Item description for Don Quijote de la Mancha by Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra, Francs Gordo, Jose Luis Cordoba Del Aguila, Hans Rooseboom, Saskia Asser, K. H. Lee, Eric Kingson & Kevin Nowlan...

A superlative work of world literature, Miguel de Cervantes's classic novel is a story about the human spirit. His characters Don Quijote and the loyal Sancho Panza, an idealist and a dreamer, have transcended the pages of the novel to become iconic figures in their own right. Illustrated 19th-century French artist Gustave Dor's intricate and imaginative engravings, which often are said to have put a face on Don Quijote, this luxurious box set of the two volumes of Don Quijote de la Mancha commemorates the 400th anniversary of the book's publication.

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra (1547-1616) found some initial success as a playwright.From 1571 through 1575, he fought with the Spanish fleet and served in garrisons throughout Italy. He was then captured by the Turks in Algiers and held prisoner for five years. Upon his return to Spain, he held various diplomatic and government posts but faced constant financial hardship and served two terms in prison. His fame was secured with the publication of Don Quixote (1605) and its sequel, which was published shortly before his death.

Walter Starkie, noted authority on Spanish history and culture, eminent lecturer, scholar and writer, was for more than twenty years a professor at Dublin University.From 1940 to 1955, he was director of the British Institution in Madrid."

Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra was born in 1547 and died in 1615.

Reviews - What do customers think about Don Quijote de la Mancha?

great illustrations - poor editing  May 24, 2006
Dore's illustrations are fabulous and clearly reproduced, which is the reason I'm ordering this edition, however this book has an unbelievable number of typos which can be confusing to a student of Spanish.
As for the illustrations, Dore managed to capture the emotion and humor of the story in each drawing. They are too good to miss.
