Item Description: J & R Tonson, 1738. Full-Leather. Book Condition: Poor. (287 x 220mm). Engraved portrait of Cervantes by George Virtue, 68 engraved plates, woodcut head- and tail-pieces and initials. The books also include The Life of Michael de Cervantes Saavedra by Don Gregorio Mayans I Siscar, published in 1737. This is 4 volumes complete, and one of the most significant editions of Don Quixote, as it was the first deluxe edition and also the first edition published in Spanish in England. It has been described as 'the first with a great artistic value' (Palau). The engravings are fine and quite beautiful, with all pages collated and present. There is some light scattered foxing and some of the pages are lightly discolored but uniform in their darker coloration. The contemporary bindings are in poor condition with detached boards and one broken spine. One board is also missing, including the end paper but the content is clean, with aforementioned minimal foxing and some scattered discoloration. Please refer to the photos below for a good idea of the condition of the volumes and contents. This is a perfect set for re-binding, and the last set was auctioned in 2011, so this is a very rare set and an incredible work, fit for any fine collection. The sets which sold in 2011 went for 3,750 pounds and 5,380 euros, respectively, when the dollar was comparatively much weaker than today. Bookseller Inventory # 015808

VIDA Y HECHOS DEL INGENIOSO HIDALGO DON: CERVANTES SAAVEDRA, Miguel

Item Description: .- Palau 52010 'Primera edición en lengua original publicada en Inglaterra y 1ª de carácter lujoso y de valor artístico. El texto corregido por Pedro Pineda resulta muy esmerado, pues aparte de tener a la vista las mejores ediciones corrientes, parece que también compulsó las primitivas de Cuesta. El retrato de Cervantes, obra de Kent, es conforme al autoretrato escrito por el propio Cervantes en el prólogo de sus 'Novelas'. Las 68 láminas fueron dibujadas por Vanderbank y G.Kent, y grabadas en cobre por Vander Gucht, Vertne, Baron y Claude de Bosc. (.) El aspecto de la edición es suntuoso y bello: lástima que el papel, a pesar de buena calidad, se oscurece en algunos pliegos, afeando la unidad del conjunto.' Salvá 1562, Suñé 42, Brunet I 1749.

Viuda de Rico, 612-613 ; Rio y Rico, 74 ; Plaza Escudero, I, 48 ; Benages/Fonbuena, 54 ; Palau, 52023. PRECIEUSE EDITION DU DON QUICHOTTE DONNEE PAR MANUEL MARTIN AU SIECLE DES LUMIERES. Ornée de 44 figures gravées sur bois dans le texte, elle repose sur les éditions Costa 1605 et Martin, 1765. « No es texto muy común y Henrich no reprodujo su portada. Los Suñé la citan en la ficha 59, pero no habló de ella Givanel Mas, ni la cita del Río y Rico. La portada y la composición general son diferentes a las de otras ediciones.» (E. Rodriguez-Cepeda, Los Quijotes del siglo XVIII). « Hay que considerar, sin embargo, que estas impresiones son las que han universalizado la idea cervantina. Con la filosofía racionalista del siglo XVIII, la ilustración y el racionalismo fueron el mejor cobijo de la imaginería cervantina, permitiendo que un texto tan original y caprichoso proliferara en la mentalidad de los lectores con suma facilidad. Don Gregorio Mayans y Siscar hace el primer estudio sobre la vida del autor, incluido en esta obra. Mayans y Siscar no sólo es el primero, sino el que hace del Quijote un libro moderno para entender a Cervantes y el género novelístico en esa época. » (A. Sequera Victoriano, Ediciones de Don Quijote de la Mancha, impresa en el siglo XVIII). « A special type of Quixote, illustrated with woodcuts was sold in the street; it was published by M. Martín between 1765 and 1782. This was how this most intellectual of Spanish literary text penetrated the popular culture of the period. Por todo esto se extendió con los ilustrados el alcance de la obra cervantina y la fuerza del texto abarcaba a todas las clases sociales y a todos niveles culturales; en el XVIII empezó a ser el verdadero libro para todos. Los Quijotes con tacos de madera, hoy son muy escasos, los conjuntos de cuatro volúmenes andan casi siempre descabalados (inclusive en los catálogos y bibliotecas oficiales). Estas impressiones han sido las que más han universalizado la idea cervantina.» (E. Rodriguez-Cepeda). « Les philosophes, les encyclopédistes se font de Don Quichotte une arme contre la religion et ses ministres» (P. Mérimée, M. Bardon, Don Quichotte en France au XVIIe et XVIIIe siècles). TRES SEDUISANT EXEMPLAIRE, DE TOUTE PURETE, CONSERVE DANS SON VELIN SOUPLE DE LEPOQUE. Provenance : Bibliothèque Fernand Bertrand, avec ex-libris sur la page de garde ; présence de divers ex-libris manuscrits de lépoque « Beauvany », « Château Gonti » sur les feuillets blancs et les plats.

Item Description: Chelsea Ashendene Press -28, 1927. First Ashendene edition, one of 225 copies on Batchelor paper, out of a total edition of 245 copies, folio, printed in red and black in the new Ptolemy type, modelled on type used by F. Holle of Ulm in the printing of Ptolemy's 'Geographia' in 1482, text in double columns; border and initials designed by Louise Powell and cut on wood by W. M. Quick and Geo. H. Ford, original pigskin by W. H. Smith & Son, all edges untrimmed, internally fine, edges a little browned, binding slightly rubbed with a few faint marks, else very good, each volume preserved in a later black cloth slip-case with morocco head and foot at entry. A beautiful example of a one of the great works of the Ashendene Press. The Ashendene Press was a small private press founded by St John Hornby (18671946). It operated from 1895 to 1915 in Chelsea, and was revived after the war in 1920. Its books are considered to be amongst the finest of the Private Press movement. "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: Printed by Richard Hodgkinsonne, for Andrew Crooke, at the Green Dragon in Pauls Churchyard, London, 1652. Second Edition. Second complete edition in English and the first edition of both parts issued together. Translated by Thomas Shelton. Folio (286 x 189 mm), collation: [8], 137, [5], 138-214, 216-244, 244-273. Lacking final leaf (provided in manuscript facsimile) and final blank. Variant title page lacks Andrew Crooke's address, priority between the two, if any, is unknown. Additional printed title to Second Part. Modern binding in full leather to style. Engraved title to first part soiled and with inner margin extended. Some marginal worming and dampstaining, a few contemporary marginal notes and the occasional tear, but all text legible. "One of those universal works which are read by all ages at all times." (PMM 111) Published in two volumes a decade apart (in 1605 and 1615), Don Quixote is the most influential work of literature to emerge from the Spanish Golden Age and the entire Spanish literary canon. As a founding work of Western literature, it is often cited as the first modern novel. The Shelton translation is generally considered the English translation that "realizes Cervantes' manner more nearly than any successor." (DNB) Grolier, Langland to Wither, 213. Pforzheimer 140.
