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. 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 in the finest dark purple morocco, adorned on the ordrs in gold and blind decoration, the spines titled and numbered in gold and with very rich and beautiful gold decorations in compartments, rich gold dentelles and edges. [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 French binding. 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, given to one of the most famous figures in military history, in gratitude for one of the most important military operations in European history.

Item Description: Chelsea: Chelsea, The Ashendene Press, 1927–28, 1927. 2 large folio volumes (430 × 308 mm). Publisher's full green morocco, spine in compartments with gilt titles direct. 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

AN IMPORTANT FIRST EDITION OF THIS HIGHLY REGARDED AND EARLY ENGLISH TRANSLATION. BEAUTIFULLY ILLUSTRATED WITH FINE FULL-PAGE ENGRAVINGS THROUGHOUT. An appealing set of Cervantes' magnificent and romantic tale. Jarvis' is one of the best-known and earliest translations into English. Its presentation, from the point of view of the quality of the art of the book is splendid. Very finely executed full page engravings, engraved head and tail pieces, and engraved capitals make for a creation of the highest order. There is a fine ‘Life of Cervantes’ preceding the text translated from the original Spanish and with an especially handsome engraving of Cervantes.

Thus, many of the period poetical nuances have here been included in English for the first time. Bookseller Inventory # 21569

Pemberton, 1757, to verso of each title-page (perhaps Henry Pemberton (1694–1771), editor of the third edition of Isaac Newton's Principia and author of A View of Sir I. Newton's Philosophy) and beneath it that of William Rooth. Lowndes 401. Gibson's Library, p. 91. Jervas (a printer's error resulted in "Jarvis") was an artist and art collector, but he also had literary ambitions, and with Alexander Pope (whose painting instructor he had been for some six months in 1713) he edited a version of Charles-Alphonse Du Fresnoy's De arte grafica. But his major literary undertaking was this English translation of Don Quixote to which also provided the first introduction and a critical analysis of previous translations. Published posthumously in 1742 and frequently reprinted, "it is generally acknowledged as being close in spirit to the original."

Item Description: Nonesuch Press, London, 1930. Nonesuch edition of Cervantes's great picaresque novel, limited to 1475 copies, with twenty-one color plates by E. McKnight Kauffer. Originally issued in two parts in 1605 and 1615, Don Quixote begins as a parody of chivalric romances, but expands to examine the whole of Spanish society through the adventures of the deluded Quixote and his long-suffering companion Sancho Panza. This edition follows the 1743 English translation of Motteux and Ozell: "A world of disorderly Notions, pick'd out of his Books, crouded into his Imagination; and now his Head was full of nothing but Inchantments, Quarrels, Battles, Challenges, Wounds, Complaints, Amours, Torments, and abundance of Stuff and Impossibilities." This copy is warmly inscribed by the illustrator, E. McKnight Kauffer: "for Roger Fry, without whose encouragement this book would not have been done -- E. McKnight Kauffer, 1930." The preeminent English art critic of his day, Fry was instrumental in promoting Kauffer's art through the Omega Workshops, the influential Bloomsbury design collective that Fry directed with Vanessa Bell and Duncan Grant; in 1925, Fry contributed the introduction to the printed catalogue of Kauffer's modernist posters. A near-fine copy of the most influential work of Spanish literature, with an important English art historical association. Two octavo volumes, original full tan niger morocco, raised bands, maroon spine labels lettered in gilt, top edges rough gilt, pages uncut. With twenty-one color illustrations by E. McKnight Kauffer throughout text. Presentation inscription from Kauffer to Roger Fry on limitation page. Rubbing to spine ends and corners, boards lightly mottled. Bookseller Inventory # 1001013

Item Description: J. and R. Tonson and S. Draper, London, 1756. Folios, 2 volumes. Bound in half leather over marbled boards, gilt titles to the spine. Illustrated with frontispiece and 68 consecutive numbered plates, engraved by Gerhard Vandergucht. In near fine condition. Translated by Charles Jarvis. An excellent set. 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 # 3220

Es considerado una de las máximas figuras de la literatura española y universalmente conocido por haber escrito Don Quijote de la Mancha, que muchos críticos han descrito como la primera novela moderna y una de las mejores obras de la literatura universal. Se le ha dado el sobrenombre de «Príncipe de los Ingenios». Cervantes es sumamente original. Parodiando un género que empezaba a periclitar, como el de los libros de caballerías, creó otro género sumamente vivaz, la novela polifónica, donde se superponen las cosmovisiones y los puntos de vista hasta confundirse en complejidad con la misma realidad, recurriendo incluso a juegos metaficcionales. En la época la épica podía escribirse también en prosa, y con el precedente en el teatro del poco respeto a los modelos clásicos de Lope de Vega, le cupo a él en suma fraguar la fórmula del realismo en la narrativa tal y como había sido preanunciada en España por toda una tradición literaria desde el Cantar del Mío Cid, ofreciéndosela a Europa, donde Cervantes tuvo más discípulos que en España. La novela realista entera del siglo XIX está marcada por este magisterio. Por otra parte, otra gran obra maestra de Cervantes, las Novelas ejemplares, demuestra la amplitud de miras de su espíritu y su deseo de experimentar con las estructuras narrativas. En esta colección de novelas el autor experimenta con la novela bizantina (La española inglesa), la novela policíaca o criminal (La fuerza de la sangre, El celoso extremeño), el diálogo lucianesco (El coloquio de los perros), la miscelánea de sentencias y donaires (El licenciado Vidriera), la novela picaresca (Rinconete y Cortadillo), la narración constituida sobre una anagnórisis (La gitanilla), etc. Es la novela cumbre de la literatura en lengua española. Su primera parte apareció en 1605 y obtuvo una gran acogida pública. Pronto se tradujo a las principales lenguas europeas y es una de las obras con más traducciones del mundo. En un principio, la pretensión de Cervantes fue combatir el auge que habían alcanzado los libros de caballerías, satirizándolos con la historia de un hidalgo manchego que perdió la cordura por leerlos, creyéndose caballero andante. Para Cervantes, el estilo de las novelas de caballerías era pésimo, y las historias que contaba eran disparatadas. A pesar de ello, a medida que iba avanzando el propósito inicial fue superado, y llegó a construir una obra que reflejaba la sociedad de su tiempo y el comportamiento humano. Es probable que Cervantes se inspirara en el Entremés de los romances, en el que un labrador pierde el juicio por su afición a los héroes del Romancero viejo. Size: 12x17cm.

