About this Item: Lisbon, Na Offic. de Francisco Sabino dos Santos, 1777., 1777. 4°, recent plain wrappers, edges tinted blue. Woodcut Portuguese royal arms on title page. Small piece missing from lower inner corner of title page. Light browning, foxing, and waterstains. In good condition. 13 pp., (1 blank l.). *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION. The pamphlet contains two poems, each signed at the end "J.P.S.", honoring D. Maria I's ascension to the throne. The first is titled "Trecetos elegiacos" (pp. 3-6); p. 7 contains the divisional title "Na feliz acclamação da Augustissima Rainha N.S. D. Maria I. de Portugal" (verso blank), with a "Romance" on pp. 9-13.D. Maria (b. 1734) became Portugal's first queen regnant on February 24, 1777, after the death of her father D. José I. She reigned until her death in 1816, although by 1792 she was suffering such severe mental illness that her son, the future D. João VI, ruled in her stead (as regent starting in 1799).José Pedro Soares (1760-1843), the possible author, was a professor régio, native of Lisbon, who went to the Azores to teach Latin grammar, never returning to the mainland. He published works on Latin grammar and orthography, a translation of Vergil's Eclogues, as well as several poems and collections of verse.*** Fonseca, Pseudónimos p. 137 identifies J.P.S. as José Pedro Soares, author of the Diario secular, Lisbon 1794. Guerra Andrade p. 136. Not in Innocêncio (on José Pedro Soares see V, 91; XIII, 161). On José Pedro Soares see also Grande enciclopédia, XXIX, 332.

About this Item: Lisbon, na Nova Ofic. de Jozé da Silva, 1742., 1742. 4°, later plain wrappers. Woodcut royal arms of Portugal on title page. Woodcut ornament at end. Typographical headpiece on recto of second leaf. Some stains. Overall in sound, but near good condition. (6 ll.). *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION? Fifteen poems by a variety of authors mourning the death of the Infante D. Francisco of Portugal (1691-1742), Duke of Beja, third son of D. Pedro II by his second wife, Maria Sophia of Neuburg. The authors include Luis Borges de Carvalho, Antonio Correa Viana, Sebastião José da Madureira, and João Quintino Placido Maciso. Antonio Gomes Silva Leão contributed a poem in which every line begins and ends with "O," and which is eccentrically (if not elegantly) set to take advantage of that fact.*** Coimbra, Miscelâneas 810, 6545, 6714. Not in Innocêncio or Fonseca, Pseudónimos. Porbase locates one copy, at the Biblioteca Nacional de Portugal (calling for xiv, [2] pp., no doubt in error, due to the fact that the number "XIV" denoting the fourteenth poem appears at the top of the verso of the fifth unnumbered leaf).

About this Item: McSweeney's. Hardcover. Condition: Near Fine. "English as She is Spoke: The new guide of the conversation, in Portuguese and English, in two parts." José Da Fonseca, Pedro Carolino. Edited by Paul Collins. McSweeney's. Hardcover. Issued without jacket. To my knowledge, a back-cover sticker or barcode sticker was NOT added to the back-cover of this title. I have never seen one (though see these only infrequently). First published, 1855. First McSweeney's edition. First-printing (of two hardcover printings before the paperback). This is the first book of The Collin's Library, a McSweeney's imprint for 'classic' books. Half-binding; grey-blue and dark-blue cloths. The Collin's Library used a similar design style on all but "Curious Men", a fine title, but rather a disappointing disappointing effort. Condition: Near Fine. Slight rub to the title-block on the front-cover. ********** I make every effort not to overstate grade. Descriptions are as honest as I know to make them. Please make your own judgment accordingly. **********All books are packed in acid-free bags to protect from rubbing, and wrapped in bubble-wrap as needed. Will ship in box with additional padding - whatever is necessary to ensure that the book(s) is delivered in the same condition as when packed. If shipped in a flat, the same care for protection of the book will be taken. *****Books ship to continental U.S. only. Seller Inventory # 411-McS

