About this Item: Rio de Janeiro, Typographia Universal de Laemmert, 1841., 1841. 12°, contemporary green cloth (heavily wormed, defective at foot of spine, worn at corners, front cover detached, other binding defects), spine and covers with gilt fillets. Wormholes throughout, mostly small and round, without affecting legibility of text. A working copy only. Blue imperial stamp on p. 5. 134 pp., (1 l.). *** FIRST EDITION of this anthology. The first part (pp. 5-65) is Sousa Caldas' Poesias sacras, the second his Poesias profanas. After them are two odes by José Bonifácio de Andrada e Silva and other poems of Francisco Manuel Garção e Ferreira. Sousa Caldas (b. 1762), an Arcadian, was "o mais vigoroso lírico dos predecessores imediatos do romantismo" (Veríssimo p. 114). He was imprisoned in 1781 by the Inquisition on grounds of being "herege, naturalista, deísta e blasfemo" - apparently because he was influenced by Rousseau. Eventually he took orders and began writing sacred poetry. In 1808 he returned to his native Rio de Janeiro, where he died in 1814. Aside from a few cartas avulsas, the Poesias sacras and Poesias profanas are Sousa Caldas's only published works, first published in 1820-1821. Poesias sacras includes cantatas, sonnets and odes on the existence of God, the immortality of the soul, the need for revelation, the virtue of Christianity, and others. Poesias profanas, includes some of the author's best works - a cantata entitled "Pygmalion" and the ode "Ao homem selvagem"-as well as "Sobre o amor, considerado como principio e esteio da ordem social," a sonnet improvised at the tomb of Ines de Castro, and a lengthy letter (pp. 90-131) in verse and prose describing a voyage to Genoa. The ode "Ao homem selvagem" made him rank, according to Werneck Sodré, with Santa Rita Durão and Francisco de Melo Franco as "os primeiros que, entre nós, trataram o tema do selvagem" (p. 263). Andrada e Silva (1763-1838), often referred to as the "Patriarch of Brazilian Independence," was one of the greatest Brazilian writers of the half century before independence. A native of São Paulo, he studied law at Coimbra; soon thereafter his aptitude for the natural sciences was noticed by the Duke of Lafões, who arranged his membership in the Academia Real das Sciencias. When he returned to Brazil, in 1819, he began working for Brazilian independence and was soon named royal minister and deputy to the Assembleia. Soon after, however, he was sent into European exile for seven years. When D. Pedro abdicated as emperor of Brazil, he entrusted the tutelage of his children to José Bonifacio. Andrade published a plethora of works in the early 1820s, including a few that were published under D. Pedro's name. He was a member of numerous learned societies in Europe and the Americas (see Innocêncio for a list), including the American Philosophical Society.The editor, a native of Rio de Janeiro, was the second administrator of the Imprensa Nacional. He taught Portuguese grammar to the daughters of Emperor D. Pedro II.*** Borba de Moraes, Período colonial p. 386. Sacramento Blake II, 427: without collation.

About this Item: Lisbon, Escriptorio da Bibliotheca Portugueza, 1853., 1853. 18° (13.8 x 9 cm.), original printed wrappers (spine slightly faded, with short tear at head). Very slight spotting to a few leaves. Uncut and unopened. In fine condition. xxxvi [counting front wrapper as pp. i-ii], 196 pp., (1 blank l.). *** Second edition of this epic poem in oitava rima on the theme of Paradise lost and regained. The four cantos treat death, judgment, Hell, and Paradise. Bell praises it for its readability and intense and vigorous style. Its composition can be dated not later than 1616, the date of the "Aprovaçam" of the first edition (Lisbon, 1623), which is extremely rare. Os novissimos was reintroduced to nineteenth-century audiences through publication of this second edition, which reprints not only the text but all preliminary matter from the first edition. Added to this edition is a biographical and critical essay reprinted from José Maria da Costa e Silva, Ensaio biographico-critico sobre os melhores poetas portuguezes (published earlier the same year in Lisbon). The second edition forms part of the 15-volume Bibliotheca Portugueza, ou Reproducção dos Livros Classicos Portuguezes, which also included the works of Bernardim Ribeiro, Gil Vicente, Luis Camões, Francisco de Moraes, Francisco de Andrade, and the Cavalleiro de Oliveira.Dom Francisco Childe Rolim de Moura (1572-1640), fourteenth Senhor of the towns of Azambuja and Montargil, was in all probability born in Lisbon. He was the son of Dom Felipe de Moura (according to Borba de Moraes) or Dom António Rolim de Moura (according to Ana Hatherly) and Dona Genebra Cavalcanti of Pernambuco (according to Borba) or Dona Guiomar da Silveira (according to Hatherly). It is believed by some that he was born in Olinda. Although esteemed by his contemporaries, few of his poems were published or are still extant.*** Borba de Moraes (1983) II, 600: "not easy to find." Innocêncio III, 49: calling for xxxvi, 196 pp.; on the Bibliotheca Portugueza, see I, 387. Blake III, 109: calling for xxxviii, 196 pp., and citing evidence - disputed by many authorities - that Rolim de Moura was born in Brazil and served as an officer there.

