About this Item: Lisbon, Editora Arcádia, 1972., 1972. 8°, publisher's buckram with dust jacket (jacket slightly frayed, especially at head of spine, and with some discoloration). Water damage to rear wrapper. Still, in good condition; fine internally. Author's presentation copy with signed four-line inscription on recto of front free endleaf: "Ao Américo," // fraternalmente [?] // o // Hernâni Cidade". 449 pp. *** Third edition, "revista e ampliada".Hernâni [António] Cidade (Redondo 1887-Évora 1975) is best known as an author of literary and cultural history and of literary biography. For a half century, he was a major force in the cultural life of Portugal. Cidade taught school in Coimbra, Leiria, Porto and Lisbon before moving on to an illustrious career in higher education at the Universities of Porto and Lisbon. In his youth Cidade was linked to the modernist movement, having been involved with the reviews Águia and Seara Nova, among others. He also collaborated in reviews such as those of the Faculdades de Letras of both Lisbon and Porto, newspapers (especially O Primeiro de Janeiro), and numerous collective projects such as the Grande enciclopédia portuguesa e brasileira and Dicionário de literatura. With Joaquim de Carvalho and Mário de Azevedo Gomes he edited the Diário liberal (Lisbon, 1934-1935); with Reynaldo dos Santos and Bernardo Marques he founded Colóquio - revista de artes e letras (1959-1970), and with Jacinto do Prado Coelho, in 1971, Colóquio / Letras (these last two published by the Gulbenkian Foundation).Provenance: Américo Cortez Pinto (1896-1979), physician, writer, poet and historian, native of the freguesia de Cortes in the concelho de Leiria. "Zezinha" is probably his wife. Américo Cortez Pinto studied at Coimbra, interned at Leira, served as a parliamentary deputy, a member of the Lisbon municipal council, and inspector of health studies, among other posts. He contributed to literary reviews such as A Tradição, Contemporânea, A Galera, Letras e Artes, and Ícaro, of which he was one of the founders, along with Ernesto Gonçalves, Cabral do Nascimento, and Luís Vieira de Castro. In addition to a considerable output of poetry, prose, literary and historical works, he is best known for the polemical Da famosa arte da imprimissão: da imprensa em Portugal às cruzadas d'Além-Mar (1948), in which he defended the priority of Leiria in Portuguese Christian typography. While Chaves currently is agreed to have been the earliest Portuguese Christian printing site, Cortez Pinto's investigations and conclusions regarding the diffusion of printing in Africa and Asia by the Portuguese remain valuable. Hernâni Cidade was one of Cortez Pinto's closest friends. Others were Afonso Lopes Vieira, Carlos Queiroz, Lino António, António José Saraiva, Sebastião Pestana, and Mário Saa. On Cortez Pinto, see Paulo J. Pedrosa S. Gomes in Biblos, IV, 179-80; also Dicionário cronológico de authores portugueses, III, 501-3; and Grande enciclopédia, VII, 818 and Actualização III, 498.*** See Álvaro Manuel Machado, Dicionário de literatura portuguesa, p. 128; Maria de Lourdes Belchior in Biblos I, 1132-4; Dicionário cronológico de autores portugueses, III, 344-5; Grande enciclopedia VI, 751; Actualização III, 226.

About this Item: Lisbon, Seara Nova, 1968., 1968. 8°, original illustrated wrappers. Some browning. Overall in very good condition. Editor's signed eight-line presentation inscription on half title "Ao querido Américo, // esta pequenissima incursão // em domînios que são mais // seus do que meus // Com um grande abraço // próspero // do // Hernâni Cidade". xiii pp., (1 l.), 63 pp., (4 ll.). *** Fourth edition, "corrigida e ampliada," of the present selection. The Fenix renascida is a classic anthology of Portuguese "Gongorist" poetry. The popularity of the work in its time can perhaps be judged from the fact that the satirist Nicolau Tolentino (1741-1811) mentions wealthy nuns who memorized whole volumes of the Fenix (see Bell, Portuguese Literature p. 276).The Fenix is also important for Brazilian literature, since it contains two poems by Bernardo Vieira Ravasco (b. Bahia, 1619), brother of P. Antonio Vieira, considered a great poet by his contemporaries. The Fenix includes what are apparently the only two works of his to have been printed. One of these is included in the present anthology, a sonnet in Spanish entitled "A hum papagayo de Palacio, que fallava muyto" (p. 19, here attributed to an anonymous author).Among the Portuguese authors represented here, in addition to those mentioned above, are Soror Violante do Ceo, Francisco de Vasconcelos, D. Tomás de Noronha, D. Francisco Manuel de Melo, and André Nunes da Silva. The editor and compiler of this selection, Hernâni [António] Cidade (Redondo 1887-Évora 1975), is best known as an author of literary and cultural history and of literary biography. For a half century, he was a major force in the cultural life of Portugal.

