KANT) NITSCH, Friedrich August
A General and Introductory View of Professor Kant's Principles Concerning Man, the World, and the Deity, submitted to the Consideration of the Learned. London: J. Downes, 1796.
1767. First edition of the earliest book to present and discuss Kant's philosophy in English. F.A. Nitsch (1767–1813) was born in East Prussia. He studied philosophy at Königsberg, and then for several years taught mathematics and Latin at the Collegium Fridericianum there. In 1793, he moved to London and began to write articles and give lessons on Kantian philosophy, with Kant's approval and encouragement. This book of Nitch's is an important milestone in the early reception of Kant outside Germany, introducing terms such as the Categorical Imperative into the English language. Ludwig Heinrich Jakob wrote favourably about the book in a letter to Kant at the end of 1797. PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: 8vo, [iv], 234 pp., contemporary full calf, rebacked, boards rubbed and marked, corners restored, some foxing on endpapers only, title-page with old ownership inscription 'E. Henderson', rear pastedown with early annotations in pencil, uniform light browning, a decent copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
