Editorial Barcino is a that specialises in publishing Catalan texts, from its origins to the 20th century. Its collections include critical editions, annotated editions and translations into several languages. Barcino’s most historical collection is Els Nostres Clàssics, founded, along with the publishing house, in 1924 by Josep Maria de Casacuberta.
This collection currently has two series: Medieval Authors, for works written up to the seventeenth century, and Modern Authors, for titles dating from the sixteenth to the early nineteenth century. In addition to this collection, we should mention Biblioteca Verdagueriana, for unpublished texts by Jacint Verdaguer and studies on his work; Biblioteca Barcino, for annotated texts and in normative spelling, or Tast de Clàssics, for adaptations of old works into Modern Catalan.
As for translations, Barcino has established co-edition agreements to publish old Catalan texts in English with Tamesis Books and in German with LITVerlag.
