About this Item: Lisbon, Editora Arcádia, 1972., 1972. 8°, publisher's buckram with dust jacket (jacket slightly frayed, especially at head of spine, and with some discoloration). Water damage to rear wrapper. Still, in good condition; fine internally. Author's presentation copy with signed four-line inscription on recto of front free endleaf: "Ao Américo," // fraternalmente [?] // o // Hernâni Cidade". 449 pp. *** Third edition, "revista e ampliada".Hernâni [António] Cidade (Redondo 1887-Évora 1975) is best known as an author of literary and cultural history and of literary biography. For a half century, he was a major force in the cultural life of Portugal. Cidade taught school in Coimbra, Leiria, Porto and Lisbon before moving on to an illustrious career in higher education at the Universities of Porto and Lisbon. In his youth Cidade was linked to the modernist movement, having been involved with the reviews Águia and Seara Nova, among others. He also collaborated in reviews such as those of the Faculdades de Letras of both Lisbon and Porto, newspapers (especially O Primeiro de Janeiro), and numerous collective projects such as the Grande enciclopédia portuguesa e brasileira and Dicionário de literatura. With Joaquim de Carvalho and Mário de Azevedo Gomes he edited the Diário liberal (Lisbon, 1934-1935); with Reynaldo dos Santos and Bernardo Marques he founded Colóquio - revista de artes e letras (1959-1970), and with Jacinto do Prado Coelho, in 1971, Colóquio / Letras (these last two published by the Gulbenkian Foundation).Provenance: Américo Cortez Pinto (1896-1979), physician, writer, poet and historian, native of the freguesia de Cortes in the concelho de Leiria. "Zezinha" is probably his wife. Américo Cortez Pinto studied at Coimbra, interned at Leira, served as a parliamentary deputy, a member of the Lisbon municipal council, and inspector of health studies, among other posts. He contributed to literary reviews such as A Tradição, Contemporânea, A Galera, Letras e Artes, and Ícaro, of which he was one of the founders, along with Ernesto Gonçalves, Cabral do Nascimento, and Luís Vieira de Castro. In addition to a considerable output of poetry, prose, literary and historical works, he is best known for the polemical Da famosa arte da imprimissão: da imprensa em Portugal às cruzadas d'Além-Mar (1948), in which he defended the priority of Leiria in Portuguese Christian typography. While Chaves currently is agreed to have been the earliest Portuguese Christian printing site, Cortez Pinto's investigations and conclusions regarding the diffusion of printing in Africa and Asia by the Portuguese remain valuable. Hernâni Cidade was one of Cortez Pinto's closest friends. Others were Afonso Lopes Vieira, Carlos Queiroz, Lino António, António José Saraiva, Sebastião Pestana, and Mário Saa. On Cortez Pinto, see Paulo J. Pedrosa S. Gomes in Biblos, IV, 179-80; also Dicionário cronológico de authores portugueses, III, 501-3; and Grande enciclopédia, VII, 818 and Actualização III, 498.*** See Álvaro Manuel Machado, Dicionário de literatura portuguesa, p. 128; Maria de Lourdes Belchior in Biblos I, 1132-4; Dicionário cronológico de autores portugueses, III, 344-5; Grande enciclopedia VI, 751; Actualização III, 226.

