Item Description: Printed by Richard Hodgkinsonne, for Andrew Crooke, at the Green Dragon in Pauls Churchyard, London, 1652. Second Edition. Second complete edition in English and the first edition of both parts issued together. Translated by Thomas Shelton. Folio (286 x 189 mm), collation: [8], 137, [5], 138-214, 216-244, 244-273. Lacking final leaf (provided in manuscript facsimile) and final blank. Variant title page lacks Andrew Crooke's address, priority between the two, if any, is unknown. Additional printed title to Second Part. Modern binding in full leather to style. Engraved title to first part soiled and with inner margin extended. Some marginal worming and dampstaining, a few contemporary marginal notes and the occasional tear, but all text legible. "One of those universal works which are read by all ages at all times." (PMM 111) Published in two volumes a decade apart (in 1605 and 1615), Don Quixote is the most influential work of literature to emerge from the Spanish Golden Age and the entire Spanish literary canon. As a founding work of Western literature, it is often cited as the first modern novel. The Shelton translation is generally considered the English translation that "realizes Cervantes' manner more nearly than any successor." (DNB) Grolier, Langland to Wither, 213. Pforzheimer 140.

Item Description: R. Scot, T. Basset, J. Wright, R. Chiswell/Richard Hogkinson, London. 1675, 1672., 1675. Third edition. The first part was originally published in 1612 and the second in 1620; reprinted in 1652. Folio. pp [viii], 137, [v], 273. Full leather with what appears to be a nineteenth-century rebacking of eighteenth-century boards, raised bands lettered in gilt. Endpapers renewed. Thomas Shelton's translation is not only the first in English but also the first into any language. The first part, translated from the Brussels edition of 1607, appeared when Cervantes was still alive. There has been some speculation that Shelton may have known Cervantes but this is impossible to prove. Shelton's translation was until Motteux's translation of 1700 the most popular and still has its admirers, among them Samuel Putnam who produced one of the best translations of recent times.Two early ownership signatures on the title-page one of which has been rubbed away with some light damage to the paper. With the finely engraved bookplate on the front pastedown of Allan Heywood Bright (1862-1941) who was a Liberal politician, author of several books on Middle English literature and a great bibliophile. Tipped onto the front free endpaper is a short essay, presumably in his hand, "Don Quixote revived in the person of Ignatius Loyola".Covers rubbed. Some spotting to prelims and last pages. Very good.

