About This Item

1822 Don Quixote Cervantes Chivalry Motteux English Lockhart Notes SCOTTISH 5v

"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, 19th-century English translation of Cervantes' masterpiece – "Don Quixote". This edition, translated by Peter Anthony Motteux, is considered a desirable English translation, which was very popular after its release in 1700. However, this edition was criticized and condemned by later printers for:

· Adopting a frivolous style, rather than a more serious and ironic tone

· Turning Don Quixote and Sancho Panza into buffoons

· Casting the work in a "Franco-Cockney" rather than Spanish culture

This 1822 edition was published in Edinburgh, printed in five volumes, and includes a 'life of Cervantes' by J.G. Lockhart – the first edition to feature Lockhart's essay.
