Primera parte del ingenioso hidalgo don Qvixote de la Mancha.
En Brucelas: Por Huberto Antonio 8vo (16.8 cm; 6.625"). [8] ff., 583, [1] p., [3] ff.. 1617 That momentous international success, Don Quixote, part I, appearing in Brussels within the first dozen years of its life — this for the third time, following Brussels printings of 1607 and 1611. Part II was not issued in Brussels until 1616 and and then as a stand-alone volume. Overall this is the only 11th separate printing of part I. Scarce: We trace but five copies in U.S. libraries (Harvard, University of California–Berkeley, Dartmouth, University of Kansas, Hispanic Society). Provenance: Late 17th-century ownership inscription at top of title-page of "T. Engle"; 18th-century ownership inscription below that of "E. Ward"; on endpaper, "December, 1787," with lines in French in an 18th-century hand. Purchase information: On recto of rear free endpaper, in an early 17th-century Spanish hand, "# 1618 # [new line] En 24 de marco [i.e., março] Costo en Brusellas 20 placas. Contemporary limp vellum, soiled, ties perished; Don Quixote inked on spine, faded. Lacking one leaf of text, continuity supplied although not in facsimile from this edition (pp. 575–76). First and last gatherings guarded with strips of Renaissance vellum manuscript.
