[AGUIAR, VASCO JOSÉ DE].
Viagem ao interior da Nova Hollanda, obra moral, critica, e recreativa, dedicada a Sua Magestade Fidelissima a Rainha . Por V.J.A.
Lisboa: Typ. de Vicente Jorge de Castro & Irm‹o; vend-se nas Lojas de Livros de Orcel, Bordalo, e Viuva Henriques, 1841. 8vo. 3 vols bound in 1. Vol. 1: [4], vi, 219p. Vol. 2: 247, [1]p. Vol. 3: 201p. Imprint varies. Quarter green leather, green cloth boards; gold-tooled spine; lilac endpapers; edges and sides scuffed, top of spine chipped; internally a very good copy. ***** Vasco José de Aguiar was an undistinguished Portuguese civil servant who published two pieces of fiction in the 1840s, a Voyage to the Interior of New Holland (Viagem ao Interior da Nova Hollanda) and a collection of short narratives with the title Dreamt Truths (Verdades Sonhadas). While the literary quality of Aguiar's writings is far from high, they are worth reading for their utopian character. Indeed, Aguiar's fiction appears to bear the influence of utopian works such as More's Utopia, Swift's Gulliver's Travels and Voltaire's Micromégas. The Viagem ao interior da Nova Hollanda narrates a trip to Australia and the discovery of the Valley of Reason, a magnificent kingdom where morality and order prevail. "A fictitious work written as a personal account of a journey the author took as servant accompanying his master on a voyage to Australia. He chose Australia as the scene for his moralizing, hoping that the new nation will be forever free from the vices of the Old World" - Ferguson. Ferguson 3133 (quoting copies at Mitchell Library and National Library, Canberra); Innocêncio VII, 405.

JUAN DE LOS ANGELES.
Diálogos de la conquista del espiritual y secreto Reyno de Dios, que segun el santo Evangelio està dentro de nosotros mismos. En ellos se trata de la vida interior y divina ...
Madrid: por la biuda de P. Madrigal, 1595. 4to. [16], 416, [24]p. Small woodcut on title page. Woodcut arms of Albert, Archduke of Austria and Cardinal Archishop of Toledo on ¤3 verso. Woodcut initials. Title page skilfully repaired. Slight shaving of marginalia in two pages of Prologo al lector. Small library stamp on title. Old vellum covers, rebacked to match, new end papers. ***** One of Spain's great 16th-century mystical writers, the Franciscan Juan de los Angeles has been called by Menendez y Pelayo 'uno de los mas suaves y regalados prosistas castellanos'. His style is perhaps inferior only to that of Luis de León in De los nombres de Cristo. His Triumphos del amor de Dios (Medina del Campo, 1590) owed much to Plato's views on love, as well as to St. Bonaventure and Sabunde - it was later revised and abridged as Lucha espiritual y amorosa entre Dios y el alma (1600). The Diálogos de la conquista del espiritual y secreto reyno de Dios, of which this is the first edition, was much influenced by the Northern European mystics, especially by Ruysbroeck and Tauler. It takes the form of a series of dialogues between a religious named Deseoso and his spiritual adviser. A second edition was printed at Barcelona in 1597, and a third edition which came out at Madrid in 1608 was accompanied by a sequel, Manual de vida perfecta. - Ward p.308. Palau 12447. Cat. Col. (Siglo XVI) J835. Pérez Pastor 462. No edition in Adams or Penney. NUC reports 1 copy only - at Harvard. BLC has modern editions only.
