I KNOW no book so pre-eminently suitable for illustration as El Ingenioso 
Hidalgo Don Quixote de la Mancha. In its marvellous pages will be found 
everything that the artist can possibly desire. Will he delineate human 
character ? Where can be found types more varied, more distinctly marked ! 
From the duke and duchess to the galley-slaves, from the knight and his 
squire to the urchins of Barcelona, one and all possess individuality. Does 
he seek scenery ? The inhospitable plains of La Mancha and the rugged, 
picturesque passes of the Sierra Morena furnish it in abundant variety. 
Animals are there, and remarkable ones, oxen, sheep, birds, Sancho's ass, 
his master's horse and his "galgo corriente" all studies of breed and 
idiosyncrasy. The costume is remarkably varied, the picturesque garments 
of the iyth century being mingled with the earlier armour and knightly 
accoutrements of that chivalry which Cervantes " smill'd away". Ludicrous 
situations, of every possible kind, abound. 

All this is well known. Since the early part of the i8th century artists 
of all nations and in every walk of art have been attracted by this enchanting 
book. Pictures, tapestries, statues, engravings are the result ; unfortunately 
the philosophy, the pathos, the subtilty of Cervantes have too frequently 
been overlooked, and his broad humour alone seized upon. His hero has 
been depicted as a ridiculous lunatic rather than as an erudite, clear minded 
gentleman, and the shrewd, faithful peasant, who follows him, has been 
converted into a coarse glutton. The book in short has been treated as if 
suitable only for the amusement of children, not, as it really is, capable of 
enlightening and diverting the adult. It must be owned, I fear, that no 
work of art emanating from Spain's most famous literary production can be 
placed in the very foremost rank. 

In the following pages I have endeavoured to describe the various 


engravings on wood, metal and stone done to illustrate Don Qvixote, the 
translations of that work, and some books founded upon it. 
I have divided my notices into classes or sections : 

I. Engravings contained in editions of Don Quixote, those published 

in other works, those issued separately. Arts, i to 327*. 
II. Continuations of Don Quixote by other pens than that of Cervantes. 
Arts. 328 to 336. 

III. Dramas based on Don Quixote, and works owing their origin to that 

romance. Arts. 337 to 359. 

IV. Portraits of Cervantes. Arts. 360 to 403. 

V. Life of Cervantes and Autographs. Arts. 404 to 411. 
VI. Pictures, Tapestries and Statues. Arts. 412 to 468. 

My articles, which follow each other in chronological order, and which 
I have sought to render as clear, comprehensive and succinct as possible, 
are on one uniform plan : When noticing sets of engravings I give (a) the 
number of engravings of which the set is composed ; (6) their size in inches 
and in milimetres, measuring the engraving itself, not the plate, and always 
(i) vertically from top to bottom, (2) horizontally from side to side ; (c) the 
names of the painters or designers, and engravers ; (d) any special indications 
which the engravings may possess ; (e) in what edition of Don Quixote, or 
other work, they were published ; (/) date of publication ; (g) the various 
states in which they have appeared. 

The English language is strangely deficient in terms of art, and I have 
not unfrequently been obliged, much against my will, to employ foreign 
expressions, concerning which a word or two may not be out of place. 

" Vignette " is not an English word, but I know no other to indicate 
small engravings, in the text or more usually on the title-page. 

When these small engravings are not squared off, but are left with 
their edges rough or uneven, as in arts. 128, 140, etc., I call them " vig- 
netted ". Vignetted is an awkward, un-English word, conveying no very 
clear or precise meaning; but the French equivalent "a claire-voie" would 
not be universally understood by English readers. 

The small etchings or engravings which artists sometimes add on the 
margins of their engravings in certain states (arts. 249, 286) I call 


"remarques". I believe we have no English word to designate these 
marginal, extra embellishments, nor am I sure that the word remarque 
Would be recognised as bearing this signification by the French Academy. 

Etching again is no equivalent for the French " eau-forte ". The former 
indicates a finished work, whereas by the latter we understand the effect 
produced by the first bite of the acid before the burin or other tool has 
been employed. 

It would be well were these and similar terms definitely and authori- 
tatively fixed. 

I do not notice publishers' marks, typographical ornamentations, or 
illustrations which have no direct reference to persons or incidents in the 
tale. Thus I have passed over the first edition of Madrid, For Juan de la 
Cuesta, Ano, 1605, of which the title-page bears a heraldic composition with 
a motto, which might serve equally well for any other work. 

In order to avoid unnecessary repetitions I have in quoting the title- 
pages of Don Quixote invariably omitted the name of Cervantes and other 
words referring to the authorship. However, in the Continuations not by 
him I give the author's name, when mentioned, to obviate confusion, as 
in art. 2. 

As this work is not strictly biographical I do not transcribe title-pages 
in extenso, but only so much of them as will clearly distinguish the 
various editions. 

The arrangement I have adopted is, as already mentioned, chronological. 
This system commended itself to me in preference to that of grouping my 
notices under their respective designers or engravers, as it enabled me to 
refer back from later or spurious engravings to the original productions of 
the same designs, and to point out how far the latter differed from the 

In this chronological arrangement the readers will be guided by the 
figures on the heads of the pages. Nevertheless, in many notices dates 
posterior to those on the page-headings will be found ; but these are only 
of reprints and reproductions and are unworthy of separate articles. The 
dates at the top of the pages refer to original, special, or typical editions 
and impressions. 

In other respects my plan may appear to savour of topsyturvydom. I 
pass from ordinary impressions of engravings to proofs and etchings (eaux- 

viii PREFACE. 

fortes), from engravings to original drawings or paintings, from illustrations 
to the books for which they were done. This could not be otherwise. 
Had I in every instance been able to inspect the original designs I would 
naturally have begun by describing them, and passed on to the engravings 
taken from them. But I notice nothing which I have not seen, and in a 
few instances only have I had the original drawings in my hands. More- 
over, the object of this compilation is to point out what the collector can 
obtain, viz. the engravings prepared for the public, not the artists' designs 
which may no longer exist, or may be hidden in the cabinets of amateurs. 
Nevertheless, when good fortune has placed drawings or pictures in my way 
I do not fail to mention them. 

Of contractions I have been chary. I consider it unfair to the reader 
to inflict on him the study of a page or so of abbreviations, generally in 
small type, before he can consult a work with comfort. The few words 
which I have shortened will be clear at once to any one accustomed to 
use books of reference : art. for article, mm. for milimetres, vol. for 
volume, etc. 

When describing an engraving, or a picture, I call the right side that 
facing the right hand of the beholder, the left that opposite his left the 
reverse, in fact, of the dexter and sinister of heraldry. 

My original intention was to confine myself to the two parts of Don 
Quixote strictly, and to pass over both the Continuations, and the portraits 
of Cervantes. This restriction 'I soon found inconvenient and unsatisfactory. 
The work of Cervantes has on more than one occasion been published 
together with the continuation or even continuations, and engravings after 
designs by the same artist run through both productions (arts. 16, 20, 74, 
etc.). It would be manifestly insufficient to notice a part only of a set of 
plates, confusion and incompleteness must result from such a treatment. 
One thing then led to another, and I was eventually induced to include 
both continuations of, and works relating to, Don Quixote. With respect 
to the portraits : Since 1738, when the first likeness of Cervantes was 
invented (art. 39), scarcely an illustrated edition of his masterpiece has 
appeared without an attempt of some kind to portray his image. To omit 
mentioning this supplementary illustration would be to notice the edition 

Should my measurements sometimes seem to be incorrect it should be 


borne in mind that all the engravings in the same set are not invariably 
of the exact, same size. I have given the dimensions of one only, generally 
one of the first in the book. 

I have endeavoured to render the Table of Editions Noticed and the 
Index as thorough, complete and exhaustive as possible, so that by their 
aid the reader, if he knows but the name of the publisher or place of 
publication, may find the edition he seeks, or with a knowledge of the 
artist, engraver, or even the printer, he may be able to identify an 
engraving be it one only of a set. 

Section VI. is entirely tentative, and should perhaps have been omitted. 
Having mentioned in previous articles, while describing the engravings in 
which they were reproduced, a few pictures and drawings, I thought it well 
to add notices of other pictures, tapestries, and statues which have generally 
not been engraved. My list is of course utterly incomplete and is only 
offered as the nucleus for a more thorough treatment of a very interesting 
branch of the iconography of Don Quixote. I should be grateful to any of 
my readers who would direct my attention to any original painting or other 
work of art not included in my list. 

The task I have undertaken is neither new 1 nor original. An Iconography 
of Don Quixote already exists. But the present work is on an entirely 
different plan from the Iconografia published at Barcelona in 1879 (p. 172), 
and in no way interferes with, or pretends to supplant, that useful publication. 

That a work of this kind can be perfect, thoroughly exhaustive, and 
free from errors no bibliophile will expect. As however I have taken 
nothing for granted, and have used my best endeavours to render .the 
inherent mistakes as few as possible, I cherish the hope that my labour 
may not be absolutely disdained by the book-lovers to whom it is in all 
modesty and humility offered. 

1 I have already treated the same subject, in a popular manner, on two occasions: in an 
article entitled " Quelques Illustrateurs de Don Quichotte," published in the Annales Litteraires 
des Bibliophiles Contemporains, Paris, 1892 ; and in a paper read before the Bibliographical Society, 
March 20, 1893, ar "d printed in Vol. I. of the Transactions. Both these monographs are insufficient, 
and contain errors which I trust I have in the present work more or less corrected. In my paper 
before the Bibliographical Society I spoke of .the immediate and wide-spread popularity of Don 
Quixote. Were further proof of that assertion needed it would assuredly be found in the fact that 
in 1613, two years before the appearance of the second part, a procession of Quixote characters 
was formed in the town of Dessau in Germany. See art. 337. 



It must be owned that in spite of the great number of illustrations 
which have been done for Don Quixote few of them are really satisfactory. 
In this opinion I am to a great extent in accord with Mr. H. E. Watts. 
Those that are beautiful, such as the engravings after Coypel (art. 22) and 
Smirke (art. 119), are not Spanish ; those that are Spanish lack artistic 
merit (art. 72) ; whereas the much vaunted productions of Dor6 (art. 247) 
are not faithful to the narrative. 

The question then arises whether a work of the imagination should 
ever be illustrated whether it were not better to leave the reader entirely 
in the author's hands without the intervention of a second party. To have 
thoroughly satisfactory illustrations there would seem to be but two alterna- 
tives : either the author must illustrate his own work ; or he must have at 
his elbow an artist of equal and similar genius to his own. Both combi- 
nations are alike difficult. The former presupposes an author talented in 
the same measure with both pen and pencil, a contingency rarely if ever 
met with; 1 the latter requires that author and artist should be contemporary, 
and work in collaboration. 2 But books are generally illustrated long after 
the author's death by artists who knew him not, and may not even be of 
the same country. Then again it not unfrequently happens that the artist 
reads negligently the book he has to design for, or endeavours to improve 
upon it. Until quite recently it was not thought necessary to adhere 
closely to scenery or costume to treat an author in fact archseologically. 
These considerations, not to adduce any others, are, I believe, sufficient to 
account for the unsatisfactory state of illustrations generally, and of those 
for Don Quixote in particular. My duty however has been to record and 
describe rather than to criticise, consequently I abstain from further 
discussion of so delicate a question. 

My gratitude is due to my revered friend Senor Don Pascual de Gayangos 
for the interest he has evinced in my undertaking and the aid he has afforded 
me in correcting the press. I would also thank M. P. Roblin of Paris for 
the assiduity which he has shown in bringing to my notice the various sets 
of illustrations which have passed through his hands in the course of his 
interesting business. 

1 Thackeray's illustrations of his own works, to cite a single example, are not, I believe, 
considered equal to his writing. 

