About this Item

This little masterpiece gives perhaps the best sketch of Spanish low-life that has come down to us. The book has been translated from the Spanish with an introduction and notes by Mariano J. Lorente with a preface by R. B. Cunninghame Graham. Riconete and Cortadillo is more intimate than even Lazarillo de Tormes, truer to nature than Guzman de Alfarache and.and I suppose because Cervantes says so, that it is exemplary. " There are hours of recreation in which the affected spirit rests" to quote Cervantes.Certainly Rinconete and Cortadillo is a work of recreation, and the affected spirit of reading it may rest and smile at the humor it contains. book is as new unread, flawless, which is amazing for a book printed almost one-hundred years ago. There are eight fine plates by Atalana. Book has a hand made binding by Pat Magarick with a beautiful bluebell and vine paper over boards, spine is quarter bound in green Moroccan with gilt lettering and four fine raised bands. Corner tips are also bound in fine green Moroccan. paste-downs and first free and last free end papers are of the same paper as the cover. The book is housed in a custom slipcase with a leather label with gilt lettering on the front. A truly spectacular collectible and a treasure for any library. Bookseller Inventory # 000930
