About this Item

8°, original yellow printed boards (spine faded; slight wear at some extremities). Very good to fine condition. Inscribed on verso of front free endleaf "A // S.A.R. // D. Augusto // Infante di Portogallo // con // profondo ossequio offre // L'autore". Old purple stamp with monogram beneath ducal coronet of the library of the Dukes of Palmela on title page. 125 pp., (1 blank l.). *** FIRST and ONLY EDITIONProvenance: The Infante D. Augusto, i.e. D. Augusto Maria Miguel Gabriel Rafael Agrícola Francisco de Assis Gonzaga Pedro de Alcântara Loiola of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha and Braganza (1847-1889), was the fifth son of Queen Maria II of Portugal and her King consort Ferdinand II. Augusto was created Duke of Coimbra and had the additional title Duke of Saxony through his father. In late 1861 three of his brothers the king Pedro V, Infante D. João, Duke of Beja and Infante D. Fernando all fell ill and died. Despite falling ill himself he survived and became heir presumptive to his brother the new king, D. Luis I on 27 December 1861 following the death of his brother D. João. He remained heir until 28 September 1863 and the birth of Infante D. Carlos the son of king Luis. D. Augusto went on to have a career in the Portuguese Army and would become general of a division. He died in Lisbon unmarried and without issue in 1889, and is buried at the royal pantheon in the Monastery of São Vicente de Fora, Lisbon. The extensive library of the Dukes of Palmela, formed mainly in the nineteenth century, was dispersed, for the most part, during the second quarter of the twentieth century through the 1960s. The first to hold the title was D. Pedro de Sousa Holstein (1781-1850), a Portuguese diplomat who served as prime minister at various times in the 1830s and 1840s. He wrote profusely on politics and economics. (See Grande enciclopédia XX, 123-8.)*** Porbase locates a single copy, in the Biblioteca Nacional de Portugal.
