Book Description: Valencia en casa de Pedro Patricio Mey 1605, 1605. Petit in-8 de 16 ff.n.ch. et 768 pp.ch. ; maroquin lavallière, dos à nerfs orné, doublures de maroquin bleu encadrées d'une dentelle, tranches peintes (A. Palomino Olalla). Brunet, I, 1748 ; Palau, 51978 ; Ríus, I, 6 ; Salvá y Mallen, II, 1547 ; Gallardo, II, 1765 ; Heredia, 2509 : "Édition fort rare (.) que Salvá considère aussi précieuse que les premières éditions madrilènes" ; Don Quixote, cat. de Francfort, 1991, n° 5 (second tirage). Cinquième édition, parue la même année que l’originale. Ce petit volume imprimé à Valence contient la première partie des aventures de Don Quichotte. Publiée quelques mois après l’originale donnée à Madrid par Juan de la Cuesta, cette édition est précédée par celles de Lisbonne – à l’adresse de Jorge Rodríguez, puis de Pedro Craesbeeck – et par la réédition madrilène donnée par Juan de la Cuesta (qui publiera la seconde partie du chef-d'œuvre de Cervantès en 1615). Le titre est orné d'un joli bois gravé montrant Don Quichotte à cheval et en armure, visière baissée et armé d'une lance : cette vignette apparaît ici pour la première fois. Il existe deux versions de cette édition de Valence: notre exemplaire est en premier tirage, avec les remarques typographiques signalées par Heredia. L'approbation, imprimée au recto du deuxième feuillet liminaire, est datée du 18 juillet 1605. "No es casi necesario advertir que las dos ediciones valencianas compiten en rareza con las de Madrid" (Salvá). Édition précieuse, très recherchée par les cervantistes et les bibliophiles. Nul n’ignore que les éditions de Don Quixote publiées au cours de l’année 1605 sont toutes d'une grande rareté. Rappelons très brièvement leur chronologie. En janvier 1605, l'édition originale de la première partie du Quixote (Madrid, Juan de la Cuesta) arrive au Portugal précédée d'une rumeur et d'une réputation formidables. Les imprimeurs-libraires de Lisbonne, devinant le profit que l'on peut tirer d'un tel succès éditorial, se pressent pour obtenir de l'Inquisition une approbation et un permis d'imprimer. Dès le mois de février, Jorge Rodriguez sort de ses presses la première édition lusitanienne du Quixote, une contrefaçon in-4 de l'originale comportant de nombreuses fautes typographiques causées par l'empressement de l’imprimeur lisboète à doubler ses confrères-concurrents. En effet, un mois plus tard, Pedro Craesbeeck donne sa propre édition du roman, mais dans le format in-8, plus maniable : il prend soin de corriger les fautes de Jorge Rodriguez. mais en ajoute quelques autres de son cru. La course au Quixote a commencé. Toujours en 1605, Juan de la Cuesta et Cervantès se réapproprient la paternité du premier roman des temps modernes en proposant à nouveau, sans corrections ni variantes, l’édition madrilène in-4. Vient ensuite cette petite édition dite "de Valence", la troisième imprimée sur le sol d’Espagne et la première portant une autre adresse que celle de Juan de la Cuesta. Il faudra attendre 1608 pour que ce dernier fournisse un texte correct et quasiment ne varietur de la première partie du Quixote, très probablement revu par l’auteur. Grossièrement imprimés sur un papier de qualité médiocre, les Don Quixote "pirates" de 1605 trahissent à n’en pas douter la hâte qui présida à leur publication. Ils n'en sont pas moins précieux : c'est par eux que les aventures du "chevalier à la triste figure" furent répercutées aux quatre coins de la péninsule ibérique, avant d’envahir l'Europe via Bruxelles et Milan.

