Item #7389 Castelo de Sombras. Judith TEIXEIRA.

Castelo de Sombras

Lisbon (1923). 4to.

Item #7389

Judith Teixeira (1880-1959) is considered by many to be the only Portuguese modernist poet. Castelo de Sombras was published in the same year as her controversial volume, Decadencia. Her books, along with those of António Botto and Raul Leal were seized by the Civil Government of Lisbon as a result of a campaign led by the conservative Liga de Acção dos Estudantes de Lisboa against "decadent artists, poets of Sodom, the publishers, authors and sellers of immoral books."
Good in original wrappers, wear to covers and spine, occasional light spotting. Quite uncommon.

Price: $525.00
