About This Item

[Colophon] Lisbon, n.pr., (1758).. FIRST and ONLY EDITION. 4¡, old plain wrappers, chipping at spine. Caption title. Woodcut tailpiece on p. 7. Browning. Chipping at spine. In good condition, barely. A few old, faint ink and penciled notes on front wrapper: including "Noticia" and "No. 12." 7 pp. *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION. In 1758, the Prussian army under Frederick the Great invaded Moravia, besieging the Austrian city of OlmŸtz. Resistance was stronger than expected, and when Austrian reinforcements drew near, Frederick lifted the siege and withdrew from Moravia. OlmŸtz is now Olomouc, in the Czech Republic. 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 that culminated in the American Revolution. *** Coimbra, Miscel‰neas 1056, 1267.
