Item Description: Lisbon, Typographia da Academia Real das Sciencias, 1869., 1869. 32 pp. Large 8°, original pinkish-brown printed wrappers (slightly soiled; minor chipping). Light foxing and marginal dampstaining. Still, in good to very good condition. ---- FIRST EDITION. Sanches de Baena (1707-1782) had the misfortune to fall in love with his cousin D. Violante, who was also beloved by her uncle D. Antão de Almada. The young man eloped with D. Violante to Spain, and they were married in Zamora; but in 1755 the marriage was annulled, and D. Violante returned to Portugal, where she married her uncle. Sanches de Baena, stripped of all his goods and titles in 1744, spent 10 years in Rome, where the Pope granted him the title of marquis, and where he wrote sonnets in Spanish and Portuguese that were published in Madrid, 1770 (@Poesias varias). The author of this brief biography, Innocêncio Francisco da Silva (1810-1876), wrote the first seven volumes of the great bio-bibliographical dictionary @Dicionario bibliográfico português, still a standard reference work and often cited as "Innocêncio."---- Innocêncio X, 82.

Item Description: Pará, Alfredo Silva & C.ª, 1896., 1896. Printed in green on front cover, with black and white vignette of a sailing ship. Title page in red and black, with small floral vignette. Headpiece and tailpiece vignettes. (4 ll.), xix pp., (1 l.), [11]-40 pp., (1 l. advt., 2 ll., 1 l. advt.). 24° (13.7 x 7.4 cm.), original illustrated wrappers (part of what appears to be a postmark in blank lower margin of front cover; some very slight fraying at edges; small tear to spine), stapled. Uncut. Very good condition. Signed presentation inscription by the author of the "proemio": "Ao seu ilustre conterra- // neo, distintissimo poeta e notavel historiografo, // Manuel Ch. Portel, cor- // reto prototipo de virtu- // des civicas, // Of. // Fran Paxeco." ---- Apparently the first edition to contain the "proemio" by Francisco Pacheco, which occupies the xix pp. introductory section. The main body of text is a Portuguese language plot synopsis, or "argument," surely aimed at aiding the Brazilian audience to follow the Italian lyrics during a performance at the Grande Teatro Nossa Senhora da Paz in Belém de Pará, which had opened in 1874, considered the most important building devoted to culture in Northern Brazil. This may be the first appearance of the Portuguese "argument" as opposed to the libretto, but we really cannot be certain. Francisco Pacheco is probably one and the same as Francisco de Assis Pacheco (1865-1937), who wrote music, alone or in collaboration, for a number of comedies by Artur Azevedo.@Il Guarany (@The Guarany) is an opera ballo composed by Antônio Carlos Gomes (1836-1896), born in Campinas, Brazil, son of Maestro Manuel José Gomes and Fabiana Maria Jaguari Cardoso. The libretto was written by Antonio Scalvini and Carlo D'Ormeville. Having already achieved considerable success, and interested in composing an opera which dealt with a truly Brazilian subject, Carlos Gomes choose as the theme of his work the novel @O Guarani, by Brazilian novelist José de Alencar. With its Indian subject and setting the opera premiered in May 1870 at the La Scala Theater in Milan. The success was enormous. Even the most strict musical critics compared the Brazilian musician to the great European maestros, such as Rossini and Verdi. The King of Italy, Victor Emmanuel II, decorated the creator of the opera, which was presented in all major European capitals. Before that year was over, Gomes returned to Brazil where he organized the premiere of @Il Guarany in Rio de Janeiro. The piece achieved the same success Gomes had seen in Italy.Gomes wrote the hymn @Il saluto del Brasile for the centenary of American independence which was performed in Philadelphia, on July 19, 1876. In 1883 the maestro traveled to Brazil, receiving homages in every city he visited. When he returned to Italy, he dedicated himself to the composition of an opera with an anit-slavery theme, inspired by the liberation struggle of black slaves in Brazil, eventually titled @Lo Schiavo. The composition, which had been suggested by a great friend of Gomes, the Afro-Brazilian engineer André Rebouças, only debuted several years later in 1889. Invited by the governor of the Brazilian province Pará to direct the Musical Conservatory, the maestro traveled to the capital, Belém, to take the position. However, shortly after arriving, Carlos Gomes, by then elderly and in poor health, died on September 16, 1896. Besides eight operas, he composed songs (3 books), choruses, and piano pieces.While printing was introduced to Pará in 1821, all nineteenth-century imprints are rare.---- For Francisco de Assis Pacheco, see Wilson Martins, @História da inteligência brasileira, V, 1, 252. Sacramento Blake, II, 402, notes a Francisco de Assis Pacheco Neto, a native of the province of São Paulo who wrote @Vespertinas: lyrica, São Paulo 1887. On Antônio Carlos Gomes see Sacramento Black I, 125-30, without mention of any specific editions of either librettos or arguments for @O Guarany, but with a long paragraph about its various productions o.
