About this Item: 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. Seller Inventory # 25706

About this Item: 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. A few scrapes to bindings. 4 engraved title pages, portrait of Cervantes, and 31 plates after Carnicero, Barranco, Brunette, Del Castillo, Ferro and Gil, engraved by Ballester, Barcelon, Fabregat, Gil, Mol, Muntaner, Salvador y Carmona and Selam, folding engraved map, engraved ornamental initials and head- and tailpieces. 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. Seller Inventory # 100459

About this Item: Montaner Simón, 1880. Encuadernación de tapa dura. Condition: Excelente. 1ª Edición. EL INGENIOSO HIDALGO DON QUIJOTE DE LA MANCHA.MONTANER SIMON 1880.4 TOMOS.PRIMERA EDICION Barcelona. 1880. 4Vol. 39x29. Pergamino con dorados. Ilustrada por Don Ricardo Balaca y Don J. Luis Pellicer. Se trata de una obra excepcional por varios motivos: 1º El estado de conservación de la obra es excelente, hay en el mercado alguna otra edición en 4 tomos pero en un estado mucho peor de conservación.Observen estos ejemplares. 2º Se trata de una tirada muy limitada que se hizo en 4 tomos. La tirada de la PRIMERA EDICION de 1880 en 2 tomos fue limitada, pero esta de 4 TOMOS, es probablemente la mejor edición del Quijote ilustrada impresa en España, junto a la de Ibarra. Hubo una época en que Josep Pla afirmaba que cualquier buen catalán burgués debía tener en su haber una colección de la Montaner i Simon. Era la editorial de más prestigio a finales del siglo XIX y, por ello, el arquitecto Lluís Domènech i Montaner construyó su sede en la calle Aragón de Barcelona. Un lugar céntrico y bien comunicado para una construcción que se convirtió en una de las primeras muestras del Modernismo arquitectónico barcelonés. Se trata de un edificio con historia desde sus orígenes. En un contexto como el de 1879, clásico y encorsetado, Domènech i Montaner idea un lugar polivalente e industrial para albergar la producción de libros y enciclopedias que acabarían en todas las casas de bien del viejo y del nuevo mundo. El arquitecto, preocupado por crear un estilo arquitectónico propio de la catalanidad y gran admirador del arte mudéjar, recibe el encargo de crear la edificación con total libertad. Y en ese instante revestirá de innovaciones su primer proyecto en serio como arquitecto. En la fachada se utiliza el ladrillo visto, novedad en las postrimerías del siglo XIX, y se usan materiales industriales como el vidrio y el hierro para adornar la estructura de palacio del edificio de la editorial. La edición barcelonesa del Quijote de Montaner y Simón Editores, que sale a la luz en 1880, es una de las más lujosas del siglo XIX. Sus tomos en folio, en excelente papel y mejor impresión, se adornan con las 44 cromolitografías a toda página firmadas por Ricardo Balaca y Luis Pellicer, y 252 cabeceras y remates xilográficos, grabados por maestros como J. Gómez, Smeeton,Tilly, Sadurní y Martí. Como había sucedido y sucederá con tantos artistas y editores que se acercan al Quijote, Ricardo Balaca no puede ver terminado su trabajo, ya que le sobrevino la muerte cuando sólo tenía la mitad de las estampas realizadas. Sigue de cerca el texto fijado por Hartzenbusch en 1863, con la consiguiente separación de la voluntad cervantina. El retrato de Cervantes que aparece al inicio de la edición fue grabado por B. Maura, uno de los maestros grabadores más importantes del momento. PARA CUALQUIER DUDA O COMENTARIO, NO DUDEN EN CONSULTAR. Estado:libro en estado muy bueno, ver las imágenes. GASTOS DE ENVÍO NO INCLUIDOS. Muchas Gracias !!! “El regalo de un libro, además de obsequio, es un delicado elogio”. Seller Inventory # ABE-1472226932182

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).

