        Relação da victoria, que o Principe Thomas teve em Italia, na qual desbaratou dezoito Cornetas de Cavalleria Castelhana. Com os artigos da entrega de Salces a obediencia del Rey Christianissimo. Conforme a copia impressa em Paris.

      Lisbon, Na Officina de Lourenço de Anveres, 1642. - 4°, recent antique sheep, spine gilt with raised bands in six compartments, crimson leather lettering-piece in second compartment from head, gilt letter, text-block edges rouged. Caption title. Woodcut initial. In very good condition. Old oval paper ticket with shelfmark 1746 in blank margin of recto of first leaf. (4 ll.). *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION. Very rare tract dealing with military struggles between French and Spanish forces in the north of Italy, south of France, and Catalonia: Savoy, Perpignan, Roussillon, and Milan are mentioned. The author mentions the names of military leaders, the strength of the troops they commanded, and how many on each side were taken prisoner or killed. This was a minor action in the brutal course of the Thirty Years' War (1618-1648), which began as a religious conflict between Catholics and Protestants within the Holy Roman Empire, and evolved into a battle between the Bourbons and Habsburgs.Leaves 3v-4r include the leaders' agreements on behalf of the kings of Spain and France regarding the withdrawal of troops and artillery from Les Salces (Languedoc-Roussillon region in south-central France), including mention that the Catalans will be allowed to withdraw as well. Although the 1640 rebellion in Catalonia (the "Reapers' War" or Guerra dels Segadors) failed, it significantly affected the outcome of the Portuguese struggle for independence, since it prevented the King of Spain from directing his full military might against Portugal.*** Arouca R215 (without citing an actual copy, purportedly having taken the information from Martins Carvalho, "p. 235"; gives slightly different transcription of the title page, and a collation of only 4 numbered pages; we looked at p. 235 in both volumes of Martins de Carvalho, but could not find any reference to the present work).

        De Reliquis Animalibus exanguibus libri quatuor, post mortem eius editi: Nempe de Mollibus, Crustaceis, Testaceis, et Zoophytis...

      Bononiae, J.B. Ferroni, 1642. Folio (355 x 232mm). pp. (8, including one blank leaf)), 593, (29), including an engraved allegorical title and about 600 partly full-page woodcuts in the text. Contemporary vellum, spine in 6 compartments (fronthinges cracked but firm). The first major work on shells. The first edition was published in 1606. Aldrovandi was a truly Renaissance universal mind, writing on many aspects of natural history. His oeuvre consists of 13 large folio volumes, of which only 4 appeared during his lifetime. "Although Aldrovandi is not identified with any revolutionary discoveries, his work as a teacher and as the author of volumes that constitute an irreplacable cultural patrimony earns him a place among the fathers of modern science. Perhaps most importantly he was among the first to attempt to free the natural sciences from the stifling influence of the authority of textbooks, for which he substituted, as far as possible, direct study and observation of the animal, vegetable, and mineral worlds" (DSB I, pp. 108-110). The work deals likewise with crustacea and zoophytes. A clean copy.//Provenance: heraldic bookplates of Philip M. Chancellor and Sir Richard Vyvyan.//Nissen ZBI. 68; B.M.(Nat. Hist.)I, 26.

        Relacion de la interpressa, y saqueamiento de la villa del Carte en Africa

      1642 - The taking of a Muslim city in North Africa, one of two known copies. 1642. Madrid. Juan Sanchez. In folio (280 mm x 206 mm). 2 ff. Unbound. Lower margin a little cropped, not affecting text, minor spotting, else very good. First edition. Rare imprint –one of two known copies-, with news of the capture, and looting of Carte (Oran, originally taken by Spanish forces in 1509); the imprint provides details of the Muslims who inhabit the region, populated mostly by “Xarifes Morabitos”; whom, according to the writer, descend directly from Mahoma, are reputed to be braver than common, and to have troubled the forces at Oran for long enough. Near Oran –where Spanish forces settled-, the Turks fortified a city called Carte, which made the Spanish restless, for the strategic military location of it. The core of the relation details the battle and military actions as that of Salomon Zaporta “de los primeros que entro en el lugar, y mato a un Moro cuerpo a cuerpo”, and the exposition of Luis de Cervantes, who entered the place, securing it, and making sure there was no “Moor” alive.

