Notes

First edition of this rare account of the celebrated battle in which a coalition of Mediterranean states, partly under the legendary commander Mathurin Romegas, defeated the Turkish fleet off Lepanto in October 1571. Lepanto was the last major naval battle in the Mediterranean fought entirely between galleys and represented a significant defeat for the Ottomans, who had not lost a major naval battle since the 15th century. OCLC locates only copies at the British Library, NYPL, and Harvard. Auction records show two copies sold, in 2014 and 1958.
