About this Item

8°, original beige printed wrappers (slightly spotted). Title page printed in red and black. Uncut. In very good to fine condition. Author's signed five-line presentation inscription to Júlio Fonseca on recto of initial blank leaf. (1 blank l.), 141 pp., (3, 1 blank ll.). *** FIRST EDITION. A second edition appeared in 1968.Physician, political figure, poet, short story writer, dramatist and historian, Jaime [Zuzarte] Cortesão (Ançã, Cantanhede 1884-Lisbon 1960) was the brother of the historian Armando Cortesão and son of the philologist António Augusto Cortesão. Fernando Pessoa called him "O primeiro dos poetas da novíssima geração" (p. [8]). Elected parliamentary deputy from Porto, then served as a captain in the medical corps during World War I. With Leonardo Coimbra and other intellectuals he founded the review Nova Silva in 1907. In 1910 he collaborated with Teixeira de Pascoaes to found Águia. In 1912 Cortesão established the review Renascença Portuguesa, which he abandoned in 1921 to become one of the founders of Seara Nova. In 1919 he became director of the Biblioteca Nacional, a post from which he was fired in 1927 for presiding over the Junta Revolucionária established in Porto in a failed attempt to topple the military dictatorship. During his tenure there he had been perhaps the leading light of the "Grupo da Biblioteca Nacional" which included Raul Proença, Álvaro Pinto, Paxcoaes, António Sérgio, Aquilino Ribeiro, Raul Brandão, Leite de Vasconcelos, and Malheiro Dias. From 1927 until 1940 Cortesão lived in exile in France; when the Nazis invaded, he fled to Brazil, where he taught the history of the Portuguese discoveries at the university level in Rio de Janeiro. Returning to Portugal in 1957, he became involved in the presidential campaign of general Humberto Delgado, which resulted in him spending four days in prison in 1958, along with António Sérgio, Vieira de Almeida and Azevedo Gomes. That year he was elected President of the Sociedade Portuguesa de Escritores.*** Almeida Marques 735 (the present copy).