        De la Vertu des Payens.

      A Paris, chez François Targa, 1642. - in-4. 4ff. 374pp. Plein veau, dos à nerfs orné, plats ornés d'un encadrement doré à la Du Seuil, pièces de titre postérieures (reliure de l'époque un peu restaurée). Edition Originale, dédiée au Cardinal de Richelieu qui en est peut-être le commanditaire, de l'un des ouvrages les plus polémiques du célèbre philosophe sceptique François de La Mothe Le Vayer (1588-1672). Cette réhabilitation des philosophes païens de l'Antiquité, qui soutenait de façon plus ou moins voilée que "l'homme depuis sa chute trouve assez de force en lui-même pour opérer son salut sans le secours de Jésus-Christ" (Busson), était non seulement un traité philosophique et théologique, avec notamment un chapitre sur "Confucius le Socrate de la Chine" (pp.278-291), mais aussi un livre politique qui servait les intérêts de Richelieu dans sa lutte contre la doctrine janséniste. Les pages 371-374 furent ajoutées en hâte alors que l'ouvrage était déjà imprimé, pour apporter des précisions sur certains propos de l'auteur: "Comme les dernières feüilles de ce livre rouloient déjà sous la Presse, on m'a donné advis que quelques personnes qui aboient eu la curiosité de les voir à mesure qu'on les tiroit, s'étoient scandalisées de ce que j'escris en la page 74 ". Signature ancienne grattée et doublée sur le titre. Autre signature biffée: "Moreau". Sur le contreplat supérieur, inscription manuscrite: "J. de Bonne. Col. Acheté à la vente Bazin à Paris en 1853 me revient à dix francs". Bel exemplaire dans une jolie reliure à la Du Seuil. Jammes, Libertins Erudits, 227. Tchemerzine, VI, 483. Pintard, 845.

      Bologna, Io. Baptista Ferronij, 1642 (ma 1654 al colophon), rilegato in piena pergamena coeva, tassello in pelle al dorso, tagli spruzzati in blu, bel frontespizio calcografico ad imitazione di quello dell'edizione del 1606 di Giovanni Battista Bellagamba, pp. (2)-593-(28) ma ripetute nella numerazione le pagine 421-422 e omesse le pagine 429-430, con circa 600 incisioni xilografiche nel testo. Bella marca editoriale in fine: Ercole con la clava uccide l'Idra di Lerna. Ai suoi piedi, una fiaccola ed una spada. Sullo sfondo una palma. Motto su un nastro: Invidia virtute superavit. Questa edizione ? identica alla prima se non per il mancato inserimento delle prime pagine di dedicatoria e del non sempre presente ritratto di Aldrovandi. Macchie di inchiostro al frontespizio ma per il resto ottimo esemplare.

Cum omnibus Fluminib, ab utroque latere, in llum fluentibus Antique map chart Danubius Fluvius Europae Maximus a Fontibus ad Ostia Willem Blaeu Subject: Southeastern Europe Date: 1642 Size of the leaf: 49x107 cm. This map depicts the course of the river Danube and the surrounding countries from its headwaters in the Black Forest of southern Germany to its mouth on the Black Sea. The river flows through a series of broad and fertile valleys with several of eastern Europe's most important cities on its banks. This is one of Blaeu's largest atlas maps, printed on two joined sheets. The extravagant title cartouche is flanked by the Holy Roman Emperor and Europa on one side and the Ottoman Sultan and Asia on the other, representing the long struggle between the two powers for control of the region. The scale of miles is attended by an assortment of muscular river gods and putti representing the mighty river and its tributaries. A nice impression with beautiful old color. There are some restorations, please look the pictures. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Basilea

