About this Item: Porto, Na Primeira Officina Portuense, 1765., 1765. 4°, disbound. Minor stains. Overall good to very good condition. 11 pp. *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION of this poem celebrating the good government of João de Almada e Melo, who was responsible for the late-eighteenth-century renovation of the area in Porto known as Baixa do Porto. Almada, born in Troviscoso, Monção, in 1703, followed his father's footsteps to a military career at age 15, and by 1745 was a colonel in charge of the regiment at Cascais. When the earthquake struck Lisbon in 1755, his regiment was called in to replace D. José I's bodyguards. Family ties with Sebastião José de Carvalho e Melo helped him earn the trust of the future Marquês de Pombal, so that in February 1757, Almada e Melo was named governador de armas do Porto and dispatched to stifle an uprising in Porto against the new Companhia Geral da Agricultura das Vinhas do Alto Douro.Almada e Melo rapidly brought the situation in Porto under control, and then remained in Porto the rest of his life. In 1761, he began overseeing the renovation of the part of Porto outside the medieval walls. D. José created the Junta das Obras Publicas in 1762, applying to Porto the same means that were being employed to rebuild Lisbon. This major effort of urban planning and renovation was funded by a tax on wine. Public buildings constructed under Almada e Melo's tenure include the Hospital de Santo António, the Casa da Feitoria Inglesa, and the Real Academia da Marinha e do Comércio (today the Reitoria da Universidade do Porto). In 1764, the year before this poem appeared, Almada e Melo was named governador da Justiça e Relação do Porto.Almada e Melo died in 1786, and is buried in Monção. The Rua do Almada in Porto is named after him, as is a prestigious prize awarded every two years for the best rehabilitation of a historic building in Porto. *** Not located in Innocêncio. Not located in Coimbra, Miscelâneas. On Almada e Melo, see Joaquim Jaime B. Ferreira Alves, João de Almada e Melo (1703-1786): o homem e a cidade, Porto, 2008.

About this Item: Lisbon, Na Officina de Francisco Borges de Sousa, 1765., 1765. 4 works in 1 volume. 4°, contemporary mottled sheep (a few pinpoint wormholes on covers, slight wear, recased with recent endleaves), spine gilt with raised bands in five compartments, crimson leather lettering piece in second compartment from head, gilt letter, text-block edges marbled. Woodcut vignette on title page. In good to very good condition. (3 ll.), 64 pp., (1 l.). *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION of this Arte poetica in verse. It is usually encountered bound with the three works which follow. That they belong together is demonstrated in the licenses and censura statements (including a Censura "Do Ordinario" by Diogo Barbosa Machado). The final leaf contains on its recto additional licenses, one of which is signed by a Craesbeck, and a few lines of errata; the verso is blank. There appear to be copies which contain an extra collective title page at the beginning, Obras em verso.Francisco de Pina e Mello (1695-1773), who rarely used the "de Sá" part of his name which appears on the title pages of the present four volumes, was born and died at Montemor-o-Velho. Coming from a family of the lower nobility, he studied at Coimbra but never took a degree, reading what interested him, being particularly influenced by the Baroque. A trip to France in 1753 put him in contact with pre-romantic French authors. He ran afoul of the Marquês de Pombal, was imprisoned, and spent his final years engrossed in literary theory. A member of the Real Academia de História, the Academia dos Aplicados, and the Academia dos Ocultos, he was something of a contradiction as a poet: bucolic and very much influenced by Gongorism, condemned by the árchadas (Correa Garção and Cruz e Silva considered him to be marginal, "o corvo do Mondego"), but finally defending Neoclassicism. In short, he is representative of the contradictions of the confused pre-romantic aesthetics of the period in a synthesis of Gongorism with French Neoclassicism. See Álvaro Manuel Machado in Dicionário de literatura portuguesa, p. 306; also Joaquim Correia in Biblos, III, 604-8.*** Innocêncio III, 35; on the author, see pp. 33-6. *** BOUND WITH: MELLO [or Melo], Francisco de Pina de Sá e de.

About this Item: Lisbon, Na Regia Officina Typografica, n.d. (1776)., 1776. 4°, contemporary plain beige wrappers (small burn hole in upper wrapper, stitched, text block edges sprinkled red. Woodcut arms of the Marquês de Pombal on title page. Woodcut initial on p. [3]. Overall in fine condition. 14 pp., (1 blank l.). *** Second edition, rare, of a work which first appeared in 1774. The verses by Cruz e Silva are indicated by an asterisk; more than half the poems are so noted. These are among the few poems published during the lifetime of this major poet, the overwhelming majority of whose work appeared posthumously.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 in 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. His poem O Hyssope was based 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. Bell recounts the tale that Cruz e Silva "was summoned to read his satire to the all-powerful [Marquês de] Pombal in the presence of the infuriated bishop, and that the poem proved too much for the gravity of the minister, who appointed him a judge in Rio de Janeiro" in 1776 (Portuguese Literature pp. 273-4). O Hyssope was a source of inspiration for Francisco de Mello Franco's famous burlesque poem Reino da estupidez. Martins de Carvalho notes (p. 7) that many contemporaries considered O Hyssope "muito superior" to Pope's Rape of the Lock.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.Gomes de Carvalho was one of the four founders of the Arcadia Ulyssiponense in 1756, along with Cruz e Silva, Manuel Nicolau Esteves Negrão and Pedro António Corrêa Garção. His date of birth was probably between 1728 and 1732; he died in Lisbon, 1800. With a law degree from Coimbra, he held various high government posts under D. Maria II, and was a knight of the Order of Christ and a member of the Academia Real das Sciencias de Lisboa.*** See Imprensa Nacional p. 102 (without collation; no copy in the library-archive of the Imprensa Nacional, which does possess the 1774 edition: listed as item 120, p. 291). See Innocêncio I, 124; VII, 373; VIII, 128; XXII, 236 and 532; Aditamentos p. 34 for biographical and bibliographical information about António Diniz da Cruz e Silva, and an appreciation of his dithyrambs, but without mention of this specific work; also VII, 313-4 (citing the present work only as appearing in volume III of the Obras of Cruz e Silva), and XIX, 254 (citing the 1774 edition of the present work), for biographical and bibliographical information regarding Theotonio Gomes de Carvalho, but without mention of the present edition. For the reasons stated above, the edition of Lisboa: Regia Officina Typografica, 1766 mentioned in Porbase (six copies, all in the Biblioteca Nacional de Portugal) is also an impossibility; Porbase locates two copies of the 1776 edition: in the Biblioteca Nacional de Portugal and the Biblioteca João Paulo II-Universidade Católica Portuguesa.

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).

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.

Paulo da Universidade de Coimbra a que deu o título de Archiathenaeum que se poderia traduzir por 'O grande colégio'.

José Miguel João de Portugal, as licenças em português e «Ao leitor» em dísticos latinos.
