Über die von der Könogl. Akademie der Wissenschaften zu Berlin für das Jahr 1791 ausgesetzte Preisfrage: Welches sind die wirklichen Fortschritte, die die Metaphysik seit Leibnitzens und Wolf's Zeiten in Deutschland gemacht hat? Herausgegeben von Friedrich Theodor Rink.

Königsberg, Goebbels & Unger, 1804. 8vo. Original blank blue wrappers with handwritten title to spine. A very nice copy. Contemporary owner's name to inside of front board (S. Grubbe) and stamp to title-page (Gothenburg Museum, 1861). 204, (4, -advertisements) pp.

The rare first edition of Kant's famous posthumously published prize essay, written in 1791, answering the question set by the Berlin Royal Academy of Sciences: What are the Actual Advances Metaphysics Has Made in Germany Since the Time of Leibniz and Wolff?

Right after Kant's death in 1804, Friedrich Theodor Rink edited and published parts of drafts Kant had written on this topic; Kant never published a finished version, and this is all that appeared.
