WORK:

‘Considered one of the first and most comprehensive artistic guides of a monument and its collections in Modern Europe, its publishing success and dissemination constitute a unique case in the history of artistic literature, showing a constant national and international interest for the Royal Monastery since its construction.’ (Vega-Loeches)

Most engravings by Pedro de Villafranca. The plates are by Pedro de Villafranca, and are the same as in the 1st edition of the Imprenta Real of 1657.


CONDITION:

Complete work.

12+163 folios.
9 fold-outs and 2 illustrations.

This book is hard-to-find complete.

Work in relatively good condition, but with some problems. Some stains, some 18th-century annotations, some folds but all as normal for the paper quality. All major book edges and lagoons have recently been restored with high-quality Japanese paper (sekishu-shi and kawanaka).

The illustrations show an old poor repair using adhesive tape with inadequate pH, which acidified the paper over time. The new tears have been repaired with methylcellulose (with a suitable pH) and Japanese paper (see photos).
