nationale les raisons qui justifient le recours à un format de papier normalisé. « Il devient membre de la commission extraordinaire des finances près la Convention nationale le 19 ventôse suivant (9 mars 1795), conservateur général des hypothèques le 1er thermidor de la même année (19 juillet 1795), enfin membre de la commission extraordinaire des négociants de la République convoqués par le ministre des Finances le 22 frimaire an V. "Jean-Baptiste Jollivet, ancien député à l'Assemblée législative et futur préfet d'Empire, qui, en l'An III, signe tantôt Baralère tantôt Baraly, est l'un des publicistes les plus actifs et les plus intelligents de Thermidor, un spécialiste de l'adaptation aux fluctuations politiques. De la veine anti-cléricale à l'ardeur anti-girondine, les textes de Jollivet sont caractérisés par la langue de bois populiste qui a résisté aux différents régimes et constitue un élément de continuité du discours révolutionnaire."

        Critik der Urtheilskraft

      Lagarde, Berlin 1793 - In 8? (mm 200x110); pagg. LX, (2), 482. Mezza pelle con angoli coeva, titolo impresso in oro su tassello al dorso, scomparti e fregi dorati, tagli rossi. Testo in carattere gotico. Seconda edizione. La "Critica del Giudizio" Ë il tentativo di mediare il mondo fenomenico con il mondo noumenico. Vi Ë dunque una terza facolt? intermedia fra l'intelletto (facolt? conoscitiva teoretica) e la ragione (facolt? pratica): il giudizio, collegato al "sentimento puro"."La Critica del Giudizio" sembra palesare il tentativo di Kant, di poter sanare quelle contraddizioni che emergevano forti dalle precedenti "Critica della ragion pratica" in opposizione con le conclusioni della "Critica della ragion pura". Kant sperimenta per certi versi in quest'opera una nuova terminologia, un opera per certi versi oscura, che si presta a varie interpretazioni. Luk?cs, un importante pensatore del Novecento, ha affermato che tutta l'estetica possibile per l'umanit? Ë contenuta nella "Critica del giudizio", ma si tratter? di dipanarla nei tempi venturi: si dovr? sempre attingere a quest'opera se si vorr? considerare i problemi della bellezza e del finalismo della natura.Ottimo esemplare marginoso, su carta vergellata, in bella impressione. Antica nota manoscritta alla guardia ant. Timbrino di appartenenza all'interno dei piatti. Lievi tracce d'uso a spigoli e cuffie. filosofia.