3 As was the case with most of the novels of Dickens. 


I lay down my pen with regret. Mine has been a labour of love, and 
has afforded me, for some time past, delightful occupation during my leisure 
moments. My recompense then has been already attained, for my work 
has been its own reward. Should nevertheless my book prove useful, in 
however small a degree, and should it be found possible to award me the 
lowest place among those who have devoted their time and energies to 
Cervantes' immortal romance, the summit of my ambition will have been

I have not seen this edition, but am indebted for above notice to the Iconografia, 
where the engraving in question is reproduced as No. i of the series. The same 
engraving will be found on the title-pages of the two following volumes:

A set of i engraved and illustrated title-page, and 37 engravings, size about 8 by 
7 inches = 204 by 178 mm., all unsigned ; within the design are the names of the 
various figures ; and underneath, or above, and sometimes running into the design, 
descriptions, frequently of some length, in French ; all have the publisher's name, 
" BOISSEUIN rue petit pont au chaudron," generally underneath, but sometimes 
within, the design. No letter-press. The title-page reads: 

Les Avantvres du fameux Cheualier Dom Qvixol de la Manche et de Sancho Pansa 
son escuyer. 

No date. Probably L. BOISSEVIN engraved the above set himself. STRUTT says 
that he flourished 1623, and "it is thought that he engraved also himself". There 
is a copy in the Cabinet d'Estampes de la Bibliotheque Nationale at Paris. 


A set of 2 engraved frontispieces, and 24 engravings, unsigned, twelve to each 
vol., size 4! by 2f inches = 114 by 68 mm. : The first frontispiece has, above, a round 
medallion portrait of Dulcinea ; below, Don Quixote mounted and Sancho on foot 
with the head of his ass under his left arm ; on either side are figures of Amadis 
and Roelant (sic) on pedestals ; the names of all the figures are given ; on the verso 
are four lines of verse in Dutch. This frontispiece has been reproduced more than 
once (see arts. 8, 9, 10, n, 14, 16, 19). The second frontispiece has Merlyn, Dulcinea, 
Sancho Panca, and Don Quixote. The engravings, which are well executed, have 
" Fol." indications in one of the top corners. Done for

The engravings are said to be by SALOMON SAVRY ; l and the translation by L. 
VAN DEN Bos. On the last page of the second volume we read : Gedruckt bij JACOB 
PRAAT, in de Wercken de Hoop, 1657 ". 

I have seen another edition, which contains, I believe, the same, or very similar, 
frontispieces and engravings to those here described. As, however, I had not the 
opportunity of comparing them carefully, I cannot speak positively. It is :

etc., par F. DE ROSSET. Derniere Edition, augmentee &> enrichie de Figures en Taille 
dottce. A Paris, Par la Compagnie des Libraires dv Palais, M.DC.LXV. 12, 2 vols. 
A frontispiece to each volume. 

1 STRUTT, who spells the name " Savery," observes that some of his work is "executed in a style, 
which does him no small credit ". 



A set of 2 engraved title-pages, and i6 l engravings. The title-page to the first ' 
volume is copied from that of the edition of Dordrecht, 1657 (art. 7), and is 
reproduced in the Iconografia* as No. 2. That to " Tomo Segundo" has, at top, 
an enframed portrait of Merlin ; on each side are seated figures of Dulcinea and 
Sancho, with Quixote and a Lion underneath. The names of all the characters are 
underneath their several representations. Both bear, in a space below the design : 
" En Bruselas, En casa de Juan Mommarte, 1662 ". Both measure 6 T % by 3^ 
inches = 157 by 83 mm., and are unsigned. The engravings, which are all un- 
signed, measure sf by 3^ inches = 146 by 82 mm. ; they have, at the top, " Fol." 
indications; whilst the eight belonging to the second volume have, at the bottom, 
" parte II.". Done for

The same two engraved title-pages and sixteen plates were again used in the 
edition En Bruselas, A costa de Pedro de la Calle. Ano 1671. Con Licenda y 
Privilegio. 8, 2 vols. 

In his notice of the edition Bruselas, 1662, Mr. H. E. WATTS remarks with 
some asperity : 

This edition has the further distinction of being the first which was " embellished " with 
plates. 3 These embellishments, which herald the long line of vile attempts to make Don Quixote a 
picture-book, are remarkable, even among the Don Quixote illustrations, for their ugliness and ludicrous 
inappropriateness to the text. 


A set of i engraved frontispiece, and 26 engravings : The frontispiece, which 
measures 5!* by 3! inches = 145 by 85 mm., is unsigned, and has, above, portraits, 
in circular frames, of Dulcina [sic] and Merlijn ; in the middle the Don mounted with 
Sancho on foot holding Dapple's head under his left arm ; on each side full-length 
figures of Amadis and Roelant [sic] ; and below Quixote on foot with a lion. It is 
subscribed: "Don Quichot Ridder vande Leeuwe". On the verso are four lines of 
verse in Dutch. The engravings are the same as those in the edition of Dordrecht, 
1657 (art. 7), rather worn, and the " Fol." indications altered to suit the new pagi- 
nation. Done for 

1 The Iconografia gives "31 laminas," I believe erroneously. 
a And there said to be " Grabada por F. BOUTTATS," which seems doubtful. 
3 This remark, which is endorsed by Mr. J. R. ANDERSON, is, to say the least, misleading. It is 
not the first illustrated edition, although it may be the first in the Spanish language.

however the impress is now cut off, and sixteen of the engravings all unsigned, are 
the same as those of the edition Bruselas, 1662 (art. 8) ; the remaining fourteen 
engravings, which measure 5! by 3! inches = 144 by 93 mm., consequently not 
quite the same dimensions as the others, are signed, within the design, F. BOUTTATS 
scul. ; all thirty have, above, " parte " and " Fol." indications. Two of the engrav- 
ings by BOUTTATS are reproduced as Nos. 5 and 53 in the Iconografia? Done for

The same series was again employed in the edition En Amberes, For Henrico y 
Cornelia Verdussen, M.DC.XCVII. Anos ; and again in that En Amberes, For Juan 
Bautista Verdussen, M.D.CC.XIX. Anos. Both in 8, and 2 vols. ; on the printed 
title-pages of both editions "32 Estampas" are specified.

in each volume ex title-pages, will be found in

A set of i engraved frontispiece, and 32 engravings in the text by DIEGO DE 
OBREGON : B The frontispiece, which measures 6 by 4^ inches = 156 by 114 mm., 

1 In spite of this indication I have never found the full count of engravings in the several copies I 
have examined ; the " 26 figuren " then may possibly include the frontispiece. 

2 A confusion seems to have been made between the editions of Bruselas, 1662, and Amberes, 1673, 
the title-page of the former (No. 2) being applied to the engravings (Nos. 5 and 53) of the latter; the 
dimensions of the engravings, too, are incorrect, and their number, thirty-one, is also false, as indicated 
on the title-page above transcribed, thirty-two, counting the two title-pages, is correct. Or there may 
even be thirty-two ex title-pages. I have examined several copies, none of which had more than thirty- 
two engravings, including the two title-pages. However, there are undoubtedly thirty-two engravings 
without counting the title-pages in the edition of Lisboa, 1775 (vide supra), and there might be that 
number in that of Amberes, 1673. 

3 In the Iconograf'ia this set is noted as " Dibujo y grabado anonimos ". 



has the signature of DIEGO DE OBREGON exculpsi. In spite of this important name, 
the design is not original, but is copied and enlarged from that of the edition of 
Dordrecht, 1657 (art. 7). The engravings, fifteen to the first, seventeen to the 
second volume, measure about 3^ by 4$ inches = 88 by 120 mm., and are unsigned. 
One is reproduced as No. 4 in the Iconografia. They are for the most part inspired, 
if not exactly copied, from the same Dutch originals. Done for

This is the first illustrated edition done in Spain, and the engravings, of very 
considerable merit, have been frequently reproduced. I note the following editions 
in which they will be found more or less worn :

The frontispieces are very badly reproduced, and have the "To." or " Tomo " 
indications in the design ; they have also, underneath, in italics, for Vol. I. " Santio 
Panza : Don Chisciotte de la Mancia," for Vol. II. " Don Chisciotte Caualiere Del 
Lione ". The execution of the engravings is better ; they have the " Fol." indications 
changed to correspond with the new text. There are eight engravings to each vol. 


A set of i engraved frontispiece, and 16" engravings: The frontispiece measures 
lof by 6 T 9 inches = 264 by 166 mm., and has, within the design, the word " Frontis- 
piece," and the names of Dulcinea Del Toboso, Sancho Pancha and Don Quixot, 
underneath the delineations of those characters. The engravings, two on each plate, 
measure 5 by 5f inches = 127 by 145 mm., and have descriptions, in English, and 

1 In spite of this statement there are in reality only thirty-two engravings in the text, and one 
engraved frontispiece. I have never found a frontispiece in the second part. 

2 In the Iconografia " 13 laminas " are given erroneously. LOWNDES mentions " 9 copper- 
plates," which is so far correct. 


"page" indications, underneath, except in the windmill adventure, where both are

bridge. Small 4, pp. 24, printed about 1690. 

The text begins on the verso of the title-page, which is numbered 2. I believe 
that there is an earlier edition of 1686, and a later one of 1699, but I have seen neither. 


A set of i engraved and illustrated title-page, and 24 engravings : The title-page, 
which measures 5! by sf inches = 142 by 85 mm., is signed, within the design, L. 
SCHERM inv. Fee. ; upon a tablet, on which is inscribed " Don Quichot Ridder van 
de Leeuwen," stands the Don with a lion ; underneath Quixote kneels on one knee 
before a lady, behind him Sancho holding the bridle of Rosinante. The engravings, 
marked off with a line, measure 4$ by 2f inches = 115 by 67 mm., and are unsigned ; 
those for the first part, eleven in number, have, at top, above the line, " F." or 
" Fol." indications ; the twelve in the second part have " deel " or " de." and " Fol." 
or " F." indications. The series possesses little artistic merit. The designs of the 
engravings are as those in the edition of Dordrecht, lacobus Savry, 1657 (art. 7), 
re-engraved. Done for

the engravings, is based on the adventure with the windmill, and has above, left,

A set of 6 engraved and illustrated title-pages, and 46 engravings, size about

which is copied from that of the edition of Dordrecht, 1657 ( art - ?)> is signed H. 
CAUSE sculp. ; that to Vol. III. bears the same signature ; that to Vol. V. is signed 
LUYKEN f.; while those for Vols. II., IV. and VI. have no signatures. The engravings, 
in the first rive volumes, have, at top, " Tome " and " pag." indications, while those in 
the sixth volume have " pag." indications only. The plates in Vol. V. only are signed 
C. L., or C. LUYKEN f., or CASPER LUYKEN f. ; they are distributed as follows : Vol. 
I. ii, II. 5, III. 8, IV. 8, V. 8, VI. 6, of which those of the first four volumes 
belong to Don Quixote ; while those of the two latter to the continuation, many of 
the plates in the first two volumes are copied from those of the edition of Dordrecht, 
1657, re-engraved, and sometimes turned. The condition or quality of the plates, 
notably that representing Sancho tossed, Tome i., pag. 203, varies in different 
copies, as if some impressions of the plates had been used before the plates themselves 
were finished. Done for

1 I am not certain that the two frontispieces are in addition to the thirty-three engravings, 
believe rather that the "33 Copper Plates" include the frontispieces. 