About this Item: Lisbon, Na Officina de Francisco da Silva, 1751., 1751. 4°, disbound, text block edges sprinkled red from an early binding, in a marbled folding case with red leather label on front cover, short author-title, place and date in gilt. Woodcut headpiece, 2 large woodcut initials. Crisp and clean. In very good condition. Number 14 in ink in upper outer corner of title page. (7 ll.), 50 pp., lacking the plate. *** FIRST EDITION thus, with the description of the obsequies held in Minas Geraes for D. João V. Salgado's sermon also appeared separately in 1751, as Oração funebre nas exequias do Fidelissimo Rey, e Senhor D. João V celebradas pelo Senado da Camara da Villa de S. João de ElRey, nas Minas Geraes da America Portugueza . During the mid-eighteenth century Minas Geraes produced most of the world's gold and diamonds, and São João del Rey was one of the most important and wealthy mining centers in that province: as might be expected, its funeral ceremonies for D. João V were lavish. The description of the obsequies ("Relaçam fiel das reaes exequias da defunta Magestade do Fidelissimo, e Augustissimo Rey o Senhor D. João V," pp. 1-30) includes a reference to Governor Gomes Freire de Andrade announcing D. João's death to the king's subjects in Brazil. The obsequies in São João delRey were finally held after 2 months of mourning and the preparation of a suitably spectacular catafalque based on a design by Sargeant Antonio de Moraes Sarmento. The "Relaçãm" describes the monument in great detail, including its many emblems, whose symbolism is thoroughly explained. It also transcribes all the Latin and Portuguese poems that appeared on it. For the actual ceremony, it describes the decorations on the church's altar, the performances of the choir, the number of priests involved, and the church's illumination by innumerable candles.Lacking in this copy is the large folding plate (53 x 34 cm.) that shows the catafalque. It was engraved by G.F.L. Debrie after Stefanus de Andrade. Soares notes that the Monumento is "raríssima" and the plate "raras vezes aparece."Pages 31-50 are Mathias Antonio Salgado's sermon at the funeral obsequies. Salgado, a vicar at the principal church in São João del Rey, notes that the town felt a special sympathy for D. João: "Assim como o nosso Augusto Monarcha, como João, devia amparar tambem esta Villa, como mais prejudicada nesta morte, se deve distinguir nos excessos do sentimento, como se distingue na gloria do nome" (p. 2). Salgado (b. Lisbon, 1699 or 1700), who held a doctorate in canon law from the University of Coimbra, was a Jesuit before he became a lay presbyter.The "Relaçam" is the work of Manuel José Corrêa de Alvarenga, whose name appears in print on p. 30. Corrêa e Alvarenga, a native of Braga, also published 2 poems, Braga triumphante, Coimbra, 1742, and Relação dos estragos que desde o dia 3 de dezembro até 6 do mesmo mez do presente anno de 1739 infelizmente causou n'esta cidade de Coimbra uma sempre memorada tempestade, Coimbra, 1760.*** Borba de Moraes (1983) II, 764; Período colonial pp. 323-4 (not listing the sermon separately).

