BIBLIOGRAPHICAL NOTES

General and Introductory

All English readers approaching the study of the first Portuguese empire must rely on certain basic introductory works. Of these certainly the most important is C.R.Boxer, The Portuguese Seaborne Empire (London, 1969). This book examines various topics but does not seek to give a chronological account of developments. Covering the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries in some detail, and with a broadly chronological framework, is B.Diffie and G.Winius, Foundations of the Portuguese Empire 1415–1580 (Oxford, 1977).