A set of 6 engraved frontispieces or title-pages, and 52 engravings, size 4^ by z\ 
inches = 124 by 70 mm. : The frontispieces are unsigned; that to Vol. I., which is 
roughly imitated from the one in the edition of Dordrecht, 1657 (art. 7), has, within 
the design, the title, volume indication, names of the various figures, and below, 
outside the design, "A Lyon ch6s Thomas Amaulry " ; that for Vol. II., "Don 
Quixotte de la Manche, Tome Deuxieme" only; that for Vol. III., "Tome Troisieme, 
Merlin, Don Qvixote Cavalieros \sic\ de los Leones"; that for Vol. IV. has "Don 
Quixotte de Lamanche, Tome Quatrieme" on the end of the cloth which covers the 
table at which the Don is sitting ; that for Vol. V. has the title and volume indication 
on a shield above, between two figures, and on an oval shield below, "A Lyon chez 
Thomas Amaulry Rue Merciere, au Mercure Galant, 1711"; that for the last vol., 
"Continuation de 1'Hist. de Don Quichotte Tome 6 C " on a shield above several 
mounted figures fighting. The engravings, of which thirty-two refer to Don Quixote, 
Vols. I. to IV., and the remaining twenty to the Continuation, have, most of them, 
at top, outside the design, "To.," "Ch." and "fol.," or "Tome," "Chap." and 
" fol." indications, others "pag." only, with the number of the vol. to which they 
belong ; four in the third, and two in the second volume are signed, within the design, 
BIZOT f., the others have no signature. These engravings, if quaint, are spirited, 
fairly well drawn, and firmly engraved. Done for

A copy of the same edition is before me with title-page, printed in red and black, 
similarly worded and dated, but Chez Charles Osmont, rue S. Jacques, etc. The impres- 
sions of the 'engravings equally good. The same plates, very much worn, will be 
found in the reissue, title as above, printed in black only, A Paris Par la Compagnie

A set ot i frontispiece, and 10 rough woodcuts in the text : The frontispiece is 
simply a combination of two engravings, which will be found at pp. 26 and 70. The 
engravings measure about 2| by 2| inches = 63 by 70 mm., all unsigned. They are 
curious, but devoid of artistic worth. Done for

Mancha. etc. adorn d with Cuts, etc. London, Printed for D. Pratt, at the Bible and

A set of 31 engravings, varying in size from n by n to 13$ by lof inches, or 
from 290 by 280 to 335 by 270 mm., from paintings or drawings by the following 
artists: CHARLES COYPEL (signed variously C., CH., CAR.) 25, TREMOLIERS i, 
TRESMOLIER i, J. P. LE BAS i, F. BOUCHER i, COCHIN filius i, N. COCHIN fils i ; 


FR. POILLY i ; all signed by both artist and engraver; four are dated, viz., one 1723, 
and three 1724 ; all bear a description of the subject, in French, and all, except the 
first and the last, have reference to the " tome," " chap.," and sometimes to the 
" livre," where the incidents may be found ; all are subscribed with indication 
where they could be bought, viz., 25 "chez Louis Surugue (or Surrugue)," 3 " chez 
Ravenet," 3 " chez Dupuis " ; a few bear "Avec Privilege du Roi ". 

The title-page of my own set, which is undated, reads cross ways, and appears 
to have been prepared for this set specially, is thus worded : 

Les Aventitres de Don Quichotte de Cervantes, peintes par C. COYPEL & N. COCHIN, 
Peintres du Roy. Et gravies Par M rs . SURUGUE, Pert 6 Fils, COCHIN, RAVENET, 


L'EPICI"., etc. Graveurs du Roy. A Paris : Chez Surugue Rm des Noyers, vis-h-vis S*. 
Yves. C. P. R. 

As these engravings were sold separately by their respective engravers, there 
is a difficulty in getting together the thirty-one in a good state. 

The twenty-five 1 engravings after COYPEL seem to have been engraved under the 
direction of that artist. The pictures themselves now adorn the walls of the Chateau 
de Compiegne. They have been reproduced at the Gobelins in tapestries (art. 419). 

The title-page accompanying the twenty-five engravings after Coypel reads : 

Les Prinripales Avantures de r Incomparable Chevalier Errant Don Quichotte de la 
Manche; peintes par CHARLES COYPEL, Premier Peintre du Roy, Et gravees sous so. 
direction, par les plus habiles Artistes en ce genre. A Paris, Chez Jacques-Francois 
Chereau, rue S. Jacques, aux deux Pilfers d'Or. No date. 

This title-page, according to M.M. COHEN and CROTTET, is frequently wanting. 
It was probably got up after the engravings were done, when it was decided to make a 
special issue of those after Coypel. 

I possess also the twenty-five engravings after COYPEL with the following title- 

L'Histoire de Don Quichote [sic] de la Manche peintre [sic] pour le Roy, Par CHARLES 
COYPEL, I" Peintre de Sa Majeste en 25 Tableaux ; Et gravee par les mellieurs [sic] 
Maitres. A Paris, Chez la V e . de F. Chereau, rue S. Jacques, aux deux Pilliers d'or. 
M.DCC.LVI. Avec privilege du Roy. 


A set of 9 (?) engravings, size about n by 12 inches = 280 by 305 mm., from 
the designs of COYPEL (art. 22) ; all bear that artist's name, as well as those of 
the engravers, all have descriptions, in English, and either " Engraved from the 
Originals. Printed in Paris and Sold in London by H. Overton & J. Hoole at y e 
white Horse without Newgate," or simply ' Printed and sold by," etc. ; five are dated. 
As this set is uncommon, and should consist, I presume, of more than nine, I give 
the titles of the nine before me, in the order in which they follow in the story, adding 
the names of the engravers and the dates of those which are dated : 

(1) Don Quixote, led by y* Folly, etc. I. MYNDE, 1725. 

(2) Don Quixote Dubb'd Knight, etc. I. MYNDE, 1725. 

(3) Don Quixote deceived by Sancho takes a Country Girl for Dulcinea, G. BICKHAM, 
jun r . 

(4) Basile having espoused Quiterie by stratagem, is defended by Don Quixote, 
I. MYNDE, 1725. 

(5) Don Quixote, Supposing y* Puppets (in y* Show) to be Turks, etc. I. MYNDE. 

i COHEN says 24 in error. He also introduces erroneously Picart le Remain, thereby confusing 
this with the set noticed in art. 43. 


(6) Don Quixote, by Sancho desires leave to be Admitted into the Duchess's Presence, 

COLE. 1 

(7) Don Quixote attended & dressed by the Maids of the Duchess, I. MYNDE, 1725. 

(8) The Lady Dolorida, pretending to be afflicted with a Beard, intreats Don Quixote, 
etc. I. MYNDE. 

(9) Sancho departing for his Government in Barataria, etc. I. MYNDE, 1725. 


A set of 24 engravings, size about io by uj inches =.274 by 290 mm., with 
descriptions, in English, underneath, numbered, underneath the descriptions, i to 
24, signed CAR. COYPEL pinx., and further subscribed " Sold by G. Vander Gucht in 
Queen Street, Bloomsbury"; they are copied and turned from the set noticed in 
art. 22. In that set there are twenty-five engravings after COYPEL, the one omitted 
in this series is " Dorothea surprised at the bath," one of Coypel's most charming 
conceptions. One would suppose that this series should also consist ot twenty-five, 
but I believe that it is complete with twenty-four. The plates are not numbered in the 
order in which they should follow in the story, but probably as they were executed ; 
e.g., the plate entitled Wisdom delivers Don Quixote from his Madness, which is the last 
in the original set, is in this series numbered 20. The engraver's name is not given, 
but we may fairly attribute them to the VANDER GUCHTS, or to their pupils, and may 
suppose that they were executed about 1725. 


An engraving, size zof by 13 inches = 270 by 328 mm., representing Sancho 
tossed in the blanket (Sancho bern6), copied and turned from the engraving after 
TRESMOLIER in the set noticed in art. 22. The impression in my possession is 
before letters, and without signature. I suppose it to be engraved by G. VANDER 
GUCHT, about 1725, and may have been intended to form part of the set after Coypel, 
noticed in preceding art. (24). The copy in the British Museum is added to that set. 


A set of 22 engravings, size 4-^f by 5^ inches = 122 by 135 mm., from designs 
by COYPEL, and turned from the original series (art. 24), engraved by I. V DR GUCHT 
n, G. V DR GUCHT n, all the plates are signed by both artist and engravers, they 
have, at bottom, a description of the subject, in English, and, at top, indications 
of "Vol.," "chapt." or " pag." ; the engraving is rough but forcible; as the vols. in 
which they were inserted are small they are always found folded. Done for 

1 The initials, if any, were obliterated in the only impression I have seen of this print.

Reprinted, in same form, with same plates for J, Walthoe (and fourteen others), 
1731 ; and again, with same plates much worn, for D. Midwinter (and fourteen others) 

MDCCXL ; both London. 


A set of 12 (?) engravings, size about 6 by gj inches = 175 by 235 mm., of 
which the first eleven, numbered by me, are after COYPEL (art. 22), although that 
artist's name is not given ; all have, underneath, descriptions in English. The 
set is uncommon, and I describe it plate by plate, adding name of engraver when 
signed ; the engraving is bad, and the set has no artistic merit. 

(1) The first plate, of which the pictorial part is rather smaller than in the others, 
serves at same time as title. It is headed : The History of The admirable Don 
Quixote de la Mancha, and his Man Sancho, and, in the extreme right corner, " Sold 
by H. Overton & I. Hoole at the white Horse without Newgate, London " ; under- 
neath, " Don Quixote led on by the Folly of an extravagant Love for Dulcinea," etc., 
unsigned, turned. 

(2) Don Quixote Dubbed a Knight, etc., unsigned. 

(3) Don Quixote arms his Head with the Bason of a Barber, etc., unsigned, turned. 

(4) Don Quixote fasten 'd to a Window by the malice of Maritomes, unsigned, turned. 

(5) Don Quixote deceived by Sancho takes a Country Girl for Dulcinea, with name 
and address of publishers, turned, signed PARR sculp. 

(6) The Bachelour Sanson Carasco or Knight of the Mirrours is vanquish' d by 
Don Quixot [sic], etc., unsigned. 

(7) Don Quixote Supposing the Puppets (in the Show} to be Turks, etc., unsigned, 

(8) Don Quixote by Sancho, desires leave to be Admitted into the Dutchesss Presence, 
unsigned, turned. 

(9) Don Quixote attended &f dressed by the Maids of yf Dutchess, unsigned. 

(10) Sancho's Cowardice at the Hunting, unsigned, turned. 

(n) Don Quixote and Sancho mounted on a Wooden Horse imagine they are 
travelling through the Air, etc., unsigned, turned. 

(12) Don Quixote meeting the Kings Lyons on y e road forces the Keeper to open y* cage 
in order to encounter them, unsigned. 

I presume this set to have been published about 1725, date of a larger set by 
the same publisher (art. 25), or possibly somewhat later. PARR, whose name appears 
on one of the plates, I take to be the same engraver who did the illustrations in the 
English version of Avellaneda's Continuation, published in 1745, noticed among the 
Continuations, post, (art. 334). 



A set of coloured engravings, enclosed in double lines, size, from line to line, 
frff by gf inches = 174 by 240 mm. I have seen one engraving only of this set. It 
is vignetted, and imitated, but not exactly copied, from the first one of those after 
COYPEL (art. 22) ; it is turned, and two trees are introduced, one on each side of the 
design, which do not exist in the original ; it bears, within the lines, at top, No. 307, 
underneath, the signatures, left, C.P.S.C. Maj., right, MART. ENGELBRECHT exc. 
A.V. ; there are two lines of description, in French and in German, viz., Don 
Quichotte conduit par la Folie, etc., and Don Quichotte von der Thorheit geleitet, etc. 
Worthless. Executed probably in Paris during the popularity of Coypel's large set. 


