Ribeiro, a Portugese captain stationed in India was sent to Ceylon where he served for many years (1641-1658) in the Portugese army against the Dutch. His account was translated into French from a Portuguese manuscript, presented to the king in 1685, by Joachim Le Grand and published in 1701 (Paris). A Portugese first edition was published in 1836. This English version by George Lee has been enlarged with an appendix. Ribeiro's history comprises a general account of Ceylon followed by a part devoted to the war between the Portugese, the natives and the Dutch.

From the library of Swedish antiquarian bookdealer Björn Löwendahl (1941-2013).
