Item Description: Madrid Don Joachin Ibarra 1780, 1780. 4 volumes. The First Ibarra Edition, the most revered and beautifully illustrated and printed pressing of the most treasured work in all of Spanish literature, a monument of Spanish typography. The edition chosen by the Fathers of Seville for presentation after the defeat of Napoleon by the English. The choice of this edition as a gift in thanks for rescuing Spain from Napoleon's onslaught is of the greatest importance and suggests the esteem in which the edition was held by the people of Spain. With an engraved portrait, engraved title pages in each volume, 31 fine engraved plates and 66 charming head- and tailpieces, and a large map with Quixote's peregrinations in the first volume. Large 4to, a splendid and very beautiful binding by the firm of Simier R. du Roi, binder to the king, in the finest dark purple goatskin, adorned in gold and blind decorations, the spines titled and numbered in gold and with very rich and beautiful gold decorations in compartments, rich gold dentelles and edges. Simier's "variety and and technique were superb; he had no superior and few rivals during his career" ( Ramsden's French Bookbinders 1789-1848 ). [iv], XIV, ccvviv, 199; [iv], 418; [ii], xiv, 306; [iv], 346. This is a superb example in the most wonderful state of preservation. A magnificent binding and the most beautiful Cervantes we have ever encountered. AN EXTRAORDINARY COPY OF THE FIRST IBARRA CERVANTES. PROFUSELY AND BEAUTIFULLY ILLUSTRATED THROUGHOUT WITH THE FINEST ENGRAVINGS. PERHAPS THE MOST BEAUTIFUL AND DESIRABLE SET AVAILABLE OF THE MAGNIFICENT IBARRA EDITION. The Ibarra Edition is "the finest edition of Don Quixote that has ever been printed" (D. B. Updike). Printed for the Royal Spanish Academy in Spanish-designed types, lavishly ornamented, and containing the Prologue of the Academy, the Life of Cervantes, and a Chronological Plan and Analysis of the book, this is not only the finest edition of Cervantes, but is also a monument of European fine printing. What results from the combination of edition and presentation is a remarkable historical artifact whose position in the annals of bibliophily is perhaps unequaled except by a handful of famous books. It boils down to this: the greatest imaginative work from the Spanish mind, in its most beautiful physical manifestation. Binder to the King, Simier's "variety and and technique were superb; he had no superior and few rivals during his career" ( Ramsden's French Bookbinders 1789-1848 ). This was the edition given to one of the most famous figures in military history, in gratitude for one of the most important military operations in European history. Bookseller Inventory # 25706

Item Description: Madrid: Don Joaquin Ibarra, 1780, 1780. 4 volumes, quarto (301 × 213 mm). Early 19th-century mottled sheep, decorative gilt spines, twin red morocco labels, gilt floral roll-tool border on sides, all edges gilt, marbled endpapers. Bookplates of the cotton manufacturer and economist Robert Hugh Greg (1795-1875) and Paul Wansbrough.

First edition of this superb printing of Cervantes's timeless masterpiece, one of the great monuments of Spanish typography. This is a fine large paper copy. The idea for an edition illustrated by the best Spanish artists of the day, members of the Academia de San Fernando, was conceived in 1773 by Vincente de los Ríos (1732-1779), soldier and Cervantista, and Francisco Antonio de Angulo, secretary of the Academia Real. Some 1600 copies of the work were printed, on special paper from the Guarro mill in Catalunya and with specially designed type cast from matrices made by Jerónimo Gil. The text is that of Juan de la Cuesta's 1605 second edition, which at the time was thought to be the first edition. Bookseller Inventory # 100459

Nicks to bands and corners, but a lovely set, internally fine and in excellent condition. Printed in red and black in Ptolemy type; text in double columns; border and initials designed by Louise Powell and cut on wood by W. M. Quick and Geo. H. Ford. First Ashendene edition, one of 225 copies on Batchelor paper, out of a total edition of 245 copies. "First appearance of Ptolemy type. Ashendene knight-in-armour paper taken as a single work Don-Quixote is the largest of the Ashendene books. It has an interesting alternative to Hewitt's drawn or printed initials, the successful but unrepeatable device of neo-Kelmscott initials, borders and opening words cut on wood from designs by Louise Powell. The new Ashendene type was imitated and adapted from the Geographia of Ptolemaeus, printed by Leonard Holle at Ulm in 1482. In two columns, with red used chiefly for headings and shoulder notes, decorated but not illustrated, this link with the Kelmscott past was an entirely successful venture" (Franklin, The Ashendene Press).

