Abstract:
This is the "E" edition, named from the seventh line of the first stanza which begins with the word "Entre". It may have been printed at a later date (1580-1584 is suggested in some bibliographies) as a pirated edition. On this title page, the pelican faces toward the reader's right; the 7th and 8th lines of the first stanza end with "edificaram" and "sublimaram" respectively. The edition considered to be the true first (1572) edition, called the "Ee" edition, has the seventh line of the first stanza beginning "E entre"; on that title page the pelican faces the reader's left; the 7th and 8th lines of the first stanza end with "edificarão" and "sublimarão" respectively.
