Unsure? Ask an Expert!

A rare, late 18th-century English translation of Cervantes’ masterpiece – “Don Quixote”.  Tobias Smollett translations are considered highly readable. Smollett was a popular author in his own right and much of the popularity of this translation was due to his previous fame, rather than quality of his translation. There is also some scholarly speculation on whether Smollett knew Spanish! (Linsalata, 115).

 

This impressive 1770 edition includes 27 full-page engravings – a four-volume example of one of the most iconic novels ever written.
