João Tavares de Velez Guerreiro. Jornada que o senhor Antonio de Albuquerque Coelho Governador, e Capitam geral Da Ciudad do Nome de Deos de Macao na China, Fes de Goa athe chegar a ditta cide. : Divida em duas partes.  [Peking?: s.n., 1718?]  [Journey made by António de Albuquerque Coelho, governor and captain general of the City of the Name of God of Macau in China, from Goa to said city: Divided into two parts.]

A very rare 1718 Macanese edition of the journey of the Governor of Macau by land and sea from Goa to China in order to assume his administrative duties as colonial official. The narrative is written by his assistant Velez Guerreiro, and describes their journey across India, Indo-China and China and their involvement in a coup d’état in the Malay Peninsula. This edition used Chinese printing methods that were adopted by the Lisbon printers for the 1732 edition. [Information from Livraria Castro e Silva.]
