About this Item

4 volumes. Folio (27.5 x 19.3 cm.), recent crimson half morocco over marbled boards, spine with raised bands in five compartments, gilt letter, original printed wrappers bound in. A fine set, uncut and partially unopened. (40 ll.), port., 767 pp., (1 l.); (4 ll.), 926 pp., (2 ll.); (2 ll.), 798 pp., (2 ll.); (4 ll.), 721 pp., (3 ll.). *** Facsimile reprint of the original 1741-59 edition. The author was "incontestably the greatest Portuguese bibliographer. His Bibliotheca lusitana forms the basis of all Portuguese bibliography . The confidence with which he wrote and the exactitude of the biographical facts make these four folios an indispensable reference work even today" (Borba de Moraes [1983] II, 969). Because it covers Portuguese authors writing in Portuguese or any other language (especially Latin and Spanish), the Bibliotheca lusitana is not superseded by Innocêncio, who deals mainly with works in Portuguese. *** Breslauer and Folter 100 (for the original edition). Borba de Moraes (1983), II, 968-9. Cf. Jorge Peixoto, Bibliografia analítica das bibliografias portuguesas 330 (for the second edition, 1930-1935). Bookseller Inventory # 3688
