Luis de Camões was a 16th-century Portuguese poet best known for his work ‘Os Lusiadas’. This poem focuses on Portuguese voyages and discoveries of the 15th– and 16th-centuries. Later editions, particularly English editions, were known to feature critical attacks on Adam Smith’s Wealth of Nations and many of the economical patterns of Renaissance trade.

 

This 1791 English edition was published in Ireland and translated by William Julius Mickle. And while 18th-century editions of this poem are rare, this example is notably scarce because of the inclusion of an impressive folding map!
