Tauromaquia completa, o sea el arte de torear en plaza, tanto a como a caballo; Escrita por el celebra Lidiador Francisco Montes, y dispuesta y corregida escrupulosamente por el editor. It will be accompanied by a historical apologetic discourse on the fiestas of the toros, and a third part in which the improvements that we must make are very special. Madrid, D. José Maria Repullés, 1836. In-12 (3 ff. -VI- 284 pp.), half red chagrin, spine with 4 nerves decorated with golden caissons (Binding at the time). Without the portrait (not included in most copies).