Book Description: London: Blount, 1620, 1620. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine. 1st Edition. Two volumes. Small quarto. Fine period-style limp vellum, yapp edges, green silk ties, by Bernard Middleton. Engraved title-pages. DON QUIXOTE IN ENGLISH. Without the blank after engraved title in vol. I, several rules and headlines shaved, tear to upper outer corner sig. P7 in vol. II with loss of two letters. Occasional mark or minor stains. A very good, fresh copy. First complete edition in English of Don Quixote, a founding work of modern literature and the first canonical novel. The 1620 edition comprises the second edition of Part I (first printed in 1612 and of the greatest rarity), here somewhat revised, and the first edition of Part II. The turn of the 17th century was a pivotal moment in intellectual and literary history. In the span of two decades, three of the greatest works of Western literature were produced: Shakespeare’s plays, the King James Bible, and Don Quixote. “Don Quixote is one of those universal works which are read by all ages at all times, and there are very few who have not at one time or another felt themselves to be Don Quixote confronting the windmills or Sancho Panza at the inn” (PMM 111). The two parts of Don Quixote were first published in Spanish in 1605 and 1615. Part II, commonly considered the greater and more mature of the two, was written while Cervantes was at the peak of his powers. In The Western Canon, Harold Bloom notes, “in part two, which I prefer, knight and squire alike have to sustain a new self-consciousness . . . to know that you are a character in an ongoing book is not always a help in your adventures. Surrounded by readers of their earlier debacles, Don Quixote and Sancho nevertheless remain uninhibited. Sancho actually gains in zest, and there is an even greater closeness in friendship between the two characters. . . . What happens to Cervantes in this part moves me most, because his relation to his own writing changes. He is facing toward death, and something of him will die with Don Quixote, while something else, perhaps deeper, will live on in Sancho Panza.” This first English edition was translated by Thomas Shelton, who used the Spanish edition published in Brussels in 1607. “The signs of haste in the translation, which took Shelton only forty days, do not hide his verve [and] command of Spanish” (ODNB). “Shelton’s view of [the translator’s] function was ampler and nobler than the hidebound grammarian. He appeals to the pure lover of literature, and as a man of letters he survives” (Fitzmaurice-Kelly). A set of first Spanish editions of Don Quixote would now command millions of dollars. This lovely example of the first complete edition in English is a most desirable alternative. This is an unusually appealing copy of this enduring classic, a book, when found, is usually badly flawed. Provenance: Tobias Rodgers, his sale, Christie’s, 25 June 1980, lot 123. STC 4916-4917.

Book 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.

Book 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).

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.

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. 12x17cm. Bookseller Inventory # 0010407

Book Description: London: for William Miller, 1801, 1801. 4 volumes, octavo (235 × 145 mm). Late 19th-century red straight-grain morocco, spines gilt-lettered direct, raised bands, gilt rules, marbled endpapers, gilt edges. Bookplates of Henry J. Toulmin. A touch of wear to tips, an excellent set. Engraved portrait, folding map with route coloured in red, 19 engraved plates, drawn by Stothard, James and others, some unattributed; engraved by various persons, many after the designs in the Ibarra 1780 edition. This large paper edition is the most elaborate and handsome of the many reprints of Jervas's translation of Don Quixote, first published posthumously in 1742. "[L]a major de las publicadas hasta estonces por los traductores ingleses del Quijote" (Río y Rico). Charles Jervas (1675–1739) was an Irish portrait painter and translator of considerable talent in both fields, one of the literary circle of Addison, Pope, and Swift. He acted as art buyer for the prime minister, Sir Robert Walpole, and eventually held the post of king's painter. In literature, he and Pope (whose painting instructor he had been for about six months in 1713) edited a version of Du Fresnoy's De arte grafica (1716), and he made a new translation of Machiavelli's Novella di Belfagor, but his major literary undertaking was this English translation of Don Quixote: "it is generally acknowledged as being close in spirit to the original" (ODNB).

Four volumes, octavo, original publisher's Roxburghe-style binding of quarter brown roan and brown paper-covered boards, spines gilt lettered with "Six Guineas" at foot of each.

Book Description: Edinburgh John Grant 1908, 1908. 4 volumes. Grant’s fine Library Edition, first edition thus. Richly illustrated throughout with 37 engravings designed and etched by Ad. Lalauze on tissue-guarded plates, engraved portrait of Cervantes at the beginning of Volume I. Tall, thick 8vo, in the publisher’s original brown cloth with paper labels printed in red and black on the spines, t.e.g., others untrimmed. xlii, 445; x, 484; xii, 512; xii, 508 pp. A very handsome set, very fine and seemingly unread and unused, the brown cloth with only extremely minor age evidence, paper labels a bit mellowed by time. 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.
