Item Description: London: Printed for J. and R. Tonson and S. Draper, and R. and J.Dodsley, 1756, 1756. 2 volumes, quarto (297 x 228 mm). Contemporary mottled calf, titles gilt to green and black labels to spines, spines richly gilt in compartments, single rule frame gilt to covers, turn-ins gilt, marbled endpapers, top edges black, others olivine, green page marker. Single leaf of card with amateur pencil drawing of plate laid-in. Expert restoration to inner hinges. Slight rubbing to extremities, occasional light foxing; an excellent set. Frontispiece to vol. I and 68 copper engraved plates by Vandergucht and Virtue, after John Vanderbank. A handsomely bound copy of the third Jarvis edition. Charles Jarvis, a friend and one-time art tutor of Alexander Pope, was primarily an artist and an art collector. He also had literary ambitions, and this translation of Don Quixote, his major literary undertaking, published posthumously and frequently reprinted, is generally considered to be close in spirit to the original. The illustrations in this edition were originally commissioned in 1723 by the publishers J. and R. Tonson to illustrate Don Quixote in the original Spanish; this eventually appeared as a lavish four-volume quarto edition in 1738, the plates used repeatedly by the publishers. "This project, for which Vanderbank's initial designs were preferred over Hogarth's, appears to have preoccupied Vanderbank, perhaps almost empathetically, for the remainder of his life" (ODNB). Vol. I contains, as issued, The Life of Michael de Cervantes Saavedra by Don Gregorio Mayáns and Siscár, "his Catholick Majesty's Library-Keeper", translated from the Spanish by Mr. Ozell.

Jervas (a printer's error resulted in "Jarvis") was an artist and art collector, but he also had literary ambitions, and with Alexander Pope (whose painting instructor he had been for some six months in 1713) he edited a version of Charles-Alphonse Du Fresnoy's De arte grafica. But his major literary undertaking was this English translation of Don Quixote to which also provided the first introduction and a critical analysis of previous translations. Published posthumously in 1742 and frequently reprinted, "it is generally acknowledged as being close in spirit to the original."
