4°, disbound. Caption title. Foldlines. Light soiling on final page and a small hole, touching 3 letters. In good to very good condition. 11, (1) pp. *** First Edition thus: a Spanish translation of a German letter (pp. 6-11), preceded by a survey of events in Europe written by a student at Lérida near the beginning of the Nine Years' War.The letter describes the destruction of Speyer by French troops under General Ezéchiel du Mas, comte de Mélac. Mélac was charged by Louis XIV of France and his minister Louvois with destroying enemy lands, rather than seeking major military engagements. Carrying out the order "Brûlez le Palatinat!," Mélac so ravaged the present southwestern Germany that his name became synonymous with "murderer and arsonist." The author describes the destruction of the cathedral (which dated to the eleventh century), the home of the Elector of Trier, the Jesuit College, and other major buildings, as well as the violent deaths of many residents. In the cathedral, the bones of eight Holy Roman Emperors were thrown out of their graves, which were then filled up with wine and liquor. Mélac's name appears near the end, when he orders a Lutheran minister to preside over a funeral for Mélac's dog. The destruction of Heidelberg (for the first time), Landau, and Oppenheim are mentioned briefly, and the French are bitterly accused of learning how to kill and destroy from their allies, the Turks.The latest event mentioned seems to date from late June 1689, when the French garrison at Kaiserswerth (near Düsseldorf) surrendered to the Dutch and Brandenburg.After the death without issue in 1685 of Charles II, Elector Palatine, Louis XIV of France claimed that the title should pass to the Duchess of Orléans, Charles?s sister and Louis?s sister-in-law. The dispute over the succession provided the pretext for the French invasion of the Palatinate in 1688, which was the start of the Nine Years? War. Also known as the War of the Grand Alliance, the War of the Palatine Succession, or the War of the League of Augsburg, the Nine Years? War (1688-97) pitted Louis XIV of France against a coalition of England, the Holy Roman Empire, Spain, and Savoy.*** Not located in Palau. Not located in Coimbra, Miscelâneas.
