My Apologies, I was not aware of that history - I shall be more careful in the future, to check the veracity of my sources. And, I like the bold use of text for documented, wherein we are presuming that such has not actually occurred. I can already see the issues that would need to be sorted out in attempting such thesis work; one of which would have to related to the modern understanding of the subtropical/hybrid model and that comparison to the truer deep layer tropical model, then applied to (as you intimated) mountains of old data... It may just be that these are more common across history - but then again, one would think that the stunning symmetry and gorgeous structure of the cyclone that struck Brazil last year, would have been noted before... There from, there is a question: Was that the first documented case of a system with "that" kind of structure - or is the answer to this question to subjective for a perfunctory review.. ?
In the mean time, the point "might" still stand that the frequency of these occurrences are definitely increasing ; agreed, there is vast potential for multiple disciplinary research facets and particularly, the increased frequency with GW is a growing concern for all oceanic basins.
