About this Item

8°, contemporary limp vellum, text-block edges sprinkled. Numerous woodcut headpieces. Single woodcut tailpiece at end. Very minor worming to a few leaves at inner margins. Small repair to leaf G3, slightly affecting the woodcut headpiece, but not the text. Overall clean, crisp, and in very good condition. (12 ll.), 100 pp., (2 ll.). *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION. Contains an account of the life and miracles of St. Gaetano dei Conti di Tiene told in 100 sonnets. There is also an unnumbered concluding sonnet. The preliminary leaves include an index, a sonnet in Latin by Raphael Bluteau, Latin epigrams by Carlo Cazeniga and António Luís Azevedo, a sonnet in Spanish by Juan Pereyra de Sylva, a sonnet in Italian by Carlo Cazeniga, and an octava in Portuguese dedicated to St. Gaetano Tiene. The noted lyric poet André Nunes da Silva (or Andre Nunez da Sylva, 1630-1705), author of Poesias varias (Lisbon, 1671), a member of the Academia de los Singulares (see Maria Luísa Malato Borralho in Biblos, I, 35), and a contributor to the two volume Academia dos Singulares, the Applausos da victoria do Ameixial, and the five volume Fenix renascida, was a native of Lisbon (not of Rio de Janeiro, as was sometimes stated). He did spend much of his youth in Rio, and was educated by the Jesuits there. Nunes da Silva had a degree in cannon law from Coimbra University, and was a secular priest. *** Arouca S354.
