About this Item

4°, mid-nineteenth-century navy quarter morocco over marbled boards (slight wear to head and foot of spine, corners), smooth spine gilt in Romantic style, marbled endleaves, textblock edges sprinkled blue. Clean and crisp; internally in fine condition. Overall very good. (13 ll.), xiii, 408, 100 pp. *** Second, greatly expanded edition of the first Portuguese bibliography to concentrate on material concerning Portuguese possessions overseas, including America. The first edition - a slim octavo of 151 pages, published Lisbon, 1797 - described several hundred printed and manuscript works chronicling the history of Portugal and its possessions in Asia, Africa, America and the Atlantic. The second edition - a quarto of over 500 pages - is greatly improved, with many corrections as well as additions. Innocêncio found this work still useful when compiling his own Portuguese bibliography more than half a century later. The Bibliotheca historica remains of considerable use for its comments on manuscript accounts - most still unpublished - of the Portuguese settlements in Brazil, Angola, Mozambique and the Moluccas. Also included are content descriptions, brief biographical notes on authors, and author and subject indexes. Pinto de Sousa studied at the University of Coimbra and is believed to have served as a magistrate in one of Portugal's overseas colonies.*** Innocêncio IV, 289. Borba de Moraes (1983) II, 975.
