  • Item
  • 1760-1766

Indice. Tumulto de Madrid del anno 1766 .... Instruccion a Principes an malos Jesuitas.

The second section, ("Instruccaõ a Principes, sobre a Politica dos Padres Jesuittas") a translation from Italian into Portuguese, consists of instructions to rulers against the Jesuits, apparently in a single hand, dated Lisbon, 1760. The manuscript is in fragile condition: some leaves have become detached from the spine.
