Item Description: [VISTA INTEGRAL DE LISBOA A PARTIR DA MARGEM SUL DO RIO TEJO] Por Friederich Schoeneman. Hamburgo [Alemanha] 1756. Gravura de 41x116 cm. em moldura de madeira dourada com passepartout e vidro de museu. Impressão utilizando duas chapas gravadas sobre dois fólios separados, juntos posteriormente por uma carcela. Gravura de grande dimensão e qualidade gráfica. Magnifica vista panorâmica da cidade de Lisboa (anterior ao terramoto de 1755) no final do século XVII ou início do século XVIII, tomada a partir da margem Sul do rio Tejo, representando a cidade com grande pormenor. Desde o Mosteiro de S. Vicente de Fora a montante, até ao Forte de S. Julião da Barra a jusante. É possível distinguir em pormenor todos os conjuntos edificados da cidade (e não apenas os principais edifícios como é habitual noutras gravuras) assim como os seus habitantes nas suas tarefas diárias, tal como é usual nos mapas holandeses a partir Ortelius. Ao centro, em rodapé, apresenta uma cartela com a palavra "Lissabon" ladeada por dois homens, figuras de acompanhamento trajando ao estilo do século XVII, segurando um deles o Escudo Real português (anterior a D. João V) e o outro a Esfera Armilar. Abaixo encontra-se uma pequena carta marítima da Barra do Rio Tejo. No extremo direito encontra-se uma fogueira da Inquisição e uma forca (tripé ao estilo inglês do Tyborn Tree) para execução de criminosos, ambas em funcionamento. Apresenta uma extensa legenda dos locais notáveis da cidade (constituída por 71 referências) e em duas línguas: Alemão e Francês. Trabalho de autoria de Friederich Schoeneman, não se encontra presente qualquer referência na bibliografia consultada. PANORAMIC VIEW OF LISBON - LISSABON - 17th-18th Century.

MANUSCRITO SÉC. XVIII - D. JOSÉ I

Item Description: Carta grande de privilégios passada pelo Doutor Estêvão Galego Vidigal, Juiz Conservador da Casa da Moeda de Lisboa, a Manuel Rodrigues da Fonseca, atribuindo-lhe o cargo de moedeiro do número dos 104 ?em o lugar que se acha vago por desistência que dele fez seu tio Manuel Ferreira da Fonseca?, através da qual são concedidos privilégios, liberdades e isenções próprias dos Moedeiros da Casa da Moeda. Contém traslado de carta pequena de privilégios de 9 de Junho de 1752 [reinado de D. José I]. Em 1 fólio manuscrito sobre pergaminho a uma só mão, ao estilo caligráfico da época. Diploma emoldurado com caixilho dourado de 83 x 97 cm. Mancha caligráfica: de 65x76 cm. Raríssimo documento do qual não encontrámos qualquer outro similar, até à data. Os privilégios incluiam honras de cavaleiro, equiparação aos nobres em matéria de custas, porte de armas, foro privativo, isenção de serviço militar em terra e mar, isenção de pousada e diversos impostos e tributos como a jugada, a portagem, talhas e fintas, sendo extensíveis à família e serventia do Moedeiro. A profissão de Moedeiro é das mais antigas em Portugal. Os moedeiros eram uma corporação altamente privilegiada, remontando esses privilégios à Idade média, tendo sido iniciados no reinado de D. Dinis (1324) e terminado por decreto de D. João VI em 3 de Agosto de 1824. Formavam uma companhia militar ou milícia com o seu cabido, possuindo a sua organização um caráter eminentemente religioso, tendo como patrono Santa Ana. Os Moedeiros eram nomeados pelo Provedor da Casa da Moeda e eram armados cavaleiros, sendo só nessa altura passada a Carta de Moedeiro, lavrando-se no livro próprio a escritura do novo membro da Corporação (Livro dos Privilégios dos Moedeiros, actualmente no arquivo da Imprensa Nacional - Casa da Moeda). O Regimento da Moeda de 1687 (reinado de D. Manuel I) estabelece que "o número de moedeiros não excederá dos cento e quatro que permite a Ordenação, que se repartirão em doze Tiradores, dezoito Fieiros, quinze Cunhadores e quinze Contadores que fazem sessenta, e os quarenta e quatro que ficam repartirá o Provedor nas ocupações que lhe parecerem mais convenientes". Todos eles tinham de residir em Lisboa. Nomes mencionados no manuscrito: Doutor Estêvão Galego Vidigal : Juíz Desembargador da Casa da Suplicação, Juíz Conservador da casa da Moeda. Formado em Cânones na Univ. De Coimbra em 1714 e presente no Auto de Aclamação d? El-Rei D. José I na qualidade de Desembargador Extravagante (da Relação do Porto ou da Casa da Suplicação[?]). Manuel Rodrigues da Fonseca : Recebe a mercê de Moedeiro por desistência do cargo do seu tio Manuel Ferreira da Fonseca. De acordo com os registos no segundo livro de assentos da matrícula dos moedeiros da Casa da Moeda de Lisboa, no f. 96 r., surge um assento de 25-05-1752 pelo qual se dá juramento a Manuel Rodrigues da Fonseca, mercador e morador na Rua Nova dos Ferros, e se arma o mesmo como moedeiro do número dos 104 no lugar vago por desistência de seu tio Manuel Ferreira da Fonseca. Do mesmo livro, no f. 184 vº, consta um outro assento de 08-05-1789, o qual dá conta da substituição de Manuel Rodrigues da Fonseca, por desistência, pelo seu filho Manuel Tomás da Fonseca, comerciante. Matias Aires Ramos da Silva de Eça [1705-1763]: Provedor da Casa da Moeda da Cidade de Lisboa, Cavaleiro da Ordem de Cristo, Mestre em Artes e bacharel em Filosofia. Filósofo e autor de ?Reflexões sobre a vaidade dos homens, ou discursos morais sobre os efeitos da vaidade? (publicado em 1752, ano desta carta), ?Problema de Arquitectura Civil? e ?Porque os edifícios antigos têm mais duração, e resistem mais ao tremor de terra que os modernos??

