About this Item: [Lisbon], [colophon] Na Officina de Simão Thaddeo Ferreira, [1801 or 1802]., 1802. 4°, disbound. Caption title. Text in 2 columns on first page. In good to very good condition. Remains of small paper tag in upper left corner with old ink manuscript number "2252". 7, (1) pp. *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION. Glosses on 4 poems; signed in print on p. 7. The advertisement on the final page promises a new work out in 1802 and lists 6 other works available.The "Guerra das Laranjas," a prelude to the Peninsular War, got its nickname from the orange-tree branches that Godoy sent to D. Maria Luisa as trophies taken from Elvas, a town he had not captured. In early 1801 D. João, Prince Regent of Portugal, rejected French demands to close Portuguese ports to British ships, and declared war on Spain. French and Spanish troops invaded the Alentejo, soundly defeating the Portuguese. In the peace treaty hastily concluded at Badajoz on 6 June 1801 (by Bonaparte's brother Lucien, French Ambassador to the Court of Madrid, Manuel Godoy, and Luis Pinto de Sousa, the Portuguese plenipotentiary), Portugal agreed to cede the border fortress of Olivença to Spain, to pay Spain for the cost of the war, reimburse her subjects for damages incurred, and to close Portuguese ports to British ships.José Daniel Rodrigues da Costa (1757-1832), a native of Leira, was a fervent supporter of D. Miguel. He held many government posts in Portugal and was a prolific writer: his works (the earliest of which dates to 1777) were very popular and often reprinted during his lifetime. Innocêncio uncharacteristically declines to catalogue all the author's works: "Parece-me desnecessario além de difficil, apresentar aqui um catalogo geral de todas as suas producções." Rodrigues da Costa was a poet of arcadismo, using the name Josino Leirense in the Nova Arcadia. His narrative poem O balão dos habitantes da lua (1819) is considered the first Portuguese work of science fiction.*** Not in Innocêncio; on the author, see IV, 304-5; XII, 295; Aditamentos 229-30. For numerous other works by this author, see Ayres Magalhães de Sepúlveda, Dicionário bibliográfico da Guerra Peninsular II, 214-16. Not located in Porbase. Copac repeats British Library only.
