London: Hurst, Robinson, and Co., Cheapside. 1820. xx, 371; [iv], 388; [vi], 367; [vi], 436 pp. 16mo. Parts 1 and 2 complete in four volumes. This edition is notable for the engravings from designs by Robert Westall, R.A. Don Quixote (fully titled The Ingenious Hidalgo Don Quixote of La Mancha), is a novel written by Spanish author Miguel de Cervantes. Cervantes created a fictional origin for the story by inventing a Moorish chronicler for Don Quixote named Cide Hamete Benengeli. Published in two volumes a decade apart (in 1605 and 1615), Don Quixote is the most influential work of literature to emerge from the Spanish Golden Age and the entire Spanish literary canon. As a founding work of modern Western literature, it regularly appears high on lists of the greatest works of fiction ever published. Condition Notes: Rebound in plain blue cloth with gilt titles and rules, new endpapers. One gathering sprung in first volume, front and end matter, plates, and a few text pages foxed. A nice candidate for an elaborate new binding, though we have left this decision to the next owner (please inquire to discuss options for rebinding).