A set of 6 coloured engravings, or rather engravings for colouring, enclosed in 
double lines, size 5^ by 8 inches = 140 by 203 mm., each plate containing about 
twelve various subjects, with references to "Tom." and "chap." added to the chief 
incidents. The plates are numbered throughout, top left corner, outside the lines, 
i to 6, right corner, at bottom, inside the lines, 823 to 828 ; plate No. i has, in 
addition, outside the lines, above, the title of the set, Don Quichotte le Chevalier errant, 
and, below, N. 146. They are all signed, outside the lines, left, C.P.S.C. Maj, or 
CUM P.S.C. Maj, and, right, MARTIN ENGELBRECHT excud. A.V., or the same 
abbreviated. The subjects are derived from various sources, principally from the 
designs of COYPEL (art. 22). These plates were issued without any text, and were 
produced for the amusement of children. They are worthless artistically, and are 
scarce. Date about the same as preceding set, or rather later. 

A set of 16 engravings, size 5 by 3^ inches = 127 by 80 mm., unsigned, with 
descriptions in English, and " Vol." and " Pag." indications underneath ; poorly 
drawn and roughly engraved. Done for

Knapton used the same plates again in his edition of MDCCXXXIII. 

An engraving, size 5^ by 3 inches = 134 by 76 mm., signed M. VANDERBANC 
del., I. V DR GUCHT Sculp 1 ; it represents Anselmo reclining under a tree to which his 
horse is tied, and the man coming on horseback from the city, to acquaint him of

Extracted from Don Quixote, Part I., Chapter 35. This appears to be part of

A set of 2 engraved allegorical headings in the text, and 33 engravings in the 
text, size about 3! by 4! inches = 88 by 118 mm., all unsigned, reproductions of 
those by DIEGO DE OBREGON (art. n), distributed as follows: sixteen in the first,

The frontispiece bears the words " Histoire du Fameux Don Quixote de la Manche," 
on drapery suspended across the design ; under it stand the Don, and Sancho, who 
points with his left hand to a portrait of Dulcienea ; a water-wheel and the two animals 
to the right; it is signed HUMBLOT inv., CARS sculp. The engravings, which measure 
about 5 by 2f inches = 128 by 70 mm., have, at top, " Tom." and " pag." indications ; 
some are unsigned, while on others are found the following signatures : BONARD inv. 
17, BONNARD inv. 6, MATHEY Fecit 4, CARS sculp. 23, Grave par CREPY le Fils 4; 
thirty-two belong to Don Quixote, the remaining seven to the continuation ; of the 
former many are imitated from the designs of COYPEL (art. 22), although that name 
does not appear, nor is there any indication of the theft, on the contrary several are 
fathered by either BONARD or MATHEY; the plate marked "Tom. V., pag. i re " 
belongs to the end of Vol. IV. The plate marked " Tom. I., page 318," is reproduced 
in the Iconografia No. 21. Done for

A set of 10 (?) l engravings, folding, size about 4^ by 5 inches = 120 by 128 mm., 
from the designs by COYPEL (art. 22), turned ; they have, above, " Vol." and " Page "

1 Although the twenty-five designs of Coypel may not all have been reproduced, I am inclined to 
think that this edition should contain more than ten "cults". The distribution in my copy, the only 
one I have seen, is as follow: : Vol. III. oeven engravings, Vols. I., II. and IV., one each.

A set of 42* wood-cuts in the text, unsigned, size 2| by 3 inches = 62 by 76 mm., 
placed usually at the heads of chapters, generally square, some, however, have 
the corners cut off, rendering them octagon in form, distributed as follows : fourteen 
in the first vol., nine in the second, six in the third, thirteen in the fourth ; they are 
very crude, but curious. The cut at Part II., Lib. v., Cap. xii., is reproduced in the

A set of 2 engraved title-pages, and 32 engravings, sixteen in each volume, 
subjects and size identical with those of the edition En Amberes, 1673 (art. 10), 
re- engraved by F. DIODATI; the engravings are generally, but not always, signed, 
within the design, F. D. in monogram ; whereas the engraved title-page of the 
second volume has the signature in full F. DIODATI. P. S. The set exists on India

An engraving, size ioj- by nf inches = 260 by 299 mm., subscribed "Sancho

midst of Plenty, Pedro Rezzio his Physician, out of great Care for his health ordering 
every Dish from the Table before the Goi'ernour Tasts it. Printed for H. Overton and

at the top we read " This Original Print was invented and engraved by WILL". 
HOGARTH, price i s ". Undated, but published in 1738. 

1 In spite of this indication there are in reality only forty-three cuts, plus the two vignettes at head 
of the dedications. 

* In the Iconografia " 43 laminas " are given. 


This plate is found in three states, viz. : 

1. Without any letters, and before the heads of the two ladies, seen at the 
entrance, left, were altered. 

2. Without the inscription above, " This Original Print," etc., but with the 
inscription below. 

3. As described above. 

In Anecdotes of William Hogarth, London, 1833, p. 208, we read that two impres- 
sions, one with inscription cut off, sold for $ 153. 6d. in Baker's sale. 

Impressions of the three states are in the print room of the British Museum. 
S. Ireland had the original drawing. 


A set of i portrait, 1 and 68 engravings : The portrait, size 8 by 5! inches = 
203 by 147 mm., subscribed " Retrato de Cervantes de Saavedra por el mismo. 
Vida Cervantes, p. i," and signed " G. KENT inven'. et delin., GEO. VERTUE Londini 
Sculp'." ; the same exists, with English subscription, " Portrait of Cervantes de 
Saavedra by himself. Life of Cervantes, p. i," with signatures as above. Cervantes, 
with a ruff round his neck, is seated at a table writing ; Don Quixote mounted and 
the head of Sancho's ass are visible through the open window in the background. 
The sixty-eight engravings, including a frontispiece, measure about 10 by y| inches 
= 255 by 185 mm. ; they are numbered i to 68, and have " vol." and " j>." indica- 
tions, except the frontispiece, which has " vol." only ; they are signed JN. VANDER- 
BANK inv'. et Delin., GER. (or GER RD .) VANDER GUCHT sculp., except the following 
Nos., viz. : No. 2, signed, within the design, I. VANDERBANK Inven'. et delin., GEO. 
VERTUE Sculpsit 1723. No. 3, unsigned, but designed by W. HOGARTH, reproduced 
by Ireland as No. i of his set of nine. See art. 95. No. 15, signed I. VANDERBANK 
in., B. BARON scul. Nos. 39, 43, 49, signed JN VANDERBANK invenit., CLAUDE DU 
Bosc Fecit. They were afterwards used with the translation of JARVIS, London, 1756, 
and the page indications altered to correspond with the English text ; the quality of 
the impressions, however, in the copies I have compared, does not much vary. 
Three reproductions are given in the Iconograf'ia under Nos. 12, 38, 90. In plate 4, 
which bears the signature of I. VANDERBANK inv., the Innkeeper, as IRELAND 
remarks, " has more than accidental resemblance to the figure drawn by HOGARTH. 
See art. 95. This is undoubtedly one of the noblest sets of engravings ever executed 
for Don Quixote ; COHEN calls them "belles figures ". Done for 

Vida y Hechos del Ingenioso Hidalgo Don Quixote de la Mancha, etc. En Quatro 
Tomos,fAc. En Londres : Por J. y R. Tonson. MDCCXXXVIII. 410. 

LOWNDES adds : " A splendid and excellent edition, published by Lord Carteret, 
with plates, two of which are by HOGARTH". To be exact, let me say that plate 

1 Of which no mention is made in the Iconografia. 


No. 3, and one figure in plate No. 4, are by HOGARTH. At p. 62 of Vol. I. is a 
charming tail-piece, finely engraved, representing two knights fighting, and signed 
I. V. del., P. F. sc. A word more touching the portrait, of which the subscription 
is puzzling and might almost lead to the supposition that Cervantes had painted his 
own likeness. There exists in fact no authentic portrait of Cervantes, and in order 
to furnish his edition with this necessary embellishment Lord Carteret had to invent 
one. Thus " por el mismo," or " by himself," means simply that Kent composed 
the portrait after the indications which Cervantes has furnished of his own appearance 
in the preface to his Nowlas Exemplares. 

Concerning this and other supposed portraits of Cervantes to be mentioned 
later on, I would refer my readers to the able remarks of Mr. H. E. WATTS in his life of 
Cervantes prefixed to his translation of Don Quixote. About the engravings he writes : 

The copper-plates were done on a scale of great magnificence, so far as the engraving was 
concerned, the engravers being VIRTUE and VANDERGUCHT. The artist, however, one Vanderbusch 
(sic), by no means corresponded in skill and in imagination to his author, his inventions being 
incredibly bad, vulgar, and grotesque, without any spark of real humour, or sense of harmony with the 
text. Finally, there was affixed to the first volume a portrait of Cervantes, etc. With all its defects, 
the edition which I have cited always as Lord CARTERET'S, is a noble book, worthy of the author and 
of England, and deserving of a place in the library of every lover of Cervantes. 

Amateurs desirous of diving deeper into the motives and merits of these 
contested plates may be referred to the Advertencias de D. JUAN OLDFIELD Dotor en 
Medidna Sobre las Estampas desta Historia at the beginning of the first volume. 
In his verbose and somewhat highflown criticism, the portrait and frontispiece, as 
well as the engravings, are descanted on by the worthy doctor, who compares with 
them the engravings after COYPEL (art. 22) to the disparagement unjust, I think 
of the great French artist. Dr. Oldfield's notice covers eight closely printed 4 pages. 
See also arts. 43 and 72. 

Baron R. PORTALIS says that Renouard owned one of the original drawings by 
VANDERBANK, " spirituelle croquade sur papier gris ". 


A set of 2 wood-cuts on the title-pages, and 42 wood-cuts, twenty-three for 
Vol. I., nineteen for Vol. II., in the text, size about i\ by 3^ inches = 65 by 90 mm., 
unsigned ; poor in design and rough in execution. Done for

A set of 20 engravings, consisting of the sixteen " New Sculptures " noted under 
art. 30, and four others ; the sixteen old plates have the page indications altered to 
suit the new text ; the four additional plates, which are worse in quality than the 
original sixteen, may be distinguished from them by having the vol. and page 
indications at the top, right, instead of at the bottom ; they are also unsigned.

engravers : J. FoLKEMA 1 12, S. FOKKE 8, P. TANJE" 4 ; the designs are those of 
COYPEL (art. 22) turned. Done for

A set of 31 engravings, size about 7f by 6 inches = 195 by 155 mm.; designs 
as in art. 22 ; engraved by J. v. ScHLEY 2 . 13, B. PICART 12, P. TANJ^ 5, S. FOKKE i ; 
those by SCHLEY are dated, viz., three 1742, one 1743, one 1744, eight 1745. All 
are signed by both artists and engravers ; all have descriptions of the subjects, in 
French, without any indication as to the place in the book ; all are numbered, 
at the bottom, I. to XXXI. in Roman numbers. They exist also without the numbers ; 
and these are, according to COHEN, the first impressions. Three are facsimiled in 
the Iconografia under Nos. 16, 60, 95. COHEN calls them " superbes illustrations," 
and M. E. CROTTET adds : 

1 In his notice of this artist, Baron ROGER PORTALIS remarks : " L'un des travaux les plus 
connus de FOLKEMA est sa reduction in 8 des figures de CHARLES COYPEL pour les Aventures de Don 
Quichotte, executees avec FOKKE pour une edition parue seulement en 1768". He has overlooked the 
above edition, and refers to that of Amsterdam (art. 58). Under Tanje he makes another error, giving 
the date there as 1746. 

2 COHEN gives this name in two ways, J.-V. SCHLEY and V. SCHLEY, both incorrect. 



Les exemplaires de choix ont le texte encadr (which I am inclined to doubt). Les premieres 
4preuves des figures ont paru dans Petition hollandaise publiee 4 la meme date (1746). Elles sont 
bien superieures a celles de 1'edition francaise, meme dans 1'etat avant les numeros. 

