M. DCC. XCVIIII. 
This volume of Velloso's collected works is taken from a book by a coffee planter of Saint Domingue, Pierre-Joseph Laborie, a creole native of Haiti, who sought to diversify the sugar-dependent economy of the island by introducing coffee cultivation. A noted botantist, Velloso was appointed director of the press, Arco do Cego, incorporated in 1798 into the royal printing office. Meant to modernize the Portuguese empire, the Arco do Cego published at least 80 works in three years on various topics, including agriculture, navigation, and medicine.
Acquired in 1972.
