        Critik der reinen Vernunft.

      Riga, Johann Friedrich Hartknoch, 1794.. Vierte Auflage. 8°. Collation: Titel, XLIV, Errata-Blatt, 8 nn. Seiten Inhaltsverzeichnis, 884 Seiten Text, Fortsetzung des Errata-Blattes. Hardcover. Originaler Pappband mit Rückenschildchen. Der schlichte Einband etwas stärker berieben. Allerdings in sehr firmer, guter Erhaltung. Besonders der Zustand des Bucblockes ist hervorzuheben. Text sehr sauber - Stockfleckenfreies Exemplar ! Rot kolorierter Schnitt. / Original Hardcoverbinding. Binding rubbed but tight and especially the text very clean and without any foxing. Includes both errata-leaves.. Die Kritik der reinen Vernunft (im Original: "Critik der reinen Vernunft") ist das erkenntnistheoretische Hauptwerk des Philosophen Immanuel Kant, in dem er auch den Grundriss für seine Transzendentalphilosophie liefert. Sie kennzeichnet einen Wendepunkt in der Philosophiegeschichte und den Beginn der modernen Philosophie. Der Königsberger Philosoph schrieb die Kritik der reinen Vernunft als erste seiner drei "Kritiken". Es folgten die Kritik der praktischen Vernunft und die Kritik der Urteilskraft. An die Kritik der reinen Vernunft schließen zudem die Prolegomena von 1783 an. Die Kritik der reinen Vernunft erschien in deutscher Sprache in erster Auflage (A) im Jahr 1781 bei Johann Friedrich Hartknoch. Eine zweite Auflage (B), in Abschnitten wesentlich verändert und erweitert, kam 1787 heraus. In den 1790er Jahren erschienen weitere Fassungen, die sich aber nur unwesentlich von der zweiten Auflage unterschieden. (Wikipedia) The Critique of Pure Reason (German: Kritik der reinen Vernunft ) by Immanuel Kant, first published in 1781, second edition 1787, is considered one of the most influential works in the history of philosophy. Also referred to as Kant's "first critique," it was followed by the Critique of Practical Reason and the Critique of Judgement. In the last section of the introduction (section VII: Idea and Division of a Particular Science, under the Name of a Critique of Pure Reason) Kant states that "... If this Critique itself does not assume the title of transcendental philosophy, it is only because, to be a complete system, it ought to contain a full analysis of all human knowledge a priori." Before the time of Kant, it was generally held that whatever knowledge was a priori must be of the nature of an analytic judgment, that is, what is stated in the predicate must already be present in the subject and it is therefore, independent of experience (e.g., "An intelligent man is intelligent" or "An intelligent man is a man"). In either case, the judgment is analytic because it is arrived at by analyzing the subject. Before the time of Kant, it was thought that all judgments of which we could be certain a priori were of this kind: that in all of them there was a predicate which was only part of the subject of which it was asserted. If this were so, we would be involved in a contradiction every time we would try to deny anything that could be known a priori (e. g., "An intelligent man is not intelligent" or "An intelligent man is not a man"). Thus according to the philosophers before Kant, the Law of contradiction is sufficient to establish all a priori knowledge. (Wikipedia)

        The JEW: A Comedy. Performed at the Theatre-Royal, Drury-Lane

      London:: Printed fro C. Dilly, In the Poultry,. 1794.. 8vo. 1st edition thus, and one of 2 authorized editions this first year of publication. [4], 75, [1] pp. Last page the Epilogue.. Disbound, with leather spine remnants.. B2v & B3r with a bit of printer misprinting [no text missing]. A VG. copy.. Cumberland was a civil servant in the Board of Trade and Plantations as well as a prolific playwrite thought to have more than fifty plays to his credit. & & This work, one of his more famous, only a "comedy" strictly in the "sentimental" sense common to the time. The play memorable for its main character, Sheva, a wealthy Jewish usurer who, by the end of the convoluted plot, has shown himself to be "the widow&#39;s friend, the orphan&#39;s father, the poor man&#39;s protector, the universal philanthropist." Such a sympathetic depiction of a Jew was rare, if not unprecedented, in the history of the English stage. "The benevolent design of the author appears to have been to rescue an injured and persecuted race of men from the general reproach which has fallen upon them, by exhibiting one of that body as uniting with the peculiarities of his sect eminent virtues." (The Analytical Review). & & Perhaps even more surprising was the work&#39;s success with audiences and critics alike; it re-established Cumberland&#39;s career after many years of flops. The play was hugely popular throughout Great Britain and America, and was performed to acclaim in Germany and Paris. However, slightly tarnishing Cumberland&#39;s humanitarianism was his subsequent bitterness over the lack of "gratitude" (read: emoluments) rendered him by the Jewish community for his efforts on their behalf. "They gave me nothing;" he is reported to have said, "and to tell you the truth I am glad of it; for if they had, in all probability, I should have been indicted for receiving stolen goods." & & Notoriously self-important and thin-skinned, Cumberland was, in 1779, immortalized by Sheridan as the character Sir Fretful Plagiary in The Critic.

