This detailed defense of the Companhia Geral da Agricultura das Vinhas do Alto Douro first appeared in an edition of 67 pp. in 1814. The present edition is considerably expanded, with corrections.Provenance: We have not been able to discover anything about António R. Passos (fl. late ninteenth- and / or early twentieth-century), but over the years have seen many books bearing his signature. They are invariably interesting volumes, in above average condition, dealing mainly with agricultural products or minerals and their application in commerce. He must have been an astute and discerning book buyer and bibliophile.*** Kress, Luso-Brazilian Economic Literature Before 1850, p. 15.
