About this Item

4°, later purple pebbled wrappers, with contemporary decorated wrappers bound in. Woodcut Brazilian-Portuguese royal arms on title page. Occasional minor soiling and a few small, light stains. Overall in very good condition. 67 pp. *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION of this interesting pamphlet concerning the controversial and last colonial governor of Pernambuco. Having distinguished himself in the Peninsular War, Luiz do Rego Barreto (1777-1840) went to Brazil in 1816 and was dispatched the following year to Pernambuco, which at the time was in armed rebellion against the central government in Rio de Janeiro. Rego Barreto calmed the insurrection and established a new legal order, but was toppled by his political enemies in 1821. When he returned to Portugal he was called upon to defend his actions in Pernambuco; a Memoria justificativa was drawn up on his behalf (see Borba de Moraes II, 555). Continuing his defense, this Elogio supports its praise of Rego Barreto with 32 pages of notes and documents, including accounts of the revolution in Goyanna, contemporary newspaper stories, letters from Pernambuco and a letter of 8 December 1821 to the "Soberano Congreso" in Lisbon from passengers on a ship recently arrived from Pernambuco. Rego Barreto was eventually created first Visconde de Geraz-do-Lima.*** Borba de Moraes (1983) I, 335. JCB, Portuguese and Brazilian Books 822/24 (acquired from us in 1995).
