Just ask! 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 ...
