Item Description: Rio de Janeiro, H. Garnier, 1909., 1909. (2 ll.), 146 pp., (1 l.), 36 pp. advertisement for books available from Livraria H. Garnier. 8?, contemporary red quarter calf over marbled boards (minor wear at extremities), flat spine, gilt author, title, and ornaments, "M.S." at foot (some wear, joints starting). Light browning. Some leaves reinforced with tissue at inner margin; a few leaves loosening. Overall in near-good to good condition. Front pastedown endleaf has bookplate of Prof. Mario Guimar?es de Souza of Recife and small tag of Livraria Brand?o Sebo, Recife and Salvador. ---- FIRST EDITION of this collection of lectures given from 1901 to 1906 on charity, words, water, fire, and mirrors, plus a speech welcoming Mario de Alencar to the Academia Brasileira.Coelho Netto (1864-1934) was born in Caxias, Maranh?o, to a Portuguese father and Indian mother. From his earliest years he was fascinated with native lore as well as the Portuguese and Latin classics; both had profound effects on his writings. He is difficult to classify, and has been called both a realist and a romanticist. Certainly he was one of the most vocal adversaries of the Modernist movement, and the Modernist authors responded by excluding his works from anthologies for many years. In the Academia Brasileira de Letras, however, he was held in such esteem that he was nominated for the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1933. To Machado de Assis he was "dos nossos primeiros romancistas, e geralmente falando, dos nossos primeiros escritores"; to Silvio RomÈro, he was one of the sixteen best Brazilian writers, and "o mais imaginoso de todos" (both quoted in Faria, pp. 126, 128).Coelho Netto left an enormous oeuvre of over 120 volumes, including novels, plays, short stories, folktales, and political and historical essays. His works have been translated into French, English, German, Italian, Spanish, Swiss, Russian, Japanese, Danish and Esperanto.---- Menezes, @Dicion rio literario brasileiro pp. 196-8.

Item Description: ?vora, Manuel Carvalho, 1636., 1636. Title page with typographical border. Woodcut headpieces, tailpieces, initials and factotum. (4 ll.), 326 [actually 328] pp., (12 ll.). 4?, contemporary speckled calf (label missing, rubbed), spine heavily gilt in six compartments (top compartment defective, hole in another compartment), text-block edges sprinkled red. Marginal dampstaining, somewhat browned. Slight worming to last 30 leaves, touching 1-2 letters on many pages. Still, overall in good condition. Eighteenth-century owners' signatures on front flyleaf (De Binis da Costa de [illegible]), title-page (Dr. Costa, D. Manuel Gomes) and verso of final leaf (Antonio Agostinho de Freitas Henriquez). ---- FIRST and ONLY EDITION of this book by a Jesuit author that discusses ethical and philosophical questions regarding politics, economics, and society. These questions, treated in the abstract, are similar to precepts one might find in courtesy books of the day. The volume ends with a 400-line poem on educational reforms by the Jesuits at the University of ?vora.In the main text, Pereira is concerned with ethical dilemmas. For example: Is it greater wisdom to laugh about the human condition or to cry about it? Is it better to be subject to a ruler who was elected, or who inherited his position? Is it good or bad to be ruled by a woman? Should princes aim to be feared or loved? Which is more powerful, the desire for honor or for wealth? Where do leaders most shine, in battles on land or on sea?The final seven leaves contain a 400-verse neo-Latin poem by Pereira that describes the reforms instituted by the rector of ?vora's College of Arts, P. Antonio de Sousa (d. 1635). The University of ?vora was established by Cardinal D. Henrique in 1559, and was soon put under the control of the Jesuits. In the 1630s, the authority of the Jesuits was challenged by the rector of the University of ?vora. Sousa's reforms defended the rights and privileges of the Jesuits against those attacks. According to the @Grande enciclopÈdia, this poem is a major source on those reforms. Pereira (1605-1681) was in an excellent position to recognize the importance of these reforms. He entered the Jesuit order in 1620, studied humanities at ?vora and philosophy at Coimbra, before returning to ?vora to work on his doctorate. For twenty years he taught at ?vora. Pereira was one of the most learned Jesuits of his time, and his major works were much admired. His Latin-Portuguese-Spanish dictionary, @Prosodia in vocabularum trilingue latinam lusitanum, et castellanum digesta, first published at ?vora, 1634, went through many editions. @Pallas togata is one of his rarest works.---- Arouca P105.

On title pages, engraved Portuguese royal arms flanked by two putti, above whose heads is engraved "Impress?o" and "Regia". 385 pp. [i.e., 387], (1 p. errata); 345 pp. (1 l. errata); 264 pp. Volume I, pp. 377-87 incorrectly numbered 375-85. Volume III, p. 332 incorrectly numbered 333. 3 volumes. 4?, mid-nineteenth-century quarter calf over marbled boards (very slight wear), flat spines with gilt fillets and two crimson morocco labels per volume, one with title, the other with the volume number, lettering and numbering gilt, marbled endleaves, text-block edges sprinkled green. Title pages with light toning and a few light, minor stains. Overall in very good to fine condition. 3 volumes. ---- FIRST EDITION. The third volume is more difficult to obtain than the first two. Toward the end of volume I are a series of translations, including selections from Virgil, Homer's @Iliad, and others. Volume III includes translations of two odes by Horace. Throughout are poems to or about figures important in Portuguese history and literature, such as Vasco da Gama, Cam?es, and the Infante Dom Henrique, as well as one on the discovery of America by Columbus. In volume III, from page 176 to the end, are a series of neo-Latin poems.Ribeiro dos Santos (1745-1818), philologist, librarian, jurist, literary historian and poet, was a native of Massarellos (Porto). InnocÍncio considered him "um dos mais respeitaveis, eruditos e fecundos escriptores que Portugal produziu no seculo passado" (I, 247). With a doctorate in canon law, he served as librarian of the University at Coimbra, where he took a significant part in the reorganization of the library, and later at the Bibliotheca Publica de Lisboa, playing a key role in the formation of the future Biblioteca Nacional. Ribeiro dos Santos was, according to Maxwell, @Pombal, a "key figure in the reform of the teaching of canon law at Coimbra and theoretician of regalism in church questions." He was responsible for much of the content of the 8-volume @Memorias de litteratura published by the Real Academia das Sciencias (of which he was a founding member), a translation of Aristotle's @Poetics directly from the Greek, and much more. When Robert Southey made his second visit to Portugal, this "man of rank and of learning" permitted Southey use of his collection and papers (letter to John Rickman from Lisbon, January 30, 1801, in Curry, ed., @New Letters of Robert Southey, I, 240).---- InnocÍncio I, 253 (without collations).
