Part 2 of Don Quixote showcases some of Gustave Doré's most powerful imagery to tell the unforgettable story of Don Quixote. First published in the 1600's by Spanish writer Miguel de Cervantes, Don Quixote is regarded by many as history's greatest piece of literature, made even better when enhanced by the spectacular artwork of Gustave Doré. This Retro Restoration includes: - Full-size 8 1/2" x 11" pages - Crisp digitally re-scanned and enhanced images - Bold new cover design - Author's original page layouts - Classic type font - English printing with illustration captions Don Quixote Part 2 concludes the two-part saga of Don Quixote de la Mancha and Sancho Panza as they heroically travel in pursuit of adventure and the knowledge of what it means to be human. Don Quixote's vivid imagination is rivaled only by the creative vision of Doré, who gives the armor-clad aspiring knight and his companions the charismatic and iconic look for which they are still remembered today. The CGR Publishing Restoration Workshop spared no expense when restoring, cleaning, and digitally remastering a rare, mint copy of Don Quixote for a new generation of readers. Doré's crisp illustrations explode from the pages with incredible detail to liven Cervantes' unforgettable storytelling. Many regard Don Quixote as Doré's best work, showcasing his skills as a technical illustrator and gifted, humorous cartoonist. The prodigal French artist unleashed a nonstop barrage of humorous cartoons, caricatures, and adorable scribbles that highlight the humor and imagination of Cervantes' character and his relationship to those around him. Doré also created some of his most outstanding full-page work filled with intricate details that tell stories within the story. Don Quixote is a sight to behold and a thrill to read.

This carefully crafted ebook: “Don Quixote (illustrated & annotated) - The Unabridged Classic Ormsby” is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. It is the version based on unabridged classic Ormsby translation, fully illustrated by Gustave Doré. Don Quixote, fully titled The Ingenious Gentleman Don Quixote of La Mancha, is a Spanish novel by Miguel de Cervantes, published in two volumes, in 1605 and 1615. It follows the adventures of Alonso Quijano, an hidalgo who reads so many chivalric novels that he decides to set out to revive chivalry, under the name Don Quixote. He recruits a simple farmer, Sancho Panza, as his squire, who often employs a unique, earthly wit in dealing with Don Quixote's rhetorical orations on antiquated knighthood. Don Quixote is considered the most influential work of literature from the Spanish Golden Age and the entire Spanish literary canon. Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra ( 1547 (assumed) – 22 April 1616) was a Spanish novelist, poet, and playwright. His magnum opus, Don Quixote, considered to be the first modern European novel, is a classic of Western literature, and is regarded amongst the best works of fiction ever written. John Ormsby (1829–1895) was a nineteenth-century British translator. He is most famous for his 1885 English translation of Miguel de Cervantes' Don Quixote de la Mancha, perhaps the most scholarly and accurate English translation of the novel up to that time. Ormsby's translation has seen more editions than any other nineteenth-century English version of the novel, having been included in the Heritage Book Club series of great novels, and in the famous Great Books of the Western World set. The contemporaneous translations by Alexander J. Duffield (1881) and Henry Edward Watts (1888) have been virtually forgotten. Ormsby also provided his own introduction and footnotes for his translation.
