Contemporary ink inscription "7562" in upper outer corner of title page. 12 pp. *** First and only Edition in Portuguese [?]. In a meeting on Olympus, Jupiter describes the havoc Napoleon and his family have wreaked in Europe, and asks advice from famous rulers of the past: Peter the Great of Russia, Frederick II of Prussia, Lorenzo de' Medici, Henry IV of France, and Charles V of Germany (I of Spain). The conclusion is that "Hespanha, sobeja em valor, rica em talentos, fecunda em heroes, e tenaz em suas emprezas, dará a liberdade ao Occidente," and that the Russians, Austrians, and British will play their roles so that all of Europe can once again live "debaixo do poder dos verdadeiros Soberanos no seio da illustração, da segurança, e da abundancia."
