About This Item

Porto, Tipografia de Renascena Portuguesa, for the Author, 1919.. 8¡, later gray quarter cloth over marbled boards, smooth spine with black vertical leather lettering piece extending 10.8 cm. (minor rubbing), with gilt border, pseudonymous author, and short title, original printed wrappers bound in. Light browning. Overall in good to very good condition. Dated blue-green ink presentation inscription on lower half of half title: "Homenagem da // Renascena Portuguesa // 9 Abril 1919". 81 pp., (3 ll.). *** Second edition. First published 1916. Kol de Alvarenga (1892-1967), agricultural engineer and author, a native of Lisbon, occupied important official posts, mostly in the MinistŽrio da Agricultura. Frequent contributor to newspapers and reviews devoted to agriculture, he was also a critic of art and literature. His library was sold at auction by Soares & Mendona, with Manuel Ferreira as expert in 1968 and a preface by Pedro Veiga, the catalogue consisting of three volumes, containing over 8,000 lots. Renascena Portuguesa was a cultural and civic group founded in 1911 by Teixeira de Pascoaes, Jaime Cortes‹o, Raœl Proena, Ant—nio SŽrgio, Leonardo Coimbra, çlvaro Pinto, Augusto Casimiro, and others. The group's literary review, ç Aguia, continued publication until 1932. Pascoaes, Proena, and SŽrgio soon disagreed on the long-term goals of Renascena Portuguesa, and the movement became the mouthpiece of Saudosismo. The educational influence of the Renascena Portuguesa continued to be felt through its Universidades Populares and hundreds of publications under the Renascena Portuguesa imprint on history, law, economy, literature, etc. On Renascena Portuguesa, see M‡rio Garcia in Biblos IV, 694. *** See Guerra Andrade, Dicion‡rio de pseud—nimos e iniciais p. 190; Grande enciclopŽdia, II, 196; Actualiza‹o, I, 255. Porbase locates a single copy of the present edition, at the Faculdade de Letras da Universidade do Porto, as well as a single copy of the 1916 edition, in the Biblioteca Nacional de Portugal. Not located in Copac.