About this Item: Lisbon, Seara Nova, 1968., 1968. 8°, original illustrated wrappers. Some browning. Overall in very good condition. Editor's signed eight-line presentation inscription on half title "Ao querido Américo, // esta pequenissima incursão // em domînios que são mais // seus do que meus // Com um grande abraço // próspero // do // Hernâni Cidade". xiii pp., (1 l.), 63 pp., (4 ll.). *** Fourth edition, "corrigida e ampliada," of the present selection. The Fenix renascida is a classic anthology of Portuguese "Gongorist" poetry. The popularity of the work in its time can perhaps be judged from the fact that the satirist Nicolau Tolentino (1741-1811) mentions wealthy nuns who memorized whole volumes of the Fenix (see Bell, Portuguese Literature p. 276).The Fenix is also important for Brazilian literature, since it contains two poems by Bernardo Vieira Ravasco (b. Bahia, 1619), brother of P. Antonio Vieira, considered a great poet by his contemporaries. The Fenix includes what are apparently the only two works of his to have been printed. One of these is included in the present anthology, a sonnet in Spanish entitled "A hum papagayo de Palacio, que fallava muyto" (p. 19, here attributed to an anonymous author).Among the Portuguese authors represented here, in addition to those mentioned above, are Soror Violante do Ceo, Francisco de Vasconcelos, D. Tomás de Noronha, D. Francisco Manuel de Melo, and André Nunes da Silva. The editor and compiler of this selection, Hernâni [António] Cidade (Redondo 1887-Évora 1975), is best known as an author of literary and cultural history and of literary biography. For a half century, he was a major force in the cultural life of Portugal.

About this Item: Porto, Renascença Portuguesa, 1923., 1923. 8°, contemporary or near-contemporary maroon half sheep over marbled boards (spine faded), spine gilt with raised bands in five compartments, gilt letter in second compartment, marbled endleaves, top edge rouged, original illustrated wrappers bound in. Halftone portrait of a Japanese woman tipped onto front wrapper. Publisher's mark on title page. In very good to fine condition. Initials "F.L." ("Fernando [?] de [?] Landa" [?] ) stamped in gilt at foot of spine. Frontispiece, 279 pp., (3, 1 blank ll.). *** FIRST EDITION. Wenceslau de Moraes (Lisbon, 1854-Tokushima, 1929) was one of the most important interpreters of Japan to the West, playing a role for the Portuguese similar to that of Lafcadio Hearn (a contemporary) for the English-speaking world. Moraes's works are steeped in orientalism and exoticism. He was a noted translator of haiku, and wrote verse influenced by Symbolism.After studying at the Naval College, Moraes served aboard several warships of the Portuguese Navy. In 1885 he traveled for the first time to Macao. Having settled there, he served as deputy to the captain of the harbor and taught at the Macao Secondary School from its creation in 1894. He also married Vong-Io-Chan (a.k.a. Atchan), a Chinese woman with whom he had two sons, and he established a friendship with the celebrated poet Camilo Pessanha. In 1889 Moraes traveled for the first time to Japan, a country that charmed him, and where he returned several times in the following years on official business. He visited Japan in 1897 with the governor of Macao and was received by the Emperor Meiji. The following year he deserted Atchan and his two sons to move to Japan, where he took up a post as consul in Kobe.Over the next thirty years, Wenceslau de Moraes wrote prolifically, becoming the great Portuguese source of information about the East. He shared his intimate experiences of day-to-day life in Japan with readers in several Portuguese newspapers and magazines. Moraes had a love affair with Ó-Yoné Fukumoto. After she fell ill and died, Moraes renounced his post as consul and moved to Tokushima, her birth place. In the face of growing hostility from the local inhabitants, he began to dress, eat and live like the Japanese. He lived with Ko-Haru, Ó-Yoné's niece, until Ko-Haru's death. The increasingly reclusive Moraes died in Tokushima in 1929. He is honored with a small museum atop Mount Bizan in that town.Renascença Portuguesa was a cultural and civic group founded in 1911 by Teixeira de Pascoaes, Jaime Cortesão, Raúl Proença, António Sérgio, Leonardo Coimbra, Álvaro Pinto, Augusto Casimiro, and others. The group's literary review, Á Aguia, continued publication until 1932. Pascoaes, Proença, and Sérgio soon disagreed on the long-term goals of Renascença Portuguesa, and the movement became the mouthpiece of Saudosismo. The educational influence of the Renascença Portuguesa continued to be felt through its Universidades Populares and hundreds of publications under the Renascença Portuguesa imprint on history, law, economy, literature, etc. On Renascença Portuguesa, see Mário Garcia in Biblos IV, 694.*** Not in Kyoto Nipponalia, which lists other works by the author.
