Excerpts from reports of foreigners visiting Portugal in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.
The authors, in their wanderings, wrote about: lice, gallantry, rabbits, snuff, spectacles, snacks and megalomania, among others.
Illustrated with black and white colourized photographs.
"... The art of printing is not in a more advanced state of improvement. Their types are oldfashioned and coarsely cast; their composition is neither neat nor correct; their editions are slovenly and faulty; their paper is of a small size and a bad colour. Scarcely ten good editions printed at Lisbon can be mentioned, and these have been printed with types imported from Paris. Their books are even worse bound than printed."