About this Item: Lisbon, Na Officina de Manoel Coelho Amado, 1758., 1758. 4°, disbound; text block edges sprinkled red from an early binding. Woodcut vignette on title page. Woodcut headpiece and large, elegant woodcut initial on second leaf recto. Woodcut headpiece and initial on p. 1. In good to very good condition. (2 ll.), 16 pp., (2 ll.). *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION of this funeral elegy for the Infante D. António, third surviving son of D. Pedro II of Portugal and Queen Maria Sophia Isabel of Neuburg. He was a brother of D. João V, and uncle of D. José I. Born in Lisbon on March 15, 1695, he died unmarried and without issue in the same city on October 20, 1757 and is buried at the Royal Pantheon of the Bragança Dynasty, at the Mosteiro de São Vicente de Fora in Lisbon. Something of a rogue, he spent most of his life estranged from the royal court. D. António took great interest in music, playing the harpsichord and piano, and was a student of the Italian composer Domenico Scarlatti.The famous Franciscan Friar (1686-after 1759), a native of Bahia, who joined the Franciscan order at the convento de Sergipe do Conde, in 1702, merited inclusion (with numerous errors, including an erroneous early date of death), in Pereira da Silva's Varões ilustres do Brasil. He studied at the convento de Olinda prior to moving to the island of Madeira, then to Lisbon, where he took Holy Orders. Professor of theology, he was Penitenciário geral of his congregation. When D. João V sent a fleet at the request of Pope Clement XI in 1717 to expel the Turks from Corfu, he was present as chaplain, and was gravely wounded, causing the amputation of his left leg. Fray Francisco knew French, English, Italian and Latin; he made several trips within Europe, visiting England and the Low Countries; during a stay in Italy he was incorporated into the Arcádia Romana. He was a member of the Academia Real de História. A number of his sermons, elegies, orations, and poems were published during his lifetime; others remained in manuscript. *** Borba de Moraes (1983) II, 770; período colonial p. 334.

About this Item: Lisbon, Francisco Arthur da Silva, 1880., 1880. Large 8°, contemporary red half sheep over dark green pebbled cloth (minor wear), spine gilt in five compartments, raised bands, marbled endleaves, original green on yellow printed wrappers bound in (small repair at outer margin of front wrapper; tiny repair at outer margin of rear wrapper), edges sprinkled. Title in red and black with publisher's monogram. Six lithograph plates. Double-page engraved map of Brazil. Overall in fine condition. xxviii, 404 pp., 6 plates and 1 double-page map. *** Third edition but First Illustrated Edition of the first general history of Brazil, which was first published in Lisbon, 1730, and again at Bahia, 1878. This edition is described in error on the front wrapper and the title-page as the second. It was revised and annotated by J.G. Goes. The illustrations depict landfall in 1500, the city of Salvador, Bahia, the death of Padre Ignacio d'Azevedo, João Fernandes Vieira, panning for gold, and Rio de Janeiro. There is also a double-page map of Brazil.Burns describes Rocha Pitta as "one of the foremost eighteenth-century historians" (Perspectives on Brazilian History p. 16), although Rocha Pitta is often condemned for his florid and ornate language, and for not using primary sources. Southey's harsh assessment has been widely quoted: "The only general history of Brazil is . . . a meagre and inaccurate work, which has been accounted valuable merely because there was no other" (Preface to the History of Brazil, London 1810-19). On the other hand, Southey testified to the importance of Rocha Pitta's Historia by numerous citations of it throughout his own work. And while Southey rejected Rocha Pitta's methodology, the Instituto Histórico e Geográfico (established 1839) respected and sometimes adhered to it. The Historia is an important source on the history of Minas Geraes (where gold, diamonds and emeralds were all discovered during his lifetime), on the "Guerra dos Emboabas," 1708-1711, between Paulistas and recent immigrants from Portugal and coastal Brazil, and on the "Guerra dos Macates," 1709-1711, between the sugar-planters in Olinda and the new bourgeoisie in Recife.Rocha Pitta (1660-1738), a native of Bahia, traveled to Coimbra to take his degree, then spent most of the rest of his life on his family's plantation in Brazil.*** Borba de Moraes (1983) II, 678.

