Carlos Ballesta López, a bibliophile

Dr.CarlosBallestaLópez is one of the most notable Spanish bibliophiles on the Morisco theme. His collection of books was only known in amateur or booklover circles. It has only been after the creation of the Carlos Ballesta López Foundation that the bibliographic treasures, he has so enthusiastically collected, have seen the light. Because of this and until recently, this hobby, which has obtains such remarkable achievements, was one of the least known aspects of his personality.
