About this Item

4°, disbound. Woodcut ornament on title page, woodcut headpiece, initial, and tailpiece. Clean and crisp. Overall in good to very good condition. 14 pp., (1 blank l.). *** FIRST EDITION; it appeared also in the Collecção dos documentos da Academia Real, 1721. Sousa, who had been discussing the matter with D. João V, here publicly proposes the formation of an Academia da História Ecclesiastica that would aim to write scholarly histories of Portugal and its dominions, for both the secular and ecclesiastical realms. He also sketches out the topics that should be of immediate concern. The institution was established by command of D. João in 1720 under the name Academia Real da História Portuguesa. Sousa became a founding member and the Academia's first director. The Academia, which flourished in the 1720s and 1730s, was thereafter less active, finally being disbanded in 1776. It was the precursor of today's Academia das Ciências de Lisboa, founded in 1780 as the Academia Real das Sciencias de Lisboa. The Academia Portuguesa de História, founded in 1936, claims to be its successor.Manoel Caetano de Sousa (Lisbon, 1658-1734), illegitimate son of D. Francisco de Sousa, captain of the Guarda Alemã, was educated by his grandmother D. Leonor de Mello and in 1676 became a clerigo regular theatino. In 1709, he was chosen to assist at the Capitulo Geral in Rome, taking the opportunity to visit the city's great libraries. He was known as a vastly erudite man, publishing (according to Innocêncio) nearly 300 works in Portuguese and Latin.*** Innocêncio V, 384: without collation. Barbosa Machado III, 203; on the author, see III, 200-1. Porbase locates a single copy, at Biblioteca Nacional de Portugal. Not located in Copac. Bookseller Inventory # 38271
