More About Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra
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."

Don Quijote de la Mancha Aug 6, 2007
Very nice book! Elegant presentation. This version is easy to understand because it provides many footnotes that guide modern readers to the culture of Spain in the 1500's. I'm having a great time reading it!
Don Quijote. 400th Anniversary - Dalí. 100th Anniversary Mar 1, 2005
A great combination is this new release of Don Quijote de la Mancha with 38 illustrations dated 1945 by Salvador Dalí. This book was originally published in the US by Double Day in 1946. There was a special edition by the Argentinian publisher EMECE in 1957 and reprinted in Argentina in 1965. In 1979, the US publisher made a new reprint. The Gala Salvador Dalí Foundation made a special facsimile edition with 43 illustrations (5 new sketches that have only been published in the catalog of the Museu Teatre Dalí). It was a limited edition (unrepeatable) of only 998 copies of 370mm x 370mm. It started at 4,500€ and it seems that it costs now about 8,000€. Editorial Planeta published a new edition, in a smaller size, but perfectly bounded with hard slip cover that you are going to like.
