1894 Don Quixote de la Mancha Miguel Cervantes English Quijote Illustrated"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. LeopoldoMiguel de Cervantes’s ‘Don Quixote’ is one of the most famous works of literature and is one of the most popular adventure tales to be written. This 1894 English edition is particularly important – as it is a revised translation based on those of Motteux, Jarvis, and Smollett. Jarvis was praised as the most accurate English translation through the 18th-century, and Smollett translations are considered highly readable. (Linsalata, 115).This 1894 edition features numerous black and white illustrations with a decorative cloth binding.Item number: #10269Price: $350CERVANTES Saavedra, Miguel deDon Quixote De La ManchaNew York: D.
