Woodcut initials. (4 ), 78 ll. 4°, eighteenth-century mottled sheep (slight wear to extremities), flat spine richly gilt, crimson leather lettering piece, gilt letter, text-block edges sprinkled red.

Overall in good to very good condition. ---- FIRST EDITION of the first comprehensive treatise on proper Portuguese spelling, and only the second published study of any aspect of the Portuguese language, preceded by Fernão de Oliveira's Portuguese grammar of 1536 (see Saraiva & Lopes, @História da literatura portuguesa, 9th ed., p. 25).