About this Item: Coimbra, Na Imprensa da Universidade, 1801., 1801. 16°, contemporary tree sheep (scraping to covers; wear to head and foot of spine, corners; recased with recent endleaves), flat spine with gilt fillets and crimson leather lettering piece, gilt short-title. In good condition. 258 pp., (1 l.). *** FIRST EDITION, with page 6 in its corrected state. Among the subjects of the odes are Vasco da Gama, André Furtado de Mendonça, João Fernandes Vieira, Dom João de Castro, Antonio Moniz Barreto, Duarte Pacheco Pereira, the Count Schaumbourg Lippe, and the Marquês de Pombal (to whom there are no less than four poems, including one on the reforms to Coimbra University). A second edition was published in London, 1820. The Odes also were published as volumes V and VI of the author's Poesias (Lisbon, 1807-17). Cruz e Silva developed a formidable reputation as a lyric poet and satirist. His O Hyssope was a source of inspiration for Francisco de Mello Franco's famous burlesque poem Reino da estupidez. Cruz e Silva based his poem on the quarrel between the bishop of Elvas, D. Lourenço de Lancastre, and the dean, D. José Carlos de Lara, which he witnessed first-hand while resident in Elvas from 1764 to 1774. As Bell recounts the tale, Cruz e Silva "was summoned to read his satire to the all-powerful [Marquês de] Pombal in the presence of the infuriated bishop . the poem proved too much for the gravity of the minister, who appointed him a judge in Rio de Janeiro (1776)" (Portuguese Literature pp. 273-4). Martins de Carvalho notes (p. 7) that many contemporaries considered O Hyssope "muito superior" to Pope's Rape of the Lock.Of humble origins (his father was a carpenter who abandoned the family to emigrate to Brazil, while his mother supported them working as a seamstress), Cruz e Silva (Lisbon 1731-Rio de Janeiro 1799) studied law at Coimbra. He co-founded the Arcadia Ulyssiponense in 1756 and, while serving as a military judge, developed a formidable reputation as a lyric poet and satirist. Most of Cruz e Silva's poems remained unpublished until after his death. In July 1790 Cruz e Silva was sent again to Brazil to assist in trying the leaders of the Republican conspiracy in Minas, in which Tomás António Gonzaga, Claudio Manuel da Costa, Manuel Inácio da Silva Alvarenga and other men of letters were involved, and in December 1792 he became chancellor of the Relação in Rio. Six years later he was named councillor of the Conselho Ultramarino, but did not live to return home.*** Innocêncio I, 124 (without mention of the final leaf). Pinto de Matos (1970) p. 235. Porbase locates four copies: Biblioteca Nacional de Portugal, Biblioteca João Paulo II-Universidade Católica Portuguesa, Biblioteca Geral da Universidade de Coimbra, and Universidade do Minho, without differentiating between the states of p. 6.

About this Item: Alfragide, Ediclube [printed in Sabadell (Barcelona) by Egedsa for S.A.P.E., Madrid], 1998., 1998. 15 volumes. Small folio (26.8 x 20 cm.), sturdy publisher's blue leatherette, front covers and spines richly gilt with Portuguese royal arms in three colors, illustrated endleaves. Superficial scratch of about 8 cm. on front cover of volume XIII; otherwise as new. Profusely illustrated, about half in color. *** This important "heterodox" history is unfortunately not available through normal book trade channels. Printed in Barcelona with the collaboration of a Madrid publisher, it is sold only by Ediclube, directly to the public, door to door-the purchaser is required to buy the books in order to obtain a TV, and pays in installments over an extended period, including huge amounts of interest. Contrary to what one might conclude about the quality of this work based on its method of distribution, it is a somewhat erudite production. In fact, we think it would probably not be very "user-friendly" to students below the university level. Specialized articles provide synthesis of research in their fields, and sometimes suggest new avenues of research of value to experts. We have at present one set in stock. The individual volumes, not available separately, are:I. Victor S. Gonçalves, ed. Portugal na Pré-história. 364 pp. (1 blank l., 1 l.). Contributors are Manuel Calado, Mariana Diniz, Carlos Fabião, Victor S. Gonçalves, Susana Oliveira Jorge, Vítor Oliveira Jorge, Carlos Alberto Medeiros, Luís Raposo, Carlos Tavares de Silva, Teresa Simões, and António Monge Soares. II. Victor S. Gonçalves, ed.

