About this Item

12°, contemporary quarter dark green sheep over marbled boards (slight wear to corners, head of spine), flat spine gilt, text-block edges sprinkled green. Overall in fine condition. Paper label (partially defective) pasted near head of spine. x, 62 pp. *** Third edition of this satire aimed at the professors of the University of Coimbra, among others. It was circulating anonymously in manuscript as early as 1785, and caused an enormous scandal. It did not appear in print until 1818, and then in Paris. José Bonifacio de Andrada e Silva is said to have collaborated in it. Editions later appeared with imprints of Hamburg [i.e. Paris], 1820; Paris, 1821; Lisbon, 1833; Barcellos, 1868; and Rio de Janeiro, 1910. It was also included in the sixth volume of the Parnaso Lusitano, Paris 1834.Mello Franco, born in Minas Geraes in 1757, practiced medicine in Lisbon until 1817, then returned to Brazil. For his liberal writings and associations he spent several years in the dungeons of the Inquisition. His Tratado da educação fysica dos meninos, Lisbon 1790, is the first work by a Brazilian on pediatrics. His Medicina theologica, ou supplica humilde, Lisbon 1794, the first book in Portuguese on psychosomatic medicine, led him to be called a precursor of Freud.*** Borba de Moraes (1983) I, 322; Período colonial p. 145. Blake III, 44-7. Innocêncio III, 10: giving 1819 as the date of the first edition. Ramos, A edição da lingua portuguesa em França (1800-1850) 43 (incorrectly giving the same collation as for the 1818 edition). Bookseller Inventory # 36056
