About This Item

[Colophon] Lisbon, Na Officina de Francisco Borges de Sousa, 1760.. FIRST and ONLY EDITION. 4¡, disbound. Caption title. Corner torn off second leaf, with loss of several words on 4 lines, both sides. Small wormhole at top of last 2 leaves, touching half a dozen letters. Browned. In slightly defective, sub-par condition. (4 ll.). *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION of this report describing in enthusiastic detail (sometimes hour by hour) the actions of Austrian Field Marshal Count Leopold Joseph von Daun in the Seven Years' War. On November 20, 1759, at the Battle of Maxen (Saxony), 40,000 Austrians under Daun defeated a Prussian army of 13,000 men under General Friedrich August von Finck. Finck surrendered the following day. The account ends with the Austrians and Prussians settling into winter quarters. The defeat at Maxen, along with major Prussian setbacks at the battles of Kay (Paltzig) and Kundersdorf, drove Frederick the Great to the brink of abdication and suicide by the end of 1759. 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 1071, 1278. Not in Innocncio or Fonseca, Pseud—nimos. Porbase locates three copies, all in the Biblioteca Nacional de Portugal (1 in poor condition). Not located in Copac.
