A rare Lorca manuscript is auctioned in Paris

Mora Guarnido, who stayed the rest of his life in Uruguay, where he was consul during the Second Spanish Republic, is also one of Lorca’s first biographers; hence also the importance of this document.

The poem, “Romance of the moon, moon“, is headed with a dedication that reads:”For a dear old comrade“, and also accompanied by several drawings in blue and red, a moon and a man with a hat that, according to the curator, would be the representation of a gypsy.

Lorca also signed it by writing his initials with his characteristic elongated line.

Upon the death of Mora Guarnido, he bequeathed his library to a Uruguayan friend, professor, Alcides Giraldi, which he kept in a safe place, sold today by his descendants.

Since the 1980s, we only have evidence of a dozen Lorca’s manuscripts and letters that have been sold at auction. The particularity of this is also that it is a gift to a friend from youth“De Fougerolle added.
