Very rare survival: a poem in twenty-four stanzas each of five lines devoted to the celebration of animals and plants, dedicated to the Madrid Society for the protection of nature, and publicly read by the actress Carolina Civili on the occasion of the May 1879 exhibition of plants and birds. This copy was inscribed by the author, a prominent essayist and publicist, for a young Francisco Javier Ugarte Pagés, whose commitment to public life would come to full fruition within the government of Maria Cristina.
OCLC finds a single copy, at the National Library of Spain; not on Library Hub.

Divided into two parts, the collection contains 28 sonnets, each with accompanying notes, on subjects including the theatre, games, women, friendship, carriages, satire, coffee, marriage, balls, French taste, titles, and youth, with three additional sonnets at the end, two drawing on Aesop’s fable of the frog and the ox, and one on fashion.
