Item Description: Lisbon, Na Officina de Domingos Rodrigues, 1749., 1749. Small typographical vignette on title page. Woodcut headpieces, initial, and factotum initials. (4 ll.), 100 pp. 7 works in 1 volume. 4°, nineteenth-century tree sheep (some wear, especially to corners), flat spine gilt with red leather lettering piece, gilt letter and initials "M.V.D." near foot, marbled endleaves. Browning. Overall in good condition. Eight-line nineteenth-century ink manuscript note on verso of second front free endleaf, commenting on the authorship of D. Maria de Lara e Menezes and the cost of the work. 7 works in 1 volume. ---- These poems probably appeared in print for the first time in 1716, under the title "Sentimentos de D. Pedro e de D. Ignes de Castro," in volume I of the @Fenix renascida. Their author, D. Maria de Lara e Menezes (1610-1649), daughter of the Duque de Caminha, was the wife of D. Duarte de Bragança, brother of D. João IV. The story of D. Inez de Castro has inspired poems, dramas, and operas. In 1340, the beautiful D. Inez came to Portugal as lady-in-waiting to the Infanta of Spain, Constanza, who was betrothed to D. Pedro, future king of Portugal. D. Pedro gave his hand to the Infanta but his heart to D. Inez. After the Infanta died, D. Pedro and D. Inez were married morganatically. But intrigues surrounded them: Portuguese nobles whispered that D. Inez wanted to bring her own friends to Court, and even wanted to have her eldest son succeed D. Affonso IV, rather than the legitimate heir. In 1355 D. Inez was assassinated. D. Pedro swore to make amends, and when he acceded to the throne two years later, he punished her tormentors, insisted that the Church recognize his marriage, and had D. Inez?s body exhumed and reburied with royal honors at Alcobaça.---- Innocêncio VI, 139-40 refers to an edition of Lisbon: Offic. Joaquiniana da Musica, 1744; XVI, 357-8 mentions an edition by the same publisher, 1745, and refers to the present edition, claiming in error that it was merely the 1745 edition with a new title page; see also V, 370-1. Roig, @Inesiana 681. OCLC: 83648902 (Houghton Library); 62703951 (Newberry Library); for the 1745 edition, see 223741824 (Thomas Fischer Rare Book Library-University of Toronto); 78226625 (Houghton Library); and 62703948 (Newberry Library). Porbase locates three copies of the present edition, all in the Biblioteca Nacional de Portugal (one lacking the title page), and one copy of the 1745 edition, also in the Biblioteca Nacional de Portugal.

Item Description: Lisbon, Portugal Brasil Lda., Sociedade Editora, 1922., 1922. Title-page printed in red and black. (1 blank l.), 386 pp., (3, 1 blank ll.). 8°, original illustrated wrappers (some spotting; very slight fraying near foot of spine). Minor stains, a few pencil marks. Overall in very good condition. Author's nine line signed presentation inscription to the distinguished Portuguese writer Henrique Lopes de Mendonça on front flyleaf. ---- FIRST and ONLY EDITION of this volume consisting of papers read in public and essays, with a few poems. Subjects of the papers and essays are Inês de Castro, the panels of São Vicente, Camões, Portuguese art, João de Deus, Eça de Queiroz, and much more.Afonso Lopes Vieira (1878-1946) was Portugal's best traditional poet of the twentieth century. In 1916 he resigned his post as Redactor da Câmara dos Deputados in Lisbon in order to dedicate himself to reading and to poetry. His home, São Pedro de Moel, became a haven for artists, musicians and writers. He also travelled extensively in Europe and North Africa, and reminiscences of these travels often appear in his works.Lopes Vieira's earliest published works were written as a student at Coimbra, 1897-1900, e.g. @Para quê?, 1897, and @Náufrago, 1898. From this melancholy phase he passed into a nationalistic one, in which he publicized early Portuguese literature, aiming to "reaportuguesar Portugal tornando-o europeau." During this period he helped prepare an edition of Camões (1928) and edited Montemayor's @Diana, the @Amadis, and Rodrigues Lobo. His Portuguese translation of the @Poema do Cid was published in the periodical @Lusitânia, of which Lopes Vieira served as secretary. He also wrote essays and fiction, as well as works for children, e.g. @Animais nossos amigos, 1911 and @Canto infantil, 1912.---- Santos, @Exposição bibliográfica de Afonso Lopes Vieira, p. 14. See Saraiva & Lopes, @História da literatura portuguesa (17th ed., 2001), p. 961; Bell, @Portuguese Literature, p. 337: "There is a certain strength as well as a subtle music about his verse which is of good promise for the future." Also Maria Amélia Gomes in Machado, ed., @Dicionário de literatura portuguesa, pp. 501?2; Fernando Guimarães in @Biblos, V, 844?6; and @Dicionário cronológico de autores portugueses, III, 214?6.
