Lisbon: Monteiro & Co. (1918). One of two books self-published by Pessoa in 1918, the other being Antinous. Both of these publications contain a number of passages that have been interpreted as having a gay sub-text. An important and complex collection of modernist poetry, influenced by Elizabethan imagery. Very good in original sewn wrappers, light browning to covers and a few light traces of foxing, pages uncut.
