About this Item

8°, recent half crimson Oasis over marbled boards, spine with gilt letter, fillets in blind, and raised bands in five compartments, original illustrated wrappers bound in. Browning, mostly very light, but more pronounced near edges. Uncut. Overall in good to very good condition. 216 pp. *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION of this book of poems.Afonso Lopes Vieira (Leiria, 1878-Lisbon, 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, S. Pedro de Moel, became a haven for artists, musicians and writers. He also traveled extensively in Europe and North Africa, and reminiscences of these travels often appear in his works.The author'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 review Lusitânia, of which Lopes Vieira served as secretary. He also wrote works for children, e.g, Animais nossos amigos, 1911, and Canto infantil, 1912.*** Innocêncio XXII, 23; see also pp. 22-5, 511-2; XX, 95, 311.