The title of the work in which, in spite of the French explanations at bottom of 
each engraving, the early impressions are said to have appeared is : 

De Voornaamste Gevallen van den wonderlyken Don Quichot, door den beroemden 
PICART den Romein, 1 En andere voornaame Meesters, in XXXI. Kunstplaaten, na de 
Uitmuntende Schilderyen van COYPEL, in't Koper gebragt : Beschreeven op een' vryen 
en vrolyken trant, door JACOB CAMPO WEYERMAN ; etc. In's Hage By Pieter de Hondt, 

The French title-page reads as follows : 

Les Printipales Avantures de fadmirable Don Quichotte, representees en figures par 
COYPEL, PICART' le Remain, et autres habiles maitres : avec les explications des XXXI 
planches de cette magnifique collection, tirees de I'original espagnol etc. A La Haye, Ches 
Pierre de Hondt, M.DCC.XL VI. 4. 

On the title-page (also that in Dutch just cited) is a pretty vignette signed 
J. v. S. fecit, representing the Don and Sancho on foot, with sheep, and a windmill, 
surmounted by a head, two of the sails holding a club and a sword ; another charming 
engraving, signed J. v. SCHLEY, del. et sculp. 1746, but without reference to the text, 
heads the dedication on p. 3. 

Here is the account furnished by the editor, in his Avertissement, of these : 

Estampes qui en representoient agreablement les principales Avantures. 

Des divers Recueils de cette derniere Espece, celui, que le celebre CHARLES COYPEL nous a donne 
vers le Terns de la Majorite de Loui's XV. est sans contredit le meilleur & le plus estimable, en ce 
qu'il n'y a rien neglige, nonseulement par rapport aux Regies de son Art, mais meme par rapport 
aux Moeurs, Coutumes, Habillemens, & autres Usages d'Espagne, d'ou il a pris un Soin tout particulier 
de s'en faire envoier des Desseins, pris expres sur les Lieux-memes, & que de 1'Aveu mdme des 
Espagnols il a parfaitement bien representez. Aussi les Gravures, qu'il en publia alors, furent-elles si 
bien re9ues, si generalement recherches, & si promtement enlevees, qu'elles ne tarderent pas a devenir 
rares, & consequemment d'un Prix excessif. 

Pour ne point laisser ainsi manquer une Collection si agreable & si generalement estimee, et 
singulierement afin de pouvoir en accommoder les Curieux a beaucoup meilleur Compte, le celebre 
BERNARD PICART le Remain forma le Dessin de la reduire en Planches de Forme in quarto, & en 
executa meme ainsi une Douzaine. Mais, sa Mort, survenue trop tot en 1733, tant pour le Public 
en general, que pour sa Famille & ses Amis en particulier, n'ai'ant pas permis qu'il put remplir lui-meme 
cette utile Entreprise, quelques-uns de ses Eleves, & divers autres bons Graveurs, viennent enfin de la 
conduire heureusement a sa Fin : & c'est cette belle & magnifique Collection que nous offrons 
presentement au Public. 

Elle consiste en XXXI Planches, qui representent effectivement, ainsi que le promet notre litre, 
les principales & les plus interessantes Avantures de ['admirable Don Quichotte, dont on verra 
particulierement les Sujets dans la Table que nous avons placee i la Fin de ce Volume : &, afin 
d'en procurer la parfaite Intelligence & ceux qui pourroient n'etre point au Fait de cette divertissante 

1 This is an error. ETIENNE PICART, the father of BERNARD, was styled " Le Remain ". 

2 From the wording of the above title-page one would infer that some of the plates had been 
designed by Picart. This is, of course, not the case. 


& inimitable Histoire, nous avons ajoutS a chacune d'elles une Explication Historique, tiree de 1'Original 
meme de Miguel de Cervantes ; en sorte que nous avons lieu de croire, qu'il ne reste rien a desirer 
pour 1'entiere Satisfaction des Curieux. 

Ceux d'entre eux, qui seroient d'assez bon Gout pour vouloir substituer nos Figures a celles 
de la belle Edition Espagnole de Don Quichotte faite h Londres (art. 39), ou, par une Inattention 
aussi inexcusable qu'incomprehensible, Ton n'a represent^ que les Attitudes & Coutumes Angloises 
au lieu d'Espagnoles, pourront les avoir separment de grand ou de mo'ien Papier, notre Edition ne 
consistant precisement qu'en ces deux Sortes, & meme qu'en fort petit Nombre de la premiere. 

The same plates are found in the editions : A Liege Chez J, F. Bassompierre, 
M.DCC.LXXVI. ; and A Bruxelles Chez B. L. Francq, 1795. 


A set of 19 ? round medallion engravings, size 5f inches = 135 mm., not signed, 
executed for decorative purposes, not to illustrate any edition of Don Quixote ; they 
are not original in design, seventeen of those before me are copied from the set 
noticed in art. 22, viz., COYPEL 15, TRESMOLIER i, LE BAS i, COCHIN fils i, 
sometimes turned, frequently with a less number of figures than in the original 
engravings ; the source whence the nineteenth is taken I do not know. As these 
engravings are very scarce, and as there should, probably, be more than eighteen, I 
note the subjects of those before me, comparing them with, and borrowing the titles 
from, the original set.

A set of 24 engravings, including a frontispiece, and Don Quixote in his study, but 
without lettering, size 5 J by 3 J inches = 133 by 88 mm., all signed I. VANDERBANK 
inv., G. VANDER GUCHT sculp.; the frontispiece has " Frontispiece V. i " underneath, 
and 'the other engravings "V." and "P." indications, at bottom ; they are from the 
same designs as those of the 4to edition (art. 39), and correspond with the following 
numbers of that series, viz. : i, 2, 4, 7, 9, u, 12, 14, 15, 18, 21, 27, 30, 31 turned, 33,

VANDERBANK (art. 39); it has, at top, "Vol. i. P. i. Frontispiece," but no 
signature. The engravings, size 4 by ?\ inches = 103 by 64 mm., have, at top, 
"Vol." and "Page" indications, and underneath, enclosed with lines, descriptions 
in English; they are unsigned, and are copied, and generally turned, from the 
engravings after COYPEL and others (art. 22). The engraving is bad and very 
irregular, some of the plates seem even to be unfinished ; altogether a worthless set.

A set of 3 engraved title-pages, and 32 engravings : The engraved title-pages 
are allegorical and vignetted, without volume indications ; each design used twice ; 
they are signed DEMEUSE fecit. The engravings, surrounded with a line, measure 
4j by 2j inches = 108 by 63 mm. ; the first twenty-four are from COYPEL'S designs, 
turned from the original engravings described in art. 22, and are signed, for the most 
part, DEMEUSE fecit, generally within the design; they refer to Don Quixote; the 
latter eight, unsigned, belong to the continuation ; all have " Tom " or " Tome "

artistic value. Done for

A set of 16 (?) engravings, size about io| by 14! inches = 268 by 375 mm., 
with a space underneath, about i inch = 25 mm., for title and descriptions, which 
latter are in French and in Spanish, and occupy from 6 to 8 lines each ; each plate 
bears the name of the publisher, "A Paris chez Radigues(or Radigue) Rue St. Jacque 
auec Priuilege du Roy"; no date; one only is signed; the first ten only are 
numbered, in top left corner. As this set, which may perhaps require more than 
sixteen engravings, is very uncommon, I specify each plate separately : 

1. " Dontguixot (sic) Reuenant des montagnes wires tome premier chapitre 2." 

2. " La princesse de Micomicon prie dontguichot de la Remettre sur son trone tome 2 
chapitre 3."

(16.) " L'avanture de la Barque Enchantee. chap. XXIX." This is the only one 
signed; it bears the signature of (left) RICAR delineauit, (right) ANTONIUS RADIGUES 
Minor Sculpsit. Although the Don holds his sword in his left hand, the drawing is 
above the average. 

The titles and indications given above are verbatim and, as they appear on 
each plate. The incorrectness of some of them is not confined to peculiarities of 
spelling or printer's blunders ; No. 7, for instance, in spite of its indication, repre- 
sents the Don suspended by his wrist to a window, and Rosinante passing from 
under him. 

Rarity is the exclusive merit of this series, of which the drawing is bad, the 
engraving worse, and the paper used of the vilest description. 

The same engravings also exist with the publisher's name now altered to 
"A Paris chez Jac. (or J., or without initial) Chereau Rue St. Jacque avec priuilege 
du Roy". 


A set of 20 (?) engravings, size, exclusive of lettering underneath, about i\ by 
I2j inches = 198 by 312 mm., unsigned ; four have: "A Paris chez Crepy rue S*. 
Jacques " ; six have : " A Paris rue S'. Jacques " only ; the remaining ten have neither 
name nor address of publisher. Some are with, some without, Don Quichotte under- 
neath ; but all have quotations, in French and Spanish, of from two to eight lines. 
They are sometimes found coloured. As I presume the set to require more than 
twenty pieces, I give the references on those before me : Tom. I. ch. 3 ; Tome I. 
ch. VIII; Tom. I. ch. 22; Lib. III. cap. XVI; Tom. 3. chap. 20; liv. 4. C. 29; 
Liv. V. c. 10 ; Lib. 5. Cap. 14 ; Liv. V. ch. XVII ; Tom. V. ch. 19 ; Liv. VI. Chap. 
XXI ; Liv. VI. ch. XXVI ; Liv. VI. ch. 30 ; Liv. 6. Ch. 31 ; Liv. VII. Chap. XXXIV ; 
Liv. VII. ch. XLI ; Liv. 7. chap. 44 ; Livre. 7. chap. 47 ; Liv. VIII. chap. LIII. ; Liv. 
VIII. chap. 73. These engravings were probably published about the same time as 
those of Radigues (art. 49), and in competition with him, but are generally inferior to 
his work. Exception however may be made in favour of the four which bear CREPY'S 
name, and which were no doubt engraved by him ; they are superior to the others. 


A set of i frontispiece (see also art. 1 14), and 27 engravings, size about 9 by 7 
inches = 230 by 180 mm., all signed by the inventor, F. HAYMAN, and by the 


following engravers : C. GRIGNION 12, G. SCOTIN 6, I. S. MOLLER 2, RAVENET 2, 
S. RAVENET 2, S. F. RAVENET 4; all have " Vol." and " pag." indications. Of this 
bold and effective series two will be found reproduced in the Iconografia under Nos. 
30 and 74. In his Wine and Walnuts, I., 177, W. H. PYNE mentions " COLLINS

EDWARD DAYES remarks : 

HAYMAN'S manner is decisive, and firm, but hard ; and his drawing is incorrect ; yet . . . His 
pictures of Don Quixote were so well received, that he had an order to paint two copies for Madrid. 
If his manner was not pure, he has the merit of originality, and may be considered as the English 

Hayman's original drawings are in the print room at the British Museum. 


A set of i engraved title-page, and 32 engravings : The title-page, which has 
in the centre "Histoire de Don Quichotte," is allegorical, without volume indication, 
and is signed, outside the design, EBEN sc. The engravings, surrounded by a thick 
line, measure 4^ by 2 if inches = 118 by 72 mm. ; they have all, at top, " Tome" 
and " page " indications, but no descriptions ; all not are signed ; some bear the 
signature of IOH. MICH. EBEN sc. Francfurth, others I. M. EBEN sc., with, or without, 
the name of the town ; the first twenty-four, which refer to Don Quixote, are from 
COYPEL'S designs, turned from the original engravings noticed in art. 22 ; the 
remaining eight belong to the continuation. Done for

A set of 2 allegorical title-vignettes, and 43 wood-cuts, size about z\ by 3 J inches 
= 57 by 82 mm., unsigned. Each title-vignette is used twice. The cuts are placed 
at the heads of the chapters, and have descriptions above them, except that at 
Vol. II., chapt. XXX., of which the description is underneath, and that at Vol. III., 
chapt. I., which is placed in the text, and has no description. These wood-cuts are 
rough, crude, and more curious than beautiful. They are imitated, in many instances, 
from those of the edition of Madrid, 1741 (art. 40). Done for

Each volume has "a double title-page. In spite of the indication on the title-page, 
there are only 43 cuts. A specimen is given in the Iconografla No. 47. The same 
blocks were again used in the edition, Madrid MDCCLXXXII. Par D. Manuel 
Martin, calle de la Cruz, donde se hallard. Con las licencias necesarias, with the following 
slight deviations : the cut at Vol. II., chapt. XXX., has the description above it like 
the others ; that at Vol. II., chapt. LIL, is omitted, and is replaced by the one belonging 
to Vol. III., chapt. XXXV., which is consequently used twice, making up the 43 cuts. 


