Dir.: D. Alfredo Opisso. Luxuriously produced Catalan graphically illustrated weekly, in quality comparable to 'London Illustrated News'. With numerous woodengravings, also full-and double page; from 1890 onwards some illustrations in colour. Vols. 1-3 & 10 are repaired or rebacked, bindings slightly stained. After a careful collation we found 2 pages torn out, 2 plates lacking, and in 1 issue a few pages with minor lost of text. Vol. 10 includes the frontispiece in colour. Publication went on till 1898.