About this Item: Lisbon, Na Impressão Liberal, 1821., 1821. Folio (29.5 x 21.7 cm.), unbound, cut at bottom edge. Some foxing; small ink stain in outer margin. Overall in good to very good condition. Broadside. *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION of this broadside prospectus soliciting subscriptions for what would be known as Retratos dos membros da Associaçao começada no Porto em 22 de Janeiro de 1818, e das mais pessoas que com elles cooperavam para a revolução politica de 24 de Agosto de 1820. Francisco António da Silva Oeirense (1797?-1870?), influential liberal, painter, engraver, (lithographer?), designer, and dealer in paintings and engravings, was responsible for much of the effort that went into this project. He conceived and directed the series, produced the original (apparently) watercolor portraits from life of all 33 subjects, engraved some of them himself, and supervised the engraving of others. In addition to Silva Oeirense, engravers were Domingos José da Silva, José Vicente de Sales, Joaquim Pedro, Mariano Gonçalves de Araujo, Constantino de Fontes, and A.J. Quinto. Published in 1822, complete collections were preceded by an engraved dedication-title, Ao Muito Excelso, Magnanimo e constante Primeiro Rei Constitucional, o Senhor D. João Sexcto . According to Innocêncio, complete collections were sold at the time for 24$000 reis, then a huge sum. This prospectus sets the price to subscribers to the entire collection at 19$200. The portraits depicted: 1. Manuel Fernandes Tomás; 2. José Ferreira Borges; 3. José da Silva Carvalho; 4. João Ferreira Viana; 5. Duarte Lessa; 6. José Maria Lopes Carneiro; 7. José Gonçalves dos Santos Silva; 8. José Pereira de Meneses; 9. Francisco Gomes da Silva; 10. João da Cunha Soto Maior; 11. José de Melo e Castro de Abreu; 12. José Maria Xavier de Araújo; 13.

Manuel Vaz Pinto Guedes; 32. Francisco António Pamplona Moniz; 33. Gaspar Teixeira de Magalhães e Lacerda. Ernesto Soares calls Silva Oeirense a "figura de extraordinário relêvo dentro da arte portuguesa ." but whose work as engraver and designer was "de muito reduzido valor". He had an important role in the establishment of the Oficina Regia Litografica, and was a founder of the Academia das Belas Artes de Lisboa, being most active in that institution during its early years. From 1838 until at least 1842 he presided over the chair for Historical Engraving at the Academia Portuense de Belas Artes.*** We have not been able to find any reference to this prospectus. For the portraits, see Innocêncio, VII, 142; Soares & Ferreira Lima, Dicionário de inconografia portuguesa 746A and 2326; and especially Soares, História da gravura artística em Portugal 1415 (listing only 32 portraits, and stating that he was never able to see the portrait of Francisco António Pamplona Moniz).

About this Item: Lisbon, Na Typ. de José Rodrigues Galhardo, 1834., 1834. 8°, contemporary plain blue wrappers. Uncut and unopened. In fine condition. 59 pp., (2 blank ll.). *** First Edition in Portuguese of this translation of a letter by Las Cases to Napoleon's son Lucien Bonaparte, written in 1816 and published in London, 1818 as part of Memoirs of Emanuel Augustus Dieudonné Count de las Casas, communicated by himself, Comprising a letter from Count de las Casas at St. Helena to Lucien Bonaparte, giving a faithful account of the voyage of Napoleon to St. Helena, his residence, manner of living, and treatment on that island; also a letter addressed by Count de las Casas to Lord Bathurst (pp. 97-159 of the London, 1818 edition). The appearance of this text is interesting to see in Portugal at this time, given the defeat in May 1834 of the absolutist D. Miguel by the more liberal D. Pedro and his daughter D. Maria II.Emmanuel-Augustin-Dieudonné-Joseph, comte de Las Cases (1766-1842) emigrated during the French Revolution to London, where he published an atlas under the name A. Lesage in 1801. Returning to France with the Peace of Amiens, he sided with Napoleon and by 1810 was named count. Meanwhile, beginning in 1803-4, the French editions of his atlas made him a wealthy man. After Napoleon?s second abdication he accompanied the ex-emperor to Saint Helena in 1815, where in barely a year he gathered the material published as the 8-volume Mémorial de Ste Hélène, 1822-23. Although the Mémorial is today considered an untrustworthy source, it raised nostalgia for the Empire in France, and its multitudinous editions earned Las Cases another fortune.*** Not in Ayres de Magalhães Sepúlveda, Dicionário bibliográfico da Guerra Peninsular, which lists only the Mémorial, in several French editions (II, 195-6).

