About this Item

Octagonal blue stamp of Livraria Antiga e Moderna just below and to the right. xxxii, 373 pp. Page 366 numbered correctly (sometimes wrongly numbered 356). *** Third edition of this eighteenth-century masterpiece of prose and forerunner of the modern novel of ideas. First published in 1752, this edition was edited by Silva de Eça's son, who made many changes. It is the first to contain the "Carta sobre a fortuna" (pp. 326-68), which Silva de Eça had left in manuscript.A native of São Paulo, Silva de Eça spent most of his adult life in Portugal. This work on the themes of Ecclesiastes is his principal work, and one of the few notable prose works written by a Brazilian in the latter half of the 18th century. In 1920 Solidonio Leite published a facsimile of the first edition, calling the public's attention to the literary significance of this forgotten classic and reestablishing Silva de Eça's reputation as a man of Brazilian letters.Silva de Eça was the brother of Brazil's first female novelist, Teresa Margarida da Silva e Orta, author of Aventuras de Diofanes (1752). *** Borba de Moraes, I, 240; (rev. ed., 1983) I, 283-4; Período colonial, p. 127.
