4°, contemporary decorated wrappers (slight defects at head and foot of spine). Small typographical vignette on title page. Internally fine; overall very good to fine condition. 85 pp. *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION of this vehement and multifaceted attack on the Companhia Geral da Agricultura das Vinhas do Alto Douro, often referred to as the Real Companhia Velha. On pp. 80-3 the anonymous author attacks the Company's exclusive rights in Brazil. The Portuguese government had been heavily involved in the wine trade since 1756, when the Marquês de Pombal established the Companhia, partly in an effort to limit long-standing British influence on the Port wine trade. It officially delineated the boundaries of the Douro wine region, regulated exports of Port, set production limits and prices, and was sole arbiter in disputes between producers and shippers. It also held a monopoly on the sale of brandy, used in the fortification process for making Port wine, and on the sale of the grape distillates bagaço or bagaceira (similar to grappa), which were sold in taverns in Porto and elsewhere, mostly for consumption by common people. Before the Companhia was finally dismantled in 1853, a number of attempts were made to reduce its influence, especially by liberals in sympathy with the middle and lower classes.*** Innocêncio VI, 196.
