The Conquest of Malacca
(Trans. Edgar Knowlton)
Francisco de Sa de Menses
This is not so much a historical account of Albuquerque's conquest of Malacca, but rather a poem written just over a hundred years after the event. The main purpose was to inspire Portuguese of the 18th century to emulate the feats of their ancestors. 234 pages including a bibliography and glossaries. Very Good Hardback in a similar Dust Jacket.

Condition : The unclipped dust jacket has slightly discoloured slightly with age and the title is mudged on the spine There is a little bit of spotting on the mildly tanned text block.. The binding is tight, the text is clear and there is minimal tanning throughout. A really nice copy
