A Narrative of the Naval Part of the Expedition to Portugal.
London: Sherwood, Gilbert, and Piper, 1833. . x. xv, 353, (1 errata) pp. b/w frontispiece and battle plan. “Under the orders of His Majesty, Dom Pedro, Duke of Braganza by Captain Mins ... with a vindication of himself against the aspersions of Vice-Admiral Sertorius, and his secretary, Captain Boid.” This is the book length version of a pamphlet war - or one side of it anyway. Mins defends himself again charges of misconduct during a very complicated sequence of events that culminated in a naval battle against the Portuguese in Vigo Bay in 1832. Scarce, Worldcat showing only nine libraries holding copies. Bound in original cloth with paper spine label. Plates are evenly tanned, text is clean.