A set of 31 engravings, including a frontispiece, and Don Quixote in his study, 
size about 5^- by 3^ inches = 130 by 80 mm., numbered, at top, " Plate i " to 31 ; 
the frontispiece has, also at top, "Vol. I. Frontispiece," and the other engravings 
" Vol." and " facing pa." indications ; they are all unsigned, but the designs are 
those of I. VANDERBANK, and they are probably engraved by G. VANDER GUCHT ; 
they correspond with the following numbers of the 4to edition (art. 39), viz. : I, 2, 4, 
7, 9, ii, 12, 14, 15, 18, 20, 21, 23, 24, 25, 27, 30, 31 turned, 33, 34, 37, 38, 39, 48 
turned, 50, 54 turned, 56, 60 turned, 61, 62 turned, 68. In comparing this series with 
that in the 8vo edition of 1749 (art. 45), it would seem that twenty-four of the plates 
are the same, somewhat reduced in size, to suit the smaller form of the book ; the 
following Nos., however, are new, and are not found in the set issued in 1749, viz. : 
Plates n, 13, 14, 15, 20, 25, 27 ; this is almost proved by the fact that the five which 
are turned in the edition of 1749 are also turned, and the only ones turned, in this.

A set of i engraved title-page, and 31 engravings : The title-page, size 6J by 3^ 
inches = 160 by 95 mm., has, in the centre, " Don Miguel Cervantes Historic von 
Don Quichotte," without any further indication, and is signed, underneath, outside 
the design, C. F. BOETIUS del. et fc., in spite of which it is distinctly copied from 
that signed EBEN in the edition of Francfort, M.DCC.LVII. (art. 52), but much 
improved and better engraved. The engravings, surrounded by frames, measure, with 
the frames, 5f by 3^ inches = 145 by 87 mm., and are copied, and generally turned, 
from those after COYPEL and others (art. 22), although the names of these artists are 
not given ; they have underneath, inside the frames, descriptions in German, and 
"Thl" and " S" or " Seite" indications; only three are signed, STOCK, M. STOCK,

top, and is numbered, underneath, I. The engravings, numbered also underneath, 
II. to XXXII., are enclosed by a thick line, and have, underneath, within the line, 
descriptions in French, but no vol. or page indications ; they measure, from line

this portrait and that of the London edition of 1738 (art. 39) : 

En una edicion hecha a tanta costa y con tanto esmero era muy justo que se pusiese un retrato 
verdadero de Cervantes, siempre que se pudiese hallar. Practicaronse las diligencias possibles para 
descubrir los que hicieron Don JUAN DE J/UREGUI y FRANCISCO PACHECO en vida del autor ; pero

todas en vano. Tal vez han perecido por injuria de los tiempos, y por el descuido que generalmente 
ha habido en conserva los retratos de los hombres ilustres de la nacion, 6 acaso estaran cubiertos de 
polvo y abandonados en poder de quien ignore que los tiene, 6 no sepa apreciarlos. 

Despues con noticia que tuvo 4a Academia, de que en Sevilla habia un retrato antiguo de 
Cervantes en poder del Conde del Aguila, Academico honorario, le escribio por medio de su Secretario, 
pidindole que permitiese sacar una copia de el. Pero este caballero tuvo la generosidad de regalarsele 
& la Academia, y remitirle inmediatamente, diciendo, que le habia comprado en esta Corte algunos 
anos habia a un comerciante de pinturas, el qual se le vendio por de ALONSO DEL ARCO, y que visto 
despues por algunos inteligentes habian convenido en que era de la misma mano. Este pintor, 
segun Palomino en su Museo Pictorico, florecio en el siglo pasado, y murio el primer ano del presente 
a los setenta y cinco de su edad. 

Luego que vino el retrato se advirtio, que era tan parecido al de la edicion de Londres de 1738, 
que el uno debia ser precisamente copia del otro : y aunque la pintura manifestaba bastantemente 
no serlo de la estampa, como el Doctor Oldfield en las advertencias que puso a dicha edicion asegura, 
que por mas solicitud que se puso, no se hallo retrato alguno de Miguel dc Cervantes, y al pie de la 
estampa se dice que es sacado por el mismo, esto es por la relacion que el hace de su persona en sus 
obras, para salir de esta duda se dio a reconocer a los pintores de Camara de S. M. y Directores 
de pintura de la Real Academia de San Fernando Don Antonio Gonzalez y Don Andres de la Calleja 
practices en el conocimiento de pinturas antiguas, y entrambos, despues de haber cotejado la pintura 
con la estampa de Londres, declararon por escrito : Que el retrato pintado es mncho mas antiguo que 
la estampa, porque el lienzo donde esta, por su vejez sc conoce no ser de este siglo, como tambien por el 
rancio de los colores, y ser el estilo de las escuelas de Vicencio Carducho y Eugenia Caxes, que jlorecieron 
en tiempo dc Felipe IV, y juntamcntc se reconoce estar retocado nuevamente todo el vestido, y mas de la 
mitad de la gorgucra del lado derecho, y algunas pinceladas en el rostra ; pero el fondo principal del 
rostra y gorguera es del tiempo dicho. Tambien se vc, que el rostra de la estampa esta sacado puntual- 
mente par el pintado, porque a la impresion de la lamina resulta la estampa al contrario, y si hubicran 
copiado dicho retrato por la estampa, estuvieran ambos a un mismo lado. Tambien nos parece 
(continuan dichos pintores) no ser retrato voluntario (el pintado) por tener los efectos del natural en 
el claro y obscuro, que resulta del natural mismo, aunque se notan algunos defectos en el dibuxo, y 
como es la boca diminuta, y la nina del ojo ixquierdo mas circular que la derecha, dcbiendo ser al 
contrario, porque siendo esferico el ojo, debe ser mas ovada la nina del lado que escorza mas : y esto 
mismo prueba estar sacado dicho retrato for otro mejor y mas antiguo. 

No es facil conciliar esta declaracion con lo que dice la estampa de Londres, y el Doctor Oldfield 
en sus advertencias. Lo cierto es, que no parece natural, que un retrato imaginario sacado de una 
mera relacion, qual se supone el de Londres, pueda tener una tan perfecta uniformidad con otro que 
no sea copia de el, 6 al contrario, como tiene la estampa inglesa con la pintura espanola. Esta es 
sin duda mucho mas antigua que aquella, aun quando sea de Alonso del Arco, y no del tiempo de 
Carducho y Caxes, como dice la anterior declaracion : la qual, y el convenir perfectamente dicha 
pintura con todas las senas que Cervantes da de si mismo, producen una conjetura muy racional y 
fundada, de que es copia de algun buen original hecho en vida de Cervantes, y acaso del de Jauregui, 
o Pacheco arriba mencionados. 

The frontispieces are in reality but two, the one serving for "Tom." i y 2, the 
other for "Tom." 3 y 4, as duly indicated above each design; both are signed ; the 
former is designed by ANTONIO CARNICERO and engraved by FERNANDO SELMA, and 
dated Madrid, 1780 ; the latter designed by PEDRO ARNAL, Arquitecto, 1 engraved 
by JUAN DE LA CRUZ, Geografo de S.M. ; their size is nearly identical with the 
portrait above mentioned. 

1 COHEN gives this indication of the artist's profession as a separate proper name. 


The thirty-one : engravings, about the same size as the portrait, are all signed, 
and bear, at top, " Tom." and " Page " indications ; they are designed by ANTONIO 
A. GIL i ; fifteen are dated Madrid, 1777, 1778, 1779, 1780. In spite of the 
important position which these engravings hold among the illustrations to Don 
Quixote, great praise cannot be bestowed on them ; they are generally stiff and 
conventional in design, without power, grace, or movement ;* nor is the engraving, 
as a rule, good. They are valuable, however, on account of the costume. On this 
point the "Academia" remarks: 

Para que estas ademas de la bondad del dibuxo y grabado, tuviesen tambien el me'rito de la 
propiedad en los trages, se ban tornado en el Real Palacio nuevo, y en el del Buen Retiro de varias 
pinturas y retratos del tiempo, en que supone Cervantes haber existido los personages de su fabula. 
Las armas y armadura de Don Quixote se ban dibuxado por los originales del mismo tiempo, que 
existen en la armeria del Rey nuestro Senor. Y para los asuntos de las lminas se han escogido las 
aventuras mas principales, cuidando de representarlas en aquel punto, 6 accion, que las distingue y 
caracteriza mas. 

In the several copies of the book which have passed through my hands the 
engravings are without descriptions. I have seen, however, a set of the engravings 
without letter-press, but with descriptions underneath them ; these, according to 
BRUNET, are supposed to be early impressions. 

Three of the engravings are reproduced in the Iconografia, viz., Nos. 10, 88, 
and 100. I add the opinion of Mr. H. E. WATTS : 

The plates were designed by the most famous Spanish artists of the day. They are a little less 
grotesque, because more Spanish, than in previous editions, and are fairly well engraved ; but still 
absurdly false, affected, and inappropriate, the artists appearing not to have given themselves the 
trouble of reading the book illustrated. The portrait, professing to be taken from an original picture 
in the possession of the Conde del Aguila, is merely a reproduction of KENT'S imaginary picture oi 
Cervantes (see art. 39), with a few details and flourishes introduced. 

The twenty-five headpieces and twenty tailpieces, all signed, a few only having 
special reference to the text, are beautiful in design and delicate in execution ; the 
the engravers F. S. 14, JUAN MINGUET 12, J. PALOMIO 6, S. BRIEVA 4, MARIANO 
BRANDI 3, J. J. FABREGAT 2, J. BALLESTER i ; two are signed only by S. BRikvA, one 

The thirteen ornamental letters, which bear no signatures, are finely engraved, 
and correspond well with the headpieces and tailpieces. 

1 SIEURIN, strangely enough, gives no description of this notable set, but he has the following, 
which I take to be in error : " 22 gravures in-12 et un portrait de 1'edition d'Ibarra," or relating to 
another set.

A set of i portrait, and 31 (?) engravings, same size and designs as those in the 
4 edition of Madrid, Ibarra, 1780 (art. 72). I have before me a broken set only ; the 
portrait is turned and unsigned ; the engravings, of which I possess sixteen, are 
generally, not always, turned, and bear the following signatures : JOSEPH DEL 
CARNIZERO (sic), BERNARDO BARRENCO (sic), as designers ; as engravers, LAVALLE"E, 
LEROY, CHAPUY, TASAERT ; and as printers, in the middle, between the signatures of 
artist and engraver, LANGLOIS and LE ROY. My set is coloured. I presume that 
the date of production is not long after the Madrid original. 


