[Anonymous] [Turkish wars].
Auszug, ettlicher Zeitungen, was sich zum Anfang, des yetzigen Turckenkriegs, an ettlichen orten, inn Ungern, verloffen und zugetragen, mit sampt Eroberung der Veste und Schols
One of three slightly differing issues printed by Zimmermann, with woodcut of fighting cavalry on title. Quite interesting news from June 1566: Arshan, Pasha of Ofen, a drinker and opium-smoker, had opened the siege of Palota. The imprint describes his escape after having been fooled by 400 peasants´ cars simulating an Imperial army. Suleyman the Magnificent had Arslan strangled in Harsany, in August 3. After Palota the Imperial forces regained Vessprim which had been held by the Turks since 1546. Simultaneously, Zrinyi defeated Sandshak Mohammed of Tirbala, his son and whole army causing Suleyman´s revenge and the siege of Szigeth. The Augsburg issues also contain an appendix of the re-ocuppation of Totis on July 21. Gollner, 1143, variant issue. Apponyi, Hungarica, 400.
