Folio (29.7 x 21 cm.), disbound, text-block edges rouged. Woodcut Portuguese royal arms on title page. Text in two columns in Portuguese and English. In very good condition. 8 pp. *** Portuguese printing of this treaty, one of the Strangford agreements, first published in Rio de Janeiro in 1810 and also published in Lisbon that year. Strangford's able negotiations earned for Great Britain a stranglehold on Brazilian trade. The present convention calls for a monthly mail packet to sail between Falmouth and Rio de Janeiro. On the outward journey the ship is to touch at Madeira, but not to weigh anchor, nor remain any longer than necessary for delivering and receiving the mail. The packets are to be British, but Portugal reserves the right to establish Brazilian or Portuguese packets. The parties agree to endeavor to prevent contraband, particularly diamonds, Brazilwood, gold dust, urzela, and tobacco in the form of snuff. *** Not located in Ayres Magalhães de Sepúlveda, Dicionário bibliográfico da Guerra Peninsular. See Manchester, British Preëminence in Brazil, pp. 80-90. This edition not in JCB, Portuguese and Brazilian Books. No edition located in Porbase!? No edition located in Copac!?.
