Full Description

Folio. 74 + (6)pp, 34 photo plates, many photo text ills. Publisher’s boards, cloth spine. Binding and pages slightly bumped at lower outer corner, but a good copy otherwise.

Scarce monograph on Barcelona Cathedral jointly written by a Catalan architect, Francesc Rogent Pedrosa, and a Catalan Roman Catholic priest, and ardent Catalan nationalist, Gaieta Soler (their Christian names are given in French for the purposes of the present volume). In its present form the cathedral is mostly of early fourteenth century date and the volume provides a useful historical and architectural account of it, with good illustrations of all its surviving fourteenth-century features. A supplementary part which would have recorded the cathedral’s fifteenth century cloister and the new facade added to the cathedral in the late 1880s was never published. It should be noted that this book is sometimes catalogued, inaccurately, either under Pedrosa or under Soler.
