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.