      Frankfurt: Mattheus Merian, 1642. unbound. Panorama. Uncolored copper engraving. Image measures 7.75 x 27.25". This exquisite panoramic view by Matthaus Merian depicts the city of Basel, Switzerland, located along the banks of the river Rhine. This view overlooks the city as seen from the east looking westward. The Basel Minster or Basler Munster can be seen across the Rhine towering over the rest of the city. The view beautifully illustrates the streets with people either walking or riding in the foreground. Small boats can be seen plying the Rhine with hills in the background.<br><br>The view is in good condition with minimal wear along the folds. Some fading along the joint. The Swiss-born Matthäus Merian (1593-1650) studied in Zurich and Paris before moving to Frankfurt, where he worked as an engraver, etcher and publisher. He lived in Basel, the city he was born in, for brief periods during his lifetime. This panorama is a beautiful example of his work.

Small 4to, approximately 200 x 140 mm, 7¾ x 5½ inches, printer's pictorial device on title page, title page printed red and black, 2 engraved plates of the cabbalistic tree, pages: (8), 208, lacking final Errata leaf, bound modern full calf, ornate blind stamped border to covers, raised bands to spine, small blind motif in compartments, gilt lettered red morocco label, new endpapers. Title page unevenly browned, showing signs of damp damage, small repair to upper corner, tiny chip to lower corner, a few old paper repairs on reverse to strengthen, lower third of next few pages lightly browned, diminishing to affect lower margin only and disappearing by page 31, small damp stain to upper margin of last few leaves, leaves throughout slightly wavy, small neat ink Hebrew inscription to title page. A good plus copy of a rare book lacking only the Errata leaf. This work on the Sepher Yetzirah (Sefer Yezir and various other spellings) or "Book of Formation", perhaps the oldest Rabbinical treatise of Kabalistic philosophy which is still extant, originates possibly from as early as the third centuiry AD. The first Latin translation was made by Guillaume Postel and published in Paris in 1552; a second translation by Johannes Pistorius was published in the In Tomas Primus of "Artis Cabalisticae" in Basle in 1587. Rittangel (1606-1652) was Professor of Hebrew at the University of Konigsberg and his version is the first to give parallel texts. He also added the "32 Paths of Wisdom" in Hebrew and Latin, followed by the commentary on the the Paths of Wisdom (also in Latin and Hebrew), and an explanation by him of it. The commentary is now believed to be by the 14th century writer Joseph ben Shalom ha-Ashkenazi. MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING, ALL ZOOMABLE. FURTHER IMAGES ON REQUEST. POSTAGE AT COST.