Item Description: Edinburgh John Grant 1908, 1908. 4 volumes. First Edition Thus, Grant's fine printing of 1908. With Provenance. Richly illustrated throughout with 37 engravings designed and etched by Ad. Lalauze on tissue-guarded plates, including a fine engraved portrait of Cervantes at the beginning of Volume I. Title pages printed in red and black. Tall, thick 8vo, in very fine contemporary three-quarter chocolate brown morocco over brown cloth, the back and corner pieces gilt ruled, the spines beautifully gilt tooled in a morning glory motif in compartments separated by finely gilt tooled raised bands, two compartments gilt lettered, fine marbled endpapers, a.e.g. These impressive bindings were no doubt custom made for Sir James Liege Hulett, South African sugar magnate and noted philanthropist, whose engraved armorial plates are affixed to the front endpapers xlii, 445; x, 484; xii, 512; xii, 508 pp. A very handsome set, the fine bindings remarkably free of wear of evidence of use, the text very fine but for the lightest of inevitable spotting which only occasionally appears and is primarily confined to the prelims. A FINE AND HANDSOME SET WITH EXCELLENT ACADEMIC INCLUSIONS. A beautiful set of Cervantes and a very scarce edition edited by J.G. Lockhart who also wrote the included essay on the Life of Cervantes. Motteux’s translation is one of the most famous of the period, and here, the book is presented in lovely style. There is a fine ‘Life of Cervantes’ preceding the text and in addition, important and very copious notes on the text are appended. The content of the notes is of significant interest to the reader as they have been taken from the most important and scholarly editions prepared by Bowle, Pellicer and the Academy. In addition, significant content was gained from researching the old histories and chronicles with which the Spaniards of the 16th century were familiar. Thus, many of the period poetical nuances have here been included in English for the first time. Blackwood’s said of the translation that "This is, we think, out of all sight, the richest and the best. . Motteux, the translator of Cervantes and Rabelais, possesses a native humour which no other translator that we ever met with has approached." And William Prescott said that "The most popular versions in English are those of Motteux, Jarvis, and Smollett. Perhaps the first is the best of all. It was by a Frenchman who came over to England in the time of James the Second. It betrays nothing of its foreign parentage, however, while its rich and racy diction, and its quaint turns of expression, are admirably suited to convey a lively and very faithful image of the original. The slight tinge of antiquity, which belongs to the time, is not displeasing, and comports well with the tone of knightly dignity which distinguishes the hero." Miscellanies, 1845.

Item Description: Berlin, Johann Friedrich Unger, 1799-1801., 1801. Erste Ausgabe der epochemachenden Übersetzung, sehr selten. „Für das Selbstverständnis der Romantik war Tiecks ‚Don Quijote‘-Übersetzung ein . paradigmatischer Text"; Cervantes wurde neben Dante und Shakespeare zu den eigentlich romantischen Dichtern gezählt. „Obwohl Tiecks sprachliche Kenntnisse dieser äußerst schwierigen Aufgabe kaum gewachsen waren, ist es unübersehbar, daß seine stellenweise freie oder ungenaue Übertragung den Stil und die Musikalität des Originals erstaunlich gut wiedergegeben hat, und sie daher, nicht nur ihres berühmten Übersetzers wegen, die bis heute maßgebliche Übertragung ins Deutsche geblieben ist" (Paulin, Metzler, S. 56). Thomas Mann: „Wie Tiecks Übersetzung, dieses heiter und reich gebildete Deutsch der klassisch-romantischen Zeit, unsere Sprache auf ihrer glücklichsten Stufe, mich entzückt, kann ich nicht sagen." Sie sorgte für die weite Verbreitung Cervantes‘ in Deutschland, machte den Don Quixote im 19. Jahrhundert in Deutschland populär und erlebte mehrere Auflagen. – Exlibris. Band 1 papierbedingt etwas stockfleckig, die Bände 2-4 in der Vorzugsausgabe auf starkem, sauberem Velinpapier. – Goed. VI 37, 51. Bookseller Inventory # 21301
