Rare first and only edition, in Portuguese, of a monograph on Portugal's political and economical decline, in two volumes, by Antonio Maximino Dulac (1768-1850). The author examines the historical, political, agricultural and economic background of Portugal, comparing it to other countries in Europe and elsewhere, and trying to find "remedies" to "cure" the Portuguese state. The first volume includes an extensive disscussion of France, and the second of ancient Egypt and the Arabs in the Iberian Peninsula. He gives special attention to the Umayyad dynasty, especially the reigns of Abdullah (855-912) and Abd-ar-Rahman III (889-961).
Some marginal stains and some pages somewhat thumbed. Binding worn along the extremities, especially at the foot of the spine. Overall in good condition. Porbase (5 copies); WorldCat (4 copies).
