Petit traité descriptif des courses de taureaux

The Little Descriptive Treatise on Bullfights is one of Vicente Blasco's lesser-known books. It was published in France in 1925 for French fans. He guides us in the world of bullfighting, since its origins. He describes the arenas, the bullfighters and their gangs and of course ... bulls and bullfighting, their qualities, and tells us about the breeders, the most famous of his time.

This book allows us to appreciate all the mastery and talent of the Valencian writer, the most international.

This first issue is centered on the world of knights.
