Description

Small 8vo.  38 pp.  Half calf.  

One of the most colourful and controversial literary figures of the early 19th century Portugal, Macedo was Court preacher to D. João VI and D. Miguel.   This oration at D. João's funeral earned him proportionally greater profits than from any other work he had written previously, since it brought him an annual pension of three hundred mil-reis which he continued to receive throughout his life (see Innocêncio Francisco da Silva & Theophilo Braga, Memórias para a vida íntima de José Agostinho de Macedo, p. 126).  

Innocêncio IV, 194.  Azevedo-Samodães 1907.
