Botto’s elegant response to the furor caused by the publication of his Canções, a broadside
quoting Álvaro de Campos (a heteronymn of Fernando Pessoa) and expressing his desire to pursue
his art without ridicule. A powerful expression of the artist’s constant struggles against the
puritantical mores of the time.
A single sheet on thin paper, lightly folded, laid into a full morocco clamshell box with the
bookplate of Joaquim Pessoa. Quite rare.
