Razas Humanas - Antonio J. Bastinos, editor and publisher


Antonio J. Bastinos was an editor and publisher of children's instruction books. From what I can find they are almost too numerous to mention.

His books were characterized by their many illustrations, many in color. Some other prints of marine life are on sale at the George Glazer Gallery.



Here is a partial list of Spanish titles and their English translation.

You can see most of them at Abebooks.com or at AbeBooks Spain.

There is a mention of his books in the Publisher's Weekly, August 19, 1893

"On the ground floor southwest in the SPANISH section will be found the book exhibits of Bailly-Ballière, of Madrid; Antonio J Bastino, of Barcelona, books for the young and educational books; Espasa & Co. and Montaner& Simon, who show some illustrated gift-books and specimens of binding, all tawdry and in very bad taste; and I. Roca and I. Tersol both of Barcelona. Most of the publications displayed are printed on poor paper and are generally specimens of bad bookmaking."