Item Description: Círculo do Livro Lda, 1959. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very good +. Dust Jacket Condition: very good. First Edition, First Printing. Lisboa. Cidade Triste e Alegre. Photographs by Victor Palla and Costa Martins. Texts by Rodrigues Miguéris; poems by Alexandre O'Neill, Armindo Rodriques, David Mourao-Fèrrriera, Eugénio de Andrade, Jorge de Sena and José Gomes Fèrriera. Círculo do Livro Lda., 1959. 174 pp. Quarto. Hardbound in dust jacket. 152 black and white photographs throughout. BOOK CONDITION: Nicer than usual / Very Good Plus; nice tight binding, just a bit off-set; trace of foxing; bump to base of spine near front joint (not affeting text block or any pages); in (fragile) original dust jacket with rubbing, soiling areas of light creasing to panle and 2 areas of professional archival restoration at head and heel of spine with area at head of spine extending about 2 inches across the top margin of rear panel (restoration is noticable when holding the verso if the jacket up against the light). Overall a very collectible copy of an extremely scarce hardcover issue with the the even scarcer original dust jacket. "Of the many postwar photobooks on European citites, this is one of the best, and its neglect at the time it was published is regrettable. Made by Victor Palla and Costa Martins, both architects, Lisboa is amongst the most complex of modern photobooks in form and content. It took three years to prepare, the authors taking over 6000 photographs. Uniquely for this period, it was initially issued as a partwork, in seven monthly fascicles. Lisboa is particularly notable for using many of the book-making ideas developed by William Klein, and Dutch Photographers like Ed van der Elsken and Joan van der Keuken, and has a vibrant, cinematic feel.an all-singing, all-dancing Euro photobook, a compendium of every design idea rolled into one.the photographs of Palla and Martins are graphic and exuberant.Both as a photographic bookwork, and as a document of city life, it is considerably more than the sum of its parts"--Parr and Badger.

Item Description: Rio de Janeiro, Na Typographia de Silva Porto & Cª., 1822., 1822. 32 volumes in 2. 4°, late-nineteenth-century maroon quarter sheep over marbled boards (wear to corners, some rubbing to boards, rear cover of first volume a bit warped), smooth spines with gilt fillets separating five compartments, "MICELLANEA POLITICA" gilt in second compartments from head, "1822" over volume numbers 1 and 2 gilt in fourth compartments, text block edges sprinkled blue-green. In very good condition. xii, 152 pp. *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION of this attack, in verse, on the Portuguese constitutional convention. Some Brazilian delegates, led by the Andradas, refused to sign the 1822 Portuguese constitution. This was one of the main factors leading to Brazil's independence.Soyé (1760-1828) was born in Madrid, but taken to Lisbon by his parents while very young. After they died, he became the protégé of João de Saldanha Oliveira e Sousa, later first Conde de Rio-maior, who saw that he was taught painting and engraving as well as the humanities. Soyé joined the Franciscan Order and studied at Coimbra, then obtained a breve de secularisação, and in 1802 was sent to France by D. Rodrigo de Sousa Coutinho to buy books for the newly formed Biblioteca Pública in Lisbon. While there he wrote several poems in praise of Napoleon, which made it impossible for him to return to Portugal after the Bragança restoration. He spent the rest of his life in Rio de Janeiro, where he became a naturalized Brazilian, and was eventually appointed secretary of the Academia das Bellas-Artes.*** Valle Cabral 1213 (cf. 878).

