Rio de Janeiro: F.A. de Almeida, 1848. First edition. Hardcover. Octavo. 206pp. Red leather over marbled paper boards. Tooling and gilt lettering over a brown label on the spine. The work is a geopolitical study of Angola by Joaquim Antonio de Carvalho e Menezes, at the time that at it was a colony of Portugal. The author was a Portuguese subject, and native of Luanda, Angola of "mixed heritage", who had raised concerns in Chamber of Deputies of Portugal, about the plight of the people of Angola under the colonial rule. His intention with the publication seems to be along the those lines, as he states in the preface, "I sincerely hope for the good of the nation to which I belong, I send my opinions, or my ideas as I have conceived them and present the facts as they are, some of them observed by me, some collected from historical fragments, and others conveyed by the public voice...". Errata page at the end. Text in Portuguese. Binding with rubbing to extremities, and some chipping, cracking and closed tears along the hinge and to the head & tail of the spine. Interior with the holes and tears to the title page repaired, although there are some small holes in the text portion of p.1-3 of the introduction. Title page with period notes in ink. Sporadic light water stains and minor smudging to a few pages throughout. Starting at pages 204-206. Binding in good-, interior in good condition overall. g- to g. Item #43016
