About this Item

Manolete, by Jose Luis de Cordoba and Rafael Gago, Imprenta Provincal Cordoba, 1943, Book condition very good, soft cover, no dust jacket, inside pages slightly yellowed but no markings. With a Prologue by the great bullfighter Machaquito. Numerous B & W photographs within including Manolito and Machaquito dressed in the traditional bullfighting attire. Famous for the intense expression in his eyes, photos show Manolito looking at the bull as he speaks or shouts, possibly luring the bull. This rare book superbly captures the focused qualities which made Manolete the greatest bullfighter of all time.Born Manuel Laureano Rodriguez Sanchez (1917-1947), the famous Spanish bullfighter Manolete is considered by many to be the greatest bullfighter of all time. Rising to prominence after the Spanish Civil War, his style was said to be sober and serious with few concessions to the gallery. On August 28, 1947, Manolete died following a goring to the upper leg which he received from the Miura bull Islero. A rare book that's now a collectors item. Bookseller Inventory # 000129