About this Item: Lisbon, Na Typographia de José Baptista Morando, 1844., 1844. Large 8°, early plain green wrappers (creased and torn). Uncut and mostly unopened. In very good condition. (1 l.), iv, 34 pp. *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION of this analysis of a decree of August 1, 1844, asking questions such as whether an ordinary meeting of the Côrtes can suspend civil liberties or can make changes to the limits of state power. This was part of the ongoing battle between the two liberal factions for control of the government. To simplify a very complicated matter, one of the factions favored the similar, more liberal Portuguese constitutions of 1822 and 1838, while the other faction, termed Cartistas, favored the more moderate Carta constitutional promulgated by D. Pedro I, Emperor of Brazil, in his brief capacity as D. Pedro IV, King of Portugal, from Rio de Janeiro in 1826. At the time of this decree, the moderate faction was in power. António Bernardo da Costa Cabral, later 1st Marquês de Tomar, had become de facto Prime Minister after a coup d'état in 1842 (the Duque de Terceira was nominally Prime Minister from February 1842 to May 1846); Costa Cabral assumed the Interior Ministry (officially known as the Ministerio e Secretáriado de Estado dos Negócios do Reino) as well. He ruled dictatorially until being removed from power in 1846; his regime during this period has been termed Cabralismo. *** Not in Fonseca, Pseudónimos.

About this Item: Lisbon, Na Typografia de Bulhões, 1830., 1830. 4°, traces of wrappers, only a few remaining stitches holding it together. Pages 61-84 in 2 columns. Overall in very good, almost fine condition. (4 ll.), 95, (1) pp. *** First and Only Edition in Portuguese. In 1791, as the French Revolution was nearing the height of its fury, Charles-Joseph Bevy published Histoire de la noblesse héréditaire et successive des Gaulois, des François et des autres peuples de l'Europe, which he refers to in a footnote to the "Advertencia do Author" in the present volume. Firmly believing that "o Povo não pode jámais ser Soberano, nem Legislador," he went on to compose the Manuel des révolutions, suivi du parallèle des révolutions des siècles précédens avec celle actuelle. Not surprisingly for a work so opposed to the current political tide, it appeared without place or printer in 1793, and is also a rare book: OCLC locates only 2 copies, both at the Bibliothèque nationale de Paris (464857255 and 457062920). Along with several arguments on the right of kings to rule, Bevy includes a section on Calvinism (pp. 48-60) and another on parallels between earlier rebellions in France and the current one (pp. 61-84).We have not been able to identify the translator, who signs with the initials "J.P.M." The "Soldado Realista" who signs the dedication includes an excerpt from the epic poem O Oriente, by that staunch absolutist José Agostinho de Macedo. He declares that in publishing this manual his aim is to defend the rights of his monarch and the Church, in support of the absolutist King D. Miguel, then in power, who was being opposed by the liberals, led by D. Pedro I, Emperor of Brazil. D. Pedro, the elder brother of D. Miguel, had relinquished his rights to the Portuguese throne in favor of his daughter, D. Maria II.The Abbé Bevy (1738-1830), a Benedictine of the congregation of Saint-Maur, was royal historiographer for the province of Hainaut (now partly in France, partly in Belgium). Bevy asked to be named historiographer of Austrian Hainaut, but the Academy of Brussels opined that he did not have adequate qualifications. Around 1785 he was admitted to membership in that Academy. According to the title page, he was also a member of an academy in Richmond, Virginia.*** Gonçalves Rodrigues, A tradução em Portugal 4173. Not in Canto, Ensaio bibliographico . 1828-1834. Neither "J.P.M." nor "Soldado Realista" is in Fonseca, Pseudónimos or Guerra Andrade Dicionário de pseudónimos. Nor are either cited in Tancredo de Barros Paiva. On Bevy, see E. Mailly, Histoire de l'Academie Imperiale et Royale des Sciences et Belles-Lettres de Bruxelles (1883), p. 454. Porbase locates two copies, both at the Biblioteca Nacional de Portugal.

