Book Description: Imprenta de Manuel Tello, Madrid, 1885. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good+. First Edition; First Printing. 8vo. xii & 623 pages; Contemporary red pebbled half morocco over marbled-paper-covered boards, raised bands on the spine, title and author lettered in gilt directly in the second and fourth panels, top edges gilt, marbled endpapers. This index is still useful and much cited. It was prepared by the Boston-based scholar Charles F. Bradford as an exhaustive index to the influential edition of Cervantes great novel 'Don Quixote' made by Diego Clemencín (1765-1834). [El Ingenioso Hidalgo Don Quixote, Comentado por Don Diego Clemencin. Madrid : 1833-9]. This was well worthy of many years of Charles Bradford's attention; Henry Edward Watts (in his own renowned edition of Cervabtes) said of this famous edition of Quixote: "This is the famous edition of Clemencin, with a commentary more full, minute, and elaborate than any of which Don Quixote has ever been the object. Perhaps no book, ancientor modern, has been dissected, analysed, criticised, and illustrated with so free a hand, and, on the whole, with so much industry, patience, and learning as Don Quixote has been by Senior Clemencin." Watts also assesses the present work: "An index to Clemencin's notes, by Mr. Charles F. Bradford,of Boston, was published at Madrid in 1885, and forms an indispensable addition to these six volumes, with which it is a pity it was not printed uniformly." This copy of Bradford's extensive work has an inscription neatly written in ink on the first front blank leaf: "T. R. Sullivan from Mrs. Charles F. Bradford." This is in the hand of the recipient, Thomas Russell Sullivan (1849-1916) - a Boston dramatist and novelist. Sullivan published a first novel in the same year as Bradford's index appeared - ['Roses of Shadow' 1885]. But he achieved more fame as a dramatist. Today, it must be admitted that his greatest fame in that department depended on a succès de scandale. Richard Mansfield, an Amerian actor, suggested that Sullivan adapt Robert Louis Stevensonís latest bestseller, 'The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.' Mansfield would take on the dual title role himself. After a succesful Boston opening, Sullivan's production traveled to New York in September and to London the following year. In London, the show opened just days before the first of five horrific murders in Londonís Whitechapel district. More than one member of the London audience, under the spell of Richard Mansfield histrionic skills, went to the Metropolitan police to suggest that Mansfield must really be the killer, who came to be known as "Jack the Ripper." The London production closed early. Sullivan went on to a career as a playwright and man of letters in Boston. He became a trustee of the Boston Athenaeum in 1909, the same year as he recorded the presentation of this volume from Mrs. Bradford. There are two noteworthy bookplates facing one another on the marbled front endpapers of this volume. One is Thomas Russell Sullivan's pictorial bookplate on the free-endpaper. The other is an interesting mounted albumen photographic-bookplate which displays a medal presented to Charles F. Bradford by the Royal Academy of Spain. We do not know whether this was Charles F. Bradford's own bookplate, or a plate designed for presentation copies of his major work of scholarship. Also, the later signature of the noted Hispanist Stuart M. Gross appears below Sullivan's inscription. Solid and handsome, but with minor rubbing to the hinges and corners of the binding, and a distinct mark of sunning to the marbled paper covering the front board. Longfellow completeists should note that among the (printed) letters of commendation at the end of the Appendix to Bradford for this work is a full page letter from Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (in Spanish).
