The História Trágico-Marítima was first published in 1735/1736 by Bernardo Gomes de Brito, and consisted of two volumes with twelve narratives of shipwrecks and other maritime disasters. Mostly reprints of sixteenth and seventeenth century pamphlets, these narratives were an immediate success and triggered the edition of a third volume with another six accounts, clandestinely published by an anonymous printer that has never been identified.1
