Item Description: Madrid: Don Joaquin Ibarra, 1780, 1780. 4 volumes, quarto (301 × 213 mm). Early 19th-century mottled sheepskin, 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 tail-pieces. 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. Bookseller Inventory # 100459

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.

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.

Item Description: Por El Coronel Francisco López Fabra, Imp. Pablo Riera. 1871 - 1873; 1874; 1879., Barcelona., 1871. 4 vols. Large 8vo. (282 x 210 mm). Facsimile: Each vol. with half-title in green and justification leaves, vol. I with 332 leaves printed recto and verso with facsimile of Part I of Don Quixote (1605), vol. 2 with 292 leaves printed recto and verso with facsimile of Part II of Don Quixote (1615); Notes: pp. viii, 202 and with 10 issues of the 'Boletin de la Reproduction Foto-Tipografica de la Primera Edicion . &c.' bound in at rear of vol.; Iconography: Half-title, printed title, leaf with Fabra's dedication, leaf with prologue, 101 leaves with mounted plates on chine and 4 leaves with additional bibliographic detail. Later blue half-morocco by René Kieffer with his stamp to front free endpapers verso, marbled boards and endpapers, banded spines with gilt titles in six compartments, t.e.g. others uncut, original publisher's wrappers preserved. A good copy of the facsimile of the first editions of both parts of Cervantes' Don Quixote together with the additional volumes of notes and iconography. From the edition limited to 2,605 numbered copies on 'papel de Capellades D. Santiago Serra'. Produced from the copies of the first editions of both parts of Don Quixote (Part I published in Madrid in 1605, Part II in 1615) from Madrid's Biblioteca Nacional, this facsimile edition was published in a series of 26 parts. The edition was printed 'en facsímile por la fototipografía, y publicada por su inventor el coronel Don Francisco López Fabra, bajo los auspicios de una Asociación Propagadora de la que son preseidente el excmo. Sr. D. Juan Hartzenbusch, autor de las notas de esta edición, y secretario el Sr. D. Carlos Frontaura'. The first two volumes contain the facsimiles - apparently the first facsimile produced using a lithographic technique - of the first edition of each part of Don Quixote. The third volume presents a series of notes on the text by Juan Eugenio Hartzenbusch (as indicated there are 1,633 notes) giving details of variants and corrections, as well as textual analysis; the volume concludes with Hartzenbusch's contextual essay 'Cervántes y Lope en 1605: Citas y aplicaciones relativas à estos dos esclarecidos ingenios' and the ten issues of the 'Boletines' giving details of the publication history and subscribers. Volume IV, the 'Iconografia de Don Quijote' presents bibliographic details of 60 editions of Don Quixote with 101 tipped-in illustration taken from the relevant work. The editions inlude 15 printed in Madrid, 23 in Paris, 11 in London, 3 in Barcelona, and one each from Boston, Brussells, Copenhagen, The Hague, Leipzig, Prague, Tours and Venice. 'What had begun as a simple satire on the tedious chivalric romances of the time broadened into a sweeping panorama of Spanish society; and it was this, the variety, the liveliness, and the gibes at the famous, which won it instant fame. Its larger claims, the subdues pathos, its universal humanity, were slower to be appreciated . 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). Although this facsimile and the subsequent volumes were published in a relatively large edition, the work is rare in commerce: examination of the subscribers' list in the 'Boletines' indicates that a large part of the edition was destined for academic institutions and the remainder for subscribers in Spain (particularly in Madrid and Barcelona). The only subscribers outside Spain (apart from Portuguese or Spanish-speaking countries) are two copies destined for Frankfurt and 30 copies for the bookseller Bernard Quaritch 'para diversas Bibliotecas de Europa'.

Some light browning, blank upper corners vol. I G5-6 torn away. Contemporary calf, gilt ruled borders, expertly rebacked in matching style, raised & gilt banded spines, red morocco labels. 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. Bookseller Inventory # 57216

Item Description: D Midwinter, W Innys et al, 1740. Hardcover. Book Condition: Good. No Jacket. After Coyper (illustrator). First Thus. 16mo - over 5¾ - 6¾" tall. 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 must be pretty rare. 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.

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. The novel takes place over a long period of time, including many adventures all united by common themes of the nature of reality, reading, and dialogue in general. Complete in four volumes.
