Riga: Johann Friedrich Hartknoch, 1783. First. Octavo. Original binding in publisher's blue paste paper over boards. Good. Item #15
From the library of the Oldenburg Gymnasium (Gymnasium Zu Oldenburg). First edition, second issue with woodcut device to title, woodcut head-piece (angels) on p. 3, and woodcut tail-piece (rod with leaves). 8vo., 222, [2 (blank)] pp. Original binding is solid in the publisher’s blue paste paper with red speckled edge stain. Paste paper has deteriorated from the spine and hinges. Interior pages are clean. Foxing is limited to just the end paper. For unknown reasons, a small 1x2 inch blank piece of contemporary paper is glued to the verso of the front free end paper. A respectably resilient copy of Kant’s rebuttal to the critic’s critiques of his Critique of Pure Reason.
