About this Item

8°, contemporary tree sheep (foot of spine slightly defective; other minor wear to extremities), flat spine gilt in romantic style, dark green morocco lettering piece, gilt letter, marbled endleaves. Good to very good condition. x, 190 pp. *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION of this collection of essays. Chapters are titled "Alma e arte nova"; "Um drama allemão em palco portuguez"; "Uma poetisa brazileira"; "Na platéa"; "Em Mafra"; "Um poeta hespanhol"; "Uma estrêa"; "Um novo poeta"; "Um poeta brasileiro" (about Gonçalves Crespo); and "Actores e actrizes". Luciano Cordeiro's work as a literary and theater critic, though largely neglected today, is of considerable significance. He contributed to, founded or served as editor of various newspapers and reviews. Considered a member of the "Geração de 70" along with Antero de Quental, Oliveira Martins, and Teófilo Braga, Cordeiro was influential in introducing German and French literary doctrines to Portugal. Luciano [Baptista] Cordeiro [de Sousa], a native of Mirandela, Trás-os-montes who spent most of his early years in Madeira (1844-1900), was a Portuguese author, literary critic, historian, geographer, and politician. He founded the Sociedade Geografica de Lisboa in 1876, and was very actively involved with that institution. As a parliamentary deputy he represented Mogadouro in the legislature of 1882-1884, and Leiria in that of 1884. In addition to various government posts relating to education, he was administrator, on behalf of the government, of the Companhia dos Caminhos de Ferro da Zambézia, and defended Portuguese interests in Africa at the Colonial Geographical Congress in Paris in 1878, and the Berlim Conference of 1884.*** Innocêncio XIII, 325 (giving an incomplete collation, without mention of the x preliminary pp.); on the author see also pp. 322-7; Aditamentos, p. 267.
