Royal Fêtes in Barcelona Illustrated With 20 Plates

[BARCELONA FÊTES] Anonymous. Collection of nine pamphlets celebrating royal entries into Barcelona. Barcelona, 1783,1802,1827.

Rare, illustrated collection of nine ephemeral fête programs documenting three generations of royal entries into Barcelona: Charles III in 1783, his son Charles IV in 1802, and grandson Ferdinand VII in 1827. This group of pamphlets affords a comparison between royal entries staged before and after the French occupation of Catalonia (1808-1823).
