About this Item: Porto, Na Typographia Commercial Portuense, 1836., 1836. 2 parts in 1 volume. 4°, contemporary quarter straight-grained purple morocco over marbled boards (some wear to corners, rubbed), smooth spine gilt with bands and short title (faded), text block edges sprinkled blue-green. Decorative typographical border and different small woodcuts of a ship on title page of each part. Typographical designs above and below half tiles of both parts. Decorative rules in text. Light browning in second part. In very good condition. 86 pp., (3 ll. subscribers), 1 large folding table; 112 pp. *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION of this handbook for Portuguese merchants. The extensive comments and annotations suggest that this is the firsthand account by someone who knew his business, rather than a reworking of earlier handbooks.The preliminary matter includes sections on Portuguese currency, weights, and measures, and on the Banco Commercial do Porto, (pp. 9-10) which had been established on January 1st of the year this book was published. Moura discusses the mechanics of currency exchange, applying the principles to England, France (the Banco de França is discussed on pp. 33-34), Amsterdam, Hamburg, Spain (with subsections on Barcelona [pp. 54-55], Alicante and Valença, and Gibraltar), Genoa, Livorno, Venice, Trieste, Russia (subsections on St. Petersburg, Archangel, Moscow, Libau in Latvia, Riga; on Russian banks, pp. 74-75), and Vienna. Pages 78-80 explain how shares and capital work in a joint-stock company. Pages 81-86 are an index to part 1, ending with a list of errata and an explanation of arithmetical symbols (addition, multiplication, etc. - learning foreign exchange must have been a steep learning curve for anyone who didn't yet know those!). Part 1 is followed by a three-leaf list of subscribers. Part 2 deals with rates of exchange in Antwerp, Brussels, and Lille; Augsburg; Bergamo; Berlin, Dresden and Leipzig; Basel, Berne, and Geneva; Bologna; Cologne; Copenhagen; Constantinople; Danzig; Dublin; Edinburgh; Liege; Milan, Naples, Palermo, and Turin; Stockholm; Rome; the Mediterranean (Malta, Argel, Tunis, Morocco); and Egypt (Cairo). In the section on the United States (pp. 34-43), Moura gives an overview of currency under the British, the use of paper money, and the creation of a federal currency. He notes, however, that various parts of the country still have local currencies, and gives details and exchange rates for 1) New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Virginia, Kentucky, Ohio, Tennessee, Indiana, and Mississippi; 2) New York ("na Carolina Septentrional"?!); 3) New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, and Maryland. Also mentioned are Georgia and South Carolina. A brief history of banking in the United States (pp. 36-37) is followed by a summary of rules governing letters of exchange, including interest rates and penalties for New England, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, North and South Carolina, Georgia and Louisiana.Mexico is given one page (p. 43), which includes a brief mention of the former Spanish colonies (Guatemala, Colombia, Peru, Chile, Buenos Aires, Paraguay) and of Cuba and Puerto Rico, the only current Spanish possessions. The section on Brazil (pp. 44-47) relates Brazilian currency to Portuguese. The section on the West Indies (pp. 48-52) includes a section on Jamaica.In India (pp. 53-62), there are sections on Calcutta, Madras, Bombay, Surate, Colombo (Ceylon), Goa, Calicut, and Cachau (Tonquin, in modern North Vietnam).The end of Part 2 (pp. 63-110) gives more principles of exchange, including a discussion of the purchase and sale of letters of credit.The folding "Mappa demonstrativo" shows currency conversions for many of the cities in Part 2.*** Goldsmiths'-Kress no. 29538.101.

In 1816 he was sent from Rio de Janeiro to Mozambique, where he was chief physician, and from there in 1819 to India, to act as Intendente de Agricultura. Lima Leitão was a professor at the Royal School of Surgery in Lisbon, president of the Lisbon Society of Medical Sciences, and an active contributor to the Portuguese medical press. He served twice in the Cortes and published numerous works on medicine and politics, as well as some poetry and a translation of Virgil. *** Innocêncio I, 169.

Veiu para Portugal nos principios do seculo XVIII, e estabeleceu-se em Lisboa com casa de venda de drogas medicinaes, e preparações pharmaceuticas. Naturalisando-se portuguez, adquiriu sufficiente conhecimento e practica da lingua, para n"ella compor as obras seguintes, que publicou com grande proveito da nação, segundo diz Mattos, na Bibl. Cirurgica, discurso 2.º pag. 156. 1393) Historia das plantas da Europa, e das mais usadas que vem da Asia, Africa e da America.

Esta obra gosava, ainda não ha muitos annos, de bastante estimação, e tornára-se tão rara e procurada, que sei de exemplares vendidos até 3:200 réis. Hoje vale muito menos, e creio que o preço regular dos exemplares que apparecem ha sido de 1:200 até 1:600 réis". [EN] 2 volumes. In 8º (17x10 cm) with [liv] -866 - [lxxx] pags.
