Luis de Camões; poemeto, com uma carta de Eça de Queiroz

Hayward, CA: J. de Menezes, 1897. 62p., 4.5x6.5 inches, text in Portuguese, bibliographia, fourth (revised) edition, previous owner's stamp with a signed gift inscription to him from the editor dated Oakland, 1935, lightly soiled and edgeworn wraps. OCLC lists one holding (Bancroft Library).

The previous owner and inscribee was Sylvanus Griswold Morley who was somehow involved with the book (as noted in OCLC), a harmless academic we must suppose; but his son (also Sylvanus) was an American archaeologist, epigrapher, and Mayanist scholar who made significant contributions toward the study of the pre-Columbian Maya civilization in the early twentieth century. He was also a spy in Mexico during WWI. What makes a son go Prodigal? fun. Pretty sure, to have fun.
