About This Item

Lisbon: Francisco Luiz Ameno, , 1759. Contemporary calf (corners bumped, rebacked, original label preserved).. Small Hebrew inscription on title p., new endpapers, some ink markings & slight discolouration, piece lacking from lower margins of pp. 61/62 & 73/74 due to paper faults.. The book appeals to a love of the sensational and curiosities. The author writes of monsters and natural phenomena, he refers to Father Bartholomeu Lourenço de Gusmãos attempt to become airborne, to other early aeronautical endeavours, and to electrical experiments carried out by Abbé Nollet. He complains in the preface of the cultural damage inflicted by the great earthquake of 1755 that had partially ruined Lisbon and destroyed many of the important fonts of learning, including libraries. Innocêncio VI, 436 "livro de muita curiosidade e recreação." Not in Azevedo Samodães or Palha.
