About this Item

4°, nineteenth-century quarter cloth over black-and-white marbled boards (hinges weak). Woodcut vignette of two ships at sea on title page. On p. 3, half-page woodcut of a fortress being bombarded; the town in the foreground has both a minaret and a steeple with a cross. Lower part of title page double-printed (as if the page shifted in the press). Browned (mostly light; title page and final leaf a bit darker). In good to very good condition. 14 pp. *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION of this newsletter relating to conflicts between the Mughal and Maratha empires. The focus is on "Aliakan," who learned military training from the Portuguese in Goa, then went on to capture Canará (southern India, modern presidency of Madras) and Sunda (north of Goa). OCLC catalogues the work under "Haidar Ali, Nawab of Mysore" (ca. 1722-1782), but the details given here do not seem to correspond with Haidar Ali's biography.*** Figanière 986. Not in Innocêncio.