Item Description: Por El Coronel Francisco López Fabra, Imp. Pablo Riera. 1871 - 1873; 1874; 1879., Barcelona., 1871. 4 vols. Large 8vo. (282 x 210 mm). Facsimile: Each vol. with half-title in green and justification leaves, vol. I with 332 leaves printed recto and verso with facsimile of Part I of Don Quixote (1605), vol. 2 with 292 leaves printed recto and verso with facsimile of Part II of Don Quixote (1615); Notes: pp. viii, 202 and with 10 issues of the 'Boletin de la Reproduction Foto-Tipografica de la Primera Edicion . &c.' bound in at rear of vol.; Iconography: Half-title, printed title, leaf with Fabra's dedication, leaf with prologue, 101 leaves with mounted plates on chine and 4 leaves with additional bibliographic detail. Later blue half-morocco by René Kieffer with his stamp to front free endpapers verso, marbled boards and endpapers, banded spines with gilt titles in six compartments, t.e.g. others uncut, original publisher's wrappers preserved. A good copy of the facsimile of the first editions of both parts of Cervantes' Don Quixote together with the additional volumes of notes and iconography. From the edition limited to 2,605 numbered copies on 'papel de Capellades D. Santiago Serra'. Produced from the copies of the first editions of both parts of Don Quixote (Part I published in Madrid in 1605, Part II in 1615) from Madrid's Biblioteca Nacional, this facsimile edition was published in a series of 26 parts. The edition was printed 'en facsímile por la fototipografía, y publicada por su inventor el coronel Don Francisco López Fabra, bajo los auspicios de una Asociación Propagadora de la que son preseidente el excmo. Sr. D. Juan Hartzenbusch, autor de las notas de esta edición, y secretario el Sr. D. Carlos Frontaura'. The first two volumes contain the facsimiles - apparently the first facsimile produced using a lithographic technique - of the first edition of each part of Don Quixote. The third volume presents a series of notes on the text by Juan Eugenio Hartzenbusch (as indicated there are 1,633 notes) giving details of variants and corrections, as well as textual analysis; the volume concludes with Hartzenbusch's contextual essay 'Cervántes y Lope en 1605: Citas y aplicaciones relativas à estos dos esclarecidos ingenios' and the ten issues of the 'Boletines' giving details of the publication history and subscribers. Volume IV, the 'Iconografia de Don Quijote' presents bibliographic details of 60 editions of Don Quixote with 101 tipped-in illustration taken from the relevant work. The editions inlude 15 printed in Madrid, 23 in Paris, 11 in London, 3 in Barcelona, and one each from Boston, Brussells, Copenhagen, The Hague, Leipzig, Prague, Tours and Venice. 'What had begun as a simple satire on the tedious chivalric romances of the time broadened into a sweeping panorama of Spanish society; and it was this, the variety, the liveliness, and the gibes at the famous, which won it instant fame. Its larger claims, the subdues pathos, its universal humanity, were slower to be appreciated . Don Quixote is one of those universal works which are read by all ages at all times, and there are very few who have not at one time or another felt themselves to be Don Quixote confronting the windmills or Sancho Panza at the inn.' (PMM). Although this facsimile and the subsequent volumes were published in a relatively large edition, the work is rare in commerce: examination of the subscribers' list in the 'Boletines' indicates that a large part of the edition was destined for academic institutions and the remainder for subscribers in Spain (particularly in Madrid and Barcelona). The only subscribers outside Spain (apart from Portuguese or Spanish-speaking countries) are two copies destined for Frankfurt and 30 copies for the bookseller Bernard Quaritch 'para diversas Bibliotecas de Europa'.

Item Description: 1742. CERVANTES DE SAAVEDRA, Miguel. THE LIFE AND EXPLOITS OF THEM INGENIOUS GENTLEMAN DON QUIXOTE DE LA MANCHA. Translated from the Original Spanish by Charles Jarvis, Esq; London, J. & R. Tonson and R. Dodsley, 1742. Two quarto volumes. (i)-(xxiv)(8)(xxv)-xxxii,(i)-(viii)90,(14)355 pp.; i- xii,388 pp. Second issue, with "Supplement to the Translator's Preface," on the origin of books of chivalry, by Wiliam Warburton, inserted after I.xxiv. Illustrated with a portrait of Cervantes and 68 copperplate illustrations, drawn by John Vanderbank and engraved by Gerard Vander Gucht, from a Spanish-language Tonson edition of 1738 (Lord Carteret's edition - the first deluxe edition ever printed, and the first edition in Spanish published in England) with new page labels. Vanderbank, a popular portraitist, 37 of whose works are in the National Portrait Gallery, studied with Godfrey Kneller. The choice of a portraitist becomes clear in the "Advertisement concerning the Prints," where John Oldfield explains the restrained aesthetic, hinging on facial expression rather than action, which went into their planning. The portrait of Cervantes by G. Kent, engraved by George Vertue, is opposite the first page of the 90-page "Life of Michael de Cervantes Saavedra" (dated 1738) in Volume I. Ten engraved headpieces and initials. Text and illustrations are clean but for some occasional light foxing or soiling. Recently bound to period in quarter calf, with gilt rules and red and green labels on spine, and marbled paper boards. This is a handsome copy of a lavishly illustrated edition of the Spanish classic. $3750.00. Bookseller Inventory # 84455
