About this Item: Porto, Livraria Progredior, 1937 [colophon: 1938]., 1938. 8°, original printed wrappers (very minor foxing and soiling). Uncut. In very good condition. Signature of Jaime Cortesão Casimiro, dated Março 1941, in lower outer corner of half title. Purple stamp "RS" on half title. 188 pp., (2 ll.). *** FIRST EDITION. A second edition appeared in 1978.António [Tomás] Botto (1897-1959) was a member of the first group of Modernists in Portugal. His poetry has been described as some of the most original in the Portuguese language (Casais Monteiro, Poesía portuguesa contemporânea p. 177), and Botto himself as "uma das realidades definitivas e de primeira fila na intelectualidade portuguesa" (Grande enciclopedia IV, 988). Although his works caused consternation when first published - Botto was the first openly homosexual Portuguese writer-he was soon accepted in the avant-garde literary magazines and later in mainstream publications. Poet, author of short and long fiction, playwright, essayist, critic, polemicist, autobiographer, diarist, José Régio (1901-1969) was perhaps the most varied and complete as well as one of the greatest Portuguese literary figures of his century, and a key figure in the second generation of modernism. A native of Vila do Conde, he was a founder and editor of the review Presença, one of the most important Portuguese literary reviews ever. Provenance: Jaime Cortesão Casimiro was a close friend and collaborator of Alexandre O'Neill. He directed the review Mundo literário (53 issues, 1946-1948), to which O'Neill contributed two poems. Mundo literário, was published by Editorial Confluência, directed by Cortesão Casimiro and Calvet de Magalhães. This short-lived but influential publisher was responsible for the appearance in 1942 of two volumes of poems by Fernando Pessoa, edited and with substantial introductions by Adolfo Cassais Monteiro, in the series Antologia de Autores Portugueses e Estrangeiros.*** On Régio see Fernando Guimarães in Machado, ed., Dicionário de literatura portuguesa, pp. 405-7; Eugénio Lisboa in Biblos IV, 654-8; Dicionário cronológico de autores portugueses, IV, 111-5.

About this Item: Franciscus Hegerus and Franciscus Hackius, Leiden, 1638. Hardcover. Condition: Very good. STUFFED WITH MANUSCRIPT REMAINS 8vo, two volumes in one: 1): FIRST EDITION. pp. [12], 518, [2]; 2): pp. 7, [1], 567, [1], final gathering Aa8 incorrectly bound after initial table of contents. Predominantly Roman letter, little Italic and Greek; decorated initials and head- and tail-pieces, printer’s device on title 1 (a little dusty), detailed full-page engraved portrait of Baudius at f. ***viv, engraved title 2; occasional spot to margins. A very good copy in contemporary plain vellum; a bit worn, front cover crudely repaired after partial removal of central vellum, overs boards made from multiple ll. of earlier ms; all edges blue; contemporary owner’s inscription to title 1) ‘Con. Ernest Ruppelius Arzb.’; contemporary annotation to verso of rear endpaper. A very amusing collection of Neo-latin poetry and essays published by the main competitors of the Elzevier press. The first work is the editio princeps (variant B of the imprint) of a sammlung of love writings, mainly by Domenicus Baudius. Baudius (1561-1613), probably a nickname for Dominique Baudier, was a prominent poet, historian and professor at the University of Leiden. Graduate in law in 1585, he received encouragement from Joseph Justus Scaliger and De Thou to engage in Latin poetry and later befriended Philip Sidney, Daniel Heinsius and Hugo Grotius. He started teaching at the University of Leiden in 1602, first as professor of rhetoric and then of history. For this reason, he was entrusted with the composition of a chronicle of the Dutch war between 1609 and 1611. His Amores were edited posthumously by Peter Schrijver (1576-1660), a younger colleague of his in Leiden as well as a Neo-Latin poet and historian in his own right. They gather several of Baudius’s letters and verses recounting his erotic often-failing adventures, along with a great number of other pieces related to love and marriage by both his erudite friends (Hensius, Grotius, Schrijver, Scaliger and Salmasius) and earlier humanists such as Erasmus, Lelio Capilupi, Giovanni Carga and even Thomas More with his Qualis uxoria deligenda. Schrijver took the opportunity to include some annotations by himself, Salmasius, Pithou and Lipsius about the famous anonymous poem of late antiquity Pervigilium Veneris. This edition, printed by George Vander Marse, was published jointly in Leiden by Hagerus & Hackius and in Amsterdam by Louis Elzevier. The other half of the volume is taken up with the second edition of a collection of scholarly divertissements, bearing a new title in respect of the princeps issued in 1623 as Argumentorum ludicrorum scriptores. It comprises short smart essays in praise of swimming, laughing, fleas, elephants, donkeys, ants, cows, lice, flies, blindness, malaria and gout. Among the authors are Melanchton, Willibald Pirckheimer, Celio Calcagnini, Marco Antonio Maioraggio, Jean Passerat and again Lipsius, Hensius and Scaliger. The voluminous ms binder’s waste is a potential feast for scholars. 1) Brunet I, 703; Graesse, I, 312; Gay, I, 103 (‘recueil estimé et peu commun’); Willems, 961 (‘le volume des Amores est bien execute, et les beaux exemplaires son assez recherchés . Il était dèjà rare en 1712’). 2) Brunet, II, 762; Graesse, II, 410; Gay, II, 14; Willems, 1633. Latin. Seller Inventory # L1941

Relatione del reame di Congo et delle: PIGAFETTA, Filippo and

About this Item: Adams L-1468 (lacking 1 map); Brunet IV, col. 651 (without the plates); Cox I, pp. 354-355; Gay, Bibl. de l'Afrique et l'Arabe 3077 (without the maps); for the maps: Betz, The mapping of Africa 34-36, 186; Norwich, Africa 16. First edition of one of the main sources for authentic information on central Africa. Filippo Pigafetta, a relative of Antonio Pigafetta, Magellan's companion on his first circumnavigation of the world, based his work on the information he collected from the Portuguese traveller Duarte Lopez, who sailed to the Congo in 1578 and stayed in Loanda until 1587. Pigafetta's important and beautifully illustrated account deals with the geography of the country, its animals, the inhabitants and their customs, the Portuguese trade, missionary activities, etc. Of special interest are his history and descriptions of Congolese tribes and their kings. It remained the main source for information on the Congo and central Africa up to the middle of the 19th century. The fine and decorative map of Africa includes the Red Sea and parts of the Arabian Peninsula.With the maps repaired and mounted on cloth, and a tear repaired in 1 folding plate, slightly foxed, margins of the plates frayed (without affecting the images, but in one case reaching the border). Some small stains on the binding and the spine a bit worn. Good copy, complete with all the maps and plates. Seller Inventory # A2FEIZINTMYH