About this Item: Gabriel de Sancha 1797-98, Madrid, 1797. First edition of the first annotated edition of Don Quixote. Five volumes, contemporary tree calf, covers with a swashed diagonal cross, edged with a gilt roll, gilt bands and green lettering pieces, marbled endpapers, sprinkled edges. With 2 engraved portraits, 2 engraved headpieces, 3 folding maps, and 31 engraved plates executed by P. Duflos and Moreno Tejada after R. Ximeno, A. Navarro, Monnet and Camaron y Paret. In near fine condition. "This beautiful edition, which is printed on excellent paper, is of the highest importance for Pellicer's erudite notes and commentary, and for his painstaking corrections of the text" (Ruis). By focusing his attention on the authentic Spanish folklore that Cervantes would have drawn upon, Pellicer set the precedent for modern editorial methods. The present edition is illustrated with numerous fine plates, described by Ashbee as "among the finest produced in Spain." Palau 52030; Salva 1568; Mas II, 446; Ruis I, 59; Ashbee Iconography of Don Quixote 93. 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.". Seller Inventory # 62015

About this Item: 1866. Frederick Warne and Company. 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. Seller Inventory # 2091312

About this Item: MONTANER Y SIMON., 1880. Encuadernación de tapa dura. Condition: Muy bien. Sin Sobrecubierta. 1ª Edición. PRIMERA EDICION.1880. 2 TOMOS Hubo una época en que Josep Pla afirmaba que cualquier buen catalán burgués debía tener en su haber una colección de la Montaner i Simon. Era la editorial de más prestigio a finales del siglo XIX y, por ello, el arquitecto Lluís Domènech i Montaner construyó su sede en la calle Aragón de Barcelona. Un lugar céntrico y bien comunicado para una construcción que se convirtió en una de las primeras muestras del Modernismo arquitectónico barcelonés. Hoy, 'Núvol i cadira', la escultura de Antoni Tàpies, corona el edificio de la Montaner i Simon que se ha convertido en sede de la fundación del artista. Cuentan que Tàpies lo eligió nada más entrar en él y decidió colocar su creación en diálogo con la fachada como símbolo de la reflexión estética. Se trata de un edificio con historia desde sus orígenes. En un contexto como el de 1879, clásico y encorsetado, Domènech i Montaner idea un lugar polivalente e industrial para albergar la producción de libros y enciclopedias que acabarían en todas las casas de bien del viejo y del nuevo mundo. El arquitecto, preocupado por crear un estilo arquitectónico propio de la catalanidad y gran admirador del arte mudéjar, recibe el encargo de crear la edificación con total libertad. Y en ese instante revestirá de innovaciones su primer proyecto en serio como arquitecto. En la fachada se utiliza el ladrillo visto, novedad en las postrimerías del siglo XIX, y se usan materiales industriales como el vidrio y el hierro para adornar la estructura de palacio del edificio de la editorial. La edición barcelonesa del Quijote de Montaner y Simón Editores, que sale a la luz en 1880, es una de las más lujosas del siglo XIX. Sus dos tomos en folio, en excelente papel y mejor impresión, se adornan con las 44 cromolitografías a toda página firmadas por Ricardo Balaca y Luis Pellicer, y 252 cabeceras y remates xilográficos, grabados por maestros como J. Gómez, Smeeton,Tilly, Sadurní y Martí. Como había sucedido y sucederá con tantos artistas y editores que se acercan al Quijote, Ricardo Balaca no puede ver terminado su trabajo, ya que le sobrevino la muerte cuando sólo tenía la mitad de las estampas realizadas. Sigue de cerca el texto fijado por Hartzenbusch en 1863, con la consiguiente separación de la voluntad cervantina. El retrato de Cervantes que aparece al inicio de la edición fue grabado por B. Maura, uno de los maestros grabadores más importantes del momento. Seller Inventory # ABE-1476801547563

About this Item: 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.". Seller Inventory # 3220

About this Item: 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.
