Description:
[Colophon] Lisbon, Na Officina de Manoel Antonio, (1758).. FIRST and ONLY EDITION. 4¡, disbound. Caption title. Browned. In good condition. Old ink annotation ("N¼ 39") in upper outer corner of first leaf recto. 7 pp. *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION. Although the caption title states that this is "Segunda Parte", we have been unable to identify any first part in OCLC, Porbase or anywhere else. The account begins by noting that the 30,000 dead and wounded at the Battle of Zorndorf on August 25, 1758 did not give a noticeable advantage to either the Prussians or the Russians. The casualty figures published by each side are discussed somewhat skeptically. The Relaam goes on to describe the attitude of Empress Elizabeth to her allies; the movements of Russian, Prussian, and Austrian troops under Field Marshal Fermor, Prince Bevern, Field Marshal Daun, and Frederick II of Prussia; battles and maneuvers in Saxony and Brandenburg; and promotions within the armies. Also noted: the British defeat at St. Malo… Read more

Faint rubber-stamped monogram in purple, in lower outer corner of title page. Old ink annotation ("N¼ 40") in upper outer corner of title page. (1 l.), 5 pp. *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION of this detailed acccount of two British raids on French soil during the Seven Years' War. In August 1758, 8,000 British landed near Cherbourg and marched on the city. They collected a ransom, destroyed the town's fortifications and harbor defenses, and sailed off, having done about £169,000 in damage and suffered hardly any casualties. Coastal raids on France ("descents") were meant to divert French attention from Germany, lessening the pressure on Britain's ally, Prussia. Following the successful Cherbourg raid, Lt. General Thomas Bligh and General Richard Howe took their troops west to nearby St. Malo in September. There, however, the… Read more

A few old, faint ink and penciled notes on front wrapper: including "Noticia" and "No. 12." 7 pp. *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION.

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 The Russians had advanced into Prussia in 1757, but had withdrawn at the orders of Field Marshal Stepan Fyodorovich Apraksin when the Empress Elizabeth fell ill.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… Read more

Foliated in manuscript. 7 pp. *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION of this rare newsletter describing the origins of British-French conflict in Bengal during the Seven Years' War. The Noticia begins with the death in 1756 of Ali Vardi Khan, nawab of Bengal, and the march upon Calcutta by his impetuous successor, Suraj-ud-Dowlah, whose treatment of the British was characterized by "crueldades mais barbaras, e inauditas, e impraticaveis". The feeble resistance and capitulation of the British garrison at Fort William is described, followed by the "fatal disgraa" of the Black Hole of Calcutta, in which most of the British prisoners are said to have died after having been shut overnight in a small, unventilated room. According to this account, after 4,000 soldiers and many others died, the remaining defenders of the fortress that guarded Calcutta surrendered. The Noticia comments that… Read more

In very good condition. 8 pp. *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION of this survey of martial activities across Europe during the Spring of 1757. The Prussians mustered 95,000 men plus 50,000 from Silesia and additional auxiliary troops, and captured Rittberg, the home of the Count of Caunitz. Meanwhile, thousands of Saxon soldiers who had been forced to join the Prussian army were deserting; Frederick the Great ordered that their possessions in Saxony be confiscated and their families be forced to pay for the equipment they had taken with them. The French (with whom the author sympathizes) were still in Cleves, and Charles de Rohan, Prince of Soubise, was preparing to invade the electorate of Hanover (June and July 1757). A joint statement from the kings of France and Sweden stated that they were merely defending the Peace of Westphalia (1648), according to which power in… Read more

He will also raise a fleet, which will sail with ships from Denmark. The commanders of the troops and the ships are to preserve the peace, but if anyone attacks them, they are to respond with force. Aside from the king's declaration of war, the Noticia includes about three pages of text setting the political context and describing the immediate effects. Adolphus Frederick states that he is acting based on Sweden's role as guarantor of the Treaty of Westphalia (1648).

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.

[Colophon] Lisbon, Na Offic. junto a S. Bento de Xabregas, 1757.. FIRST and ONLY EDITION. 4¡, stitched (splitting at fold). Caption title. Light browning. In very good condition. 8 pp. *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION. At the Battle of Prague (capital of Bohemia) on May 6, 1757, Frederick II of Prussia defeated the Austrians under Charles of Lorraine, but suffered too many casualties to attack the city itself, and settled in to besiege it. This account describes the difficulties the Austrians were having with supplies (pp. 6-7), as well as giving the number of combatants, number of casualties, losses of artillery, a summary of the lines of battle and tactics for the Battle of Prague, and a brief description of the celebrations decreed by Frederick after the victory. Unlike most accounts of this sort, the author seems to have gathered numbers from several sources and considered which were likely to be most accurate (pp. 4-5). Soon after the Battle of Prague, the Austrians sent a relief force under Graf… Read more