"It is a very important document for the study of events in Bahia before Independence, and was used by Varnhagen for his Historia Geral. It is a very rare work today" (Borba de Moraes I, 128). The author was vice-president of the first Junta Provisoria of Bahia, which took over the government on February 10, 1821 and was replaced by a new Junta on February 2, 1822. Brito here justifies the actions of the first Junta, which favored the Portuguese Cortes and arrested and deported many Brazilians, among them José Egidio Barbuda Godilho, José Eloi Pessoa and Felisberto Gomes Caldeira.Mello Azevedo e Brito (1779-1848), a native of Bahia, went on to hold several high positions in the Brazilian government. His contemporaries recognized him as an accomplished poet, but (because of excessive modesty, according to Blake) he did not publish many of his works, and today few of them are known.* Borba de Moraes (1983) I, 128.

Esta obra está dividida em 4 livros com diversos capítulos cada: Livro I: Descrição do noviciado da Companhia de Jesus e dos seus diversos domicílios em Lisboa. Biografia do Padre M.

Livro II: Biografias dos Noviços da Casa de São Roque e da de Campolide. Entre estes noviços encontra-se o Padre António de Andrade, que descobriu o Tibete. O Padre António Franco descreve este país e o lamaísmo, apontando a falta de comunicação como a razão pela qual se extinguiu a missão no Tibete após a morte do Padre Andrade. Na biografia do Padre Francisco Pimentel relata a sua missão em Tonquim e a vida dos missionários na China. Livro III: Biografias dos Noviços da Casa do Monte Olivete. Entre estes jesuítas está o Padre André Fernandes, eleito Bispo de Japão e outros padres envolvidos nas missões em Angola (Cuanza) e na Índia (Maduré).

According to Barbosa Machado Ferreira baptized more than 20 000 people at the mission in Tonkin. This work commences with a description of Tonkin including information about the people, their history and customs, geography, flora and fauna etc. It's followed by information about the establishment of the Jesuit mission in Cochinchina in 1627; it's difficulties, imprisonment and persecution of the missionaries.

