The Lynx Editions Publishing house was created in 1989 by Sr. Ramon Mascort (founder and president of the Mascort Foundation), together with the famous naturalist Jordi Sargatal and Dr. Josep del Hoyo (Director of the Publishing house since its creation).
This great project was born from the wish to publish what has now become a global reference in the study of ornithology – The Handbook of the birds of the World. It’s the first treaty in history that identifies and illustrates every bird species from across the world. It will be complemented this year by another book, The Handbook of the Mammals of the World, which lists for the first time, all the mammals of the World.
The exhibition presents some 150 boards, used to illustrate the two great works of LYNX editions, and highlights the exceptional heritage of the 17 volumes of ” the Handbook of the Birds of the World “(1992-2013)
The exhibition runs until April 13. The opening hours of the Mascort Foundation are as follows:
Saturday: 11h-13h30 and 16h30-20h
