Description
Lisbon, Na Officina de Miguel Manescal, Impressor do Santo Officio, 1707.. First Edition in Portuguese. 8°, early to mid-twentieth-century antique sheep (slight wear), spine with raised bands in five compartments, gilt lettering in second compartment from head, gilt date at foot, elaborate blind-tooling on spine and covers. Clean, crisp; in very good to fine condition. Eighteenth-century ownership signature ("João de Quintal Lobo") in upper margin of p. 1. Finely engraved title page, (8 ll.), 198 pp. *** First and Only Edition in Portuguese. Gualdo Priorato (Vicenza, 1606-1678), was a soldier of fortune in Flanders, France, Mantua and the Empire. He fought under Prince Maurice of Nassau both in Flanders and against the Portuguese in Brazil, and also served under Wallenstein. This translation is probably from either his Il maneggio dell'armi moderno, Bologna, 1643, or Arte della guerra, o sia maneggio moderno dell' armi, Rome, 1681. The translator does not give his name, but identifies himself in the introduction as a soldier who had served in Flanders, and states that he has added some annotations based on his experience there and elsewhere. *** Palau Claveras 1707: without collation.
