Modesto Texidor Torres: "Capitanía del Puerto de Barcelona"

I have bought a page from La Ilustracion. There is no date, but it appears to be from 1890/1. On this page is an engraved copy of Modesto Texidor's 'Capitanía del Puerto de Barcelona' ('Captaincy of the Port of Barcelona'), which was exhibiting at the National Exposition of Fine Arts in 1890 (along with others, including his father, José Texidor Busquets (with 'San Hilario Sacalm'), Emilio Sala and Modesto Urgell [source La Dinastía, No. 3635, Barcelona, 6/May/1890]).
