Lisbon: NA Offic. de Samao Thaddeo Ferreira 1795. Lisbon: NA Offic. de Samão Thaddeo Ferreira, 1795.. [6],7-138,[4]pp. Small octavo. Early 20th century 3/4 calf and marbled boards. Small early ink name in upper corner of title (trimmed slightly in binding), a few small spots to title and faint tidemark in extreme lower margin of first few leaves, but a very good, crisp copy. First edition in Portuguese of A SCHOOL FOR SCANDAL, translated from the English text by José Anselmo Correia Henriques, and with a two page printed dedication to Catharina Micaela Sousa Cesar e Alencastre. The translation omits the Prologue and Epilogue. OCLC's collation calls for six unnumbered terminal pages; this copy includes four, one a colophon, the rest blank. Rare: OCLC/Worldcat locates copies at Georgetown, Harvard, Trinity Dublin and Cambridge. The translation is not among the several 18th century non- English editions reported by NCBEL. OCLC 57297563.
