Description

The rhetorician and school master Bernardo Nuti translated Aristotle's Nicomachean Ethics into Italian from the Latin version of Leonardo Bruni in the early 1450s on behest of the Spanish humanist Nuño de Guzmán (the original manuscript with the explicit dedication to Guzmán is now preserved at New Haven, Beinecke, ms. 151). Several manuscripts, copied throughout the second half of the 15th c., witness a wide circulation of the work.
