Chaul PREFACE THE Commentarios do Grande Capitão Ruy Freyre de Andrade, published at Lisbon in 1647 by Paulo Craesbeeck, has never (so far as I know) been translated into any language, nor has it had a subsequent edition in Portugal. Copies of the original edition are extremely rare, and the work is less known than many manuscripts. The book deals with a period singularly to English readers as it describes at length the operations leading up to the capture from the Portuguese of the celebrated city and island of Ormuz, in the Persian Gulf, by an Anglo-Persian force.

No part of this book may be reprinted or reproduced or utilized in any form or by any electronic, mechanical, or other means, now known or hereafter invented, including photocopying and recording, or in any information storage or retrieval system, without permission in writing from the publishers. The publishers have made every effort to contact authors/copyright holders of the works reprinted in The Broadway Travellers. This has not been possible in every case, however, and we would welcome correspondence from those individuals/companies we have been unable to trace.

It is not unusual to taunt the Portuguese with a complete lack of genius for colonization, but this is only another way of saying that their methods are radically different from our own.