Item Description: Printed by Tho. Hodgkin, and are to be sold by John Newton, London, 1687. First edition of the first illustrated edition in English of Don Quixote. Folio, bound in full brown calf to period, raised bands, elaborately gilt-decorated spine, red morocco spine label. With copper-engraved frontispiece and eight copper-engraved plates, each bearing two images. From the library at Brandon on the James, the plantation home to the Harrisons in Virginia. Translated by John Phillips. In very good condition with all plates present. Some minor wear and a small paper repair to one page. An exceptional example of this rarity. Don Quixote tells the tale of a man so entranced by reading about the chivalrous romantic ideals touted in books that he decides to take up his sword and become a knight-errant himself, with the aims of defending the helpless and warding off the wicked. With his somewhat confused laborer-turned-squire, Sancho Panza, they roam the world together and have adventures that have haunted reader's imaginations for nearly four hundred years. Don Quixote is generally recognized as the first modern novel. Over those years, it has had an incredible influence on thousands of writers, from Dickens to Faulkner, who once said he reread it once a year, "just as some people read the Bible". Vladamir Nabokov is quoted as saying, "Don Quixote is greater today than he was in Cervantes's womb. [He] looms so wonderfully above the skyline of literature, a gaunt giant on a lean nag, that the book lives and will live through [his] sheer vitality. He stands for everything that is gentle, forlorn, pure, unselfish, and gallant. The parody has become a paragon.". Bookseller Inventory # 3872

Item Description: Printed by Richard Hodgkinsonne, for Andrew Crooke, London, 1652. Two works bound in one volume. Quarto, full brown leather, gilt tooling and titles to the spine, gilt device to the front and rear panel, raised bands. Bound with the first edition of Edmund Gayton's Pleasant Notes Upon Don Quixot, which was published in 1654. Three title pages (The History being divided in two parts) with woodcut devices, ornamental head- and tail-pieces, and large decorated initials. In very good condition with some toning to the text. The Pleasant Notes Upon Don Quixot was a commentary on Cervantes, with three early references to Shakespeare. Repeatedly Gayton departs from its subject to introduce colorful anecdotes of contemporary London. Shakespeare is named in a list of English writers on p. 21; on p. 95, Don Quixote is called "The Shakespeare of the Mancha." Don Quixote tells the tale of a man so entranced by reading about the chivalrous romantic ideals touted in books that he decides to take up his sword and become a knight-errant himself, with the aims of defending the helpless and warding off the wicked.

Item Description: 1866. 4to., in full red straight grain morooco, boards and spine richly gilt, all edges gilt. With 100 illustrations including a full-page frontispiece and 99 cuts in the text. A little spotting to first and last few leaves, otherwise a very good copy in a choice binding. First edition thus in what appears to be a publisher's deluxe binding. With a neat ink presentation inscription "Charles James Jessel May 1873. A present from Emile Merton". Charles Jessel was the son of the famous lawyer, Master of the Rolls, and MP Sir George Jessel. A scarce edition with Arthur Houghton's illustrations engraved by the Brothers Dalziel. The distinctive, angular signature of the Brothers Dalziel appended to wood-engraved illustrations from the 1840s onwards was readily recognised. Indeed, so widespread were the Dalziels’ work and influence during the two decades 1850 to 1870 that their name has become synonymous with Victorian engraving on wood, and one student of the period called the Sixties the ‘Dalziel Era’. As engravers, art directors and publishers, the Dalziels â€" George (1815-1902) and Edward (1817-1905) -worked with some of the nineteenth century’s greatest talent in art and literature. The roll of the illustrators whose work they engraved is a distinguished one: George Cruikshank, Richard (‘Dicky’) Doyle, Birket Foster, John Gilbert, Charles Green, William Harvey, Arthur Boyd Houghton, Arthur Hughes and Charles Keene among them. The Dalziels became arbiters of taste, and during the 1850s and 1860s publishers turned to them for advice and guidance when venturing into illustrative literature. Bookseller Inventory # 2091312
