Full Description

8vo. xvi + 182 + (2)pp, 4 photolitho plates. Loosely inserted in recent brown paper wrappers (original front printed wrapper missing, back printed wrapper survives).

A descriptive historical guide to the pilgrimage church of Bom Jesus do Monte, on a hill outside the Portuguese city of Braga. The present church was designed by the architect Carlos Amarante towards the end of the eighteenth century. Issued in an edition of 1500 copies, but the poor quality of the paper on which the book is printed makes it likely that a rather lower number of them survive today.