Mello Franco discusses the influence of age, sex, habits and temperament on physical and mental health. He strongly advocates cold baths and nutritional foods, and cautions against immoderate consumption of tea and coffee. The order for printing this second edition was signed by José Bonifacio de Andrada e Silva (1763-1838), the "Patriarch of Brazilian Independence."Mello Franco (1757-1823), born in Minas Geraes, practiced medicine in Lisbon until 1817, when he returned to Brazil. For his liberal writings and associations he spent several years in the dungeons of the Inquisition. His Medicina theologica, Lisbon 1794, was the first Portuguese book on psychosomatic medicine, and his Tratado da educação fysica dos meninos, Lisbon 1790, is the first work by a Brazilian on the physical education of children.Provenance: P. José Rodrigues Liberal de Sampaio (1846-1935), a native of Serraquinho, Montalegre, was a secular priest, with degrees in Theology and Law from Coimbra University (1891). He is said to have excelled as a student, and to have been a distinguished preacher, and simultaneously practicing law in the region of Chaves. A member of numerous learned societies, he contributed articles of literary and scientific criticism, as well as entering into polemics, published in a number of newspapers in Lisbon and Porto. He also studied the history and archeology of his region, and formed a vast library, which it was thought would go to the Municipal Museum in his name in Chave, but this aim was never realized, and the library was dispersed.

About this Item: Francisco Borges de Sousa, Lisboa, 1765. Fifth edition. [16 leaves], 474 (i.e. 476) pp. Woodcut printer's ornament on title page; head and tail pieces; initials. Nuno Marques Pereira (1652?-1728?) was born at Cairu, near Bahia, then the capital of Portuguese America, and spent considerable time in the mining areas before traveling to Lisbon. It was considered by some scholars to be the first Brazilian novel. "A book by a Brazilian about Brazil which was widely read in the eighteenth century and which is of great importance today for the portrait it gives of social life, manners and customs at that time of the common people in Bahia and Minas Geraes" (Borba de Moraes, page 660). Rodrigues "e de grande merito e importancia para as cousas do brasil." It went through five editions by 1765. but the second part was not published until 1939, in Rio de Janeiro. "Pereira's text is an allegorical dialogue in which two characters, The Old Man and The Pilgrim, moralize about the generally sorry state of morals in Brazil. It includes a number of interesting notes on colonial society, but it was not meant to be realistic; Pereira designed it, rather, as the response of the Iberian Counter-Reformation to John Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress," Cambridge History of Latin American Literature, Volume 3, p. 61.

About this Item: Lisbon, Na Offic. de João Procopio Correa da Silva, 1798., 1798. Folio ( 29.4 x 19.5 cm.), contemporary half green morocco over marbled boards (significant wear, especially at head and foot of spine, but also at corners, and to leather on front cover), smooth spine with gilt fillets and crimson morocco lettering piece, gilt short title. Large woodcut royal arms of Portugal on title page. Woodcut headpiece on p. 1. Mathematical equations in text. Occasional small light dampstains. Plates with slight browning, as usual. Overall in good to very good condition. (3 ll.), 79 pp., (1 integral blank l.), 4 large folding engraved plates. *** First and Only Edition in Portuguese, and apparently the only separate edition. The work was originally published in English as "The Construction and Analysis of Geometrical Propositions Determining the Positions Assumed by Homogeneal Bodies which Float Freely, and at Rest, on a Fluid's Surface, by the noted English mathematician George Atwood" in volume LXXXVI, 1796, of the Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society, and awarded the Copley medal. The plates show cross-sections of hulls and related diagrams. "This book by the famous Brazilian scientist is the only independent work he published. It is a translation of George Atwood's book on shipbuilding and was published for the students of the Naval Academy. It is now very difficult to find." - Borba de Moraes. The translator and editor, António Pires da Silva Pontes (Nossa Senhora do Rossario in the comarca de Marianna, Minas Geraes, 1750-Rio de Janeiro, 1805), studied at Coimbra University (1769-1777), where he received a doctorate in mathematics. He was appointed along with Franciso José de Lacerda e Almeida and Ricardo Franco de Almeida Serra as a member of the commission to explore and establish the Brazilian frontier in the North. The findings of that expedition were only partly published; most remain in manuscripts held by the Biblioteca Nacional in Rio de Janeiro. The account of his exploration of the Rio Branco was printed in São Paulo in 1841 together with the Diário da viagem pelas capitanias do Pará, Rio Negro, Mato Grosso . by Francisco José de Lacerda e Almeida. Returning to Lisbon in 1790, Pontes taught at the Naval Academy. A friend of D. Rodrigo de Sousa Coutinho, later Conde de Linhares, the year this book was published he was named Governor of the Capitania of Espirito Santo, taking up his post in 1800. He was Capitão de Fragata in the Portuguese navy, and a member of the Real Academia das Sciencias de Lisboa.*** Borba de Moraes (1983), II, 683; Período colonial, p. 291. Sacramento Blake I, 292-4.