About this Item: Lisbon, Editorial Confluência, 1946., 1946. Large 8°, original illustrated wrappers. Full-page illustration by António Dacosta on verso of half title; another illustration by the same artist on the front cover. Some very slight foxing to covers. Light toning. Overall in very good condition. Author's signed and dated five-line presentation inscription on blank p. [3]: "Ao Dr. Tomás da Fonseca, // homenagem de muito // respeito e admiração de // Adolfo Casais Monteiro // Lx. 7/II/46". 38 pp., (1 l. colophon). *** FIRST EDITION. Dedicated to António Pedro, this poem consists of the author's hopes and aspirations for Europe, and for Portugal as a part of Europe, following the devastation and misery of the Second World War. An earlier, slightly different version of the poem had been aired on the BBC's Portuguese-language transmission of 23 May 1945.The colophon states that the edition consisted of 200 copies: 15 on papel Ingres PMF, numbered 1 through 15 and signed by the author; 95 on papel Offset S.S. Mate, for subscribers, numbered 16 to 110, signed by the author; and 90 also on papel Offset S.S. Mate, numbered 111 to 200. It is further stated that there were a few extra copies, unnumbered, of which the present copy is one.One of the leading voices of the second generation of Portuguese Modernism, Adolfo Casais Monteiro (Porto 1908-São Paulo 1972) was a poet, literary critic and educator. Monteiro, Leonardo Coimbra and Sant'Ana Dionísio formed the editorial board of Águia in the late 1920s. He was an early and frequent contributor to the review Presença, and beginning with number 33, he joined José Régio and João Gaspar Simões in its direction. Monteiro was actively opposed to the Salazar regime, and was forced into exile in 1954. He spent the rest of his life in Brazil. Monteiro, Luís de Montalvor, and João Gaspar Simões, were among the few who appreciated Fernando Pessoa during Pessoa's lifetime. Monteiro was influential in promoting Pessoa's reputation after Pessoa's death. Provenance: The poet, author of fiction, essayist, historiographer, journalist, teacher, and militant anti-clerical republican [João] Tomás da Fonseca (Mortágua, district of Viseu, 1877-Lisbon, 1968), a freemason, belonged to the Movimento de Unidade Democrática. He wrote well over 20 books on a wide variety of subjects, founded, directed, and contributed to a number of newspapers, magazines and reviews, and was one of the most important sources for republican propaganda in the campaign prior to the establishment of the Portuguese Republic in 1910. He served the first president of the Republic, Teófilo Braga, as hief of staff, and in 1916 was elected senator from the district of Viseu. For opposing the dictatorship of Sidónio Pais, Fonseca spent two months in prison in 1918, and he was imprisoned again in November 1928 for participating in the 20 July revolutionary movement. On several occasions his books were confiscated by the PIDE. In May 1947, he was sent to prison yet again for protesting conditions at the so-called concentration camp of Tarrafal, Cabo Verde. He was the father of the author Branquinho da Fonseca. See Cristina Mello in Biblos, II, 656-7; Dicionário cronológico de autores portugueses, III, 187-90.*** On Casais Monteiro see Fernando J.B. Martinho in Machado, ed., Dicionário de literatura portuguesa, pp. 322-3; Dicionário cronológico de autores portugueses, IV, 360-3; Eugénio Lisboa in Biblos, III, 891-4; and Saraiva and Lopes, História da literatura portuguesa (16th ed.), p. 1043, et passim.

Woodcut Portuguese royal arms on title page. Light dampstains, mostly to first few leaves. In very good condition. 66 pp. *** FIRST separate EDITION. The Testamento had previously been published in the Investigador portuguez. In 1821 it was reprinted by Lourenço Caminha in Obras ineditas, under the title "Carta escripta de Paris, ou Instrucção ao Ser. Príncipe D. José." According to Innocêncio, that edition has numerous textual errors. There is also a Lisbon, 1943 edition.Cunha (1662-1749), a famous progressive politician, diplomat, and economic thinker, served as Ambassador extraordinary to London, Madrid and Paris, and as Minister Plenipotentiary to the Congress of Utrecht in 1712. In this posthumously published Testamento, his most famous work, he advises the future D. José I to appoint Sebastião José de Carvalho e Melo (the future Marquês de Pombal) as his prime minister; to reform the army, navy, and magistracy; to encourage industry and open rivers and canals to navigation; and to be tolerant of different religious beliefs. Negative influence of the Inquisition, and the situation of Jews and New Christians, is discussed on pp. 45-57. In the course of developing a mercantilistic argument regarding Portuguese trade, products of Brazil, such as leather, sugar, tobacco, pão do Brazil, cravo do Maranhão, cocoa, and vanilla are repeatedly mentioned in connection with Portuguese trade with other European countries on pp. 58-64, as are wines from continental Portugal and Madeira, salt from Setúbal, and importation of fabrics.*** Innocêncio XVI, 14; on the author, see V, 282-3 and Fonseca, Aditamentos p. 274.

