About this Item

4°, contemporary crimson quarter sheep (minor wear at head and foot of spine; somewhat more worn at corners), flat spine with gilt fillets and gilt author, short title, green endleaves. Small wood engraved vignette of a lyre flanked by laurel branches on title page. Wood engraved vignettes at the end of each poem. Final three leaves neatly reinforced at inner margin. Some small, light stains in first gathering. Overall in good to very good condition. 339 [i.e. 253] pp., (2 ll.), with errors in pagination: pp. 167-176, 201-254, 281-300; 305-6 completely omitted; pp. [51]-52, 71-72, and 105-108 are bound between pp. 154 and 155, but the content appears correctly placed. *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION. The author (1817-1881), was a native of Caxias, Maranhão, and had received a degree from the Law Faculty at Olinda. He settled in São Luís do Maranhão, practiced law there, and took part in the politics, culture, and press of that provincial capital. He was also a customs official, an officer in the national guard, and an officer in the Ordem da Rosa of the Brazilian Empire.Despite the weird pagination, and equally weird collation by signatures, we are fairly certain that the present work is complete.Among the poems are those titled "Ao dixar o Brasil", Bonaparte em Waterloo", "A Borbuleta, flor", "Á Polonia", "Ao Oceano", and "To die, -to sleep". On p. [255] is a divisional title "Notas ás inspirações poeticas"; these notes continue to p. 280. There is a divisional title, "A Duqueza de Bragança. Poema" on p. [301]. The poem continues to p. 331, and is followed by another divisional title, on p. [333], "Notas á Duqueza de Bragança". The notes end on p. 339. The penultimate leaf contains a table of contents, while the final leaf has errata on the recto, and an Advertencia on the verso.*** Innocêncio III, 100: calling for 344 pp. Blake III, 157 pp.: calling for 344 pp. Porbase locates a single copy, in the Biblioteca Nacional de Portugal.