        Histoire de la ville de Marseille

      ParClaude Garcin 1642 - - ParClaude Garcin, àMarseille 1642, grand in-4 (23x34cm) ; marges : 215x330mm, [20] 459pp [15] p. - Signatures : a4 e6 A-Nnn4 Ooo (manque le feuillet blanc)., relié. - Rare édition originale de cette première histoire de Marseille qui ne connut pas de réédition sous cette forme. Un exemplaire en Suisse, un à Berlin et deux à Parme et Turin. Page de titre en rouge et noir comportant une grande vignette aux armes de Marseille entourée de la devise « Massillia Civitas ». L'exemplaire contient un plan de la ville dessiné par Jacques Maretz et gravé par Maretty, numérotant les « lieus [sic] les plus remarquables » de la cité, avant les agrandissements entrepris à partir de 1669. Quelques bois in-texte figurant des monnaies anciennes et des antiquités. Bandeaux et lettrines. Noms des auteurs évoqués en marge. Ex-dono à la plume de l'époque et tampon de cire sur les gardes. Importante reliure de l'époque en plein maroquin citron à semis de fleurs de lys, dos à cinq nerfs orné de roulettes dorées et de caissons fleurdelisés, large dentelle dorée en encadrement des plats frappés d'un semis de fleurs de lys doré, toutes tranches dorées. Mors, coiffes et coins habilement restaurés. Rousseurs éparses, un peu plus marquées en début de volume. Une amusante et très discrète restauration à l'endroit du sexe du putto de droite sur la carte. L'ouvrage, couvrant une période de l'Antiquité jusqu'à 1610, se divise en dix livres traitant des sujets suivants : - fondation de Marseille jusqu'à la guerre civile entre César et Pompée, ses peuples anciens, l'arrivée des Phocéens et l'étymologie du nom de la ville, - état de la ville pendant quatre siècles, sa place dans l'Empire romain et les différents gouvernements (burgondes, goths puis francs) qui y ont été établis sous les Empereurs, - puissance des vicomtes de Marseille et généalogie des comtes de Provence appelés par l'auteur « la première race », - rachat et contention de la Seigneurie par les Marseillais et alliance avec Nice et le Comte d'Empurias, - première convention entre Charles d'Anjou (comte de Provence) et la ville de Marseille et amitié du Roi de Castille, - mort du Roi René et passation de pouvoir à Charles du Maine, puis à Louis XI, - tentatives de siège déjouées et entrée du Roi Charles IX dans la ville, - prise de pouvoir de Charles de Casaulx, favorisée par la Comtesse de Sault, et tyrannie qu'il instaure à la fin du XVIème siècle, - ordre et succession des évêques de Marseille de Saint Lazare à Pierre Gérard, - différents édifices publics, encore en place ou en ruine. Antoine de Ruffi (1607-1689) est un historien marseillais ; il fut conseiller à la sénéchaussée de Marseille et conseiller d'Etat. Il est le petit-fils de Robert Ruffi (1542-1634), secrétaire et confident de Charles de Casaulx et premier archivaire rémunéré de la ville de Marseille. Après sa mort, Antoine de Ruffi conserva les papiers de son grand-père qui furent pour lui d'un secours documentaire précieux dans la rédaction de ses différents ouvrages historiques. En 1696, après la disparition d'Antoine, Louis-Antoine de Ruffi (1657-1724) publia une seconde édition augmentée de l'Histoire de la ville de Marseille qui fut en partie financée par la ville elle-même. Cette Histoire, qui connut un grand succès au moment de sa parution est, de nos jours encore, une référence incontournable pour l'histoire marseillaise, de nombreux documents et lieux évoqués ayant aujourd'hui disparu. C'est la première fois qu'un historien entreprit de rédiger une histoire aussi étendue de la cité phocéenne, comme le souligne Ruffi dans sa préface : « Bien qu'un si noble sujet deut [dut] obliger les rares esprits qu'elle [Marseille] a produit de temps en temps d'exercer leur plume à descrire de si belles choses, & d'informer la postérité de ce qui estoit arrivé de remarquable dans leur Patrie : Il ne s'en est trouvé aucun qui ait voulu prendre la peine d'en recueillir l'Histoire, ou de laisser des mémoires de ce qu'il avoit veu ou appris [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The acts and monuments of the church before Christ incarnate.