Item Description: 1627. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine. Turkish Privateering against Portugal, the destruction of the Conceicam; diamonds thrown over board. 1627 [later impression]. Lisbon. Offincina de Antonio Alvares. In 8vo (194 mm x 140 mm). 3 ff. + 100 + 1 ff. Mid twentieth-century quarter vellum over decorated boards, vertical author, title and date in manuscript on spine. A very good copy. Second edition. This is the counterfeit editon. There are two issues, with the title pages in different settings of type. The present variant is distinguishable by the author's name appearing correctly on the title page, along with several other variations in wording and spelling. In the other variant, his name appears as "Joam Tavares Mascarenhas". The rest of the leaves appear identical, with the exception of a single "issue point" discovered on p. 1: in the present variant on the third line of the beginning of the main text the date "1621" is given correctly, while in the other variant it is given as "621". There may very well be other minor variants, as yet undiscovered. The work was included in Gomes de Brito’s “Historia Tragico-Maritima em que se escrevem chronologicamente os Naufragios que tiverao as Naos de Portugal, depois que se poz em exercicio a Navegacao da India”, according to Maggs this was not included in every copy and was only included in one copy they had “The six extra accounts were probably issued as separate reprints at different times by Gomes de Brito. As they all bear the imprints of the original editions, and the old dates of publication, they are apt to be mistaken for them”. The title bears the same imprint as the true first edition (1627), however, the physical description doesn’t match (the first edition collating [4] + 48 ff.). Some libraries and public institutions, to date, catalogue it as the first, unaware of the 18th century reprints. Nothing is known of the author, João Carvalho Mascarenhas, except what he mentions in the text of this work. Captured aboard the Conceição in 1621 on the return voyage from India, he spent 6 years in Algiers. He says he was thirty-eight years of age in 1627; that he had travelled on foot along the coast of Brazil from Rio Grande do Norte to Bahia; that he had served on the coast of East Africa, in the Persian Gulf, and on the West Coast of India from Diu to Cape Comorim. He had personally handed dispatches from King Philip to the Shah of Persia, and had drunk of the waters of the rivers Ganges, Tigris, and Eufrates, besides having visited Arabia Felix and Arabia Deserta. Boxer speculates that it is possible he is the same João Carvalho Mascarenhas who was excluded from the captaincy of Massangano during the time that Dom Manuel Pereira Coutinho was Governor of Angola (1630–1634), and if this was so, he was still alive in 1656. It narrates the loss of the ship Conceicam (Portuguese) to Turkish corsairs of Algeria in sight of Lisbon, the naval engagement occurred between both fleets, what happened to the booty – as chapter X, on how the diamonds were thrown off board. It is written by Mascarenhas, who claims being a captive of the Turks. The privateering in the coasts of Spain and Portugal was not an isolated event; it was in fact a continuous and consistent attack on the fleets coming from the Indies –West and East- through the way of the Antilles mostly, bringing riches, precious stones, spices and such to Spain –at the time, the Crowns of Portugal and Spain were still united, under the rule of the King of Spain. The corsairs, well-aware of the situation, attacked the Conceicam, destroyed it and burned it, in the eyes of the Portuguese. As response, the Kings of Spain would soon begin incentivizing privateering activities from his vassals. Provenance: engraved armorial bookplate of Dom Diogo de Bragança (Lafões) (Lisbon, 1930-Lisbon, 2012) was an accomplished equestrian, author of books on dressage, and a dedicated bibliophile whose collection focused on books about horses and horsemanship, plus works on Portuguese hist.

Triumpho lusitano. Aplauzos festivos, sumptuosidades regias nos: LEÃO, Manuel de.

Item Description: Brussels, n.pr., 18 August 1688., 1688. 4°, twentieth-century (second or third quarter) blind-tooled calf (slight wear), spine with raised bands in five compartments, two crimson leather lettering pieces in second and fourth compartments, gilt letter (title), edges sprinkled red from an earlier binding. Engraved title page with arms of the newly married couple, 2 putti holding banners, and two women labeled Galiope [sic] and Talia (see below). A few light stains; tiny wormhole in last 5 quires, touching one letter per page. Overall in very good to fine condition. Old signatures on title page, in upper (scored) and lower ("De Jozé Montrº Nayo") margins. Engraved title page, (4 ll., including errata on final verso), 328 pp. *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION. This verse narrative describes the festivities - including illuminations, triumphal arches, bonfires and bullfights - celebrated in Lisbon upon the marriage of D. Pedro II (1648-1706) to Maria Sophia Isabella (1666-1699), daughter of Philipp Wilhelm of Neuburg, Count Palatine. In the prologue, the author notes that the royal nuptials can be better described by a poem than by a prose narrative: "Bem sey que as excelencias destes Regios Nupciais Elogios, mais erão Sugeito para as eloquencias de hum Poema, do que materia para as limitações de huma Rellação." (f. A3v). The 92 ramos give lengthy poetic descriptions of Maria Sophia's arrival in Lisbon, a day of bullfights (pp. 159-252), a fireworks display (pp. 253-290), and a second day of bullfights (pp. 291-328). Each section of the poem is preceded by a few lines in italic explaining the upcoming "scene," often giving details of the actors, sets, costume, and gold and silver ornaments. For example: "No meyo deste Cerco, se levantava huma Belligera fortaleza com quatro soberbos Baluartes, & oito vistozas Guaritas, Coroandose com hum Eminente Castello; viãose em Contorno sobre as agoas, muitos Marinhos gigantes armados com lanças & Rodellas, donde violentos se ocultavão engenhosos fogos" (p. 260).The charming title page incorporates the combined arms of D. Pedro II and his wife, surmounted by a large crown. Out of the crown stretch a dragon and a large bird who hold wreaths over the women who flank the arms. On the left, "Galiope" (sic, for Calliope, muse of epic poetry) is crowned with a globe and cross that bears the name Maria, and holds a trumpet in her right hand. On the right is Talia (Thalia, muse of comedy), crowned with a globe bearing the name Pedro, and holding a stringed instrument. Above the arms and the muses, two putti hold three banners bearing part of the title. The end of the author's prologue explains the use of these two figures: "Na severidade de Reays, não perdem os Epithalamios condição de festivos; neste que te aprezento, adorno o seriozo com as galas do alegre; valhome do heroyco de CALIOPE, sem desprezar o agradavel de TALIA: com o Clarim daquella, expecifico as grandezas; com o Plectro desta, solemnizo os festejos" (f. A4r).D. Pedro II of Portugal (1648-1706) was the second surviving son of D. João IV. From 1668 he was regent for his elder, mentally deficient brother, D. Afonso VI, whom he exiled to the Azores and later Sintra, where Afonso died in 1683. Afonso's marriage to Maria Francisca of Savoy had meanwhile been annulled because it had never been consummated. Pedro married his former sister-in-law in 1668, and she bore him a daughter, Isabel Luísa Josefa de Portugal, who became heir to the throne. The combination of D. Isabel's poor physical health and the strict rules for succession to the Portuguese throne led to canceled engagements with royal offspring across Europe, earning her the nickname "a Sempre-Noiva," "the ever-engaged." When Maria Francisca died in 1683, D. Pedro aimed to secure the succession by marrying into a famously fecund and well-connected family. He dispatched Manuel da Silva Teles to Heidelberg to request the hand of Maria Sophia, daughter of the Count Palatinate, sister of Eleanor Madeleine, third wife of Leopold I of A.

