About this Item

8°, stapled. Small woodcut vignette on title-page. Slight soiling to title-page and p. 16. Uncut and unopened. In fine condition. 16 pp. *** First Edition in Portuguese? Interesting early defense of communism - the Communist Manifesto had appeared in the same year. Vitry attempts to answer four objections to communism: that it gives the government too much power, that it allows the individual too little freedom, that removing competition removes the stimulus to produce, and that an efficient system of distribution of goods would be impossible.Innocêncio lists this work under João Maria Nogueira, transcribing the title-page, including the name of Guerin [sic] de Vitry, but without stating that this is a translation; several translations by Nogueira are listed there as such. The Grande enciclopédia copies the same error in transcription, and lists the work the same way. João Maria Nogueira (Beja, 1816-1856), journalist, author, translator, politician and public functionary, joined the liberal cause in 1833 at age seventeen, serving under the Duque da Terceira. In 1851 he was given a post in the newly created Ministry of Public Works. Nogueira was a member of the Real Academia das Sciencias de Lisboa. He was elected to the lower house of the Côrtes in 1856, but died before taking his seat.*** Innocêncio III, 412-3. Gonçalves Rodrigues, A tradução em Portugal 6739.
