The fe series only relates to known information in 1987 when the "Antonio de Torres" biography was published, by our late indefatigable colleague, Jose Romanillos. Several Torres guitars have come to light since then, including some with a duplicate number 35 from the Segunda Epoca, according to my colleague, Richard Brune, who knows that Julio Sagreras' Torres guitar had that duplicate number, as he wrote a Vintage Guitar magazine article, about that very guitar many years ago.
The photo of the Soundboard and Rosette from the 1858 Torres Guitar, fe8 are from the archive of Ricardo Muñoz, author of "Historia de la Guitarra" published in Buenos Aires in 1930. This is from page 91 from my book "ANNOTATIONS FOR THE HISTORY OF THE CLASSICAL GUITAR IN ARGENTINA" 1822-2000, 4 VOLS.: go to the bottom of the home page to get to the link to make a purchase of this 2,630 page book, that weighs 21 lbs. My book contains a complete set of actual size photos of this guitar, these photos may be the oldest photos ever taken of this instrument, but now there are color photos of this guitar in books, some of them out of print.
I have owned the award winning 1858 Torres Guitar photos since December 1999, preceding the color photos being published, and now out of print. That archive of Ricardo Muñoz contained: besides the 7 scrapbooks of the career of Ricardo Muñoz, over 650 rare photos, of guitars, guitarists from all over the world and autographed books, by Dionisio Aguado, etc. Almost all of these photos found their way into my 4 volume book, which has over 3,200 photos and images.
1865 This lone known 1865 guitar belonged to the Francisco Tarrega student, Daniel Fortea, who also owned a 1904 Enrique Garcia guitar among his collection of fine instruments. It was not known at the time of the Antonio de Torres Jose Romanillos biography published in 1987, from which all this data is drawn from.
