Introduction to the Catalogue of 19th-century Hispano-Lusophone Africana

This listing covers the British Library's holdings of material printed from 1801 to 1900 inclusive from and about Portuguese- and Spanish-speaking territories in Sub-Saharan Africa. Nineteenth-century editions of earlier works are included, principally accounts of discovery and exploration. 

The first, or general, section of the checklist lists material which covers Hispano-Lusophone Africa as a whole. Subsequent entries are grouped by country, sub-divided by subject, and then arranged alphabetically. Little information has been added to the records in Explore the British Library. However, headings for Portuguese personal names which in the General catalogue filed under the penultimate surname have been revised to file under the last name of the surname.

Monographs published in the Boletim da Sociedade de Geographia de Lisboa from its 1a serie (1877-78) to its 18a serie (1900) are occasionally catalogued separately: for items not separately catalogued, there is a cumulative index to the volumes up to 1892 in 11a serie, no. 12 (1982). See also the Alphabetical index of headings listed in the catalogue.