      London: Miles Flesher & Robert Young Folio (27.7 cm, 10.9"). [4], 307, [1 (blank)], 313–552 pp.. 1642 First edition: Doctrinal discussion by Richard Montagu (or Mountague), Bishop of Norwich. A controversial theologian, Montagu sought to moderate between the extremes of Catholicism and Calvinism, with his stated goal being to support the Anglican Church by standing "in the gapp against Puritanisme and Popery" (Correspondence of John Cosin, 1.21). Allibone, however, joins many of the bishop's contemporaries in feeling that "There is no doubt as to the place where Bishop Montagu desired to go and to carry with him the king and the Church of England, — to the bosom of the Church of Rome." In the present work Montagu examines Jewish doctrine and practices before the birth of Jesus, and their implications for Christianity; in doing so he argues strongly against Casaubon, Scaliger, and other Protestant scholars, while defending the Catholic Baronius and his Annales Ecclesiastici. The dedication, written in Latin and Greek, is addressed to Jesus Christ. Contemporary mottled calf, shellacked, covers framed and panelled in blind double fillets with blind-tooled corner fleurons, simply rebacked (without labels) with complementary mottled calf; board edges with gilt roll. Original leather rubbed, shellac showing small cracks, edge gilt mostly lost; title-page with small early inked addition to author's name and with inked numeral in lower margin. One early inked marginal annotation, one early inked doodle in lower margin. First and last few leaves with margins browned; light age-toning throughout; occasional foxing and spots of staining.

        De la Vertu des Payens.

      Chez François Targa, A Paris 1642 - In-4 de (8)-374 pp., basane fauve, dos orné à nerfs, armes sur les plats dans un triple filet doré d'encadrement avec motifs d'angle, tranches jaspées (reliure de l'époque). Edition originale. Important traité philosophique dans lequel La Mothe Le Vayer avance que le Salut ou la Rédemption peuvent s'opérer sans le secours de Jésus-Christ - après avoir établi que les bonnes actions des païens sont autant de véritables vertus. Arnauld répondit à cet ouvrage dans De la nécessité de la foi Jésus-Christ. De fait la Vertu des Payens était déjà réfutée à l'avance par l'Augustinus et Port-Royal devait, sur les traces de Jansénius, s'élever durant des années contre la doctrine de La Mothe Le Vayer et dresser contre le rationalisme et le déisme qu'il développe ici, la doctrine de la grâce justifiante. Sentant que l'ouvrage risquait de faire scandale, La Mothe Le Vayer rajouta, alors que le livre était déjà imprimé, quelques pages (pp. 371-374 de cette édition) pour se justifier d'une comparaison qu'il avait établie entre Saint-Etienne et Socrate (Henri Busson, La pensée religieuse française de Charron à Pascal, 1934). L'ouvrage, qui pouvait n'avoir qu'un propos philosophique et religieux, était aussi un livre politique « très utile pour aider contre une austérité fanatique qu'il estimait dangereuse pour la paix des consciences, les efforts de Richelieu » (Pintard, p. 520). Bel exemplaire. Menues restaurations, légères épidermures sur la reliure. Exemplaire aux armes de la Ville de Rennes ; ex-libris manuscrit à l'encre du temps « Lucus aîné » sur le titre, traces manuscrites anciennes sur la garde supérieure.

        Breves arabicae lingua institutiones.

      Rome, Propaganda Fide, Joseph David Luna, 1642. - Folio (220 x 316 mm). (12), 349, (1) pp., final blank f. With the Propaganda Fide's woodcut rectangular Jesus and Apostles device on the title-page, their round Jesus and Apostles device above the colophon, 1 woodcut tailpiece, 2 woodcut decorated initials (2 series), and numerous decorations built up from cast arabesque fleurons. Set in roman, italic and Arabic type with incidental Hebrew. Contemp. limp vellum with ms. spine title. First and only edition of Guadagnoli's Latin grammar of the Arabic language, in a luxurious folio format. In 1632 the Propaganda Fide had begun work on an Arabic Bible that was not to be completed until 1671. Guadagnoli (1596-1656) was one of the correctors for the Bible and in the present grammar, set in the same type, he notes that they have taken special care with their Arabic setting and with the metre to suit them to the desires of native Arabic speakers, though the fact that the text was in Latin and the fact that it must have been an expensive book would have limited the audience: it is not the sort of book that missionaries would give away to common people. Erpenius's 1613 grammar, revised and reprinted several times, was aimed primarily at European scholars. The main text opens with a table of the letters, showing (from left to right!) the stand-alone, initial, medial and final forms, along with the name of each letter and its pronunciation. This gives an overview of the new Arabic Bible type. The texts used as examples include the first printing of two poems taken from manuscripts in the oriental library collected by Pietro della Valle (1586-1652) in Rome: the "Carmen Chazregiacum" and the "Carmen de invocationibus". The Arabic type may have been cut by the Propaganda Fide's in-house punchcutters for their Arabic folio Bible, whose Pentateuch was printed from 1632 to 1635 but distributed only in proof copies until the complete Bible was published in 1671. Occasional lines appear in their other books from 1636, but the present book uses it for the main Arabic text. It was to become the staple of their Arabic printing. The book also provides a synopsis of the Propaganda Fide's large Hebrew type (6 mm mem-height). - Some browning throughout; a few old ink markings to the margins; contemp. ownership "J. Venturi" on t. p. An important Arabic grammar intended for native speakers. Schnurrer 72. Smitskamp 220. Amaduzzi 11. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Peristromata Turcica, sive dissertatio emblematica, praesentem Europae statum ingeniosis coloribus repraesentans.

