Item Description: University Of Texas Press, 1969. hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good In Dustjacket. 1st Edition. Austin. 1969. University Of Texas Press. 1st American Edition. Very Good In Dustjacket. 170 pages. hardcover. 0292784015. Cover art by Enrico Bianco. Drawings by Enrico Bianco. Translated from the Portuguese by Fred P. Ellison. Originally published in Brazil under the title Memorias de Lazaro, 1952. keywords: Literature Translated Brazil Latin America. inventory # 3330. FROM THE PUBLISHER - These are the recollections of Alexandre - of his life, his death-in-life, and his ultimate death as they are played out against the mobile tapestry of the valley where he was born. The valley itself, in the backlands of the state of Bahia, Brazil, alternates at different stages in Alexandre’s consciousness between reality and symbol. It swings from a harsh regional specificity to become the panorama of all human life, its endless, eroding wind the devouring hostility of all environments and its pain the pain of every human being in the face of his own brutality and that of others. Throughout the novel Alexandre’s mind ranges from sharp awareness, through hallucination, to oblivion (‘a man dies while alive,’ says Jeronimo, his mentor), and back again as he experiences the violent, obtuse phenomena of life in the valley - his universe and ours. This latter-day Lazarus leaves the resisting hills and black sky once only, hounded by the valley dwellers who believe he has murdered his wife, her father, and her brother. Yet despite his awareness of the horror of the valley and his intuition of something beyond it, it is precisely his contact with the gentler existence to which he escapes that forces Alexandre to recognize his nature for what it is. Turning his back on a greater and more varied range of feeling and experience, he chooses the narrow ferocity of the valley, to which he returns to die the final death for which the earlier deaths have prepared him. This best-known novel by Adonias Filho, the Brazilian writer whose work has been compared to that of Emily Brontë and William Faulkner, was translated by Fred P. Ellison, Professor of Spanish and Portuguese at The University of Texas. Texas Pan American Series. The translator, Fred P. Ellison, also translated The Three Marias, by Rachel de Queiroz, and is the author of Brazil’s New Novel: Four Northeastern Masters. Specialist in Brazilian and Spanish-American literature, he met the author of Memórias de Ldzaro in Rio de Janeiro in 1966 and determined to bring to the English-speaking reader Adonias Filho’s powerful masterwork. Originally published in Brazil under the title Memorias de Lazaro, 1952. Adonias Aguiar Filho (November 27, 1915 – August 2, 1990) was a writer and novelist from Bahia, Brazil, and a member of the Academia Brasileira de Letras. Filho was born in Itajuípe, Brazil, the son of Adonias Aguiar and Rachel Bastos de Aguiar. In 1936, 2 years after finishing high school in Salvador, he moved from the south of Bahia to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil’s capital at the time, where he continued his career in Journalism, previously started in Salvador. He worked in renowned newspapers such as Correio da Manhã as well as a literary critic for Cadernos da ‘Hora Presente’, from São Paulo em 1937, ‘A Manhã’, from 1944 to 1945, besides ‘Jornal de Letras’ (from 1955 to 1960) and ‘Diário de Notícias’ (1958 to 1960). In São Paulo, he also collaborated with O Estado de S. Paulo and ‘Folha da Manhã’. Between 1946 and 1950, he ran the book publishing company ‘A Noite’. He was the director of the Serviço Nacional de Teatro, in 1954, and director of the Biblioteca Nacional from 1961 to 1971. At the same time, he worked at the Agência Nacional at the Ministério da Justiça. In 1966 he was elected vice-president of the Associação Brasileira de Imprensa and in the following year, member of the Conselho Federal de Cultura. He was re-elected in 1969, 1971 and 1973.

