“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, 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 three-volume edition features 18 incredible full-page engravings by George Cruikshank! The first edition to feature both Cruikshank and Smollett!
