Joachim Gomez de la Cortina, the future Marquis of Morante, was born in 1808 in Mexico. He was quickly sent to Spain by his father at the time when the unrest for the independence of the colony began. He completed his studies with distinction, obtaining two successive doctorates - in canon law and civil law - before becoming the rector of the prestigious Universitas Complutensis in Madrid, where he held various political and legal positions. He soon gave up all these responsibilities to devote himself to his true passion, which continued until his last breath: books, as shown by his motto “hora fallitur legendo”, which was affixed to the numerous works he gave to the most renowned Parisian workshops to bind.
