The Oliveira Prize-Essay on Portugal
Author: Joseph James Forrester
First Published: 1853
Edition: 1854
Code/Source: ASIN: B00086O46M
Pages: 290
Comments: This book represents an important time in the history and development of the port trade and was written by one of its most controvertial and charismatic characters. The copy I have is in reasonable condition for its age and includes a fold-out of Forrester's Map of the Wine District of the Alto-Douro. A very rare gem and a very heavy read!

A PDF of this book can be downloaded from Google Books here.