About this Item: Lisbon, Na Officina de Francisco da Silva, 1751., 1751. 4°, disbound in recent crimson quarter morocco slipcase with marbled sides, spine with raised bands in six compartments, gilt bands, gilt-lettered author and title in second and fourth compartments from head, respectively; place and date at foot of spine. Minor worming in upper margin, more serious on last three leaves, although the text is nowhere affected. Overall in very fine condition. (4 ll.), 26 pp. *** FIRST EDITION, or perhaps the first separate edition; rare. This sermon also appeared in Monumento do agradecimiento, tributo de veneraçam, obelisco funeral do obsequio, relaçam fiel das reaes exequias . do D. João V ., printed in Lisbon in the same year. During the mid-eighteenth century Minas Geraes produced most of the world's gold and diamonds, and São João del Rey was one of the most important and wealthy mining centers in the province: as might be expected, its funeral ceremonies for D. João V were lavish. The author of this sermon, vicar at the principal church in São João del Rey, notes that the town felt a special sympathy for D. João: "Assim como o nosso Augusto Monarcha, como João, devia amparar tambem esta Villa, como mais prejudicada nesta morte, se deve distinguir nos excessos do sentimento, como se distingue na gloria do nome" (p. 2).Salgado, a native of Lisbon, was a Jesuit at this point: on p. 23, he refers to "minha sagrada Religião, a Companhia de Jesus." Salgado later became a lay presbyter. *** Borba de Moraes (1983) II, 764; Período colonial does not list the sermon separately.

