About this Item

4°, disbound. Maltese cross on title page. Woodcut headpiece with seven-line woodcut initial beneath it on p. 2. In good to very good condition. 8 pp. *** First and Only Edition in Portuguese. The Duke of Lorraine reports to Queen Maria Theresa a number of skirmishes and maneuvers and the capture of the town of Braunau. Among the troops engaged were Bavarians, Croatians, and Swedes. Braunau was a decisive victory over Bavaria.Charles Alexandre, duc de Lorraine (1712-1780) was one of the principal military commanders during the War of the Austrian Succession. He was defeated by Frederick the Great at the Battle of Chotusitz in 1742 and the Battle of Hohenfriedberg in 1745. In 1745, the two years after the battle described here, he married Maria Theresa of Austria's sister. He was later named governor of the Austrian Netherlands and Grand Master of the Teutonic Knights.An English translation was published in The London Gazette, May 14-17 1743.The War of the Austrian Succession began in 1740, with the death of Emperor Charles VI. It included several small conflicts: the War of Jenkins' Ear (which began in 1739), King George's War in North America (1744-1748), and two Silesian wars, finally ending in 1748 with the Treaty of Aix-la-Chapelle, which mostly returned territories to the status quo ante.The translator (1670-1760?), a native of Lisbon, began his studies in Portugal and extended them for 10 years, beginning in 1693, by traveling throughout Europe to study its politics and languages. Back in Portugal, he served from 1704 to 1710 as a cavalry captain in the War of the Spanish Succession. When the war ended he began to publish the Gazeta de Lisboa, of which he remained editor for more than 40 years. He also published numerous pamphlets such as this one, on current events.*** Innocêncio IV, 350. Gonçalves Rodrigues, A tradução em Portugal 753. Ameal 1022. Coimbra, Miscelâneas 896.
