Full Description

8vo. 352 + (2)pp, 16 ills on plates. Early twentieth-century cloth, original printed wrappers bound in. Ink presentation inscription, dated 3 November 1918, from Vasconcellos to his friend José Queiroz (presumably the historian of Portuguese ceramics), on preliminary leaf. A few pencil notes by Queiroz in margins. Subsequently King Manoel II of Portugal’s copy, with his bookplate, and more recently John Bury’s copy.

This 1918 version of Vasconcellos’s edition of Hollanda’s Dialogues omits the extensive scholarly commentary that accompanied the Vienna edition of 1899, but has the merit that it includes additional notes and an additional bibliography at the end which take account of writings about Hollanda since 1899.
