First American edition, from the fourth London edition. Front board and free endpaper loose, seminary bookplate on front paste-down, rear hinge & joint just starting, two seminary stickers on spine. 1803 Full-Leather. xiii, 388,  pp. Alciphron is a Christian apologetic in answer to the 'minute philosophers' of Berkeley's day, who sought to minimize the the dignity of man. Berkeley is known as an advocate of subjective idealism (which he called immaterialism), which states that objects do not exist unless they are perceived. Perhaps his most well-known work is Three Dialogues between Hylas and Philonous, in which two characters representing himself and John Locke discuss various philosophical questions. Berkeley lends his name to both a city and a prestigious university in California.