      London: Printed for John Walker, 1794-96. 4 vols., 8vo, (vol. 1) eng. t/p and port. frontis., 444, (8); eng. t/p, 431, (5); eng. t/p, 495, (6); eng. t/p, 500, (7)pp. Original drab blue boards, white paper backstrips, orange printed labels, a very fine set in original condition (vol. IV with a minor stain on upper cover and a slight tear in the paper backstrip). First collected edition, issued in three volumes (as stated on the first three title-pages) with a supplementary fourth volume here present with an amended title-page. ÒWolcot (1738-1819) was immensely popular for two decades, and up to his death was a well-known and frequently visited figure in literary and artistic circles. Exuberantly vituperative in print as Peter Pindar, Wolcot was of an attractive and sympathetic character, generous to friends and a welcome guest, even in great houses such as Fonthill, where he allayed any anxieties his host William Beckford had by his charming behaviour in a party which included Nelson and Emma Hamilton.Ó He knew or was known to almost every person of note in his time, although today he is virtually unheard of.

        The JEW: A Comedy. Performed at the Theatre-Royal, Drury-Lane.

      Printed fro C. Dilly, In the Poultry,, London: 1794 - Cumberland was a civil servant in the Board of Trade and Plantations as well as a prolific playwrite thought to have more than fifty plays to his credit. This work, one of his more famous, only a "comedy" strictly in the "sentimental" sense common to the time. The play memorable for its main character, Sheva, a wealthy Jewish usurer who, by the end of the convoluted plot, has shown himself to be "the widow's friend, the orphan's father, the poor man's protector, the universal philanthropist." Such a sympathetic depiction of a Jew was rare, if not unprecedented, in the history of the English stage. "The benevolent design of the author appears to have been to rescue an injured and persecuted race of men from the general reproach which has fallen upon them, by exhibiting one of that body as uniting with the peculiarities of his sect eminent virtues." (The Analytical Review). Perhaps even more surprising was the work's success with audiences and critics alike; it re-established Cumberland's career after many years of flops. The play was hugely popular throughout Great Britain and America, and was performed to acclaim in Germany and Paris. However, slightly tarnishing Cumberland's humanitarianism was his subsequent bitterness over the lack of "gratitude" (read: emoluments) rendered him by the Jewish community for his efforts on their behalf. "They gave me nothing;" he is reported to have said, "and to tell you the truth I am glad of it; for if they had, in all probability, I should have been indicted for receiving stolen goods." Notoriously self-important and thin-skinned, Cumberland was, in 1779, immortalized by Sheridan as the character Sir Fretful Plagiary in The Critic.

