About This Item

[Lisbon?], n.pr., (1758).. FIRST and ONLY EDITION. 4¡, disbound. Caption title. Light browning, light dampstain. In good to very good condition. 8 pp. *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION of this account of Russian actions in Prussia. The Russians had advanced into Prussia in 1757, but had withdrawn at the orders of Field Marshal Stepan Fyodorovich Apraksin when the Empress Elizabeth fell ill. Apraksin was recalled and Field Marshal Fermor was sent out (as explained here) to make it clear to Russia's allies in the Seven Years' War that Russia was still willing to fight. In January 1758, Russian troops again marched into Prussia, stopping at the border by the Empress's order to read a letter (pp. 2-4) explaining to the Prussians that the violence and plunder that occurred the last time the Russians were here were the fault of the Cossacks and "Calmucos" (Kalmyks?), and that those irregular troops are not part of the present force. Kšnigsberg, the former capital of Prussia, surrendered without a fight and swore allegiance to Russia. The Noticia includes a detailed account of the Russian troops and officers at Kšnigsberg and elsewhere in Prussia. The Russians occupied Kšnigsberg until 1763. The Seven YearsÕ War, 1756-1763, was waged in Europe, North America (where it began in 1754, and is known as the French and Indian War), Central and South America, West Africa, India (the Third Carnatic War), and the Philippines. Prussia, Great Britain, and (from 1761) Portugal were allied against France, Austria, Spain (from 1761), Russia (until 1762), Sweden (1757-1762), Saxony, and the Mughal Empire (from 1757). Aside from venting the ongoing antagonism amongst the Bourbons, Habsburgs, and Hohenzollerns, the countries were battling for overseas colonies and commercial superiority. As a result of the war, Great Britain annexed Canada, much North American territory west of the Alleghenies, and Florida, and became dominant in the Indian subcontinent. France transferred Louisiana to Spain. Prussia gained influence at the expense of the Holy Roman Empire, which is often considered to be the starting point for the rise of the modern German state. Removal of the French threat to the thirteen North American Colonies, and British attempts to obtain revenues from these colonies to compensate for wartime expenditures were major factors in the movement for Independence culminating in the American Revolution. *** Coimbra, Miscel‰neas 1060.
