Description:

A very early issue of this wonderfully illustrated Cervantes. With 118 spectacular illustrations by by Gustave Doré. Royal 4to (12 x 9 inches approx.), in a very fine, English binding of deluxe dark green morocco, the covers ornately framed in gilt featuring thick beautifully roll-tooled band-, frame- and panel-work surrounded by multi-ruled gilt lines with small rosette corners gilt, inner ruled in blind and gilt, the spine very richly gilt decorated in compartments between wide gilt-ruled raised bands, the compartments feature fine and elaborate gilt panel work incorporated multiple tools, one compartment lettered in gilt, board edges gilt tooled, fine marbled endpapers and a.e.g. xxviii, 737 pp. A very handsome and sturdy copy, internally fresh with only a bit of very occasional minor spotting, much less then typically found, the binding is very strong and well preserved, beautiful and of fine craftsmanship. AN UNUSUALLY HANDSOME COPY. VERY SCARCE IN SUCH WELL PRESERVED CONDITION. Gustave Doré was one of the greatest illustrators of his day. His grand and magnificent style is a perfect complement for Cervantes heroic tale. This massive tome is one of our favorite printings of the Spanish classic and, because of the weight of the text block, is usually found broken and loose. This copy is as sturdy as one could hope for and is very handsome as well. A great compliment to any fine library and a must for the collector of 19th century illustrated books.

A tight and clean copy, the binding with a bit of age wear, the back sometime skillfully restored to style with the original spinal panel laid down. A HANDSOMELY BOUND COPY. Gustave Doré was one of the greatest illustrators of his day. He was born in Strassburg in 1832. In 1848, he moved to Paris where "his facility as a draughtsman was extraordinary." He was a prolific worker and his subjects were usually religious or historical. He died in January of 1883. His grand and magnificent style is a perfect complement for Cervantes heroic tale.
