About this Item

4°, disbound, text-block edges sprinkled red. Caption title. Very good condition. 55 pp. Texts in Spanish and Portuguese. *** FIRST EDITION. A second edition appeared in 1799. Herein are documents exchanged between José Torrero, Spanish Ambassador in Lisbon, and Jacob O'Dunne, Minister Plenipotentiary of France in Lisbon, in Spanish with D. Luís da Cunha, Portuguese Secretary of State, who replied in Portuguese, from 16 March to 27 April 1762. Portugal eventually declared war against France and Spain on 18 May. The worldwide conflict known as the Seven Years' War (called the French and Indian War in North America) was reaching its final phases. Portugal had tried to remain neutral, but her ties to Great Britain had irritated the French and Spanish, whose diplomatic representatives tried to persuade Portugal to join the Bourbon family pact, arguing that Britain had become too powerful.The relationship between Portugal and Great Britain is discussed, as are commercial relations and navigation. On pp. 4-5 it is suggested that since Spain and Portugal share frontiers both in Europe and America, an alliance with France and Spain against Great Britain would be advantageous. On pp. 18-9 it is stated that the use of Portuguese ports is essential for the British attacks on French and Spanish commerce. On p. 22 is a reference to the treaty (of 1750?) setting the boundaries of Peru.*** Not in Innocêncio; on D. Luís da Cunha see V, 282-3; VII, 126, 144; XVI, 14; XX, 258; Aditamentos, pp. 274-5. Not in JCB, Portuguese and Brazilian Books. Porbase locates a single copy, in the Biblioteca Nacional de Portugal. Not located in Copac. Bookseller Inventory # 39213
