Bestiality in Cádiz

Urquhart, The Pillars of Hercules, Or, A Narrative of Travels in Spain and Morocco in 1848: “I observed, on a placard, the two following signs of progress and civilization, in titles of new works: ‘The defender of the fair sex,’ and ‘The Ass, a beastly periodical.’ The words were ‘Il Burro, periodico bestial.” Re the faulty article: I’ll try and dig out the account of C19th Spain by an English-speaker which faithfully and with the utmost seriousness records all the joke names given him by his informant. This wouldn’t happen now, of course.