About this Item: Coimbra, Tip. F. França Amado, Successor, Julho de 1921., 1921. Large 8°, original printed wrappers (very minor wear). Slight browning. Partially unopened; overall in very good condition. 32 pp. *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION, a COMPLETE RUN. According to Fernando Guimarães, this review, along with others such as Ícaro, A Tradição, A Nossa Revista, Bysancio, Conímbriga, Tríptico, and Labareda, mix tendencies which were still strong in the 1920s, among them Decadence, Symbolism, Literary Nationalism, and Saudosismo. These were to unite with the Modernism of the generation of Orpheu, preparing the way for the appearance of Presença. Nova phenix was edited by Luís Vieira de Castro and published by Luís de Sousa e Vasconcelos. In an initial essay Manuel de Meneses (pp. 1-4) disparages authors such as Júlio Dantas, Antero de Figueiredo, Carlos Malheiro Dias, António Patrício, Sousa Pinto and Augusto de Castro, among others. In the same essay, Meneses affirms that the review proposes to analyze the state of Portuguese literature and contribute to its rehabilitation, stating that the review is not the organ of any coterie, and does not present any particular program. Four sonnets by João Cabral do Nascimento (pp. 5-8) are followed by an article on Russian ballet by Ernesto Gonçalves (pp. 9-16). There are two previously unpublished letters by Camilo Castelo Branco to José Cardoso Vieira de Castro (pp. 17-9), and Luís Vieira de Castro contributes a piece of short fiction titled "Espiritual" (pp. 20-5), as well as an essay "Ideias & factos, cronica: a melhor obra de Camillo" (pp. 29-31). Álvaro Manso de Souza provides three sonnets with the collective title "Poemas Orientais" (pp. 26-8). Finally, Manuel de Meneses contributes a brief resumé of the recent "Vida Literária e Artística" (pp. 31-2), which includes favorable mention of Eugénio de Castro, Fialho de Almeida, and Aquilino Ribeiro, as well as the painter Eduardo Viana. Ruy Coelho's opera Auto do Berço, performed at the Teatro São Carlos in Lisbon, was judged unsuccessful, though the composer's talent was considered admirable.*** Pires, Dicionário das revistas literárias portuguesas do século XX, pp. 219-20, correctly transcribing the title of this review; Dicionário da imprensa periódica literária portuguesa do século XX, I, 256-7, succumbing to the pedantry of the Porbase and Biblioteca Nacional cataloguers in calling this Nova fenix renascida. Clara Rocha, Revistas literárias do século XX em Portugal, pp. 368-9, 643. Carneiro da Silva, Jornais e revistas do Distrito de Coimbra. Serpa 851. Almeida Marques 1463. See also Fernando Guimarães, Simbolismo, modernismo e vanguardas (1982). Porbase locates copies at the Biblioteca Pública Municipal do Porto, Biblioteca Geral da Universidade de Coimbra, and Fundação Calouste Gulbenkian. It is typical of this otherwise very useful resource's pedantic approach to cataloguing, that one gets no "hits" by searching "Nova phenix" - not even a cross reference; to find it, one must search under the newer, politically correct orthography, "Nova fenix".

About this Item: [Lisbon], Per Antonio Gonçalvez, 1572., 1572. Folio (28.2 x 19 cm.), eighteenth-century (third quarter?) mottled sheep, spine richly gilt with raised bands in six compartments (a few pinpoint wormholes), crimson leather lettering-piece in second compartment from head, gilt short title, text-block edges rouged. Title-page with woodcut border comprised of caryatids, flowers and fruit. Full-page woodcut of the Carmelite arms on the final leaf. Large woodcut initials. Text in 2 columns. Four small holes in title page, touching a few letters without loss. Minor worming at fore-edge, not affecting text. Mild dampstain on a few leaves. In very good condition. Eighteenth-century stamps of the Duques de Lafões on verso of title-page and on first leaf of main text. (10 ll.), 220 pp., (1 l.). *** FIRST and ONLY (?) EDITION of this Carmelite chronicle, followed (in Book 2) by precepts, exhortations and rules for living. After flourishing in England during the thirteenth century, the Carmelite Order spread throughout Europe. A separate and distinct branch, the Barefoot Carmelites, was formed after St. Theresa of Ávila instituted monasteries and nunneries with much stricter rules of observance. This reformed branch did not enter Portugal until the 1580s, but the original Order was popular there in the mid-sixteenth century, and by the late sixteenth century, had more monasteries than any other religious order in Portugal except the Jesuits and Franciscans. Chapters 19-21 of Book 1 (pp. 76-92) chronicle the history of the Carmelites in Portugal and the exploits of the fourteenth-century feudal lord Nuno Álvarez Pereira, who is said to have introduced the Order into Portugal.Provenance: Collection of the Duques de Lafões. The second Duque de Lafões, D. João Carlos de Bragança Sousa Ligne Tavares Mascarenhas da Silva (1719-1806) was of the closest possible affinity to the royal house: his father was the legitimized son of D. Pedro II. A nobleman of great talent and public spirit, he led the aristocratic opposition to the Marquês de Pombal. He was also a man of great culture, and while living in exile during Pombal's tenure assisted both Gluck and Mozart. In the quarter-century after Pombal's fall, the Duque de Lafões became a dominant public figure, holding high public offices and founding the Real Academia das Sciencias de Lisboa to assure that Portugal would share the benefits of the Enlightenment. (See Castro e Almeida, Lista de ex-libris heráldicos portugueses 205, and Grande enciclopedia XIV, 543-5.) Parts of his library were dispersed in the late nineteenth century; other parts after the political events of 1974.*** Innocêncio VII, 275. King Manuel 135. Anselmo 695. Barbosa Machado III, 713.
