Webster's 1913 Dictionary
\Tal"ent*ed\, a.
Furnished with talents; possessing skill or talent; mentally
gifted. --Abp. Abbot (1663).

Note: This word has been strongly objected to by Coleridge
      and some other critics, but, as it would seem, upon not
      very good grounds, as the use of talent or talents to
      signify mental ability, although at first merely
      metaphorical, is now fully established, and talented,
      as a formative, is just as analogical and legitimate as
      gifted, bigoted, moneyed, landed, lilied, honeyed, and
      numerous other adjectives having a participal form, but
      derived directly from nouns and not from verbs.
