About this Item

Complete with half-title, frontispiece, illustrations in text, and folding colored map of Portugal. Recently rebound in half-cloth with marbled boards and end-papers; text block is clean with only minor browning, a few pages slightly chipped. The folding map is in excellent condition. Stamp on title: "Sold from the collections of the Long Island Historical Society.". First edition, though portions were previously published in the Fortnightly Review, the New Quarterly Magazine, and Cornhill Magazine. Includes chapters on Portuguese history, literature, and people. As the author states in the preface: "My book is so far nondescript that it is neither a book of history, nor of criticism, nor of pure description; nor an antiquarian work, nor a social or statistical one, nor a book of travel; but it is a medley of all these things." This work is one of three that Crawfurd wrote about Portugal; the Oxford DNB describes the works collectively as "sympathetic but sketchy studies of Portuguese life which are of interest for their accounts of the Portuguese peasantry and rural customs." Crawfurd (1834-1909) was the British consul at Oporto, Portugal, from 1867 until 1891. Bookseller Inventory # 15268
