History:

Spanish writer, dramatist and philologist. Son of a German cabinetmaker that was married with a Spanish woman.

He was an academic of the Royal Spanish Academy and Director of the National Library. He contributed to the edition of the Library of Spanish Authors and made an edition of the Quixote as well as the preparation of lots of notes for a second edition. For this reason, he asked the General Archive of Simancas for a substantial list of documents of Cervantes. In 1867 the official of the archive, Atanasio Tomillo, remitted him a hand-written relation that contained a sum of 48 documents, copied in their entirety, to which it was attached the calque used to copy the autographs, making possible the knowledge and diffusion of the truly handwriting of Cervantes. In addition, he is known because he was the author of “Los Amantes de Teruel”.
