About this Item

8°, contemporary quarter sheep over marbled boards (wear to corners; other very minor wear), spine gilt and decorated in blind with raised bands in five compartments, gilt letter in second compartment from head, marbled endleaves, text block edges sprinkled blue. Half title and title page with light browning and very slight dampstains at outer edges. Overall in very good condition. 257 pp., (1 l.). *** FIRST EDITION? The author, a native of Itaborahy, Rio de Janeiro (1832-1903), earned a degree from the Faculdade de Medicina in Rio de Janeiro. He practiced medicine until 1863, when he began teaching history. He wrote about three dozen books and articles, including fiction, biography, and history.*** Blake VI, 61-3 (gives date as 1872, with 261 pp., without mentioning printer or publisher). Innocêncio XVI, 177 (imprint and collation conform to the present copy). Whittem & Raphael, Tentative Bibliography of Braz. Belles-Lettres p. 116 (citing only the 189 pp. edition, with an imprint Garnier Irmãos, and dating it [19--?]). No edition located in Porbase (which cites five other works by the author). Copac lists a single copy only of this title, in the British Library, of what may be the same edition. WorldCat lists what appears to be a later edition [but giving a date of 1872?; perhaps in error], with 189 pp., at Harvard University [Hollis lists this edition without date], University of Texas [online catalogue does not give a date], University of São Paulo, and Latrobe University, Bundoora, Victoria, Australia.
