About This Item

Lisbon, 1813. 32mo. (157)pp., + folding map. An elegant embroidered hand-calendar, giving Feast Days, a Court Calendar, phases of the moon, eclipses, lists of kings, bishops, cardinals, and more. Includes the lineage of the Royal Family. Frontispiece is an engraved, hand-colored folding map of Portugal. In a white satin embroidered binding with gold threads, sequins, and silver wire. Both front and back covers are bordered with open floral interlace. In the center of the front is the coat of arms of the Portuguese royal family, surmounted by a crown. On the back is a diminutive scene showing the Tower of Belém. The Tower, still standing today, played an important role in the Age of Discovery and is a shining example of Manueline architecture in Lisbon. Behind the tower, a flock of birds flies above a three-masted ship. The spine is decorated with a sequined interlace. Marbled endpapers and yellow ribbon bookmark attached. Housed in a gilt-decorated leather pull-off case, with the royal coat of arms of the United Kingdom and another crest showing two crossed trumpets, wreathed and surmounted with a lyre. Lower edge of upper part of the case is slightly worn and turned up on itself, one loose thread on spine, and slight fraying to edges. A.e.g. An about fine copy of this rare Portuguese almanac.
