About Librería y Editorial Renacimiento
El fondo se incrementó notablemente con la compra, en 1995, de la librería neoyorquina de Eliseo Torres, de más de un millón de volúmenes (literatura española e hispanoamericana, crítica literaria, exilio español, historia, arte, Galicia, etc.). Tras esta compra, aunque se mantiene la tienda sevillana en Mateos Gago, 27, el almacén de la librería se traslada a una nave industrial de las afueras.