A set of i portrait, 6 title-vignettes, and 24 engravings : The portrait, size 
5i 3 F by 2f inches = 132 by 70 mm., is signed and dated D. CHODOWIECKI del., D. 
BERGER Sc. 1780 ; the head and shoulders of Cervantes, with large ruff round the 
neck, are in a round frame, surrounded by a ribbon scroll ; underneath are a wreath, 
sword, spear, helmet, shield, gloves, and spurs, the whole resting on a base, upon 
which is inscribed the name Cervantes ; it is well engraved. The six engravings on 
title-pages, which are vignetted, are signed (Erster Theil) D. CHODOWIECKI del., D. 
BERGER sc. ; (zweiter) D. CHODOWIECKI del., D. BERGER sculpsit ; (the four others) 
D. CHOD. del., D. BERGER sc. ; all have underneath, left, " Th." indications. The 
engravings, numbered at top, I. to XXIV., with "Th." indications, measure from 4^ 
to 5! by 2f inches = 123 to 131 by 70 mm. ; they are all signed D. CHODOWIECKI del., 
D. BERGER Sc., and dated, the first twelve, 1779, the remainder 1780. Done for

The fifteen words from " Aus " to " BERTUCH " appear in the title of the first 
volume only. 


A set of i portrait, 4 (or 6) vignettes, and 29 (?) engravings, designed by D. 
CHODOWIECKI, engraved by D. BERGER, of which seventeen are for Don Quixote and 
twelve for the continuation of AVELLANEDA. Thus the note in the Iconografia, 
where two of the engravings are reproduced under Nos. 36 and 99, both of which 


are identical in design with two in the set of Weimar, 1775 (art 69). I have seen 
one only of this set, which measures 5 by 2^-J- inches = 127 by 69 mm., and is 
signed and dated D. CHODOWIECKI del., D. BERGER Sc. 1781. The title-page given 
in the Iconografla, as belonging to this set, is that (with several errors) of Leipzig, 
1780 (art. 74), which appears to be false, as the engravings date one year later 
than the title-page. 


SIEURIN notes : " 37 gravures in-8, dont 29 petites et 8 in-8, grav6es d'apres 
CHODOWIECKI ". I have not seen this set. 


A set of 4 coloured engravings, surrounded by a line, size lof by 15^ inches = 
275 by 385 mm., signed SCHALL pin'., DESCOURTIS sculp*., with the title Don Quichotte, 
five lines of quotation, in French, and "A Paris chez Descourtis, Qua! des Augustins, 
No. 31," underneath. The subjects are: (i) Quixote knighted ; (2) Sancho pleading 
with three peasant women for his master ; (3) Quixote and Sancho on the 
wooden horse, upon which they were to be lifted into the air ; (4) The Don tied by 
the hand to a window, his horse walking away from under him. MM. PORTALIS and 
BERALDI qualify them with justice " fort mauvais ". 


A set of 1 6 (?) engravings, enclosed with double lines, size, from line to line, 
about 6J by g inches = 170 by 240 mm., unsigned ; taken from the designs of 
Coypel (art. 22). These rough engravings were executed towards the end of the 
last century, not for an edition of Don Quixote, but for decorative purposes. Possibly 
more than sixteen are required to complete the series ; consequently I describe those 
in my possession in the order in which the adventures depicted occur in the book : 

(1) Don Quichotte conduit par la Folie, etc. This and all other titles below, and 
" No. 307 " above, and within the lines ; above, right, and outside the lines, the

main subject.

the middle of the plate ; in each corner, top, a tree ; in bottom corner, left, a man, 
a woman with a baby in her arms, and a tree ; in bottom corner, right, a man and 
a tree. 

(13) Memorable Jugement de Sancho. Above, within the lines, " Tom 4. ch. 45 " ; 
below, outside the lines, " JParis," and publisher's name and address as above.

A set of 28 engravings, size about 4^ by 3 inches = 115 by 75 mm., all numbered 
at top ; the first four bear no signature ; all the others are signed DE ST AUBIN sc. ; 
the first twenty are from the designs of COYPEL, generally turned from the original 
engravings (art. 22) ; they relate to Don Quixote ; the remaining eight belong to the 
continuation. The set has no artistic merit. Done for

After Vol. I. the impress is, En Salisbury : En la Imprenta de Edvardo Easton. 
M.DCC.LXXXI. The same engraved title-page is used for .the different volumes, 
with the oval engraving at bottom sometimes changed. This is the edition : con 
Anotadones, Indices, y varias Lecdones: par el Reverendo D. JUAN BOWLE, A.M. S.S.A.L. 
en Set's Tomos. There are in reality 3 vols. only. The dedication to Francis Earl ot 
Huntington is engraved and illustrated with a view, signed PAGE sculp., which has 
no reference to Don Quixote. A map of Spain, signed PAGE. " grabo en Londres," 
serves as frontispiece to Vol. I. 


A set of 16 engravings, in fancy borders, size, inside the borders, 4^ by 2^ = 
118 by 72 mm. ; all designed and signed, outside the borders, by STOTHARD ; engraved 
and signed by WALKER 5, HEATH 3, ANGUS 3, GREGNION 2, BLAKE 2, BIRREL i ; all

27, May 4, n, 18, 25, June I, 8, 15, 22, 1782 ; they are all numbered, in Roman 
characters, I. to XVI., which correspond with dates of publication, but not with the 
order in which the plates follow in the story ; the borders are all of the same design, 
but vary in engraving. A very pretty set, although quite English in character.

Two engravings, entitled Sancho Panfa, in each of which that worthy is twice 
represented in a different attitude ; four figures in all ; each figure is vignetted, and 
measures about 4 by i| inches = 100 by 45 mm., unsigned ; printed in sepia ; 
published in The Artist's Repository, Vol. I., 1788, and drawn, we may presume, by 


FRANCIS FITZGERALD, drawing master, to illustrate one of his lectures on the Polite 
Arts. The drawing is good and the attitudes expressive. At p. 212 of the volume 
they are thus described : 


These plates exhibit that celebrated character in four different situations, (i.) offering combat 
to his antagonist the barber, wherein we remark that how bold soever his fists may appear, the rest 
of his figure preserves a considerable distance, wisely placing generalship in securing a retreat ; (2.) his 
prowess alarmed at the oracular head ; (3.) laughing at one of his master's vagaries ; (4.) endeavouring 
to maintain the judicial character of the governor of Baratana. These plates refer to LECTURE VIII. 


A set of 12 engravings, size about 4^ by 3^ inches = 120 by 80 mm., unsigned ; 
all have descriptions of the subject at foot ; four have, at the top, "vol." indications, 
and the word "Frontispiece"; the others have, at the top, "Vol." and "Page" 
indications ; they are further subscribed " Published as the Act directs i Sept'.

The composition, containing twelve figures, and Rosinante, is very happy, and the 
engraving fine and soft. This plate is scarce. 


A set of i portrait, 5 engraved and illustrated title-pages, and 17 l engravings : 
The portrait, which is oval and surrounded by a line, measures 2f by i\ inches 
= 72 by 59 mm. ; it has, underneath, the name of Cervantes, and is further 
subscribed, " Engraved by E. MACKENZIE from a Painting of Sir JOSHUA REYNOLDS 
R A. Printed for C. Cooke, Jan T . 9, 1821 " ; it is poorly engraved in stipple, and 
is not found, as its date indicates, in the first edition of the book for which the 
engraved title-pages and engravings were done. The engraved title-pages and 
engravings have served at least three times, their indications, dates, signatures, etc., 
changed ; to avoid confusion, it will be necessary to note each one separately. The 
title-pages : 

Vol. I. " R. CORBOULD del., W. HAWKINS sculp. Embellish'd under the 
direction of C. Cooke, June 25, 1796. Don Quixote and the Shepherd, vide Vol. i 
p. 32." Same subject, with alteration of date to 1820, and page to 70.

Vol. IV. " R. CORBOULD del'., W. HAWKINS sculp*. Embellish'd under the 
direction of C. Cooke, Oct r . 15, 1796, Vide Volume 4, page 68." The subject, not 
indicated, is that of the birds flying out of the cave of Montesinos. Same subject, 
with Vol. III., date 1820, Volume III., page 188.

Thus reads the printed title-page. The wording of the engraved title-page is as 
follows : 

Don Quixote, Vol. I. forming part of Cooke's Pocket Edition of Select Novels, or 
Novelist's Entertaining Library containing a Complete Collection of Universally Approved 
Histories Adventures, Tales drv. by the most Esteemed Authors. The remainder of the 
wording relates to the illustration. 

The same series of engravings, with the portrait, probably for the first time, 
were also afterwards issued without text, together with illustrations from two other 
works, with the following undated title : 

Cooke's Illustrations to Don Quixote, The Rambler, and Hudibras. 


A set of i portrait, i frontispiece, and 20 engravings : The portrait, surrounded 
by a single and a double line, measures, from outer line to line, 55 by 3^ inches = 
I 33 by 88 mm., and is signed, within the lines, JOSEPH DEL CASTILLO la invento y 
dibuxo, F. BARTOLLOZZI sculp'. ; it represents Cervantes at a table, writing ; on a 
tablet underneath, distinct from the portrait, is engraved the name Mig 1 . de Cervantes 
Saavedra. The frontispiece and engravings, also enclosed by a single and a double 
line, measure, between the outer lines, 5^ by 3^ inches = 140 by 84 mm. The 



former, destined for the third volume, has, at top, " III " and " Face Title," and 
bears the signatures, below, of ANTONIO CARNICERO del*., W. BROMLEY sulp'. ; the 
latter are signed by the following artists : ANTONIO CARNICERO 14, BERNARDO 
BARRANCO 6 (art. 72) ; these signatures are however quite arbitrary, some of the 
designs bearing Barranco's name being by A. Carnicero ; further some are by I. and 
A. CARNICERO from the edition of Madrid, 1782 (art. 83) ; they are engraved and 
signed by W. BROMLEY 18, JOHN HALL 2. The engraving is good. Done for

SMOLLETT, M.D. Ornamented with engravings, by the first Masters, from the Designs of 
the Madrid Royal Academy, etc. In Four Volumes. Dublin : John Chambers. 1796. 8. 


A set of i portrait, 6 engravings in the text, 1 48 full-page engravings : The 
portrait, in a frame, under which is a tablet on which is engraved Miguel de 
Cervantes Saavedra, measures 35 by if inches = 90 by 48 mm., and is signed J. 
LOPEZ ENGUID S . del., T. LOPEZ ENGUID S . sc. ; it is similar to that of the edition of 
Madrid, Ibarra, 1780 (art. 72). The engravings in the text, or headpieces, one to 
each volume, are vignetted, and measure about I by i-f inches = 27 by 48 mm. ; 
four are signed T. L. E., the other two are without signature. The full-page 
engravings, all in frames, with a tablet below bearing descriptions, in Spanish, of 
the subject of each plate, measure about 3$ by -2\ inches = 92 by 54 mm. ; they are 
all designed by ANTONIO RODRIGUEZ, whose abbreviated signature they bear at the 
bottom of the tablet ; they are also all signed, generally in an abbreviated form, 
by the following engravers: T. L. ENGUIDANOS 16, MANUEL ALBUERNE 8, PEDRO 
VAZQUEZ 2, M. BRANDI 2, BLAS AMETLLER i. Two of these very pretty engravings 
are facsimiled in the Iconografia under Nos. 27 and 68. Done for

employed in the edition of Zaragoza. Imprenta de Polo y Monge, Hermanos. 1832. 
Small 8, 4 vols. See also art. 97. 


