Juan HUARTE

Examen des esprits propres et naiz aux sciences. Ou par merveilleux et vtiles secrets, tirez tant de la vraye philosophie naturelle, que diuine, est demonstree la difference des graces & habilitez qui se trouuent aux hommes...

Chez jacques Villery, à Paris 1619, in-12 (7,5x14cm), 607pp. (4), relié.


Later, rare edition. This edition, noted “the latest” (dernière), was published by three different printers at the same time; the first having appeared in 1580. The oldest editions in Spanish are from 1573 and 1575.
Modern vellum, speckled edges.
The full importance of this book of Spanish medicine has only recently come to be appreciated once more. It is today considered a precursor of psychiatry and psychology. According to Brunet (III, 357): "A well-structured work full of erudition, which nonetheless contains a number of bold and paradoxical ideas." Huarte was in effect the first thinker to bring together psychology and physiology.
