This book has a couple of interesting associations. The front pastedown has a dime size BOOKBINDER'S LABEL (Encadernador A. DAVID Lisboa) and an ARMORIAL BOOKPLATE of AYRES D'ORNELLAS.
The covers are worn, with scuffing and scraping to the spine leather and paper covered boards, the front spine fold is tender and starting to split, the covers are worn through at the corners and most of the edges, the spine ends are frayed from pulling and shelf wear; nonetheless the covers remain attractive in a Harry Potter Hogwarts Library way. Internally, the front and rear inner hinges are split but holding, the pages are toned, especially at the margins, there is some light foxing here and there, otherwise the inner pages remain tight, bright, clean, clear and unmarked.
A nice copy of this book containing two Portuguese works from 1894 on Jesuits in Asia.