The voyage lasted 216 days, for 46 of which the ship sailed without masts or a rudder.

At the end is a poem celebrating the return of Judge Mascarenhas to Portugal.

Woodcut royal Portuguese arms on title-page. Woodcut headpiece and initial. In fine condition. Engraved armorial bookplate of Jorge César de Figanière. (2 ll.), 132 pp. *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION. The preface is attributed to Francisco José de Sales, a pseudonym for Father Francisco José da Serra Xavier (ca. 1740?-ca. 1803-5?). In his preface to the second edition (1781) of Fernão Alvares do Oriente's Lusitania transformada, Father Joaquim de Foyos had cast aspersions on the literary reputation of Barbosa Machado, author of the monumental four-volume Bibliotheca Lusitana. Serra Xavier, godson of one of the Barbosas, in the course of rectifying the affront, makes some interesting points and provides numerous useful notices. Macau, China and Japan are discussed on pp. 55-65, as are several authorities, such as Ramusio, de Bry, Jesuit letterbooks, Guerreiro, Andrade's Novo descobrimento do gram Catheyo, Veiga's Relação geral . da Cristandade de Ethiopia, Franco's Imagem da virtude, Kircher, Lucena, Telles, and Martinez de la Puente.Provenance: The author and career government bureaucrat Jorge César de Figanière [e Morão] was born in Rio de Janeiro, 1813, and died in Lisbon, 1887. Son of the naval officer César Henrique de Figanière (a native of Marseilles; both father and son became naturalized Portuguese subjects by the 1821 Portuguese Constitution), Jorge César Figanière took part in the 1832 expedition from England to the Island of Terceira, and later in the siege of Porto. He served for many years in the Portuguese War Ministry and then the Foreign Ministry. When he retired in 1882 he had achieved the rank of Director da Direcção Política and Ministério Plenipotencário de 2ª classe.

Moreover, the entire first part of volume VIII is devoted to two articles by Ribeiro dos Santos on the history of printing in Portugal in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, respectively, and a history of mathematics in Portugal. In the second part of volume VIII he contributes three additional essays, on Portuguese poetry, cartography, and navigation.Provenance: Camilo Castelo Branco (1825-1890), 1.º Visconde de Correia Botelho, was one of the greatest writers in the history of Portuguese literature, one of the most prolific, and one of the two most important nineteenth-century Portuguese authors of fiction, along with Eça de Queiroz.

