Date Published: 1792

Description: Engraved device on title page. ii, 182pp. Slim 8vo, contemporary grey paper wrappers, rubbed and a bit chipped at edges; new burgundy cloth backstrip (light foxing; several pages dog-eared). Konigsberg: Im Verlag der Hartungschen Buchhandlung, 1792. A very good copy of the true first edition, published anonymously and originally attributed to Immanuel Kant.

Comments: "Fichte's first published work, Attempt at a Critique of All Revelation, a book that investigates the connections between divine revelation and Kant's critical philosophy. For reasons that remain obscure... the book was published anonymously, and was thus mistakenly thought to be a new [4th] work of Kant himself. Kant cleared the confusion and openly praised the work, which greatly improved Fichte's reputation in the philosophical community."

I thought you'd find this interesting: I learned of Argosy by reading a bit of "bad" publicity in the book "Used and Rare" by Lawrence and Nancy Goldstone; no doubt you're familiar with it. (It was unfortunate that the authors had to grind their ax in print in what was an otherwise enjoyable book.) But I had never heard of Argosy before and my curiosity was piqued, so negative comments notwithstanding, I decided to pay a brief visit to the store. I reserved a book (long sought-after) ahead of time because I knew I'd be on an extremely tight schedule with several stops to make in just a few hours' time. Calling to reserve the book was a pleasant, very efficient experience, with a prompt return call to confirm availability. When I stopped in to purchase the book, the greeting (by one of the sisters, I'm not sure which) was extremely pleasant, the service so prompt and also she informed me of a signed letter by the subject I was interested in (unfortunately, I was unable to purchase the letter that day). I found the photo of Lawrence Olivier and Vivien Leigh as Caesar (or Antony?) and Cleopatra which hangs over the register very interesting-- had seen it before in a book. My only disappointment was that I was unable to actually spend time in the store-- it looked so inviting! But I will make it a point to spend time there on my next visit. So you see, even bad publicity can be very beneficial! Thank you for an enjoyable, if brief, experience! - Teri McDowell
