In the first half of the XVIIIth century, the Spanish booksellers supplied their shops with works bought to Flemish, French and Swiss booksellers. After the middle of that century, and especially during the sixties and seventies of the XVIIIth century, a notable number of booksellers and merchants, seated mainly in Mediterranean cities, established relations with printers of the republic of Venice. Between the Venetian printers, stood out the house Remondini, which managed to introduce in the Iberian Peninsula books, prints and papers painted with notable success. In this article, the author analyzes the commercial relation between Josep Bro, bookseller of Girona, and the house Remondini. This is a paradigmatic example of the nature of these links.