Azevedo e Samodães, 2072. Apresenta apenas a segunda edição e referindo-se á primeira diz: ?Os exemplares desta edição original são muito raros? Inocêncio V, 306: ?Luis Mendes de Vasconcellos, Commendador da Ordem de Christo, Capitão mór nas armadas do Oriente, onde militou muitos annos, e Governador de Angola pelos de 1617 a 1620. Foi natural de Lisboa, e não de Evora, como pareceu ao P. Francisco da Fonseca na sua Evora gloriosa, pag. 413. Ignoram se precisamente as datas em que nascêra e morrêra, porém sabe se que foi pae de Joanne Mendes de Vasconcellos, que tanto se distinguiu por seus feitos militares nas guerras da acclamação. São interlocutores n"esta obra um Politico, que segundo a interpretação do auctor da Bibliotheca Historica de Portugal (pag. 108 da segunda edição) se crê ser o Conde da Castanheira, ministro d"el rei D. João III e avô materno, dizem, de Luis Mendes: um Soldado, em quem pretendem ver Martim Affonso de Sousa, ex governador da India: e um Philosopho, que é tido, com razão ou sem ella, pelo bispo D. Jeronymo Osorio, a cuja instancia se accrescenta que fôra composto o Sitio de Lisboa. Quanto a esta ultima parte, parece me supposição mais que gratuita, para não dizer abertamente falsa. Osorio morreu, como é sabido, em 1580, e Mendes de Vasconcellos dando á luz a sua obra em 1608, explica se no prologo em termos que, se não me engano, indicam ser a composição d"ella de mui recente data. O nosso illustre economista, o sr. A. de O. Marreca, em um artigo inserto no Archiro Universal, tomo III, sob o titulo João de Barros, Luis Mendes de Vasconcellos e o commercio da India (reproducção, me parece, de outro que publicára no Panorama (1842) pag. 378 e 379) fala de Vasconcellos e da sua obra com subido louvor, referindo se ao modo por que n"esta discursou ácerca das conquistas da India, e contestou a sua utilidade. «O seu bom siso, e alguns capitulos da Politica de Aristoteles, revelaram lhe verdades que só muitos annos depois foram apregoadas e desenvolvidas pela eschola italiana, e pelos economistas inglezes e francezes (Arch.

Woodcut arms of Academia Real das Sciencias on title page. Numerous woodcut tables in text. Occasional very light foxing. In fine condition. Eighteenth-century stamp of second Duke of Lafões, founder of the Academia Real das Sciencias, on title page. viii, 149 pp., (3 pp. with "Catalogo das obras já impressas, e mandadas compôr pela Academia Real das Sciencias de Lisboa ."). *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION of this nautical and astronomical almanac for the year 1793. A number of similar volumes were published by the Academia Real das Sciencias annually from 1788 through 1805, as well as some for later years. All are rare. Some were published anonymously, others by Custodio Gomes de Villas-Boas. At least one was written by him in collaboration with Francisco Antonio Ciera and Francisco de Borja Garção Stockler, and others were published by José Maria Dantas Pereira de Andrade.Villas-Boas (1741-1808), an artillery officer, was a member of the Academia Real das Sciencias and "jubilado" in the Academia Real de Marinha. A native of Guimarães or Barcellos, he made a number of contributions to the Memorias of the Academia Real das Sciencias on navigation and astromomy, and, jointly with Francisco Antonio Ciera, translated Flamsteed's Atlas celeste into Portuguese, with revisions and corrections.Provenance: The second Duke of Lafões, D. João Carlos de Bragança Sousa Ligne Tavares Mascarenhas da Silva (1719-1806), was of the closest possible affinity to the royal house: his father was the legitimized son of D. Pedro II. A nobleman of great talent and public spirit, he led the aristocratic opposition to Pombal, living outside Portugal during most of Pombal's reign. In the quarter-century after Pombal's fall he became one of the dominant public figures. He was appointed Councilor of War in 1780, of State in 1796, and marshal-general of the Portuguese armies. A man of great culture and scientific appreciation and a witty and generous patron, the Duke assisted both Gluck and Mozart during his absence from Portugal.

