About this Item

The rare first Italian translation, Aldine 1582. Huarte, Gio. (Juan) ESSAME DE GL’INGEGNI DE GLI HUOMINI, PER APPRENDER LE SCIENZE: Nel quale, scoprendosi la varieta delle nature, si mostra, a che professione sia atto ciascuno, & quanto profitto habbia fatto in essa. Nuouamente tradotto dalla lingua Spagnuola da M. Camillo Camilli. Venice: (Aldine Press,) 1582. Very good in early 18th-century ¼-mottled sheep with gilt decoration on the spine and the original morocco lettering piece, with the ex-libris of G. Fumach. The title page has the Aldine anchor device but none is called for at the end of the text. The text is printed in italic type and shows scattered foxing and there is light damp staining toward the rear. This is the first edition of the Italian translation, by M. Camilli, of Juan Huarte’s Examen de Ingenios, first published in Madrid in 1575 and considered the earliest attempt to investigate human psychology in the modern sense. It was an extremely popular and influential text that was translated into seven European languages and went through at least 70 editions before 1700. The first version in English (1594) was translated from this Italian translation by Richard Carew as: The Examination of Mens Wits. In Which, by Discovering the Varietie of Natures, Is Shewed for What Profession Each One Is Apt, and How Far He Shall Profit Therein. [Garrison-Morton 4967 (Original Spanish edition); Renouard page 230.3]. Bookseller Inventory # COB150001
