Scarce. Castlemaine was asked by Charles II to keep him informed of events in Europe whilst making a tour. Castelmaine reported to the King by letter on the war in Crete between the Venetians and the Turks. On his return to London, Castlemaine received permission to write the present book based upon that letter. It became a primary work on the conflict and was translated into Dutch and German.
