quedamos atento a cualquier ayuda que pueda necesitar,
On March 20, 2013 Christie's will dedicate an auction to the book collection of Isidoro Fernández (born 1878 in Galicia – died 1963 in Barcelona). Isidoro was an avid bibliophile, but also a businessman, a husband and a father to eight children. After he passed away, his library of Spanish and French books was passed down the family line. The Spanish collection is particularly varied, with over 400 lots ranging from extremely rare 16th travel books to more modern 20th century novels; it includes also picaresque novels, histories including accounts of Moorish uprisings and oppression in Catalonia, early anthologies, collections of maxims or sayings, works by or in praise of women, and early Castilian translations all from a key part. Antonio Palau y Dulcet, in his Memòries d’un llibreter català (Barcelona, 1935), refers to Isidoro affectionately as ‘Fernández, alies El Bilbai’, and mentions how his friend progressed from being a mere collector of magazines to the status of ‘un bibliòfil enragé’. It was probably from Palau himself that Isidoro learned his love of French books, many of which were collected in the twenties, while the majority of his Spanish books were bought in the thirties and forties.
