A Forgotten Empire: Vijayanagar; A Contribution to the History of India 

by Robert Sewell 

Preface 

The two Portuguese chronicles, a translation of which into English
is now for the first time offered to the public, are contained in
a vellum-bound folio volume in the Bibliotheque Nationale in Paris,
amongst the manuscripts of which institution it bears the designation
"PORT.  NO.  65." The volume in question consists of copies of four
original documents; the first two, written by Fernao Nuniz and Domingo
Paes, being those translated below, the last two (at the end of the
MS.) letters written from China about the year 1520 A.D.  These will
probably be published in translation by Mr.  Donald Ferguson in the
pages of the INDIAN ANTIQUARY.
