The History of Alphonso King of Portugal dated 1677 by Samuel Pepys and published by Richard Tonson London.  The book is bound in dark leather with a strong spine with 4 rings. It measures 18 x 11.6cms. The pages are tight and in good condition. The front page is torn a little and the last page is missing, there are 347 pages in total. This is a very rare book and 337 years old!

The Portugal history, or, A relation of the troubles that happened in the court of Portugal in the years 1667 and 1668 in which is to be seen that great transaction of the renunciation of the crown by Alphonso the Sixth, the dissolution of his marriage with the Princess Maria Frances Isabella of Savoy : the marriage of the same princess to the Prince Don Pedro, regent of the realm of Portugal, and the reasons alledged at Rome for the dispensation thereof / by S.P., Esq.

 Per the ESTC, "apparently this work a translation of "Relation des Troubles Arrivez dans la Cour de Portugal" by Michel Blouin de la Piquetierre. This work has also attributed to Samuel Pepys, but the attribution is doubtful." However, this being said & for what it's worth, we do note "S.P., Esq." on the title-page and the fact a copy resides in Pepys' library at Magdalene College, Cambridge. Scarce in the trade, with ABPC showing 1993 as the last time at auction