Wood-engraved tailpiece on p. 29. In good to very good condition. Old white rectangular paper tag on front wrapper with shelfmark ("S 1 98"). Tag obscures first part of old ink inscription (either a dedication or an ownership signature): "[illegible] Conde de Villa Real." 29 pp., (1 blank l.). *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION of this work in defense of Manuel Antonio Martins, who served as prefect of Cabo Verde ca. 1834: "Éra ha muitos annos um dos individuos mais abastados, e mais bem estabelecidos d'aquellas Ilhas," reports the anonymous author, until the press and his enemies destroyed his reputation. Martins was appointed prefect of Cabo Verde by D. Pedro (regent for D. Maria II), who said that in that position, "o Prefeito de Cabo-Verde [Martins] tinha feito mais em tres mezes, do que todos os outros fariam em tres annos!" The Miguelistas seem to have attacked Martins for every action he took. He was accused of tearing out all the vines in Ilha de Santo Antão and replacing them with coffee trees. Document 1 (pp. 14-18) recounts the discussions about rejuvenating agriculture on Cabo Verde that led to the tearing up of vineyards. Martins was also accused of filling the islands with prisons. Document 2 (pp. 19-25), signed by José Joaquim Lopes de Lima, deputy to the Cortes for Cabo Verde, gives details on the horrendous state of Cabo Verde under D. Miguel, and the many improvements that Martins instituted.Document 3 (pp. 26-29) was written by the United States Consul in Cabo Verde, William G. Merrill, and was originally published in 1835 in the New-York Gazette and General Advertiser. Merrill recounts the arrival in Cabo Verde of 225 soldiers loyal to D. Miguel. These soldiers rounded up the province's officials, dragged them to the cemetery and shot them, then declared D. Miguel the legitimate king. Diplomatic personnel such as Merrill were forced to agree or be shot. Merrill believed that Martins's calm kept even worse things from happening. After a few days, the Miguelista soldiers commandeered ships and sailed off - for the United States, they said. In case they made it there, which Merrill thought unlikely, he gave a description of their leader (thin, thirtyish, and "uma catadura de assassino, como eu nunca ví").*** Biblioteca Pública de Braga, Catálogo do Fundo Barca-Oliveira, p. 100.

Page 215 wrongly numbered 315. *** FIRST EDITION of this classic work, a vital source for the state of Brazil on the eve of independence. It contains the first printing of the eyewitness account of the discovery of Brazil by Pero Vaz de Caminha, Cabral's secretary. The alphabetical index at the end of each volume includes many Indian words.Ayres do Casal's work became widely known in Europe after James Henderson adapted (and at times merely translated) parts of it in his History of the Brazil, London 1821 (cf. Borba de Moraes [1983] II, 398).Ayres do Casal has been called the "Father of Brazilian geography." A native of Portugal (b. ca. 1754?), he spent some years in Brazil, returning to Portugal around 1821 and dying soon thereafter. A second edition of the Corografia appeared in Rio de Janeiro, 1833 amd a third at Rio, 1845. A facsimile was printed by the Instituto Nacional do Livro, 1945-1947.Provenance: Armorial bookplate ("Condes do Bomfim" appears beneath the arms); see Avelar Duarte, Ex-libris portugueses heráldicos p. 275 (nº 770). The first Conde, José Lucio Travassos Valdez (1787-1862), served in the Peninsular Wars and was in charge of putting down both the rebellion under the Conde de Amarante in 1823 and the Miguelist insurrection in Tras-os-Montes a few years later. He was governor of Madeira and served with Costa Cabral and Rodrigo da Fonseca on the Conselho. When the Maria da Fonte movement broke out he was named commander of the government forces in the south, but having been captured in late 1846 by the Duque de Saldanha, was deported along with his two eldest sons to Angola for the duration of the war. Travassos Valdez's oldest son, José Bento Travassos Valdez, succeeded to the title. The third Conde, José Lucio Travassos Valdez (1841-1926) had been born in Luanda.*** Innocêncio V, 367-8; XVI, 124-5. Sacramento Blake VI, 33. Valle Cabral 464, with lengthy note.
