BRANDAM, FERNANDO ALVAREZ:

Marano and physician at Lisbon in the seventeenth century; contemporary of Manuel Fernandez de Villa-Real, who characterizes him as "insigne y illustre ingenio." At the instance of his friend Isaac Fernando Cardoso, he wrote his "Tratado em Defensa del Color Azul," still extant in manuscript, which shows wide scholarship.
