Item Description: Livraria Sulina Editora, Porto Alegre, 1967. Soft Cover. Book Condition: Good. Fernando Coroa, Francisco Bellanca, J. Samaranch (illustrator). Text/VG; brackets to pgs 131/132, else As New. Illustrated soft cover/Good; light edge wear, and missing lower front corner. "Foi em 1932 que comecamos a interessar-nos mais profundamente no estudio da historia de Porto Alegre. Havia doze anos que residiamos definitivamente na capital gaucha. Mas foi durante as comemoracoes do Centenario da Revolucao Farroupilha, quando, por ordem do major Alberto Bins, entao Prefeito Municipal, organizamos e dirigimos o Pavilhao Cultural da grande exposicao - unica no seu genero - que travamos relacoes com a vasta documentacao inedita existente na entao Diretoria do Archivo Municipal, pouco mais tarde transformada em Diretoria do Arquivo e Biblioteca e, a seguir, em Servico de Documentacao. Aquele enorme acervo documental desconhecido e abandonado, nos o encontramos ja pronto para ser vendido como papelada inutil, tal como ja havem feito anteriormente com enorme quantidade de documentos e livros manuscritos do acervo municipal. Comecamos, a partir dai, gracas as providencias do Prefeito Jose Loureiro da Silva, que nos nomeara Bibliotecario e logo depois Diretor daquela abonada reparticao, a reunir, revisar e catalogar na medida do possivel aquele resto documental, acrescentando-lhe, com inauditos esforcos, nova serie de documentos: fotagrafias as mais variadas dos velhos tempos porto-alegrenses. Conseguimos, assim, acumular na reparticao, em mais de trinta anos de trabalho, cerca de duzentas fotos e alguns desenhos e reproducoes de pinturas antigas, que nos mostram Porto Alegre a partir de 1820, mais o menos." [Explicacao Necessaria] What results is a thorough survey of the city's history and amenities. 320 pages with illustrations (one in color). Text: PORTUGUESE. Bookseller Inventory # 203525

Item Description: Porto Editora, Porto, Portugal, 2000. Hardcover. 2. ed. revised and updated. Nota da editora: Este dicionário de Francês-Português é a concretização de um projecto rigoroso de pesquisa e reflexão sobre a língua. Pela diversidade e actualidade do seu conteúdo, pretende-se um dicionário não só desti nado ao grande público, mas dirigido igualmente aos estudantes e pro fessores. Nesta edição incluem-se vocábulos recentes de domínios tão diversificados como as novas tecnologias, o desporto, a política, a ecologia, e a psicologia. Registam-se igualmente neologismos, variantes geográficas e palavras de origem estrangeira, sobretudo anglicismos, que entraram no uso corrente das duas línguas, assim como referências de ordem cultural, tão importantes para a compreensão de uma língua e de uma sociedade. A estrutura das entradas foi definida de modo criterioso, destacando níveis de língua, contextos, áreas temáticas e anotações sintácticas que tornam a consulta desta obra mais eficiente e didáctica. A inclusão de frases idiomáticas e de numerosas expressões de uso quotidiano, tanto as mais tradicionais como as de um registo coloquial, ilustra pedagogicamente os conceitos apresentados. Um dicionário é sempre o resultado de muitos esforços conjuntos. A par da vertente linguística, a concepção gráfica desta obra foi alvo de um estudo pormenorizado, de modo a estruturar toda a informação de forma clara e visível, permitindo uma utilização rápida e eficaz. Para este projecto muito contribuíram ainda as sugestões de inúmeros leitores. Registamos assim o nosso sincero agradecimento a todos os que participaram neste dicionário, esperando ter conseguido alcançar o nosso objectivo: oferecer um verdadeiro instrumento de trabalho a todos os que se interessam pelo estudo e compreensão da língua francesa. (Porto, Setembro de 2000). Dicionários Editora. 832 pp. New. Excellent. Slight creases on front cover. In original box. Bookseller Inventory # 7284

Item Description: Lisbon, Editora Arcádia, 1972., 1972. 8°, publisher's buckram with dust jacket (jacket slightly frayed, especially at head of spine, and with some discoloration). Water damage to read wrapper. Still, in good condition; fine internally. Author's signed presentation copy with inscription on recto of front free endleaf: "Ao Américo," // fraternalmente [?] // o // Hernâni Cidade". 449 pp. *** Third edition, "revista e ampliada".Hernâni Cidade (Redondo 1887-Évora 1975) taught school in Coimbra, Leiria, Porto and Lisbon before moving on to an illustrious career in higher education at the Universities of Porto and Lisbon. Best known as an author of literary and cultural history, as well as literary biography, in his youth Cidade was linked to the modernist movement, having been involved with the reviews Águia and Seara Nova, among others. For a half century he was a major force in the cultural life of Portugal, collaborating in reviews such as those of the Faculdades de Letras of both Lisbon and Porto, newspapers, especially O Primeiro de Janeiro, as well as numerous collective projects, such as the Grande enciclopédia portuguesa e brasileira, and Dicionário de literatura. With Joaquim de Carvalho and Mário de Azevedo Gomes he edited the Diário liberal (Lisbon, 1934-1935); with Reynaldo dos Santos and Bernardo Marques he founded Colóquio-revista de artes e letras (1959-1970), and with Jacinto do Prado Coelho in 1971 Colóquio / Letras, these last two published by the Gulbenkian Foundation.Provenance: Américo Cortez Pinto (1896-1979), physician, writer, poet and historian, native of the freguesia de Cortes in the concelho de Leiria. He studied at Coimbra, interned at Leira, served as a parliamentary deputy, a member of the Lisbon municipal council, and inspector of health studies, among other posts. A contributor to literary reviews such as A Tradição, Contemporânea, A Galera, Letras e Artes, and Ícaro, of which he was one of the founders, along with Ernesto Gonçalves, Cabral do Nascimento, and Luís Vieira de Castro. In addition to a considerable output of poetry, prose, literary and historical works, he is best known for the polemical Da famosa arte da imprimissão: da imprensa em Portugal às cruzadas d'Além-Mar (1948), in which he defended the priority of Leiria in Portuguese Christian typography. While Chaves currently is agreed to have been the earliest Portuguese Christian printing site, Cortez Pinto's investigations and conclusions regarding the diffusion of printing in Africa and Asia by the Portuguese remain valuable. Hernani Cidade was one of Cortez Pinto's closest friends. Others were Afonso Lopes Vieira, Carlos Queiroz, Lino António, António José Saraiva, Sebastião Pestana, and Mário Saa. On Américo Cortez Pinto, see Paulo J. Pedrosa S. Gomes in Biblos, IV, 179-80; also Dicionário cronológico de authores portugueses, III, 501-3; and Grande enciclopédia, VII, 818; Actualização III, 498.*** See Álvaro Manuel Machado, Dicionário de literatura portuguesa, p. 128; Maria de Lourdes Belchior in Biblos I, 1132-4; Dicionário cronológico de autores portugueses, III, 344-5; Grande enciclopedia VI, 751; Actualização III, 226.
