About this Item

See Bell, Portuguese Literature, pp. 295-9, et passim; Saraiva & Lopes, História da literatura portuguesa (17th ed.), pp. 813-32, et passim; José-Augusto França in Machado, ed., Dicionário de literatura portuguesa, pp. 112-5; Aníbal de Castro in Biblos, I, 864-79; Dicionário cronológico de autores portuguese, II, 112-8: "O nosso maior prosador do século XIX e porventura também o nosso maior ficcionista de todos os tempos, Camilo Castelo Branco é possívelmente o mais lido dos escritores portugueses ." Provenance: most probably D. José de Saldanha Oliveira e Souza, who also used the name José Luiz de Saldanha (1839-1912), was a son of D. João de Saldanha Oliveira Juzarte Figueira e Sousa, 3º conde de Rio Maior, and brother of António José Luís de Saldanha Oliveira Juzarte Figueira e Sousa, 4º conde and 1º marquês de Rio Maior. A chemist and mineralogist, parliamentary deputy, and high government official, he studied mathematics and philosophy at Coimbra University, wrote on subjects as varied as agriculture, finance, and engravings, and amassed an important library. He was a devoted proponent of progress in the national agricultural sector, which he considered one of the primary sources of public wealth. See Grande enciclopédia XIX, 402; Innocêncio XIII, 66-7; Aditamentos, pp. 254-5. The Casa da Anunciada library of the counts of Rio Maior was one of the best private libraries ever formed in Portugal. It was dispersed for the most part not long after the April 1974 Portuguese revolution.*** Santos, Revista bibliográfica camiliana 53 (without mention of the advertisement leaves at the end): "poucas vezes aparece á venda".
