About this Item

Folio (29.7 x 20 cm.), disbound, mounted in a cardboard folder. Caption title, 9-line woodcut initial with later hand coloring. Very good. 1 l. [paginated 451-2; apparently extracted from a volume of laws]. *** This royal decree censoring Guillaume Thomas François Raynal's Histoire philosophique et politique, which first appeared anonymously in Amsterdam, 1770, includes a long list of the work's supposed flaws; e.g., "Que o seu Author he hum daquelles Homens extraordinarios, que . espalham como por systema o mortifero veneno de suas libertinagens, não perdendo occasião de preparar capciosos laços aos espiritos fracos, e á mocidade inadvertida ." The original edition is not mentioned, it being stated that the work was published without the author's name in six octavo volumes in Amsterdam, 1772, and reprinted in 1773. No person, of whatever station, is permitted to possess this book; anyone having the book is obliged to turn it over to the secretary of the Tribunal da Real Meza Censoria.*** Porbase locates a copy at Biblioteca Nacional de Portugal (calling for [3] pp.).
