About this Item

8°, original illustrated wrappers (very slight foxing and soiling to covers). Illustrations by the author in text and on front cover. Very light browning. Overall in very good to fine, uncut, mostly unopened condition. Illustrated lithograph bookplate of A.[lfredo] Ribeiro dos Santos (larger version). 310 pp., (1 blank l., 2 ll.). *** FIRST EDITION of the author's first novel, which was awarded the Prémio Fernão Mendes Pinto, a prize he won a second time for his volume of short stories, O Galo que Cantou na Baía (1959). His novel Os Flagelados do Vento Leste (1960), was awarded the Prémio Meio Milénio do Achamento de Cabo Verde, and was made into a rather successful film, directed by António Faria (1987). Manuel [António dos Santos] Lopes (Island of São Vicente [or, according to some, the Island of Santiago; others say the Island of São Nicolau], Cabo Verde 1907-Lisbon 2005), was an African poet, novelist, short story writer and essayist who portrayed the struggle of his people to live in a land besieged by drought, famine, and unemployment. Lopes studied at Coimbra University, then returned to Cabo Verde. In 1944 he was employed by Western Telegraph, and in 1951 was transferred to the Açores. Subsequently he worked in Portugal, where he continued to live after retirement. He was one of the founders, along with Baltasar Lopes da Silva and Jorge Barbosa, and the first editor of the journal Claridade, which in 1936 gave birth to modern Cape Verdean literature. *** Moser & Ferreira, Bibliografia das Literaturas Africanas de Expressão Portuguesa, p. 150.