Item Description: Rio de Janeiro, Typographia Brasileira - Edictor J.J. do Patrocinio, 1861., 1861. Lithograph vignette on title page. 54 pp., lithographic frontisportrait of Feijó. 8°, original printed wrappers (missing about 2 cm. at top; spine defective). In good condition. Signature of Manuel Caetano da Cruz in bottom margin of front wrapper. ---- FIRST and ONLY EDITION. Diogo Antônio Feijó was ordained Roman Catholic priest on 25 February 1809. He was elected (1821) to the Portuguese Côrtes to represent Brazil. Along with other Brazilian deputies Feijó refused to sign the Portuguese Constitution and later criticized the authoritarian nature of the first Brazilian Constitution (1824). As a deputy in the General Assembly (1826-1829, 1830-1833), Feijó attacked the regime of Emperor Pedro I. After the emperor's abdication (7 April 1831) and the election of the Permanent Regency (17 June 1831), Feijó assumed the office of justice minister, but failed to bring social reconciliation and resigned (3 August 1832). In July 1833 he was elected senator and served on the Statistics Committee (1834). Political instability in Brazil of early 1830s brought about the adoption of the Additional Act (Ato Adicional, 1834) changing the structure of government. Feijó was elected to the post of sole regent of the Empire (7 Apr 1835). His government attempted to stop the process of disintegration, but had to deal with two major revolts in the provinces of Para (revolt known as Cabanagem) and Rio Grande do Sul (Farroupilha). With his health declining and facing severe criticism, Feijó resigned the office of regent on 19 September 1837 and was succeeded by Pedro de Araújo Lima. He returned to the Senate as its president (1839), but suffered a hemorrhage, which left him partially paralyzed. In 1842 Feijó sided with the liberals, who rose in arms protesting against the outcome of parliamentary elections. He was arrested during the suppression of the revolution by the Duke of Caxias and exiled to Vitória, Espírito Santo. A few months later he was freed and returned to São Paulo. The author, a native of Alagoas (born 1816), took his degree in medicine from the Faculdade de Medicina in Bahia. He was a vocal opponent of João Vicente Martins when the latter introduced Hahnemann's homoeopathic medicine to Brazil, but after a few months saw the merits of Martins' arguments and became an an equally vocal proponent, publishing numerous books on the subject. He also published many political, historical and literary works, and was editor of the @Correio mercantil, a daily newspaper in Bahia, and founder of the newspaper @O Medico do povo.---- For the author, see Blake I, 34-38, who does not mention this title.

Item Description: Paris, na Livraria Portugueza de J.P. Aillaud (Imprimerie de Bourgogne et Martiner), 1837., 1837. Elaborate wood-engraved publisher's vignette on title pages. (2 ll.), 322 pp.; (2 ll.), 323 pp.; (2 ll.), 249 pp. 3 volumes. 12°, contemporary half mottled sheep over marbled boards (corners worn; small split to lower joint of volume I near foot of spine; four small round wormholes in spine of volume II; rubbing and other minor wear), flat spines gilt with citron morocco lettering pieces and black leather numbering pieces, text-block edges sprinkled green. Overall a very good set. 3 volumes. ---- First Edition of the present translation. An earlier translation of @The Talisman appeared in two volumes, Lisbon 1835-1836. Based on a note in the @Correio das Damas of 1844, Bettencourt Pires assumes that translation was by one Dr. Rosas. The @Correio das Damas commented about it, "muitas versões de differentes novellas de Sir Walter Scott por ahi giram e todas ellas segundo entendemos são feitas do francez excepto a do Talisman pelo Dr. Rosas, porque esta é realmente traduzida do inglez, mas infelizmente por um inglez que não tinha conhecimento sufficiente da lingua portugueza. Contudo não deixamos de agradecer ao Sr. Rosas os seus bons desejos" (quoted in Bettencourt Pires p. 44). A spate of Scott translations appeared from the mid 1830s to the early 1840s.Caetano Lopes de Moura (1780-1860), an Afro-Brazilian author and native of Bahia, became involved in the Inconfidencia Bahiana of 1798 and later fought in the Peninsular War before establishing a medical practice in Paris. There he found that he could not live on his income as a physician, and so applied himself to writing and translating: he was responsible for the translation into Portuguese of several French medical books, as well as works of Sir Walter Scott and James Fenimore Cooper. His translations had such great influence in Brazil that D. Pedro II, hearing of his financial difficulties, awarded him a pension from his private purse.---- Ramos, @A edição de língua portuguesa em França 333 (giving incorrect collation). Gonçalves Rodrigues 4776 (giving the same collation as Ramos). Bettencourt Pires, @Walter Scott e o romantismo português pp. 44-5 and 126. Monteverde 4975.
