4°, later plain wrappers. Woodcut of a person falling from a ship on title-page. Slight browning. Overall very good condition. Old manuscript notation in ink ("N.º 32.º") in upper outer corner of title page. Faint oval Lisbon bookseller's stamp on front wrapper. 7 pp. *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION of this rare newsletter describing massive flooding around Amsterdam and Hamburg due to a brutal storm on October 17, 1756. The receding waters exposed many dead residents, spoiled grain, dead livestock, and shipwrecks in the harbor. At a town near Hamburg, the entire harvest of wheat and tobacco was lost.The Noticia begins with a brief account of the fire which had recently destroyed much of Constantinople (pp. 3-4). Its breathless detailing of the "lamentaveis effetos da terra, agoa, ar, e fogo" must have resonated with the Portuguese, who had suffered terribly only the previous year during the Lisbon earthquake ("A terra que perigos não ameaça? Com dor os temos experimentado").The 1756 flood was severe enough to rate a mention in H.H. Lamb's Historic Storms of the North Sea, British Isles, and Northwest Europe (Cambridge University Press, 1991), p. 17.The woodcut on the title page has the look of a piece cropped from a larger work: the shape is irregular, and figures are most peculiar.This pamphlet exists in two states: one with the woodcut on the title page turned on its side. The present work depicts the image correctly positioned.*** Coimbra, Miscelâneas 262. Not in Innocêncio. Not in Azevedo-Samodães, Ameal, Avila Perez or Monteverde. Porbase locates three copies, all at the Biblioteca Nacional de Portugal. Not located in Copac. NUC: MH (two different states, one with title-page woodcut turned on its side).
