Adam Smith
London: A. Strahan and T. Cadell, 1793-01-01. 7th. Hardcover. Good. 2 volume set. Volumes 1 & 2 only. Seventh edition. Rebound in modern brown cloth. (Lacking volume 3). University library stamps on end pages. ESTC T95380; Goldsmiths 15565; Printing and the Mind of Man 221. Sabin 82303.<br> "The history of economic theory up to the end of the nineteenth century consists of two parts: the mercantilist phase which was based not so much on a doctrine as on a system of practice which grew out of social conditions; and the second phase which saw the development of the theory that the individual had the right to be unimpeded in the exercise of economic activity. While it cannot be said that Smith invented the latter theory ... his work is the first major expression of it. He begins with the thought that labour is the source from which a nation derives what is necessary to it. The improvement of the division of labour is the measure of productivity and in it lies the human propensity to barter and exchange ... From the working of the economy, Smith passes to its matter 'stock' which compasses all that man owns either for his own consumption or for the return which it brings him. The Wealth of Nations ends with a history of economic development, a definitive onslaught on the mercantile system, and some prophetic speculations on the limits of economic control ... The certainty of its criticism and its grasp of human nature have made it the first and greatest classic of modern economic thought." (Printing and the Mind of Man).

FICHTE, Johann Gottlieb.
[Danzig: no publisher stated], 1793. [Danzig: no publisher stated],, 1793. Erster Theil. Zur Beurtheilung ihrer Rechtmässigkeit. 2 parts in 1 small octavo volume (160 x 94 mm). Original interim drab boards, paper spine label lettered by hand in ink, red edges. Complete with the errata leaf. Woodcut diagram to p. 158 of part I. Contemporary ornate signature to pastedown and note of author on front free endpaper. Extremities lightly rubbed, lettering to spine label partly eroded, small ink splash to title, occasional light spotting and a few leaves lightly browned. A very good copy. First edition, parts I & II, all published, of Fichte's defence of the French Revolution. From the library of the German philosopher David Strauss, with his ownership signature dated 1832 to the front free endpaper. Strauss is best known for his Das Leben Jesu, published in 1835, a highly controversial but also painstakingly scholarly investigation of the events of Christ's life as told in the gospels, in which he found them to be not historical, but mythological - the wished-for fulfilment of Old Testament prophecies. Fichte published his justification of the French Revolution shortly before his appointment to the University of Jena, and it was probably to preserve this position that he never published the third part. Fichte's analysis of the necessity of rebellion against unjust rulers anticipates his nationalist speeches to the German nation delivered in 1807-8, by which point he had become disillusioned with the Revolution under Napoleon, and felt that Germany was best placed to take the prin … [Click Below for Full Description]

BLACKSTONE, William
1793. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. Famous edition from Printing and the Mind of Man "All presumptive evidence of felony should be admitted cautiously; for the law holds it better that ten guilty persons escape, than that one innocent party suffer." ― William Blackstone [Blackstone's formulation] An incredible, valuable edition of William Blackstone's 'Commentaries on the Laws of England.' According to Lowndes, "Of these Commentaries Sir William Jones observed, 'they are the most correct and beautiful outline that ever was exhibited in any human science.'" This edition is also the first edition to include 13 portraits of English judges, and the last that included edits by Blackstone himself. The Commentaries are considered the most important pre-Revolution source of common and civil law in the United States. This book is famous for being used as the key to Benedict Arnold's book cipher during the American Revolution. According to the Printing and the Mind of Man: "Blackstone's great work on the laws of England is the extreme example of justification of an existing state of affairs by virtue of its history...Until the Commentaries, the ordinary Englishman had viewed the law as a vast, unintelligible and unfriendly machine; nothing but trouble, even danger, was to be expected from contact with it. Blackstone's great achievement was to popularize the law and the traditions which had influenced its formation. He has been accused of playing to the gallery, of flattering the national vice of complacency with existing inst … [Click Below for Full Description]

[William Frederick Martyn] William Fordyce Mavor
London: Harrison and Co, 1793. With thirteen engraved plates of views, including a frontispiece and thirteen folding maps. Maps are by 18th century geographer J. Bayly, who also created the singularly published maps, a new map of Poland, a new map of the West Indies, and a new world map. William Fordyce Mavor was a compiler of educational works, who occasionally wrote under the pseudonym William Frederick Martyn. In 1808 Mavor was elected mayor of Woodstock, and served the office ten times. However his success came from his work on educational books, many of which, particularly 'The English Spelling Book,' 1801, passed through numerous editions. He also invented a system of shorthand, which he explained in a treatise entitled 'Universal Stenography'. With a red and black title page. Volume two of the original two, focusing on Europe and the European islands. In contemporary calf binding. Externally, somewhat rubbed with wear to the boards and extremities. Shelfwear to the head and tail of spine. Front board is held by the cords only and rear joint is starting. Copperplate ink inscriptions to the endpapers.

Washington, George]
Philadelphia: Printed by Childs and Swaine, 1793. 102,[1]pp. Dbd. Light wear at edges. Contemporary ownership inscription on titlepage. Light foxing and tanning throughout, occasional light dampstaining at fore-edge. Good plus. Untrimmed. Howes describes this official version of the Gen�t affair as the first of many presidential messages to Congress. In 1793 the U.S. entered a serious diplomatic quandary with the arrival of Citizen Gen�t, minister of the French Republic. Soon after landing on American soil Gen�t proceeded to foment the philosophy of the French Revolution and interfere in American politics in a most undiplomatic manner. This report by Washington to Congress is largely made up of the correspondence of Thomas Jefferson, who at the time was Secretary of State. While some copies of the report were originally issued and bound with the "Papers" relative to Great Britain and the "French originals" referred to in the title, the present copy was issued with the report alone. The front wrapper bears the contemporary ownership inscription of New Yorker James M. Hughes, an officer in the Continental Army during the Revolution and a staunch Antifederalist during the New York debates and convention on the ratification of the Constitution, who corresponded with Alexander Hamilton and John Adams.

