Condition: Near Fine. 1st Edition. 1822 Don Quixote Cervantes Chivalry Motteux English Lockhart Notes SCOTTISH 5v "Small wonder if the world received Don Quixote with delight! There was nothing like unto it before: there has been nothing to eclipse it since". Rius, D. Leopoldo. A rare, 19th-century English translation of Cervantes masterpiece Don Quixote . This edition, translated by Peter Anthony Motteux, is considered a desirable English translation, which was very popular after its release in 1700. However, this edition was criticized and condemned by later printers for: Adopting a frivolous style, rather than a more serious and ironic tone Turning Don Quixote and Sancho Panza into buffoons Casting the work in a Franco-Cockney rather than Spanish culture This 1822 edition was published in Edinburgh, printed in five volumes, and includes a life of Cervantes by J.G. Lockhart the first edition to feature Lockhart s essay. Item number: #11346 Price: $599 CERVANTES Saavedra, Miguel de The History of the Ingenious Gentleman, Don Quixote of la Mancha .

About this Item: Edinburgh : John Grant. Four volumes, complete as issued. Edition-de-Luxe, with duplicate set of plates printed on Japanese Vellum, Number 14 of one hundred copies. Royal 8vo (10.5 x 6.5 ins); [xii], xlii, 445; viii, (4), 484; x, (2), 512 ; ix, (3), 508 pp; 37 plates in total (including the four frontispieces) plus 37 duplicated on Vellum, each behind tissue-guards, etched by Adolphe Lalauze (1838-1906). Titlepages printed in red and black with woodcut figure of Don Quixote. Publisher's original tan cloth, with printed paper title labels to spines, that on vol III a bit chipped; page edges untrimmed. Scattered spots of foxing to endpapers and prelims. A Fine set First translated by Motteux in four volumes in 1711-12, and acknowledged as one of the best of all the many translations due to its rich and racy diction and quaint turns of expression. Of this translation Blackwood's Magazine says, "This is, we think, out of all sight, the richest and best. Shelton's Quixote is undoubtedly well worthy of being studied by the English scholar; but it is far too antiquated an affair to serve the purposes of the English reader. Motteux, the translator of Cervantes and Rabelais, possesses a native humour that no other translator that we ever met with has approached". W.H. Prescott, in Miscellaneous (1845) pp 149-50 states, "The most popular versions in English are those of Motteux, Jarvis, and Smollett. Perhaps the first is the best of all". Geo. Ticker, in his History of Spanish Literature (1846) v3, p384 says, "On the whole, the most agreeable and the best (translation), though somewhat too free, is that by Motteux". J Gibson Lockhart likewise gave his preference to Motteux's translation. Born in Rouen, Normandy, in 1660, Motteux came to England at the revocation of the edict of Nantes (1685), living at first with his godfather and relative, Paul Dominique, the starting up a business with an East India warehouse in Leadenhall Street, London. He was to die in nebulous circumstances, in 1718, in a house of ill-repute in Star Court, Butcher Row, near St Clement's Church. (DNB, vXIII, pp 1092-1094). Book. Seller Inventory # 15522

About this Item: 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.

About this Item: Edinburgh John Grant 1908, 1908. 4 volumes. First Edition Thus, Grant's fine printing of 1908. With Provenance.
