Don Quixote

by Cervantes, Miguel de

Condition: See description

San Francisco: Arion Press, 2010. Wiley, William T.. Small quarto. Two volumes: 574; 627pp. One of 400 copies. Signed by the artist at colophons of both volumes. Illustrated throughout with etchings by Wiley, whose style captures the romance, and tinge of humor, that runs through the narrative. Wiley created the prints by scratching the emulsion from film with an etching needle. The negatives were then used to make polymer plates. Arion Press' two volumes mirror the way in which the very first edition was printed, with the second volume appearing ten years after the first. Both bound in brown and tan goatskin, with gold titling to spine and a gold "DQ" monogram, and housed in slipcases. Fine.

Multi-volume Set

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 creating a fictional 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.
