KANT, IMMANUEL. - Metaphysical Works of the celebrated Immanuel Kant, translated from the German, with a Sketch of his Life and Writings, by John Richardson ... Containing 1. Logic. 2. Prolegomena to Future Metaphysics. 3. Enquiry into the Proofs for the Existence of God, and into the Theodicy, now first published.

London 1836 [but each printed for Simpkin & Marshall in 1819]. Octavo modern half calf; two engraved portraits (one for the first, the other for the third work), collective title and title for each work. A little browning here and there, a rather good, fresh copy. ¶ First English edition of the third work and re-issues of the original 1819 sheets of the first two. The Enquiry was also printed in 1819 but never published for some reason. Lack of interest easily explains the existence of unsold sheets being gathered together for sale (by Pickering?) in 1836 but not why the Enquiry was killed before birth. The title pages for Logic and Prolegomena each carry the 1819 Simpkin Marhsall imprint but are on different paper to the text - are these reprints made in 1836? Richardson was an old Kantian, he published the first translations of Kant into English in 1798 and apparently corresponded with Kant but otherwise remains in the shadows from what I can discern.
