About this Item

xix, 219p., 7.75x11 inches, preface, foreword, appendix, illustrations, very good first edition stated in cloth and unclipped dj. There is some confusion over the 1970s-1980s Harcourt first editions. This book, like almost all HB&J books of the period states First Edition BCDE. Many believe (because there was an occasional book with First Edition ABCDE) that this indicates a second printing. It does not. The standard was to remove the First Edition slug from the press leaving the B. They tried with the A but that meant removing another slug of type. Any HB&J with First Edition stated will be a first printing as well. Bookseller Inventory # 153424

About this title


A fastidiously shaped series of lectures based on a chapter-by-chapter synopsis of the Spanish classic. Rejecting the common interpretation of Don Quixote as a warm satire, Nabokov perceives the work as a catalog of cruelty through which the gaunt knight passes. Edited and with a Preface by Fredson Bowers; photographs.
