A celebration of Sir Joseph Banks

Scarce printing of a paper presented in Portuguese to the Lisbon Royal Academy of Science in 1843 on the life of Sir Joseph Banks. Manoel Maria José da Costa was an influential man of letters and scientist, for many years secretary of the Academy. Although not as well-known as Banks, his writings show a similar range and deal with a broad variety of scientific subjects, so we can infer that he felt an affinity with the subject of his presentation, the illustrious Banks.

This rare pamphlet was apparently not known to the Banks scholar Harold B. Carter for his Sir Joseph Banks... A guide to biographical and bibliographical sources.

Not in Beddie; not in Carter, 'Sir Joseph Banks'.
