About this Item

8°, early wrappers (detached, spine mostly gone). Some scattered browning and spotting. Overall in good condition. Early signature on front wrapper. Old tag with blue border and shelfmark (5731) on upper wrapper. 99 pp. *** Second edition of Algumas palavras, with an appendix (pp. 81-98) on events that occurred since the publication of the first edition in 1831. It gives important information on Anglo-Portuguese relations at a crucial period in Brazilian history. The first section is an examination of the Anglo-Portuguese Treaty of 1810, English negotiations regarding Brazilian independence, Sir Charles Stuart's special mission to Lisbon and Rio de Janeiro to negotiate a settlement for the separation of Rio de Janeiro, etc. The second section discusses the political and economic relations between England, Portugal, Brazil and Europe, with particular emphasis on revolutions, treaties and trade (especially the wine trade).Araujo Carneiro (1776-1849), a Portuguese physician, fled to London when the French invaded. There he contributed to every issue of the enormously influential Correio Brasiliense, 1808-1822, and corresponded regularly with D. João. In 1812 he shocked society by eloping with the Marchioness de Alorna's daughter, who died soon thereafter. Although he was appointed chargé d'affaires to Switzerland in 1818, the Portuguese ministers refused to grant him a travel allowance, and he never reached his post. Soon afterwards he fell out of favor with D. João, and eventually became a follower of D. Miguel, who named him Visconde de Condeixa.*** Innocêncio X, 2: citing only the second edition in Portuguese.
