Catalogue Note

The first and only edition of this poem on the siege of Chaul, an important Portuguese trading centre forty miles south east of Bombay, which was besieged by the Indians under Adil Shah in late 1570. The Portuguese were forewarned of the imminent attack and, under the daring leadership of Viceroy Luis de Ataide, fought off the Indians who retired in defeat in 1571. The failure to capture Chaul, Goa, or any major Portuguese outpost ended the great Indian war against the Portuguese empire in Asia.
