About this Item

10 numbers + 2 supplements. Large 4° (24 x 20 cm., with some slight variations from issue to issue), original illustrated wrappers. Numerous illustrations. Supplements are on green paper. A very good set. 40; 40; 40; 40; 40; 48; 78; 84; 80 pp., (2 ll.); 76 pp. + supplements of (2); (2) ll. *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION, apparently a complete run. Numbers 1 through 10, published March 1980 through September 1986. Supplement 1, undated, of two unnumbered leaves, is tipped into issue number 8. Supplement number 2, bound in at the end of issue number 9, is dated July 1984, and also consists of 2 unnumbered leaves. We think this is a complete run. Included are original poems, previously unpublished, as well as essays about poetry, poets, literature and art.Sílex was said to be a "publicação bimestral" (with the exception of the seventh and ninth issues, which say "semestral"), and the first five numbers were indeed issued bimonthly from March through November 1980. The sixth number appeared in July 1981, the seventh in November 1982, the eighth in July 1983, the ninth in October 1984, and the tenth in September 1986. The Directores (i.e., publishers) were Artur Lucena, Henrique Madeira, Monteiro Pote, and Nuno Nozelos, while the editorial board consisted of Alexandre O'Neill, António Ramos Rosa, and João Rui de Sousa. After issue number 6, Monteiro Pote's name is no longer on the masthead, while for issue number 10, Artur Lucena is the lone "Director", with Henrique Madeira and José Manuel Capelo listed as "Subdirectores".
