Published in London in 1728 this is the First Edition of this book on the Sale of Dunkirk at the end of the Anglo Spanish War , The Anglo-Spanish War was a conflict between the English Protectorate of Oliver Cromwell and Spain, between 1654 and 1660. It was caused by commercial rivalry. Each side attacked the other's commercial and colonial interests in various ways such as privateering and naval expeditions. In 1655, an English amphibious expedition invaded Spanish territory in the West Indies. The major land actions took place in the Spanish Netherlands. In 1657, England formed an alliance with France, merging the Anglo-Spanish war with the larger Franco-Spanish War. The war between France and Spain ended with the signing of the Peace of the Pyrenees on 28 October 1659. Cromwell's death in 1658 left England in political turmoil that would result in the return of the Stuarts to the throne of England. After the Restoration of Charles II in England, the Anglo-Spanish War was formally terminated in September 1660. Charles sold Dunkirk to Louis XIV of France in November 1662 - though less than £300,000 of the promised half million was ever paid THE BOOK The book is bound in an old full calf leather binding, 180 pages including unpaginated contents pages at rear, contains decorative woodcut chapter headers CONDITION loss to leather covering on spine back with some mild edge wear else binding is in solid condition, internally a few creased corners else contents generally nice and clean A GOOD EXAMPLE OF THIS VERY RARE BOOK … [Click Below for Full Description]