      [Nürnberg, Wolfgang Endter] (ad 1 with a false colophon: Paris, Toussaint du Bray), 1641-1642. - (2) [Harsdörffer, Georg Philipp]. Germania deplorata, sive relatio, qua pragmatica momenta belli pacisque expenduntur. (3) [Milag, Martin]. Aulaea Romana, contra Peristromata Turcica expansa: sive dissertatio emblematica, concordiae Christianae omen repraesentans. (4) [Anonymous French critic of Cardinal Richelieu]. Gallia deplorata, sive relatio, de luctuoso bello, quod rex Christianissimus contra vicinos populos molitur. 4 editions published together in 1 volume. 4to. With 2 engraved title-plates plus 12 full-page engraved emblematic illustrations, all on integral leaves, each with a small plate nested in a larger plate (7 in the Peristromata with a varying plate black and the same outer plate of a Persian carpet in orange). Gold-tooled light brown calf (ca. 1820?) by Charles Murton in London. Rare first and only Latin editions (probably the first and only early editions in any language) of four closely related polemical pamphlets on European policy toward the Ottoman Empire. The publication was instigated by the prominent Nuremberg poet and jurist Georg Philipp Harsdörffer (1607-1658), who somehow got access to the French manuscripts of the pro-Richelieu "Peristromata Turcica" (Turkish carpets), and the anti-Richelieu "Gallia deplorata", translated them into Latin, edited them for publication and added what is believed to be his own anti-French Latin rebuttal of the former, "Germania deplorata". On 26 November 1641 he sent all three to the Calvinist Prince Ludwig of Anhalt-Köthen, founding president of the Fruchtbringende Gesellschaft in Weimar, who found the "Peristromata Turcica" shocking and dangerous, not only for its content but also because its remarkable and "seductive" graphic form. At a spring 1642 meeting of the society Ludwig initiated the writing and production of an emblematic rebuttal, the "Aulaea Romana" (Roman tapestries). Besides the political importance of these pamphlets as records of differing European attitudes toward the Ottoman Empire, they are remarkable graphic and typographic artefacts, early examples of colour printing and important emblemata. In 1536 Francois I had formed an alliance with the Ottoman Emperor Suleiman the Magnificent, and for a century Franco-Ottoman relations swung between extremes. Around 1626 Cardinal Richelieu began to encourage noblemen to strengthen France's economy by expanding its maritime trade in the Middle East, Near East and beyond. But with its great maritime power, the Ottoman Empire was not only a potentially valuable trading partner but also a fierce competitor and even a military threat to Europe's trade in those regions. Richelieu therefore attempted to form a Catholic union with the Holy Roman Empire and others to fight against the Ottomans. With owner's inscription of the lawyer and diplomat Georg Achatz Heher (1601-67) and bookplate of Robert Hoe (1839-1909), one of the greatest book collectors of all time. With the last quires (E-H) of the "Aulaea Romana" misbound following the last quire (G) of Gallia. A small marginal worm hole in the first work and the first leaves of the second, and an occasional small marginal chip or tear, but still in good condition. The binding with cracks in the hinges and some wear at the extremities, but otherwise good. Although these four editions were clearly designed to be published together, only about a dozen complete sets are known to survive, nearly all in Germany, Austria and Poland. Faber de Four 497-500.

