Barcelona, per Carles Amoros, 1546 Written in the Catalan dialect. On the title-page there is the date of 1547, which circumstance seems to have led Brunet, who found copies in catalogues under one or other of these dates, to imagine that there were two distinct editions, although one and the same.

He died in 1460. His verses are harmonious, natural, and pleasing, pregnant with interesting truths and morał reflections. They are generally pervaded by that soft spirit of melancholy which is so often the favourite companion of the lyre. His poetry is the poetry of truth and wisdom. It has the condensation of proverbs and the force of philosophy. One listens to him as to an inspired prophet.”