Bailleux is identified on the title as "Md. de Musique Ordinaire du Roi", with the address "Rue St. Honoré à la Règle d'Or." Round handstamp of "Pension Delafosse-Suresnes" to all title pages. Slightly browned, soiled, and foxed, especially title pages; stain to publisher's catalogue of Violino primo part. A very good copy overall. An early edition, published in the same year as first. Benton 3589. RISM P3359 (3 copies, 2 of which are in the U.S., at the University of California, Berkeley, and the University of Iowa). Benton dates the composition of the six quartets to 1792 and tentatively dates the present edition to 1792-1805. Bailleux, however, dropped the "A la Règle d'Or" and the reference to the king from his imprint after 1793, and "rue St-Honoré" was renamed (see Devriès-Lesure I, p. 19). The publisher's catalogue is almost identical with that in the Johansson facsimile 11 (?1786), with some later additions under "Simphonies" and "Quatuors" only; it is thus the latest Bailleux catalogue known to date.

PAINE. THOMAS. (Hodgson. E.).
J. S. Jordan. London. 1793. SECOND EDITION, CORRECTED. Small 4o.(8.5 x 5.2 inches). 3-143pp. Lacking the half title. Error in the pagination with page numbers 54/55 omitted but the text is complete. Most pages lightly browned, a bit darker to the first and last few leaves but overall a very good copy in a recent leather binding of full dark brown sprinkled calf. Double blind ruled borders on boards. Spine with gilt rules and decoration either side of a black calf label, lettered in gilt. ----- Report of the trial held in Great Britain while Paine was in self-exile in France. The accusation was that Paine; wishing and intending mischief, did, on the 16th of February, 1791, wickedly, falsely, maliciously, scandalously, and seditiously publish a certain book, called Second Part of Rights of Man, signed Thomas Paine, containing many false, wicked, scandalous, malicious and seditious assertions. --- The prosecution did not even have to rebut Mr. Erskine's arguments; the jury informed the judge they had already decided Paine was guilty. The French response to the trial was to make a national hero of Paine and to elevate him to the status of a government official.

Berlin, August Mylius, 1783-1793. Das berühmte, von Moritz herausgegebene Magazin war die erste Zeitschrift für Psychologie als einer sich von der Philosophie emanzipierenden Einzelwissenschaft. "Nach dem Vorschlag des Herrn Moses Mendelssohn werde ich die Eintheilung in der Arzneiwissenschaft auf die Erfahrungsseelenkunde anzuwenden suchen, und die Aufsätze in diesem Magazin unter die Rubriken der Seelennaturkunde, Seelenkrankheitskunde, Seelenzeichenkunde, Seelendiätetik usw. zuordnen" (Einleitung). Zu den genannten Themen sind mit Erstdrucken vertreten: Moses Mendelssohn, Marcus Herz, Spazier, Pockels, Maimon, Lazarus Bendavid, Aaron Wolfsohn, Voss u. a. Bedeutend ist die Zeitschrift auch durch die zahlreichen biographischen Beiträge, besonders aber durch bedeutende autobiographische Beiträge. Gleich im ersten Band steuert Moritz "Erinnerungen aus den frühesten Jahren der Kindheit" bei, vielfach wird auf wichtige Autobiographien des 16.-18. Jahrhunderts hingewiesen und somit der Versuch unternommen, eine psychologische Tradition herzustellen. Es ist sehr interessant, dass u. a. die Autobiographie Adam Bernds ("Eigene Lebensbeschreibung", Leipzig 1738) auszugsweise abgedruckt ist, die als früheste Beschreibung des Krankheitsverlaufs einer Depression gilt. Moritz hat offenbar Bernd als einen Vorläufer empfunden, der damit auch auf den "Anton Reiser" als Vorbild wirkt. Besonders sind zwei anonyme Autobiographien hervorzuheben, die "Geschichte meiner Irrungen" in Band 2 und die "Bekenntnisse A. J.

Internally very fresh and clean. A very nice, clean, and fresh copy. Woodcut vignettes to all title-pages. (8), CLXXII, 258; 245, (1); 238 pp. ¶ Extremely scarce first edition of Hausius' classic on the critical philosophy of Kant, which constitutes the first collection of materials pertaining to the reception of Kant's philosophy, a work of utmost importance to Kant scholarship and to establishing the entire Critical tradition. The work, which appeared in the same year as Kant's third and final Critique, constitutes an invaluable source for anyone interested in the early development of critical philosophy, "a work which is as valuable as it is rare." (Adickes)."The Critique of Pure Reason by Immanuel Kant (1724-1804) is without question one of the landmarks of the entire history of Western philosophy, comparable in its importance and influence to only a handful of other works such as Plato's Republic, Aristotle's organon of logical works, and Descartes's Meditations on First Philosophy. The Critique was first published in 1781, after a decade of intensive preparation,1 and within a few years became the center of attention in German philosophy,and shortly after that in other European countries with advanced philosophical culture such as Britain and France as well.2 - 2: As early as 1793, Karl Gottlob Hausius was able to publish a three-part collection of Materialen zur Geschichte der critischen Philosophi … [Click Below for Full Description]

Fischer). Aufgrund seiner Übersetzung wurde Rebmann die Niederlassung in Dessau verwehrt. Der Druck ist entweder zur Jahreswende oder Anfang 1794 erschienen; es existiert eine Druckvariante mit 2 Bl., 44 Seiten. Schon am 28.
