About this Item

8°, contemporary limp vellum (slight gnawing at edges). Woodcut of Virgin with Infant Jesus on title page. Typographical headpieces. Woodcut initial. Woodcut tailpiece. Minor worming in upper outer blank margin of final 67 leaves, just touching text in a few instances, but never affecting it. Overall in good to very good condition. 276 pp. *** First and only Porto edition? The author, a secular priest and Latin teacher, was born in Mação, in the province of Extremadura. These additions to the famous grammar of the Jesuit Manuel Alvares seem to have first appeared in Lisbon, 1619, according to Innocêncio, who cites in the first volume of his massive biographical and bibliographical dictionary subsequent editions of Lisbon 1623, Lisbon 1665, Lisbon 1671 (the existence of which he was doubtful), Lisbon 1677, Lisbon 1694, Lisbon 1710, Coimbra 1713, Lisbon 1736, and Coimbra 1746. In the eight volume he adds editions of Coimbra, 1672 or 1673, 1738, and 1748. The present edition is not cited. The number of editions attests to the utility of this textbook to students of the Latin language.*** Barbosa Machado I, 477-8 (does not mention the present edition). This edition not cited by Innocêncio; see I, 337 and VIII, 428. Porbase cites editions of Lisbon 1643, Coimbra 1659, Coimbra 1672, Coimbra 1693, Lisbon 1694, Coimbra 1713, Lisbon 1720, Coimbra 1748, and Lisbon 1752. Bookseller Inventory # 36474
