Book 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.

Book Description: , , Dated 1893, 1910, and 1910. ., 1910. All written in ink, in a small, legible hand. 3 leaves plus 2 envelopes (one with a postage stamp). 4°, folded. Folded. Overall in very good to fine condition. ---- The page dated 2 January 1893 bears a 4-line poem entitled, "Depois de reler uma pagina en Latino Coelho." José Maria Latino Coelho (1825-1891) was a Portuguese writer, journalist, soldier, and politician, a contemporary with whom Bulhão Pato was well acquainted. With the poem is a stamped envelope addressed to Julio Dantas (1876-1962), physician, playwright, poet, journalist, diplomat and academic, who remains one of the best-known modern Portuguese writers.The letter and the second poem, "O Cemiterio do Monte" (18 lines), apparently go together, along with the envelope addressed to D. Adelaide Moreira (stamp excised). The poem is dated 29 January 1910. The letter, dated 1910 and addressed to "Minha Senhora e Querida Amiga," refers rather elliptically to an ongoing battle that is wearing him out.Bulhão Pato (1829?1912), a native of Bilbao whose father was Portuguese, mother Spanish, was one of the most important Portuguese authors of the Romantic school; his works include @Poesias (1850), @Paquita (1856), and @Versos (1862). He published his first volume of poetry at age 17, astounding the literati by his individuality of style and unaffected simplicity of form. Bulhão Pato translated into Portuguese Shakespeare's @Merchant of Venice and @Hamlet, as well as Victor Hugo's @Ruy Blas.Influenced by Lord Byron and Lamartine, Bulhão Pato was a friend and protégé of the historian, poet and historical novelist Alexandre Herculano. He was also a friend of Almeida Garrett, and later of Eça de Queiroz (whose caricature of Bulhão Pato in @Os Maias, in the form of the poet Tomás de Alencar, provoked a heated polemic), Ramalho Ortigão, and Colombano Bordalo Pinheiro. His name has been given to a classic of Portuguese cookery, @Ameijoas ao Bulhão Pato (clams in a sauce of garlic, butter and parsley).---- On Bulhão Pato, see Innocêncio VII, 50; XVIII, 157; Bell, @Portuguese Literature pp. 302-3; and Saraiva & Lopes, @História da literatura portuguesa (1976) pp. 818-9.
