'The Lusiad, Or, the Discovery of India. an Epic Poem, Translated From the Original Portuguese of Luis De Camöens by William Julius Mickle'. Second edition.

[4], ccxxxvi, 496 p., [2]; engraved frontispiece, folding engraved map of the Eastern hemisphere showing Vasco da Gama's route to India; rebound in half-leather, new endpapers. Including the dedication to the Duke of Buccleuch.

Condition: Spine separated from textblock. Binding shaken but tight, loose hinges; minor peeling and edge wear. Internally some age-related page toning and foxing, but generally quite clean. Map in very good condition. Book in good general condition.

English translation of the 16th century epic poem 'Os Lusíadas' by Luís Vaz de Camões (c. 1524/5 – 1580), a work that celebrates in Homeric style the discovery of a sea route to India by the Portuguese explorer Vasco da Gama (1469–1524). It is widely regarded as the most important work of Portuguese literature.

This 1778 English edition offered here is most notably for containing a critical attack on Adam Smith’s laissez-faire doctrines to the East India Trade in the 'Wealth of Nations' and the inclusion of an impressive folding map.
