A collection of the author’s political works.   Padre Inácio José de Macedo sailed for Brazil aged eight, according to Innocêncio, and lived in Bahia for over 40 years, where he became a magistrate and edited the first periodical printed in Bahia, A Idade d’Ouro do Brazil (1811 - 1823).   He was the author most frequently printed by the Tipografia de Manuel Antônio da Silva Serva, who founded the first successful printing press in Bahia (see Borba de Moraes, Livros e bibliotecas no Brasil colonial, p. 139).   When independence was declared in Brazil Macedo returned to Portugal, where he edited the Velho Liberal do Douro from 1826 to 1828, when his liberal ideas led to his imprisonment.   After the restoration of a constitutional government he recommenced the Velho Liberal until his death in 1834.   Although the pagination of 2nd work omits pp. 9-12 the work appears to be complete.
