Description

Small 8vo.  XXI, 139 (1) pp.  Wrappers.  

Innocêncio praised this translation by for its fidelity and the grace and beauty of its language, which he considered admirably suited to the Latin original.   Duarte de Resende was one of the poets included in the Cancioneiro Geral by Garcia de Resende.   He served in India in 1522 and is believed to have been in the Malaccas when Magellan arrived there with his fleet.   He described this voyage in Tratado da Navegação que Fernão de Magalhães e seus companheiros fizeram as ilhas das Malucas, referred to by João de Barros in his Decadas da Asia but which apparently remains unpublished.

Innocêncio II, 214.  Palha 372.
