These include details of St. Francis Xavier's activities and of the customs of Goa, Ceylon, Malacca, Sumatra, Java, Tolo, Siam, Japan (I, 61-143) and China (I, 152-96). The second volume contains essays by José Silvestre Ribeiro (II, 6-96) and José Feliciano de Castilho Barreto e Noronha (II, 97-252) that give biographical and bibliographical information and a critical evaluation of Lucena's style and content.The Historia da vida do Padre Francisco de Xavier, e do que fizeram na India os mais religiosos da Companhia de Jesus, Lisbon 1600, is a classic of Portuguese literature. The text "receives a glowing fervour from the author's evident delight in his subject. His command of clear, fluent, vigorous prose, his skillful use of words and abundant power of description, enable him to convey this enthusiasm to his readers" (Bell, Portuguese Literature p. 243).

About this Item: Rio de Janeiro, Bernardo Xavier Pinto de Sousa, 1858., 1858. 11 volumes in 1. 8°, contemporary green quarter morocco (extremities a bit worn), flat spine, gilt letter, with horizontal gilt fillets. Internally very fine.Overall a fine copy. Presentation inscription on recto of front free endpaper: "Ao Exm° Am° Jorge Cesar de Figaniére, tributo de admiração ao talento, á evidição ao merito litterario," signed by the brother of the translator "J.F. de Castilho". Lithographic portrait, 119 pp.; 102 pp., (1 blank l.); 103 pp.; 784 pp. [unnumbered blank leaf after p. 604]. *** FIRST EDITION of the first Portuguese translation of the Amores. The translation, in volumes I-III, is followed by the lengthy Grinalda Ovidiana, with extensive notes on the text, a guide to mythological figures and a life of Ovid. On the leaf immediately following the title-page of volume I, the translator alerts "adolescentes de um e outro sexo" that the present work contains "mysterios de iniquidade," and that if they read it despite his warning, they have only themselves to blame. (Could there be a better way to entice teenagers to read the classics?) The only earlier translation into Portuguese of any of Ovid's works appears to be Castilho's translation of the Metamorphoses, of which only volume I was published, Lisbon, 1841. He also translated the Fasti and the Ars amatoria, Lisbon, 1862.Antonio Feliciano de Castilho (1800-1875) ranks as one of the three best Romantic writers in Portugal, along with Almeida Garrett and Herculano. He published numerous works of poetry and prose, founded and edited the Revista universal Lisbonense (1841-45) and began the series "Livraria Classica Portuguesa," for which he wrote the studies of Bernardes and Garcia de Resende. His translation of Faust roused a heated controversy among students of German language and literature ("a questão faustiana"), and his 1865 condemnation of the young writers of Coimbra-Antero de Quental, Teofilo Braga, Vieira de Castro - for "nebulosidade" incited Quental to write Bom senso e bom gôsto.A native of Lisbon, Castilho went blind at the age of six but nevertheless earned a degree in law from Coimbra.
