Don Juan de Borbón, Conde de Barcelona. Cacerías de perdices en España, 1976-1991. Diarios del Conde de los Gaitanes

During his extensive career as a red-legged partridge hunter, Luis de Ussía, Count of Los Gaitanes, kept detailed hunting diaries in which he summarized the characteristics of the day and closed with his accurate assessment of how it had gone. Between 1976 and 1991, the Count of Barcelona, Juan de Borbón, another great partridge shooter, regularly participated in the same hunts, which Ussía duly noted in his diary.

Don Juan de Borbón, Conde de Barcelona. Cacerías de perdices en España, 1976-1991, compiles the pages from the diaries of the Count of Los Gaitanes where Juan de Borbón appears with his rifle in the company of other great hunters.

 Therefore, it is the hunting diary not just of Luis de Ussía but also of Juan de Borbón, and a broad yet precise look at partridge hunting in Spain during the late 1970’s and early 1980’s, in which many will remember themselves, rifle slung over their shoulders, watchful of the sudden flight of a bird.

The book was edited and its prologue written by Alfonso Ussía. It is richly illustrated with drawings by BARCA, and it closes with epilogues by José María Torrego and Íñigo Moreno de Arteaga, Marquis of Laserna. In addition to facsimile reproductions of the diaries of the Count of Los Gaitanes, the book also includes indexes by names, weapons and hunting grounds.
