Description
1870 Don Quixote Cervantes English Chivalry Motteux Translation American 2v

"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 very popular translation, which was very popular after its release in 1700. However, this edition was criticism 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
Still, a fine set with marbled boards, bound with an essay on the life of Cervantes by John Lockhart.

Item number: #1139

Price: $350
