Part one, first section of the first published work of Spanish translator, writer and early feminist, Josefa Amar y Borbón (1749-1833). The Historical-apologetic Essay of Spanish Literature Against the Concerned Opinions of Some Italian Modern Writers was translated by Amar y Borbón from Italian to Spanish, and was heavily annotated by her. It was released in seven parts over the course of four years (1782-1786). This volume is the first section of part one.

A very good copy with a faint watermark to the front board; mid-19th century doodles, signatures and ink spots on the eps. Part of an exceptionally scarce work by Amar y Borbón in a lovely late 18th century Spanish binding.
