Os Lusíadas

This diplomatic edition of The Lusíadas by Luís de Camões, is based on a copy of the princeps edition, printed in Lisbon by António Gonçalves in 1572 and now part of the University of Coimbra Library.
The text was composed in a bespoke humanistic italic, drawing inspiration from the characters used in the aforementioned first edition.