        THE SEASONS

      London: Printed for Iohn Stockdale, 1794. Hardcover. Quintessential Edwards Fore-Edge Painting. 165 x 98 mm (6 1/2 x 3 7/8"). xix, [i], 256, [32] pp. (apparently published without a printed title). Once extremely pretty and still charming contemporary vellum in the style of--and probably by--Edwards of Halifax, covers with frame formed by plain and decorative gilt rules, including a Greek key roll on a painted band of blue and an elegant cresting border incorporating an undulant beaded roll and leafy garlands, this frame enclosing a center panel with a floral tool pointing diagonally inward at each corner, flat spine ornately gilt in compartments with a lyre centerpiece crossed with trumpets and enclosed by a lozenge of small tools and drawer-handle cornerpieces, title labelling on a blue wash, gilt turn-ins, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. WITH A PLEASING FORE-EDGE PAINTING OF AN ENGLISH LANDSCAPE containing typical Edwards features (see below). With extra engraved title page (featuring oval portrait of Thomson) and 14 engraved plates after Thomas Stothard, as called for. Front pastedown with heraldic bookplate bearing the motto "Confido." Front flyleaf with early(?) 19th century ink inscription to J. B. Macbride from F. Pickford. Vellum slightly soiled, front board a little splayed, blue paint mostly rubbed off the titling label and a bit faint in a couple of small spots in the cover border (spine gilt also somewhat dulled or lost), but the original unsophisticated binding solid and still retaining much of its appeal as an Edwards example, and, most importantly, with the painting in excellent state. Title page and frontispiece a little foxed, minor offsetting from plates, other trivial imperfections, but a very pleasing copy internally, the leaves clean and fresh. In terms of binding design, artistic representation, and the work chosen for special treatment, this is a quintessential example of a fore-edge painting done by its foremost exponent and practitioner. The Edwards of Halifax bindery was founded by William Edwards (1723-1808) and continued by several of his brothers, half-brothers, and sons (by far the most important of the sons being Thomas, who lived from 1762-1834). This famous firm produced a number of important innovations in binding design, the most significant being the idea of concealing a painting under the gilt of the fore edge. This hidden treasure could be revealed, once the edge was fanned out, as a special surprise element of the volumes they bound--typically in Etruscan calf, or, as here, in vellum decorated with gilt and blue wash. In its content and style, the present fore-edge painting is so typical of the scenes rendered by the Edwards workshop that we feel confident in asserting that the edge must have been decorated at or near the time of the binding. As is the case in the majority of painted Edwards scenes, there is a body of water to the right and some important structure to the left (this is often a stately home, but sometimes--as here--is part of a ruined church or castle). The water is spanned by an arched stone bridge (another frequent visual ingredient). Clusters of leafy trees complete the picture, and a fair blue sky with puffy clouds reigns over the entire tranquil setting. The soft colors used, primarily blues, greens, and grays, are also typcial of the Edwards palette. First published in 1730, "The Seasons" was considered in its day to be the most influential poem in blank verse between Milton and the Romantics. The poem finds beauty in the wild places, as well as the cultivated fields, and sees in nature the reflection of the creator&#39;s bounty. The poem was incredibly popular, found in a vast number of English homes, whether cottages or castles, and was a popular choice for embellishment with fore-edge paintings.

        A New and Correct Map of Scotland or North Britain with all the Post and Military Roads, Divisions, &c

      London: Sayer, 1794. unbound. Map, in two sheets. Copper plate engraving with original outline hand color. Each image measures 24.25" x 21.25". This large-scale wall map of Scotland depicts the country in intricate detail. Based on the work of Marcus Armstrong, this two-part map has a particular focus on military and post roads. Hand-colored lines divide and subdivide shires, mountains are depicted pictorially, and bodies of water such as lochs and firths are all labeled. At the upper right is a large inset of the "The Islands of Shetland or Zetland." The upper left corner contains a decorative title cartouche, and the map&#39;s lower left contains a key of "Distances of the Principal Stages on the Great Roads Leading from Edinburgh." The map is in good condition with some chips and stains in the margins . Minor offsetting throughout. Robert Laurie (c. 1755 - 1836) and James Whittle (1757-1818) were London-based map and atlas publishers active in the late 18th and early 19th century. Their firm combined Laurie&#39;s engraving skills with Whittle&#39;s social contacts and print sales experience. Together, they published numerous maps and atlases, often enlisting prominent cartographers such as Kitchin, Faden, Jefferys and others to update and modify their plates. This large map is an impressive example of their work.

In 1740 he came to London and in the same year went to Aleppo as physician to the English factory. He learnt to speak Arabic fluently, and acquired great influence with the Pasha and people of all creeds. In 1750 he was joined by his younger brother Patrick, and in 1753 he resigned, returning to England by way of Naples and Leghorn, in order to supplement his study of the plague at Aleppo by visiting the Lazarettos at those places. He had sent home seeds of the true scammony to his fellow-student John Fothergill ... he published a description of the plan, and the native method of collecting it, in the first volume of &#145;Medical Observations&#146; issued in 1755 by the Medical Society of London ... He reached London in February 1755, and in the following year published his [above work] which owed its origin to the suggestion of Fothergill. This work, which has been described as &#145;one of the most complete pictures of Eastern manners extant&#146; (Pinkerton Voyages and Travels), was reviewed by Dr Johnson in the &#145;Literary Magazine&#146; and translated into German by Gronovius ... &#145;& See also Patrick Russell in &#145;Medicine and Science.&#146; Additional postage may be necessary.
