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."Binding: hardcover
