The History of the Ingenious Gentleman Don Quixote of La Manch
Edinburgh - John Grant 1902 - An attractively-bound four volume edition of one of the most well-renowned works of Spanish literature. Illustrated throughout withthirty-seven engraved tissue-guarded plates. Don Quixote is considered the most influential work of literature from the Spanish Golden Age and the entire Spanish literary canon. As a founding work of modern Western literature, and one of the earliest canonical novels, it regularly appears high on lists of the greatest works of fiction ever published. The novel's structure is in episodic form. It is written in the picaresco style of the late 16th century, and features reference other picaresque novels including Lazarillo de Tormes and The Golden Ass. The full title is indicative of the tale's object, as ingenioso (Spanish) means quick with inventiveness marking the transition of modern literature from Dramatic to thematic unity. The novel takes place over a long period of time, including many adventures all united by common themes of the nature of reality, reading, and dialogue in general. Complete in four volumes. Condition: Rebound inhalf-morocco bindings. Externally, very smart. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are bright, and quite clean, with just some foxing to the first and last few pages.
