Small armorial blindstamp on title of J.[osé] C.[aetano] Mazziotti Salema Garção. 60, 346 pp., (1 l.). *** First and only Portuguese translation of Arte magica annichilata (Verona, 1754), arguing that there is no such thing as magic, and discussing as well diabolic powers, witches, etc. The 60-page preface by the translator cites numerous secular and religious authorities on the question of whether magic exists. Maffei (1675-1755) wrote many works for the Italian stage before devoting himself to the archaeology of his native Verona. The results of his researches appeared in Verona illustrata (Verona, 1731-32).Provenance: J.[osé] C.[aetano] Mazziotti Salema Garção (1886-1961) of Porto was a noted collector and wolfram magnate.*** Gonçalves Rodrigues, A tradução em Portugal 1454: incorrectly calling for 66, 346, 11 pp. For the bookplate, see Avelar Duarte, Ex-libris portugueses heráldicos 750.