About this Item: Lisbon, Na Officina de Miguel Manescal da Costa, 1768., 1768. 5 volumes. 8°, uniformly bound in contemporary mottled calf, (some wear), each smooth spine richly gilt with red lettering piece bearing title. Woodcut royal arms on the title-pages of all but volume II; woodcut or factotum initials, typographical head- and tailpieces. Small wormhole in margin of last few leaves of volume I, not affecting text. Internally fine, overall in very good condition. Bookplate of Francisco de Saldanha da Gama Ferrão de Castello Branco, and his signature in ink on title-page of each volume. 384 pp.; (1 l.), 385-786 pp.; (8 ll.), 3-398 pp. [but catchword matches final preliminary leaf], (1 blank l.); (3 ll.), xviii, 357 pp. [pp. xi-xviii misbound after p. 16], (1 blank l.); (4 ll.), 248 pp. *** Second edition of this extended justification for expelling the Jesuits from Portugal and Brazil in 1759, written or (at minimum) inspired, revised, and edited by the Marques de Pombal himself. The Deducção, in folio format (three volumes) appeared in 1767-1768. It was translated into Latin, French, Spanish and Italian. Although the work was published under Seabra da Silva's name, it was essentially Pombal's work: the Biblioteca Nacional in Lisbon holds a manuscript with Pombal's additions and corrections. In the Marques de Pombal catalogue (1982), the work is described as "obra executada por José Seabra da Silva por ordem e inspiração do Marqués" (nº 71).The first part (bound here in 2 volumes) describes Portugal's decline under the malignant influence of the Jesuits. It includes references to the Tavora Conspiracy (1758) and the empire that the Jesuits supposedly established among the Indians in Brazil and Latin America. The Italian missionary to Brazil P. Gabriel Malagrida is mentioned several times. The Jesuits are blamed for a wide range of evils, including the decline of Portuguese literature: "Ainda não bastárão aquellas ruinas da Authoridade Regia; aquelles estragos da Independencia Temporal da Coroa destes Reynos; aquelles flagellos contra todos os que professavão Letras em Portugal com talentos, e prestimo distinctos . para completarem todas as iniquidades, que o seu occulto, e vastissimo Plano encerrava dentro no seu impenetravel segredo. Achárão, que depois de haverem morto, affugentado, e emudecido todos os Homens distinctos em Letras, que então havia neste Reyno; lhes restava, para nelle se fazerem, e perpetuarem para sempre dispoticos, arruinarem tambem pelos seus alicerces a Literatura Portugueza ." (I, 140).The second part of the Deducção (bound as volume III here) is on censorship: "na qual se manifesta o que successivamente passou nas differentes epocas da Igreja sobre a censura, prohibição, e impressão dos livros: demonstrando-se os intoleraveis prejuizos, que co o abuso dellas se tem feito á mesma Igreja de Deos, a todas as monarquias, a todos os estados soberanos, e ao socego publico de todo o universo."The final 2 volumes of this set include the supporting documents (provas), among them eleven decrees from D. Sebastião, numerous decrees from Portuguese, French, and Neapolitan kings, papal bulls, and letters from famous Jesuits.*** Borba de Moraes (1983) II, 809. Innocêncio II, 130-1 (calling it a folio, and without collation); V, 121 (mentioning the Petição de recurso, Lisbon 1767, 59 pp., which is bound after the Provas, and which Innocêncio notes was also incorporated into the octavo edition).

About this Item: Paris, Em Casa de J.P. Aillaud, 1842-1851., 1851. Together 8 volumes in 9. Large 8°, uniform contemporary half calf (minor wear), spines with raised bands in five compartments, gilt fillets, author in second compartment from head, short title in third, volume in fourth; all edges marbled. Silk ribbon marker in each volume. Scattered foxing and browning (a few pages here and there), but overall a fine copy. Seven volumes (in 8) of the 18-volume Quadro. *** The first seven volumes (in eight) of the earliest complete edition of one of the Visconde de Santarem's major works; one of 1,000 copies. The first edition, Lisbon, 1828, consisted of only one volume. This Paris edition, revised and expanded to eighteen volumes, 1842-1876, is "a classic and sought-after work" (Borba de Moraes). It includes diplomatic documents, treaties, and so on ranging from the twelfth century to 1770, with copiously annotated introductory commentary by Santarem. During Santarem's lifetime, these volumes plus volumes VIII (on France) and XIV (on England) were published, both in 1853. The remaining volumes were published by 1876.In this set, the first two volumes deal with relations between Spain and Portugal; volumes III-VII with relations between Portugal and France from 1121 to 1770. Volume VI is very difficult to find; this set has the 1850 reprint.The present set of the Quadro elementar includes the following volumes.I. Paris, 1842. lxxxiv, 394 pp.II. Paris, 1842. xxvi pp., (1 blank l.), 479 pp., (1 l. correcções).

He traveled to Brazil with the royal family in 1807 and held various diplomatic posts. He served as Keeper of the Royal Archives at Torre do Tombo from 1824 until 1833, when he was dismissed for political reasons. Although he spent the rest of his life in Paris, his standing with the Portuguese government later improved to the point that the government funded many of his publications, and appointed him Keeper of the Torre do Tombo without requiring him to return to Portugal.*** Innocêncio V, 436-7, VII, 31-37: vols.

