Wrappers. 16; 12 pp. First edition; bilingual: French and Portuguese. - Official decree by the Portuguese king Jospeh I of the 3rd of September 1759 in which the Jesuits were expelled both in Portugal and in its colonies. There were long-standing tensions between the Portuguese crown and the Jesuits, which increased when the Count of Oeiras (later the Marquis of Pombal) became the monarch's minister of state, culminating in the expulsion of the Jesuits in 1759. The Távora affair in 1758 could be considered a pretext for the expulsion and crown confiscation of Jesuit assets. According to historians James Lockhart and Stuart B. Schwartz, the Jesuits' 'independence, power, wealth, control of education, and ties to Rome made the Jesuits obvious targets for Pombal's brand of extreme regalism'. By this decree the Portuguese colonizers secured the expulsion of the Jesuits. [Boeknr.: 32840 ]

With large woodcut with 2 ships on title-page and folding engraved plate depicting 6 views of the fleet in various bays and harbours. (2),76 pp. The first official account of the circumnavigation was published in 1626. - Jacques Le Hermite (1582-1624) commanded a punitive fleet of eleven ships and 1637 men to the coasts of South America with the objective of clearing the westward route to the Pacific of Spanish and Portuguese shipping. The fleet was outfitted under the auspices of the Dutch gouvernment, the two major companies, the Dutch East India Company and the Dutch West India Company, having little interest in the Pacific route. With the flagship Amsterdam along with the Delft under vice-admiral Geen Huyghen Schapenham and with Adolph Decker, captain of marines, Le Hermite's fleet left Texel on 29-4-1623, raided the coast of Guinea, then sailed south of to the coast of Patagonia. It then passed through the Strait of Le Maire and sighted Cape Horn on 14-2-1624. While in the region the expedition discovered and anchored in the Bay of Nassau, charting the surrounding islands (including the Hermite group). In addition, it was shown for the first time that it was possible to sail northward through the Le Maire strait. After coasting South America and plundering a few Spanish settlements, the fleet continued across the Pacific and was eventually disbanded at Batavia. Le Hermite, already a sick man at the time of the outward voyage, died at Callao in Peru and was buried on San Lorenzo Island near Lima. Command passed to Schapenham, whose article contains details of the latter section of the voyage (Howgego p.615). This account is combined with a description of Peru by Pedro de Madriga, an account of an English expedition to Guyana in 1596 (Kort-journael, gedaen naer het gout-rijck coninckrijck Guiana) and a discourse on VOC trade, none of which appeared in previous printings. - A very nice copy with the bookplate of The Cruising Association.Tiele 667; Tiele, Mémoire, p.78; Landwehr, VOC, 250; European Americana II, p.491; Lach, Asia in the making of Europe, III,1 p.449.
