Item Description: London: Printed by Richard Hodgkinsonne for Andrew Crooke, 1652, 1652. Folio (278 ×182 mm). Contemporary brown calf, spine gilt in compartments, brown morocco label. Spine and corners skilfully repaired, boards lightly rubbed and scuffed, title page expertly restored where the top edge was cut away affecting part of the word "history", closed repaired tears to each plate, handwritten notes to front free endpaper and plate II, contents a bit toned. A good copy. Extra-illustrated with 8 engraved folding plates. Second complete edition in English. The Shelton translation was the most popular version of Don Quixote circulating in England during the 17th century. Part I was originally published in 1612 and part II in 1620. Shelton's "original was the Velpius edition published in Brussels in 1607. The signs of haste in the translation, which took Shelton only forty days, do not hide his verve, command of Spanish, and knowledge of Spain" (ODNB). A third edition of this translation appeared in 1675. A variant issue of this edition has Andrew Crooke's address "at the Green-Dragon in Pauls Church-yard" added in the imprint: priority between the two, if any, is not known., Bookseller Inventory # 50533

Item 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).

Item Description: R. Scot, T. Basset, J. Wright, R. Chiswell/Richard Hogkinson, London. 1675, 1672., 1675. Third edition. The first part was originally published in 1612 and the second in 1620; reprinted in 1652. Folio. pp [viii], 137, [v], 273. Full leather with what appears to be a nineteenth-century rebacking of eighteenth-century boards, raised bands lettered in gilt. Endpapers renewed. Thomas Shelton's translation is not only the first in English but also the first into any language. The first part, translated from the Brussels edition of 1607, appeared when Cervantes was still alive. There has been some speculation that Shelton may have known Cervantes but this is impossible to prove. Shelton's translation was until Motteux's translation of 1700 the most popular and still has its admirers, among them Samuel Putnam who produced one of the best translations of recent times.Two early ownership signatures on the title-page one of which has been rubbed away with some light damage to the paper. With the finely engraved bookplate on the front pastedown of Allan Heywood Bright (1862-1941) who was a Liberal politician, author of several books on Middle English literature and a great bibliophile. Tipped onto the front free endpaper is a short essay, presumably in his hand, "Don Quixote revived in the person of Ignatius Loyola".Covers rubbed. Some spotting to prelims and last pages. Very good.

Armorial bookplate of John Hallifax, Esq., Kenilworth on inner front boards,19th century bookplate of J. Blackwood Greenshields on front endpapers. ESTC T59497. Jarvis's edition was first published in 1742, and was one of forty five editions of Don Quixote that appeared in English in the 18th century, (there were 33 editions in Spanish over the same period). In portraying the clash between old and new ways of ordering society it was immensely popular, and consistently reinterpreted. At the start of the 18th century scholars described Cervantes as an enlightened advocate for rational thought, but as the century closed, readers sensed romantic leanings in the author's own life, and saw in Don Quixote the making of a true romantic. He uses his 'Translator's Preface' to argue that Don Quixote 'was calculated to ridicule that false system of honour and gallantry, which prevailed even 'till our author's time' Jarvis was the first English translator to provide an introduction to the novel including a critical analysis of previous translations.

Hard to find later Shelton edition as we've been looking in vain for the missing Volume II of this set for many years - indeed, we've not come across any copies of this 1740 Shelton edition at all, so very scarce indeed. All three volumes are in a similar condition, original calf covers are scuffed and worn as one would expect from 275-year old books, but the bindings remain tight, thin gilt border on both covers plus numbers on spine which has five raised bands, page edges tanned, but there is very little actual foxing in any of the volumes, tho there are brown shadows on the pastedowns and feps, owner's name on top of fep on all three vols, written as Saint Richard(?) Burges, there are 17 lovely new engravings "From the French of Coyper", tho another 3 or 4 seem to have been cut out. Includes 38 pages of introductory material in Vol 1, plus a 34-page index at the back of Vol 4. We'd be asking £2000 upwards were the set complete, so price takes into account the missing volume.

Item Description: Edinburgh - John Grant, 1902. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. An attractively-bound four volume edition of one of the most well-renowned works of Spanish literature. Illustrated throughout withthirty-seven engraved tissue-guarded plates. Don Quixote is considered the most influential work of literature from the Spanish Golden Age and the entire Spanish literary canon. As a founding work of modern Western literature, and one of the earliest canonical novels, it regularly appears high on lists of the greatest works of fiction ever published. The novel's structure is in episodic form. It is written in the picaresco style of the late 16th century, and features reference other picaresque novels including Lazarillo de Tormes and The Golden Ass. The full title is indicative of the tale's object, as ingenioso (Spanish) means quick with inventiveness marking the transition of modern literature from Dramatic to thematic unity.
