About This Item

London: Printed for T. Cooper..., 1739. 63, [1 blank] pp. Bound in modern vellum. Early leaves dusted, minor scattered foxing. Else Very Good.

"In Spanish and English, and relates principally to affairs in America" [Sabin], with particular emphasis on Florida. The book charges that the King of England authorized Captains of the ships 'Pompey Galley' and 'Fortune' to cruise the Florida coast and collect loot from ship-wrecks. With a force of 600 men, the English overpowered Spaniards who were guarding their own collection of salvaged loot, and "did rob about 400,000 pesoes without any other pretense but that of their greediness."
The Madrid printing in Spanish issued earlier in 1739.The document sets forth Spanish grievances dating from the early 1700s relating to conflicts in the New World-- from Newfoundland to Florida and the West Indies. The conflicts came to a head in the War of Jenkins' Ear, commenced in October 1739.
Sabin 17026. Servies 334. Bartlett, John Carter Brown Library 618. ESTC N27944.
