Second edition of the Spanish translation, published just two years after the original English edition (the first Spanish edition was published in the same year as the second). The work tells the voyage around the world of the English navigator John Byron (1723-1786) who, between 1764 and 1766, commanded the frigate Dolphin, accompanied by the frigate Tamer, through the Pacific Ocean, in search of new continents, having returned to England less than two years after his departure. The translator included at the end a “Resumen histórico del primer viaje hecho al rededor del mundo, emprendido por Hernando de Magallanes, e llevado felizmente á termino por el famoso capitan español Juan Sebastian del Cano”, with its own title page, next to page 176. In his work, Byron highlights the encounter with the giants of Patagonia, in Tierra del Fuego (represented in the engraving next to the title page), previously mentioned by the Portuguese navigator, but never scientifically confirmed. The fold-out map represents the Strait of Magellan in detail. Very clean contemporary binding copy, complete with flexible parchment. Palau, 38230. Borba de Moraes, p. 138.

BURNETT, William Hickling.- Burnett's views of Cintra.- London: published by Josh. Dickinson, s.d.- [14] litografias coloridas; 49 cm.- E.
The author (ca. 1800-ca. 1870), an English painter and draftsman, traveled through Portugal, Spain, Italy, Egypt, Tangier and Scotland, where he collected compositions that were later set in stone, in this case by Charles Joseph Hullmandel, with an active lithographic studio in London from 1819 to 1850. The title and imprint were removed from the brochure cover (certainly from one of the fascicles), which is still intact, since the edition does not have a title page (it was never printed). The volume consists of: a cover (the top one), a sheet with a dedication to William IV and 14 hand-coloured lithographs, printed by the chine-collée process, with the following inscription: Drawn from nature & in stone by Wm. H. Burnett — Printed by C. Hallmandel. The order of prints may vary in each copy. This one presents the following: 1 - Cintra; 2 - Cintra from the East; 3 - The Market Place; 4 - Entrance to Cintra; 5 - The Convent of the Penha Longa; 6 - The Convent of N.ª S.ª da Penna; 7 - General View of Cintra; 8 - Cintra from the West; 9 - The Cork Convent; 10 - A part of the Palace; 11 - An old Chapel of the Moorish Castle; 12 - The Church of Cintra; 13 - A Distant View of the Penna Convent; 14 - Entrance to the Penna. Prints, very clean, assembled in guards, keeping great freshness. Recent binding, in full morocco, signed Victor Santos, with a triple fillet in gold ornamental border on the covers, engraving on the front cover and smooth spine, in keeping with the taste of the time; gold roll on the squares and top edge gilt; protective case. Duarte de Sousa, II, 117.

Original edition of a work based on the manuscript of «Historia da Guerra de Pernambuco e feitos memoraveis do Mestre de Campo João Fernandes Vieira», by Diogo Lopes Santiago, which was only published in 1875-1880.

The volume retains, at the beginning, the copperplate print title, with the portrait of the biographer, a little cropped and handled. Copy slightly cropped, with oval stamp (initials J.F.J.B.) on the type title page; occasional minor worm holes and light stains, especially on the margins. Restorations on the last four sheets of the Index. Binding from the 20th century, with leather spine. Inocêncio, VII, p. 48. Samodães, 1632. Borba de Moraes, p. 427 (rare). Auvermann, 1062.

A working copy of the original edition of a work of capital importance to the history of Brazil, namely from 1630 to 1638. The author (ca. 1625-1692) was admiral of the Portuguese Fleet in Brazil and governor of Pernambuco (1661-1664) ), which allowed him to describe the events at first hand, having also had access to extensive documentation, both Portuguese and Dutch. The edition includes an engraved allegorical frontispiece, which is missing from the present copy. It also includes the «Viage [sic] da Armada da Companhia do Commercio, e Frotas do Estado do Brasil», with its own title page, dating from 1655 ([8], 64 p.). The last group of 39 numbered pages corresponds to the index. The copy also lacks the second preliminary sheet (beginning of the dedication) and has some serious defects, the main ones being the following: mirrored title page with browning and serious restoration, extending to the two following sheets; last two leaves with less profound restoration, especially on the outer margin. The rest of the sheets are cropped, but clean and without noticeable defects. Binding from the 19th century(?), full sheepskin. Inocêncio, III, p. 361. Borba de Moraes, p. 324/326 (rare). Samodães, 484. Auvermann, 1051. Arouca, F 187.
