Lendas da Índia

Gaspar Correia

ISBN: 8000000224873


Lendas da Índia by the great Portuguese historian Gaspar Correia is here dignified by an edition integrated into the Tesouros da Literatura e da História collection. A work in four volumes, elegantly composed on bible paper, with gold-engraved editorial binding. The Lendas da Índia remains a contemporary source for the early phase of the Portuguese presence in India and the Orient, providing descriptions and illustrations of the local flora and architecture of the time. This landmark reference work on the history of the Portuguese Discoveries was written over a period of thirty-five years, during the time the writer lived in India, but would only become publicly known in the 19th century.
