Palau 53412; Peeters-Fontainas 241; Simon Diaz 8, 561; USTC 5038771. The second Brussels edition of Cervantes' Novelas, originally published in Madrid in 1613. Very rare with only four copies recorded at auction in the past 50 years. Novelas exemplares ("Exemplary Novels") is a series of twelve novellas written by Miguel de Cervantes between 1590 and 1612. First published in Madrid in 1613 by Juan de la Cuesta, the novellas were well received in the wake of the first part of Don Quixote. They are usually grouped into two series: those characterized by an idealized nature and those of more realistic nature. Those idealized in nature are characterized by plots dealing with amorous entanglements, by improbable plots, by the presence of idealized characters and psychological development, and the low reflection of reality. The novellas show the political, social and historical problems of Cervantes' Spain and show off his immersion in Spain's life and how aware he was of the prevailing problems.
