A Brasileira de Prazins
A numbered edition of that considered the last great novel by Camilo Castelo Branco. The publication, with paperback covers, of this title by Lello & Irmão - Editores becomes even more remarkable when considering that A Brasileira de Prazins managed only one edition during the author's lifetime following its 1882 publication by Ernesto Chardron. With a foreword by Benjamim Salgado and illustrations by Rui Palma Carlos, this is an unmissable edition in the Camillo universe. One of the most prolific writers of the Portuguese 19th century, an exponent of realism, Camilo Castelo Branco begins this narrative with a desperate letter written by the young Marta de Prazins to José Dias, the man she loves and who is dying. The novel contains two stories that paint a true portrait of the social, political, and economic conditions prevailing in the Minho of the time.
