First edition of Piaget's groundbreaking work on the development of intelligence in children and child psychology in general.

Piaget wrote 3 books on child psychology which all became classics, this, however, being his first and main work on the subject. "This masterpiece was the result of an extremely long preparatory phase. With the help of his wife, Piaget began observing his children after the birth of his first daughter. Published 9 years later, The Origins of Intelligence in Children [The title of the English translation] analyzes behavior from birth to approximately 18 month." (Montangero, Piaget, or, The advance of knowledge, 1997, p. 18).
There had previously been published works related to psychology of children and teenagers this, however, is the first work to describe the physiology in a scientific way of children as young as 0 to 18 month.
It is, [...], the work of Jean Piaget that has been most influential on the way psychologists, educators, and even philosophers have come to think about the cognitive development of children. (SEP).
