About this Item

4°, contemporary calf (very worn, spine defective), spine gilt, in a half burgundy morocco slipcase. Woodcut headpieces, initial, factotum and vignettes. Some marginal worming without loss, scattered light soiling and stains; overall very good to fine. Contemporary ownership inscription of Fr. João Baptista de Jesus on title-page. (12 ll.), 255, (1) pp., (1 l.). *** FIRST EDITION of this sermon by a Paulista from a well known "bandeirante" family, who was almost a contemporary of the gold and diamond discoveries in Brazil. The sermon on the Day of Judgment, "em estilo patético," includes a description of a dungeon in the fortress of Santos (p. 15) so terrible that prisoners would beg to be immediately condemned to death rather than awaiting sentencing there, and a description of a prison on the Ilha das Cobras (p. 17) where it was said that Jews condemned by the Inquisition were incarcerated. Both are compared to Hell's torments. Ribeiro de Sequeira preached this sermon throughout Portugal and Brazil for 17 years, and was constantly asked by his listeners for copies of it. A second edition appeared in Lisbon, 1763.Born in Paranahyba (São Paulo), the author trained and practiced as a lawyer before becoming a monk of S. Pedro and serving as missionary to the provinces of Portugal and Spain. Finally he returned to Brazil and founded the seminary of Nuestra Senhora da Lapa in the province of São Paulo, where he died in 1776. Borba points out that this is the only sermon of Ribeiro de Sequeira's to survive - his other published works are orations and devotional books - and this sermon "E portanto obra necessária para se poder apreciar seu estilo."*** Borba de Moraes (1983) II, 789: noting that all the author's works are very rare; Período colonial pp. 339-40. Blake I, 89-90. Innocêncio VIII, 66, 418: without collation, and noting that Barbosa Machado (see IV, 20) does not cite this work. Bosch 214. JCB, Portuguese and Brazilian Books 758/21. Not in Rodrigues or Palha. NUC: CtY, RPJCB; copy described had first 6 leaves mutilated. Bookseller Inventory # 23442
