Barcelona, Editorial Canosa 1929.
4to. 305+(1)pp, numerous photo ills. Publisher’s gold-stamped cloth, a little rubbed at head of spine. Roderick Gradidge’s copy (bookplate).
First Spanish-language edition of this excellent book, published three years after the death of Gaudí (an edition in Catalan had been published a year before). Ràfols was the first to publish a full monograph on the Barcelona architect and this tidily produced and well-illustrated book does him justice. It also features a chronology of events in Gaudí’s life and a detailed bibliography. A reprint was issued in 1960, but this original edition is scarce.
