Very rare first German edition of Gerard's influential "Plan of Education in the Marischal College and University of Aberdeen, with the Reasons of it. Drawn up by Order of the Faculty" (Aberdeen, 1755). Contemporary sources list the translator as Gottlieb Schlegel. Through the work of William Smith, founder of the University of Pennsylvania, the Marischal College plan of education did much to mould the shape of university education in America (see John S. Reid, Aberdeen University Review no. 172, 1984, pp. 359-79). Not at NLS. Worldcat records only one copy outside Germany (Denmark, Ballerup). The accompanying Kantian text is the third edition of "Observations on the Feeling of the Beautiful and the Sublime" (first published in 1764). This was Kant's most popular work, going through eight printings during his lifetime. Light-hearted in tone, it includes comments, typical of the age, on the differences between the sexes and between races. John Zammito and others have viewed it as a kind of proto-anthropology, prefiguring some of Kant's later work. Adickes 38. PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: Small 8vo, [ii], 110, 86 pp., contemporary marbled boards with red label lettered gilt, rubbed, some loss to head of spine, ends of joints starting to split but binding tight and firm, uniform browning and occasional spots, no stamps or inscriptions, sound copies in a sammelband nicely linking the Scottish and German Enlightenments.
