The work describes the Lonja de la Seda, built in Valencia in the Gothic style between 1482 and 1498 by the architect Pere Compte, to serve as a silk exchange and to house the city's other commercial activities. The building is a five-bay aisled hall, with eight twisted columns, elaborate vault rib mouldings and a frieze incorporating a Latin inscription.

The plates are captioned and show: [1] Casa Lonja (Fachada principal, Planta, Seccion); [2, 3] (Detalles De La) Casa Lonja.

The decorated initial on p.1 is printed in full color.
Responsibility NoteAll plates are signed by their draughtsman, R.M. Jimenez, and engraver, E. Stüler.

Each plate carries the name of the printer, the Calcografía De La Imprenta Nacional.

The title-page vignette is signed as drawn by F. Madrazo and engraved by D. Martinez; the headpiece as engraved by Maura; the decorated initial is unsigned.
