KANT. CHAMBERLAIN, HOUSTON STEWART. - Immanuel Kant - a study and a comparison with Goethe, Leonardo da Vinci, Bruno, Plato and Descartes.

London, John Lane 1914. Two volumes octavo publisher's cloth (spines faded); eight portraits. ¶ First edition in English, translated by Lord Redesdale with Chamberlain's approval and assistance. Perhaps one of Chamberlain's more respectable works; it is usually held to exemplify the breadth of his erudition. Online research on Chamberlain brings up so many racist and neo-Nazi websites that I retired from the job feeling sick and anxious. A small confusion with dates had me thinking that Redesdale was the father of the Mitford girls, a puzzle. Not his admiration of Chamberlain but any sign of scholarship. It isn't him, it's his father.
