About This Item

Lisbon, Na Offic. de Pedro Ferreira, 1757.. First Edition in Portuguese. 4¡, disbound. Woodcut vignette on title page. Woodcut headpiece and five-line woodcut factotum initial on p. 3. Light browning. Splitting at fold. In good to very good condition. 7 pp. *** First and Only Edition in Portuguese. Frederick the Great (Frederick II of Prussia) began the Seven Years' War campaign on the European mainland in 1756, by invading Saxony, which was allied with the French, Austrians, and Russians. The Saxon army, cornered at Pirna, surrendered in October 1756 and was forcibly incorporated into the Prussian army. In this letter written to the Holy Roman Emperor Francis I from Warsaw on November 22, 1756, Augustus III, King of Poland, Grand Duke of Lithuania, and Elector of Saxony, summarizes events, complains about King Frederick's aggressive behavior, and asks that he behave as justice dictates, and withdraw from Saxony. 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 7821, 1593.
