Antonio de Sancha, 1720-1790: a tentative list of holdings in the reference division of the British Library

1983

Abstract

THE remarkable improvement in printing standards in eighteenth-century Spain is generally considered to have been due to the work of Joaquin Ibarra. However, an almost equal place must be accorded to his contemporary Antonio de Sancha, whose printing skills came to rival Ibarra's, and whose literary formation and enthusiasms possibly outstripped those of the latter. Certainly the enterprise - sometimes risky, but always courageous - Sancha showed in publishing large collections of historical, poetic, and scientific works has no equal in eighteenth-century Spain.
