A special copy on thick paper. Occasional foxing. In very good to fine condition. (4 ll.), 211 pp. *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION of the author's first book. An extensive analysis and generally favorable criticism of this poem by Candido José Xavier appeared in Annaes das Sciencias e Artes, volume X, part 1. Almeida Garrett, in his "Bosquejo histórico" at the beginning of volume I of the Parnaso lusitano, on page lxvi, praises it effusively. In general, later critics have been more reserved.Mousinho de Albuquerque (1792-1846), became a colonel in the army engineering corps, Provador da Casa da Moeda, where he lectured on physics and chemistry, Governor of Madeira, Inspector of Public Works, deputy in various legislatures, and minister in several constitutional governments. An active proponent of the liberal cause, he died at Torres Vedras of a bullet wound in the Lutas da Patuleia. A member of the Academia Real das Sciencias de Lisboa, his textbook Curso elementar de física e química (5 volumes, Lisbon 1824) is said to be the first such complete work in Portuguese, while Ideas sobre o estabelecimento da instrução em Portugal (Paris 1823) was a comprehensive plan for university reform.*** Innocêncio V, 324; on the author see also V, 323; VII, 127; and XVI, 71.
