In good to very good condition. (1 l.), 13, (1) pp. *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION of this poem celebrating the victory of twenty-year-old D. Afonso VI at the Battle of Ameixial on June 8, 1663. In Spain it is usually called the Battle of Estremoz; here it is referred to as the Battle of Canal, after the parish near ƒvora where the battle took place. This was one of the major battles of the Restaura‹o, which effectively ended SpainÕs attempt to undo Portuguese independence, finally recognized in 1668. The Spanish had overrun southern Portugal under the leadership of D. Juan de Austria, natural son of Philip IV of Spain. The Portuguese, reinforced by English troops and led by Schomberg, inflicted heavy casualties and forced the Spanish to retreat across the border to Badajoz. The Spanish garrison at ƒvora… Read more

Good to very good condition. Early manuscript foliation in ink. (1 l.) *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION. Valdivieso, a judge who had been maligned in print by JosŽ Agustin de la Rosa y Herrera, here explains that Rosa y Herrera came to his court after a priest accused him of insulting him and blaspheming. Valdivieso then discovered that the accused had run off with an innocent young woman and had been living with her in poverty in Santiago. He sent the young woman to a decent home, assigned 15 days of community service to Rosa y Herrera, and released him on his own recognizance to return to his family.
