“There is no book so bad…that it does not have something good in it.”

― Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra, Don Quixote

 

Miguel de Cervantes’s ‘Don Quixote’ is without question one of the most famous novels ever written. Telling the story of a knight who ultimately loses his mind, ‘Don Quixote’ is a tale of chivalry and bravery. First appearing in 1605 and 1615 in two parts, this book gained fame throughout the world, so much so that English editions surfaced between 1618 and 1620.

 

This exception 1652 English edition of ‘Don Quixote’ is one of the most fascinating and important printings of the work: the first folio English edition – a truly rare printing!

 

Thomas Shelton’s English was the standard English printing of this work for more than 120 years until Charles Jervas’ translation appeared.