About this Item: Coimbra, Na Real Officina da Universidade, 1796., 1796. 4 volumes. 4°, nineteenth century (ca. 1880?) crimson quarter morocco over marbled boards (a few tiny wormholes and small traces at upper covers and joints), smooth spines with gilt lettering and numbering, fillets in gilt and blind, light blue-green endleaves. Woodcut royal Portuguese arms on title pages. Typographical headpieces. Small woodcut of a cross on leaf O1 recto of first volume. Occasional light foxing and toning, heavier on a few leaves. Overall in very good condition. Oval orange printed paper tickets of Biblioteca Bernardino Ribeiro de Carvalho in upper outer corners of front pastedown endleaves. viii, xv, 385 pp.; (2 ll.), xix, 565 [i.e. 465] pp.; (2 ll.), xx, 452 pp.; (2 ll.), xxvii, 544 pp. Page 219 of volume II misnumbered 216 and pp. 233 to 465 misnumbered 333 to 565; p. 397 of volume III misnumbered 197. *** Second edition; the first, printed in Lisbon, 1613, is very rare. This is the standard history of the reign of King John III of Portugal (1521-1557), the "strong-willed and weak-minded ascetic," and has been called by Figueiredo one of the five best classical works in Portuguese. Like all Renaissance chronicles of Portugal, the history dwells more extensively on the recent Portuguese conquests in the East and in Brazil, leaving relatively little space for the internal events of the kingdom. The Inquisition discouraged any emphasis on home affairs, especially in works such as this, written in the vernacular.Of the 413 chapters in the book, at least 291 deal partly or completely with Portuguese activities in the East, at Goa, Diu, Chaul, and Calicut in India, Ternate and Malacca, Ceylon, and China. An additional 46 chapters are concerned with Africa and the Mideast, e.g. Mozambique, Zanzibar, Ethiopia, Ormuz, Suez, Alcacer Cequer, Tangiers, Ceuta and Arzila. There is also one chapter (IV, 32) on the foundation of Salvador in Brazil; as the author says in the introduction to this chapter, the King and his Council paid less attention to that area at the time, "avendoas por menos importantes, porque os proveitos dellas se esperavão mais da grangearia da terra, que do comercio da gente ."Francisco de Andrade (ca. 1535-1614), brother of the great mystic writer Frei Thomé de Jesus, wrote this chronicle and was the author of the celebrated epic poem on the first siege of Diu, @O primeiro cerco . de Diu, which he regarded as a supplementary chapter to this history. Andrade was a Commander of the Order of Christ, a member of the State Council, Chief Keeper of the Archives and Chief Chronicler of the Kingdom.Provenance: Bernardino Ribeiro de Carvalho (1846-1910), born in the freguesia de Cabaços, concelho de Alvaiázere, came to Lisbon, was brought into the business of his uncle / father-in-law, and acquired a great fortune importing exotic lumber. He was a passionate book collector, frequenting auctions and bookshops from the 1860s until shortly prior to his death. Among the sales he attended and purchased at were those of Sir Gubian (1867), the Visconde de Juromenha (1887), José da Silva Mendes and Jorge César de Figanière (1889), the Condes de Linhares (1895), and José Maria Nepomuceno (1887).*** Borba de Moraes (1958) I, 29-30; curiously, the revised ed. does not list this work. Innocêncio II, 332. JCB, Portuguese and Brazilian Books 796/1. Azevedo-Samodães 145A: calling for only 542 pp. in volume IV. Avila-Perez 198. Not in Palha, or JFB (1994).

About this Item: London, L. Thompson, 1831., 1831. 2 works in 1 volume. 8°, contemporary green quarter morocco over decorated boards (joints cracking, rubbed, corners worn, other binding wear; lacking front free endleaf), flat spine gilt with old paper label, text block edges sprinkled blue-green. Scattered foxing. Overall in good to very good condition. 165 pp., (1 l.). *** FIRST EDITION of an eyewitness account by a close friend of D. Pedro I of events in Brazil during the first decade of independence. There are also editions of 1939 and 1959. The author (1791-1852) emigrated from his native Lisbon to Brazil in 1807 and became a leader in the movement for Brazilian independence. He was one of several men considered by the Marquez de Barbacena to be anti-liberal, and likely to subvert the Emperor's inclination toward constitutional government. It was probably through Barbacena's efforts that Gomes da Silva departed for Lisbon in 1830. There he was named Secretario do Estado da Casa de Bragança after the Restauração of 1833, a position he held until his death. He published several works defending himself against the charge that he was anti-liberal, including these Memorias and A exposição do Marquez de Barbacena commentada, Antwerp 1831.*** Borba de Moraes (1983) II, 256: "These Memorias of the 'Chalaça' are very rare and much sought after." Sacramento Blake II, 458: "obra rarissima, preciosa pelas luzes que derrama sobre factos do primeiro reinado, dos quaes foi o autor testemunha e parte, como o declara, e onde justifica ao mesmo tempo seu proceder relativamente a arguições injustas que lhe foram feitas, segundo as classifica." Innocêncio II, 388: stating that this work was very little known in Lisbon, and that he had only seen one copy; and IX, 302: correcting his previous error in collation. Bosch 399. Not in Rodrigues.

