Light top-edge stain to last few pages.. Unopened. Rubbed. spine chipped, some foxing, Good. An economic-geographical study of the Niassa territory of 19th-Century colonial Mozambique (then a Nyassa Company concession) detailing flora, fauna, mineral wealth & evidently issued to attract investment & colonial settlers. This bears a printed [published] cover wrapper indicating publisher as Livraria Triunfo, dated 1931. The title-page reads: Typ. da Companhia Nacional Editora, dated 1891.This does not appear to be a reprint: Livraria Triunfo [which lists other 19th-century works relating to Portuguese colonies on rear cover] apparently acquired the original unbound sheets of this book and added their own paper-cover wrappers in 1931, hence the discrepancy in dates of publication.
