About this Item

8°, contemporary bluish-grey plain wrappers (spine defective; chipped and dampstained). Light browning. In very good condition. xi, 78 pp., (1 blank l.). *** FIRST EDITION of this refutation of Ferreira Cardoso da Costa's Observações, London 1811. In the Observações, Ferreira Cardoso da Costa, a native of Bahia and noted jurisconsult, attacked the Portuguese government for having imprisoned several Portuguese citizens, including himself, on charges of being French sympathizers; the prisoners were condemned to exile and deported to Ilha Terceira. In this Explicação, the anonymous author refutes the Observações point by point, with substantial documentation and criticism of Ferreira Cardoso da Costa's logic. There is some discussion of the Prince Regent's actions while in Brazil. Ferreira Cardoso da Costa replied with O author da Explicação imparcial das Observações a Gazeta desencantado, e defendido, London 1813, which began with a reprint of the Explicação imparcial.*** Ayres Magalhães de Sepúlveda, Dicionário bibliográfico da Guerra Peninsular I, 417. Biblioteca Pública de Braga, Catálogo do Fundo Barca-Oliveira, p. 142. Innocêncio VII, 429: without imprint or collation. Cf. Borba de Moraes (1983) I, 223: citing Ferreira Cardoso da Costa's Observações, London 1811, and his O author da Explicação Imparcial das Observações á Gazeta desencantado, e defendido, London 1813, which reprinted the Explicação. Not in Fonseca, Pseudónimos. Porbase locates two copies, one in the Biblioteca Nacional de Portugal, the other in the Biblioteca João Paulo II-Universidade Católica Portuguesa (assigning the work to the London printer W. Lewis); neither record mentions the preliminary leaves. Copac repeats British Library only. Not located in NUC. Bookseller Inventory # 21320