About this Item: Lisbon, Na Officina de Francisco Luiz Ameno, 1752., 1752. 4°, contemporary mottled sheep (head of spine defective; other binding wear), spine richly gilt with raised bands in five compartments, citron leather lettering piece in second compartment from head (with four small round wormholes), gilt letter, text-block edges sprinkled red, green silk ribbon place marker. Engraved headpiece vignette and initial on p. 1. Very small inkstains at extreme outer edges of first eight leaves. Overall in good to very good condition. Neat contemporary signature on title page. (14 ll.), 400 pp. Page 327 misnumbered 627. *** FIRST EDITION, variant issue, of this eighteenth-century masterpiece of prose-one of the few notable prose works written by a Brazilian in the second half of the eighteenth century-and forerunner of the modern novel of ideas. In 1920 Solidonio Leite published a facsimile of this edition, calling the public's attention to the literary significance of this forgotten classic and re-establishing Silva de Eça's reputation among Brazilian writers. Solidonio Leite considers this the best edition, despite the fact that it does not contain at the end the author's "Carta sobre a fortuna," which appeared only in the third and fourth (posthumous) editions of 1778 and 1786. The second edition appeared in 1761.Borba de Moraes describes two issues of this first edition. This is issue B, with the first page of the Licenças bearing the catchword "Appro-". The quotation from Ecclesiastes on leaf ****2v appears in the center of the page (not at the head), the first page of the text is numbered "1," and the vignette is undated (in issue A, it is dated 1771). JCB, Portuguese and Brazilian Books calls issue A the first and issue B the second. Why this should be the case, when issue A has a vignette dated 1771, is beyond our comprehension. Borba makes no such claim as to priority.A native of São Paulo, Silva de Eça spent most of his adult life in Portugal. This treatise on the themes of Ecclesiastes is his principal work. His sister was Brazil's first woman novelist, Teresa Margarida da Silva e Orta, author of Aventuras de Diofanes, 1752.*** Borba de Moraes (1983) I, 283: "rare"; Período colonial p. 127.

About this Item: Lisbon, Regia Officina Typografica, 1772., 1772. Small 4°, recent full antique sheep (a few minor scratches to covers), red leather label, gilt letter. Woodcut royal portuguese arms on title-page, woodcut initial. Title-page slightly soiled. Otherwise, crisp and in fine condition. 66 pp. *** FIRST EDITION. Written in praise of José de Seabra da Silva, with copious praise, too, for the Marques de Pombal. Seabra da Silva had served as Procurador da Coroa and was Ministro d'Estado under Pombal, until he fell out of favor (supposedly after revealing a royal confidence) and was exiled to Africa. He was recalled by D. Maria I and served as Ministro dos Negocios do Reino until the regency of D. João, when he once again fell into disgrace. He died in 1813. The Deducção chronologica, Lisbon 1767, has Seabra da Silva's name on the title, but is often considered to be the work of the Marques de Pombal. Silva e Veiga discusses the Deducção on p. 39 and following of this work.Silva e Veiga was a judge in the Relação of Rio de Janeiro, and later in Oporto. He was murdered in 1809 by a mob who thought he was a French sympathizer.*** Borba de Moraes (1983) II, 892. Innocêncio V, 439; on Seabra, see II, 130 and V, 121.
