About this Item: Coimbra, Na Imprensa da Universidade, 1821., 1821. 8°, old black plain rear wrapper (spine worn; remnants of front wrapper). Small woodcut royal Portuguese arms on title page. Repairs to title page at inner blank margin; a bit ugly, but not affecting text. Uncut. Overall in good condition; aside from the repairs to the title page, in very good to fine condition. Remains of paper label near head of spine. lviii pp., (1 l.), 223 pp., folding engraved plate. *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION. The Inventos, written in the form of a dialogue between a fictitious stranger and Moura Portugal, contains many references to places in Portugal, Africa, Asia and South America. The chapter entitled "Dialogo sobre varias cousas da America" (pp. 177-204) begins with a discussion of Portuguese and Spanish claims to Colonia do Sacramento, and the line of demarcation between Spanish and Portuguese colonies in South America (pp. 177-88). The speakers go on to discuss the means of communication between Matto Grosso, Grão Pará and Rio de Janeiro, mentioning travel by various rivers and the journey of Antonio Rolim (pp. 188-204).The final chapter is on how to determine whether there is gold in land alongside a river, before digging mine shafts (pp. 207-17). Subjects of other chapters include waterwheels, improving the speed of boats on the Tejo, and how to increase the firing power of artillery without increasing the amount of gunpowder used.Moura Portugal (b. 1702 in Moimenta da Beira, near Gouveia) traveled abroad for 8 years learning about foreign improvements in science and the arts. In 1760, having returned to Portugal, he was accused of treason to the Portuguese crown, and thrown into the Forte da Junqueira. During the 16 years before his death there in 1776, he filled 28 manuscript notebooks with his discoveries and projects. This volume contains all that could be salvaged of them; it was published after through the efforts of Antonio Ribeiro Saraiva. Many of these ideas, such as the one for transporting lumber from coastal areas to Lisbon and various inland cities, were of great commercial use.*** Innocêncio I, 351; VIII, 375 (noting that he had finally acquired a copy of this uncommon work). Carpenter, Luso-Brazilian Economic Literature Before 1850 p. 11. Goldsmiths'-Kress 23156.18. Not in Borba de Moraes, Bosch, or Rodrigues. Not in JCB, Portuguese and Brazilian Books.

About this Item: Lisbon, Na Officina da Casa Litteraria do Arco do Cego, 1800., 1800. 4°, contemporary quarter sheep over plain blue-grey paper boards (paper peeling; spine defective at head and foot; other binding wear), flat spine with leather lettering piece, gilt letter, text-block edges sprinkled red. A few small wormholes in outer margin, not affecting text or images. In good to very good condition. (8 ll.), 114 pp., (1 blank l.), 18 engraved plates [some folding; numbered 1-12, 13a, 13b, 14-17]. *** First edition in Portuguese of Fulton's A Treatise on the Improvement of Canal Navigation, Exhibiting the Numerous Advantages to be Desired from Small Canals, and Boats of Two to Five Feet Wide ., published London, 1796. The Treatise was the first major published work of the celebrated American inventor, engineer, and painter Robert Fulton. Born near Lancaster, Pennsylvania, in 1765, Fulton left for England in 1786, not returning to the United States until 1806. Under the patronage the Duke of Bridgewater, Fulton spent much of his time studying boat propulsion and canal improvements. The latter are documented in the Treatise, where Fulton advocates the development in England of an extensive system of inland waterways, discusses their construction and operating costs, and describes various inventions designed to facilitate canal operation.Fulton's work found favor throughout Europe. It was soon translated into Portuguese with the express wish that its ideas could be exploited both in Portugal and in Brazil. The Tratado faithfully reproduces the elegant plates of the London edition, which were engraved after Fulton's own designs. They depict not only types of canal machinery, but also the proper design of canal boats and of large wooden and cast-iron bridges. The engraver was Inácio José de Freitas, who executed a number of other works at the Arco do Cego.The translator and editor, Antonio Carlos Ribeiro de Andrade Machado da Silva (1773-1845), was born in São Paulo, studied at the Universidade de Coimbra, and returned to Brazil, where he held various government posts. A staunch supporter of Brazilian independence, he was a ringleader of the failed 1817 Pernambuco revolt. The Tratado is one of several works he translated for the Arco do Cego press.This text was published at the Arco do Cego press (officially the Tipografia Chalcografica, Tipoplastica e Literaria, located in Lisbon at the Arco do Cego), established in 1800 at the insistence of D. Rodrigo de Sousa Coutinho, Minister of State, who realized the need to spread information on new techniques in the arts, industry and agriculture in Portugal and Brazil. The director of the press was José Mariano da Conceição Veloso (1742?-1811), a native of Minas Geraes and a noted botanist. He was assisted by many young Brazilians living in Lisbon. In 1801 the Arco do Cego press was incorporated into the Regia Oficina Typografica, later known as the Impressão Regia and then the Imprensa Nacional.*** Borba de Moraes (1983) II, 798; Período colonial p. 28.
