Palau 52463; Wing C 1776; ESTC R236794. Important English edition of Don Quixote, being the third edition of the first part and the second edition of the second part of Shelton's translation, and the first one-volume edition of both parts. When the first part was first published in 1612, Shelton's translation was the first in any language. The second part was first published in English in 1620 together with the second edition of the first part. The marginal staining and browning of the laid paper on which the engraved plates are pasted on largly corresponds with the adjacent text pages suggesting that these blanks have been inserted long time ago, probably shortly after publication of the first illustrated English edition in 1687 from which the engravings were taken from. Our copy thus contain the entire suit of plates of this 1687 edition (originally 16 illustrations on 8 plates). - Visit our website for additional images and information.
