Description:

8°, contemporary navy quarter morocco (some wear and minor defects), spine gilt. Light soiling and offsetting from the portrait on the title-page. Some foxing. In good condition. Old purple stamp of the Duke of Palmela, with ducal coronet above monogram, as well as that of J. Biker on title-page. Portrait, (2 ll.), liv pp., (1 l.), 377 pp. *** First edition of this collection, arranged by type of letter (thank you, compliment, sympathy, recommendation, praise, exhortation, etc.) so that the letters may be more readily used as models by Portuguese youth. A later edition was published Paris, 1856.Vieira (1608-1697) is described by Boxer as "certainly the most remarkable man in the seventeenth-century Luso-Brazilian world" (A Great Luso-Brazilian Figure: Padre António Vieira, S.J., p. 4). Born in Lisbon, he moved to Bahia as a child and there became a Jesuit novice in 1623. By 1635, when he was ordained, he was already famous as a preacher, and when the Dutch withdrew from Brazil it was he who was chosen to preach the victory sermon. Vieira, a trusted advisor of D. João IV, was sent by him on diplomatic missions to France, Holland and Rome. Beginning in 1652 he spent nine years as a missionary in Maranhão, where he vehemently defended the rights of the Indians against the colonists who wanted to enslave them. As a result, the colonists managed to have him and all the other Jesuits in Pará and Maranhão deported in 1661. Back in Lisbon, his campaign for toleration of the New Christians (crypto-Jews) and his Sebastianist beliefs led to his trial by the Inquisition-he was found guilty, but the ascension of the future D. Pedro II as regent in 1668 led to his release. Vieira?s status as a diplomat and missionary would guarantee his letters a place in Portuguese history, but his style and content are also exceptional: his letters and state-papers are invaluable sources for the period, and his sermons are as readable today as they were in the seventeenth century. Pessoa dubbed him "O Imperador da lingua portuguesa" (quoted in Boxer, ibid., p. 3).Provenance: The extensive library of the Dukes of Palmela, formed mainly in the nineteenth century, was dispersed, for the most part, during the second quarter of the twentieth century through the 1960s. The first to hold the title was D. Pedro de Sousa Holstein (1781-1850), a Portuguese diplomat who served as prime minister at various times in the 1830s and 1840s. He wrote profusely on politics and economics. (See Grande enciclopedia XX, 123-8.) Júlio Firmino Júdice Biker (1814-1899) was a career official of the Portuguese Foreign Ministry, bibliophile, collector, and editor of numerous important volumes of diplomatic and historical documents.*** Leite IX, 302: calling for a portrait and only liv, 377 pp. Innocêncio XXII, 378. Ramos, A edição da língua portuguesa em França (1800-1850) 340: calling for only liv, 377 pp. Not in JCB, Portuguese and Brazilian Books. NUC: IU, MH, NN, NIC. Bookseller Inventory #
