Os Lusiadas (the Lusiads) [and] Camoens: His Life and His Lusiads [and] Camoens The Lyricks
London: Bernard Quaritch, 1884. 1st ed. of these three two volume sets of Camoes-related Burton translations which were uniformly bound and also numbered I-VI on the backstrips. The "Os Lusiadas" volumes are the 2nd issue of the 1st ed., which is actually uniform in size and binding with the 1st eds. of the other 2 sets. Hardcover. Near Fine. 6 volumes, xix, 250, [251]-471, vii, 366, [369-738], 265, [269-540]p. Original green cloth with lightly worn gilt corners on front cover and gilt lettering on front covers and backstrips. 18cm. Minor soiling and wear. Leaves lightly browned. Each volume has the bookplate of Burke Casari, a Burton collector and enthusiast. Camoes was a great 16th century Portuguese poet. Burton projected at least four more Camoes-related volumes but they were apparently never published. [See Penzer's "Annotated Bibliography" at pages 103-106]. Isabel Burton was identified as editor of these rather scarce volumes.