In what manner, and how zealously (like them) he is affected with the moving of the Spirit. With the holy Sifters desire of copulation (if he would seem holy, sincere, and pure) were it with the Devil himself. As also, the Amsterdammian definition of a Familist."

      [London. 1642]. "First edition, small 4to, pp. [8]; title-page woodcut; bound by Mackenzie in full olive morocco decorated in gilt, spine elaborately gilt, inner dentelles, marbled endpapers; joints rubbed, else very good. John Taylor, called ""The Water Poet,"" was a waterman, collector of the wine fees for the Lieutenant of the Tower, and keeper of a public house at Oxford and Westminster. He wrote a vast number of pamphlets numbering some 138 on a variety of subjects which were first collected in 1630. Taylor was known for his eccentric exploits, one of which was sailing on the Thames in a boat made of brown paper. In this work the title-page contains an interesting woodcut which is from the block used for Taylor's ""A Reply as true as Steele"" (1641), reproduced in the catalogue of the Clawson Sale 1926. In this version the devil's horns were, however, removed from the block, so as to show him transformed into a Roundhead. Wise, Ashley Library, vol. 7, p. 92."

        Discurso politico sobre o se aver de largar a Coroa de Portugal, Angola, S. Thome, & Maranhão, exclamado aos Altos, & Poderosos Estados de Olanda.

      Lisbon, Por Antonio Alvarez, 1642; colophon: Vendese em Casa de Andre Godinho, & impresso a sua custa. - 4°, disbound. Large woodcut arms of Portugal on title-page, woodcut initial. Some light dampstaining. In good to very good condition. (6 ll.). *** First Portuguese translation of Andrada Leitão's @Copia primae allegationis . legatus ad . ordines generales Foederati Belgij . (The Hague, 1642). Andrada Leitão protests against the activities of Admiral Cornelius Corneliszoon Jol (also known as Pé de Pau) and other attacks on Portuguese possessions by the Dutch, in violation of the ten-year peace treaties between their country and Portugal signed in 1641 and 1642. He mentions specifically the fleet under Jol that went to Angola and S. Thomé, and the activities of the same Admiral in Maranhão and Pernambuco. He also argues that the newly independent kingdom of Portugal should not be treated as a vassal of Spain, with whom the Dutch were at war.Andrade Leitão (born at Condeixa, near Coimbra; d. 1655) was chosen to pronounce an oration at D.

      [Colophon] Lisbon, Na Officina de Domingos Lopes Rosa, 1642. - 8°, disbound. Caption title. Elegant woodcut initial "T" on recto of first leaf. Upper margin cut short, but never touching text. Single pinpoint wormhole in lower inner margins, never affecting the text. A bit of light toning. Overall in good to very good condition. [4 ll.]. *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION. Describes an engagement during the war for the restoration of Portuguese independence (the Restauração) that occurred on July 24, 1642, as well as events leading up to that engagement and subsequent events near Olivença, Badajoz and Elvas on the Portuguese-Spanish frontier. Fighting between Spain and Portugal broke out periodically from 1640, when D. João IV was acclaimed king of Portugal, to 1668, when the Treaty of Lisbon was signed. During those 28 years, only five major battles were fought. Usually the hostilities took the form of border skirmishes and sacks of nearby towns, of the sort described in this newsletter.*** Arouca A82. Cruz, Tipografia portuguesa do séc.