Item Description: Lisbon, En la officina de Pedro Crasbeeck, 1614., 1614. 4°, mid-eighteenth-century sheep (minor binding defects), spine gilt with raised bands in five compartments, citron leather label (slightly chaffed), gilt letter, text-block edges sprinkled red. Large woodcut vignette on title-page, woodcut initials and tailpieces. Running heads of two leaves almost touched. Minor stain and slight soiling to title-page. Some insignificant marginal worming. Overall in very good condition. Color abstract pictorial bookplate of Joaquim Pessoa. (2), 253 ll. *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION. This epic poem in Spanish on the life of Christ, from conception to being handed over by Judas, was praised by Lope de Vega: "Y con sus rimas triples á Poboas Que honró la lengua castellana tanto"The work also won the applause of Manuel Faria y Sousa. On leaves 175 verso and 176 recto (Canto 20), the author treats the Battle of Lepanto (1571), in which the Holy League decisively defeated the Ottoman Empire. He planned to continue the poem, but it appears that this object was never achieved.D. Manuel das Povóas was a native of Lisbon, born ca. 1564. He was a canon of the Lisbon Cathedral, and died in that city in 1625.The Salvá catalogue says that this work has three preliminary leaves; Palau, who cites no other copy, follows Salvá in calling for three preliminary leaves. However, all copies actually located (the Houghton Library / Palha copy, the Hispanic Society of America/Jerez copy, and the three copies in the Biblioteca Nacional de Portugal) have the same collation as our copy, with two preliminary leaves. Moreover, all other bibliographies and catalogues which give collations (Innocêncio, Pinto de Matos, Garcia Peres, Palha and Sucena), agree that there are but two preliminary leaves. One can speculate that either Salvá mistakenly cited three leaves when really intending to record three printed pages, or that the Salvá copy contained a license leaf from Castile or Aragon not present in any other known copy, and not required for the book to be complete.Provenance: Joaquim [Maria] Pessoa (b. 1948), poet, artist, publicist, student of Portuguese pre-history, and book collector, was the author or co-author of many Portuguese television programs, and for six years (1988-1994) was director of the Sociedade Portuguesa de Autores. He also founded the artistic cooperative Toma Lá Disco, with Ary dos Santos, Fernando Tordo, Carlos Mendes, Paulo de Carvalho and Luiz Villas-Boas, among others.

Item Description: Lisbon, Na Offic. de Joseph da Silva da Natividade, 1745., 1745. Folio (29.4 x 21 cm.), contemporary crimson sheep (minor wear), flat spine richly gilt, outer dentelles richly gilt, marbled endleaves, green silk ribbon place marker, text-block edges sprinkled red. Large woodcut of the Virgin on title page within typographical border. Woodcut intitial. In fine to very fine condition. (2), 42 ll. *** The Santa Casa da Misericordia (Holy House of Mercy) is a uniquely Portuguese Catholic charitable institution, founded in 1498 by Queen Leonor and still existing today. Eventually practically every Portuguese city had its Santa Casa da Misericordia, and the institution spread overseas to Goa, Macau, Bahia, etc. The present statutes are a revealing glimpse into gender and class divisions in mid-eighteenth century Portugal. The Santa Casa's administrators (thirty to sixty Irmãos) tackled duties that would today be the province of lawyers, accountants, hospital administrators, prison chaplains and chaperones. For example: the Irmãos must meet stringent standards, including that neither they (nor their wives, if married) have Jewish or Moorish blood, that they have a good reputation, be at least 25 years of age, not be manual laborers, have enough money to live without a salary and not be tempted by the money they administer, and that they can read and write. Grounds for dismissal include telling secrets learned in the course of their duties or marrying an orphan girl from the Santa Casa without permission. There are special provisions for determining whether to accept bequests (ch. 28).Since it was routine for the Irmãos to receive cash via letters from India and elsewhere, in settlement of wills or as dowries or as payment of ransom (ff. 18v, 21r, etc.), the statutes provide stringent rules for how money is to be reported and handled. There are stipulations about providing ransoms for captives of the Turks or Moors (ch. 32).Several pages are devoted to the procedures for allowing girls and women to live under the supervision of the Casa. Wealthy orphan girls must be between ages 13 and 20 (?por este ser o tempo de mayor perigo?), must provide their own support, can bring only one maid and a companion under age 10. Married women are only allowed to live there with their husband?s consent. Visitors are strictly limited and supervised (ff. 21r-22v). Orphans who are not wealthy are permitted to apply for a dowry from the Misericordia?s funds (f. 30r).The Mordomo da Botica is given extensive guidelines for feeding, clothing, and treating the sick (ff. 24v-25v).One of the Casa da Misericordia?s functions was to make certain that every Christian received a proper burial. The statutes also include instructions for burial, according to class: the poor and the ordinary, the better quality, and the Irmãos themselves, for whom elaborate rituals and regalia are prescribed (ff. 35v-37r). The Misericordia also accompanied criminals condemned to death; again, elaborate rituals are prescribed (ff. 37r-38v).The Compromisso is particularly interesting for the chapters on the "Procissão das Endoenças" (the procession of the sick) and the procession for All Saints' Day (November 1), which set out the order of the participants, their banners and dress. We have seen illustrations of such processions, but few descriptions such as this of who walks where, carrying what, and why.*** Innocêncio II, 95. Not in Welsh or Greenlee Catalogue; cf.

