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.
