Immanuel Kant had a copy of this translation in his personal library (Warda, Kants Bücher, X, 89). Second edition (published in the year following the first) of Garve's translation of Paley's Principles of Moral and Political Philosophy (1785), his most important work in which he lays out an early form of utilitarian ethics. Paley compiled the Principles from his ethics lectures at Cambridge. The late priest and scholar the Revd Dr David Nicholls (1936-96) kept a pet Venezuelan macaw which he named after William Paley. The macaw was responsible for many penetrating letters to the Times and other national newspapers on political and ecclesiastical matters of the day, under the nom-de-plume 'The Ven. William Paley, Archdeacon emeritus'. Christian Garve's translations of influential British authors (usually, as here, with his own remarks and commentaries) helped to make his reputation as one of the leading philosophical teachers in Germany. His other translations included Adam Ferguson's Institutes of Moral Philosophy, Burke's On the Sublime and Beautiful, and Adam Smith's Wealth of Nations. PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: 2 volumes in one, 8vo, xxxii, 390, 520 pp., contemporary marbled boards, red spine label lettered gilt, rubbed at edges, small early ownership inscription on first title-page, uniform light browning and the occasional spot, a very good copy.