Legende (Beschreibung des Erdbebens). 51:62 cm. Reference: Fauser 7878. Lisbon after the Earthquake anno 1755. From the University of California, Berkeley: "Historical Depictions of the 1755 Lisbon Earthquake Jan T. Kozak, Institue of Rock Mechanics, Czech Academy of Science Charles D. James, National Information Service for Earthquake Engineering Note: With permission, this paper is abridged and edited from drafts of a longer work in progress by V. S. Moreira, C. Nunes and J. Kozak on the Lisbon Earthquake of 1755. The images presented here are taken from the NISEE Kozak Collection of Images of Historical Earthquakes. Although not the strongest or most deadly earthquake in human history, the 1755 Lisbon earthquake's impact, not only on Portugal but on all of Europe, was profound and lasting. Depictions of the earthquake in art and literature can be found in several European countries, and these were produced and reproduced for centuries following the event, which came to be known as "The Great Lisbon Earthquake." The earthquake began at 9:30 on November 1st, 1755, and was centered in the Atlantic Ocean, about 200 km WSW of Cape St. Vincent. The total duration of shaking lasted ten minutes and was comprised of three distinct jolts. Effects from the earthquake were far reaching. The worst damage occurred in the south-west of Portugal. Lisbon, the Portuguese capital, was the largest and the most important of the cities damaged. Severe shaking was felt in North Africa and there was heavy loss of life in Fez and Mequinez. Moderate damage was done in Algiers and in southwest Spain. Shaking was also felt in France, Switzerland, and Northern Italy. A devastating fire following the earthquake destroyed a large part of Lisbon, and a very strong tsunami caused heavy destruction along the coasts of Portugal, southwest Spain, and western Morocco. The oscillation of suspended objects at great distances from the epicenter indicate an enormous area of perceptibility. The observation of seiches as far away as Finland, suggest a magnitude approaching 9.0. Precursory phenomena were reported, including turbid waters in Portugal and Spain, falling water level in wells in Spain, and a decrease in water flow in springs and fountains. Detailed descriptions of the earthquake's effects in Morocco, were, in some cases, based on Portuguese manuscripts written by priests. The cities of Meknes, Fez, and Marrakesh in the interior, and the coastal towns of Asilah, Larache, Rabat, and Agadir (Santa Cruz during the Portuguese occupation) suffered much damage in the quake. Mosques, synagogues, churches, and many other buildings collapsed in Meknes, where numerous casualties were reported. The convent, church, and Hospital de S. Francisco collapsed completely. Lisbon In 1755, Lisbon was one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. The city retained some of its Moorish influence during the Middle Ages and Renaissance. This may be seen in the design of the streets in the quarters surrounding St. George Castle and extending as far as Rossio, the central part of the city. The Rosario, or main square, was the commercial center of Lisbon. The Estatus Palace, situated to the north, was where illustrious visitors to the Kingdom were lodged. On the east side, Saint Dominic Church and the All Saint's Royal Hospital, with its magnificent façade, were erected. On top of the hill, an ancient royal residence was situated. To the west, the church and its Convent were among the most magnificent buildings in Lisbon. Bookseller Inventory # 8365

An account of the terrible voyage Alexandre e Silva made from Rio de Janeiro to Lisbon in the company of some 600 others on a single ship. The passengers included the captain-general of Mozambique, Captain-General of Goiás José de Almeida Vasconcelos, and the famous judge of the Court of Appeals José Mascarenhas Pacheco Coelho e Melo, who was imprisoned in Brazil for twenty years by order of the Marquês de Pombal. The voyage lasted 216 days, for 46 of which the ship sailed without masts or a rudder. The author wrote this account to call attention to the need for more adequate fitting of the ships used for Atlantic crossings. At the end is a poem celebrating the return of Judge Mascarenhas to Portugal. The work appeared again at Lisbon, 1869.Elias Alexandre e Silva, or Elias Alexandre da Silva Correa, was born in Rio de Janeiro in 1753 and began a military career in Santa Catarina. Having survived this hazardous voyage, he served for four years in the Portuguese infantry, then seven years in Angola (1782-1789), and later served in Rio de Janeiro. His Historia de Angola, only published in 1937, is described by Borba as "a remarkable work."*** Borba de Moraes (1983) II, 801: "interesting and rare"; Período colonial 357-8: "rarissima e notavel relação."
