Summary Note

There is no title-page (in the Royal Academy's copy). Our title is the caption-title of the text. Some copies have bound in the paper cover, which carries the title, 'Monumentos Arquitectónicos De España. Publicados de Rl. Orden y por disposicion del Ministerio de Fomento. Cuaderno No. Madrid Imprenta y calcografia nacional.'

The text is printed in Spanish and French in parallel.

The plates are captioned, and show: [1] 'Torres Del Convento De Santo Domingo ...' (Ogival style); [2] 'Torre De San Esteban ...' (Romanesque style); [3] 'Zocalos ... Torre De Sto. Domingo ...' (Mudejar style); [4 and 9-11] 'Iglesia Parroquial De S. Millan' (Romanesque style); [5] 'Iglesia Del Convento De Religiosas Del Corpus Christi' (Mudejar style); [6-8] 'Absides (Fachada Lateral, Planta Y Detalles) De La Iglesia De San Lorenzo' (Romanesque style); [12, 13] '... Iglesia Parroquial De San Martin' (Romanesque style). In-text illustrations consist of a headpiece (showing a portico of S. Lorenzo) and a decorated initial.

Plate [5] is lithographed; the decorated initial is printed in color.
