No. 4 deals with the cultivation of land for agriculture, no. 8 with raising and processing flax. Alexandre Ant—nio Vandelli (Lisbon, 1784-Rio de Janeiro, 1859), was the son of the distinguished Italian-born botanist Domingos Vandelli. He served as guarda-m—r of the Academia Real das Scincias de Lisboa, Intendente Geral das Minas e Metaes, and was a member of the commission for the reform of weights and measures. He left Portugal for political reasons in 1834, entering the service of the Brazilian Empire. *** Fonseca, Pseud—nimos p. 183: attributing the work to Alexandre Antonio Vandelli. On the author, see Innocncio I, 29; and VIII, 30 (without mention of this work). Conefrey, Jornais, sŽries e peri—dicos portugueses 1826-1834 pp. 52, 55: noting that the Biblioteca Municipal do Porto has issues 1-14 (but a note in their catalogue says nos. 1-16 were issued), and the Biblioteca Nacional only issues 1-4. Silva Pereira, O Jornalismo portuguez p. 26, giving the dates 1831-1832 but not specifying the number of issues. Not in Universidade de Coimbra, Publica›es peri—dicas portuguesas. Porbase locates three copies at the Biblioteca Nacional de Portugal, calling for 16 issues (1831-1832), but without stating whether all copies are complete runs. Copac repeats the copy at the British Library.