A set of 2 portraits of Cervantes, 31 engravings, 2 headpieces, 3 maps : One 
portrait, a bust, clothed, a ruff round the neck, and surmounted by a wreath, 
standing on a square pedestal, on which is inscribed " Miguel de Cervantes 

1 In the Iconografia no mention is made either of the portrait or the engravings in the text ; 
" 48 laminas " only are noted.

size 5f by 4 inches = 143 by 103 mm. ; signed RAF L . XIMENO delineavit, P. 
DUFLOS sculpgit. The other portrait, size 5^ by 4 inches = 140 by 103 mm., in 
which Cervantes, in costume of the period, and at full length, is offering his book 
to a goddess seated on clouds, pointing to the temple of fame, behind whom is 
Mercury ; there are three nude figures reclining on the ground, to left ; it is signed 
MONNET delineavit, P RE DUFLOS sculpcit. Thirty-one 1 engravings, same measure- 
ments as above-mentioned portraits, are designed by AUG". NAVARRO 18, RAPHAEL 
XIMENO (including a bust-portrait of Dulcinea) 5, P. CAMARON 5, J. CAMARON i, 
PARET i, and one signed P T . ; engraved by MORENO TEJADA ro, PIERRE DUFLOS 18, 
Femme DUFLOS 3. The signatures vary slightly, sometimes initials only are used ; 
in one or two instances TEJADA signs MORENO simply ; on one engraving, or rather 
one state of the engraving, P. CAMARON is spelt with K ; two are dated, in some 
states only, 1797. The signatures, sometimes reversed, are below, outside the 
design, except in a few instances where DUFLOS will be found within the design. 
These engravings, including the two portraits, exist in three states, viz., signed, 
unsigned, and in pure etchings (eaux-fortes). The two head-pieces in the text, 
heading the Prologos, measure 2 by 3^ inches = 50 by 85 mm., and are signed PARET 
del. MORENO sc'. ; the former is dated 1796, the latter is undated, and partially 
vignetted (a claire-voie). The three maps are (i) Demonstration de la celebre Cueva 
de Montesinos, with Vista exterior de la entrada, signed PARET del. on same sheet ; 
(2) Piano Geografico de las Lagunas de Ruidera y curso que hacen sus aguas sobrantes 
con el nombre de Rio Guadiana ; (3) Carta Geografica de los Viages de Don Quixote y 
sitios de sus Aventuras ; this latter map is coloured. Done for

The same series of plates will be found in the edition, Madrid, en casa del editor 
Calle de Preciados 68, 1853. 8, 4 vols. 

Although these engravings rank among the finest produced in Spain, their 
composition is not always happy, nor their drawing invariably correct. The figures 
are too lanky, and they lack movement. The costume, however, is fairly correct. 

Mr. H. E. WATTS remarks : "The nuevas estampas promised are by Navarro, of 
a hideousness equal to any of the old ". 

1 " 20 laminas " only are mentioned in the Iconografia, where two of the engravings are 
reproduced, Nos. 43 and 64. 

2 This edition is noted by COHEN, col. 104, as with " 33 figures assez belles," most of the 
names being incorrectly spelt. M. E. CROTTET, col. 13, corrects the mistakes. 



A set of i portrait, and 24 engravings : The portrait, which measures 5$- by 3 
inches = 130 by 77 mm., represents Cervantes in an oval frame, against which 
leans, to left, an oval portrait of Don Quixote, and, to right, a lyre, etc. ; underneath, 
a reclining girl at a fountain with two sheep and a dog; it is signed, with the 
point, by both designer and engraver, viz. F. M. QUEVERDO del., and C. S. GAUCHER 
eff. incid. See art. 369. The engravings, which are surrounded by a strong line, 
enclosing, underneath, a space for inscription, which is however left blank, measure, 
from line to line, 4$ by 3 inches = 125 by 77 mm. ; they are numbered, at top, II. 
to XXV, the portrait, although unnumbered, counting as I. ; Plates Nos. VII., XVII., 
XVIII., XXIII. are signed, by the point, and faintly, J. D. COULET, the others are 
unsigned ; they are bad, reduced copies, sometimes turned, of the set by COYPEL and 
others (art. 22). Done for

A set of 9 engravings, of various sizes ; plates i and 3 to 8 measure about 5^ by 
4 inches = 130 by 103 mm., plate 2, 5^ by 2f- inches = 135 by 75 mm., plate 9, 4 by 
4! inches = 101 by 114; they have all, at the top, the words " Don Quixote" and 
are all numbered "PI." i to 8 and "N. IX"; the first eight have "Page" indi- 
cations, the ninth has none; all are signed W. HOGARTH Inv*; plates i to 8 are 
engraved and signed by I. MILLS, plate IX by W. SKELTON ; all have, underneath, 
"Published March 1798". I have seen proofs of some of these plates without 
this indication. Published in Vol. III. of Hogarth Illustrated by John Ireland. Pub. 
June i, 1791, by J. & J. Boydell etc. 8, 3 vols. The third volume, or supplement, 
dates 1798. Third edition, 1812. 

JOHN IRELAND observes concerning these : 

Nine prints for Don Quixote. The first of these prints (The First Sally) is copied from a plate in 
Jarvis's quarto translation of this inimitable work ; it has neither painter nor engraver's name, but 
carries indisputable marks of the pencil and burine of Hogarth. The second (The Inn-Keeper), is 
from an unfinished print in my possession, which I think by the same artist. The six which follow 
were designed for Lord Carteret's Spanish edition, published in the year 1738, but as they are etched in 
a bold and masterly style, I suppose the noble peer did not think they were pretty enough to embellish 
his volume, and therefore laid them aside for Vandergucht's engravings from Vanderbank's designs 
(art. 39). 

Concerning Plate 2, IRELAND remarks further : 

The original of this print . . . was designed to represent the inn-keeper conferring the order of 
knighthood on Don Quixote, but for some cause, not now known, never finished. The artist probably 
intended that it should form a part of the series begun for Lord Carteret, but, the other six being 
discarded, never completed his design ; though a slight outline of the Don kneeling to receive his new 
honours is discernible in the corner of the print: mine host, though a large man, is a less portly 


personage than the author describes. The print is not in any of the catalogues of Hogarth's works, 
but the style leaves little doubt of the artist. 

In the plate from VANDERBANK, in Jarvis's quarto, representing the whole scene, the innkeeper 
has a more than accidental resemblance to this figure. 

The same nine prints appear in Anecdotes of William Hogarth written by himself: 
etc. London: J. B. Nichols & Son, 1833. In this issue, they are without any super- 
scription, the words " Don Quixote " and the plate enumeration being below ; further, 
they are now " Published by Nichols & Son, Feb. i, 1832 ". They are also repro- 
duced by process in Vol. III. of Hogarth's Works, published by Chatto and Windus, 
without date. 


A set of 24 engravings, measurement, exclusive of the space for description 
underneath the design, 3^ by 2| inches = 80 by 55 mm., designed and signed by 
I. I. F. LEBARBIER 13, LEFEBVRE u ; engraved and signed by L. M. HALBOU, once 
written HALBON, 6, GODEFROY 4, COINY 4, DUMBRUN 4, MASQUELIER aine 2, L. J. 
MASQUELIER 2, C. S. GAUCHER 2. There are "Tome" and "Page" indications 
above, and descriptions, in French, below the design ; the indications and signatures 
are outside the line which finishes off the engraving ; one only, that for Tom. 2, 
chap. XVI, pag. 387, is dated " an VII " ; two have a third signature, between the 
two others, viz. COINY aqua fort. The same set exists before letters, i.e., without 
indications or descriptions, some signed, others unsigned. "Jolie collection," says 
SIEURIN, " dont il y a des eaux-fortes et des epreuves avant la lettre". I have not 
seen the eaux-fortes. Two will be found reproduced in the Iconografia under Nos. 42 
and 91. Done for

omitted ; in the description, under the engraving for Tome 6, Page 6, the following 
error, " aux " instead of " au," has crept in. 


A set of i portrait, i frontispiece, and 32 l engravings in the text : The portrait, 
size 3$ by 2^ inches = 92 by 55 mm., is in an oval frame resting on a base, on 
which is the name Cervantes ; below, outside the design, we read : IOANNES MORENUS 
DE TEXADA omnes hujus Historise Lamellas praster quatuor ab altero scalptas incidit 

1 In the Iconografia " 35 laminas " are erroneously given. 
'3 . 


Matriti ^Etatis suae anno 60 ac 61 ". The frontispiece, size 3^ by 2 inches = 94 
by 52 mm., signed PARETIUS del., MORENUS inc*., represents a goddess pointing out 
the temple of glory to Don Quixote. The engravings measure, including the frame 
with which they are surrounded, if by 2j inches = 45 by 53 mm. ; they are designed 
by F. ALCANTARA 18, PARET 14 ; and engraved by MORENO TEJADA 28, B. AMETLLER, 
4 ; the signatures vary, being sometimes Latinised, at others abbreviated, e.g., ALC*., 
TDA. The designs are very charming, and the engraving delicate and fine. Two 
of these engravings will be found reproduced in the Iconografia as Nos. 13 and 54.

dates MDCCC. 


A set of 8 etchings, 8 size 3^ by 2f inches = 90 by 60 mm., from designs by 
HONORE FRAGONARD, engraved by VIVANT DENON, without titles or indications ; six 
have the signatures of both artist and engraver, generally abbreviated, inside the 
design ; two are unsigned. I have the set before me, struck off in " sanguine " as 
well as black. The original drawing of one, Quixote knighted, is in the collection 
of M. Groult of Paris (art. 426) ; the engraving is turned, and the inn-keeper conse- 
quently holds the sword in his left hand. The etchings were done probably at the 
end of the last, or quite the beginning of the present, century, although the set 
before me was, I believe, struck off by the publisher Barraud. (See also art. 312). 


A set of 7 (?) engravings, size 17^ by 26| inches = 450 by 680 mm., unsigned, 
with titles, in French and Spanish, quotations, four to eight lines each, also in 
French and Spanish, references, and publisher's name and address, underneath. As 
more than seven engravings are, I presume, required to complete the series, I give 
the French titles, etc., of those before me : 

1 M. E. CROTTET, who notices this edition at some length, mentions 8 vcls. only ; he ignores the 
portrait, and speaks of no more than " 30 delicieuses vignettes a mi-page ". The name of the engraver 
Tejada he spells incorrectly "Tepada". He appears to have confused the illustrations in this edition 
with those in that of Madrid MDCCXCVIII (art. 92) by Antonio Rodriguez, whose name he shortens 
to " Rodez ". He qualifies these latter productions as " figures ravissantes ". 

2 A portrait of Denon usually goes with the set, making nine etchings in all. 


(1) " La Fausse Princesse de Micomicon vient prier D. Quichotte de la remettre sur 
son Trone, Liv. 4, ch. 29. A Paris chez J. B. IBonard rue S'. Jacques, au Coq." 

(2) " Comme rindustrieux Sancho enchanta Madame Dulcinee, Liv. 5. chap. 10." 
Publisher's name and address as above, but spelt Bonnar. 

(3) "Don Quichotte, Liv. VI. Chap. XXI." Subject : Basilio pretending to kill 
himself. The publisher changed to la Veuve J. B. IBonnart. 

(4) "Don Quichotte, Liv. VI. Ch. XXX." Subject : Sancho introducing his 
master to the Duchess. Publisher, la Veuve J. B. IBonnart, etc., as above. 

(5) "Don Quichotte arrivant chez le Due, est desarme par six jeunes filles qui lui 
servent de pages. Liv. 6. Ch. 31." Publisher, la Veuve Bonnartf etc. 

(6) "Don Quichotte, Liv. VII. Ch. XLI." Subject : Quixote and Sancho on the 
wooden horse, fancying that they are taken up in the air. Publisher, la Veuve J. B. 
IBonnart, etc. 

(7) "Depart de Sancho pour I'Isle de Barataria Liv. 7 Chap. 44." Publisher, 
J. B. IBonnard, etc. 

Executed probably about the end of the last, or beginning of this, century.

it is signed ANKER SMITH A.R.A. ft. ; it bears, underneath, the name of Cervantes, 
sometimes in solid, sometimes in open, letters, and " Published Jan 7 . 1801 for W.

From the notice of PIERRE MICHEL ALIX in Les Graveurs du Dix-huitieme Sihle 
I extract the following : 

Alix s'est occup de la gravure d'estampes pour illustrer Don Quichotte, s'il faut en croire ce 
billet, adresse au citoyen Rigaud, galerie du Louvre : " Avant huit jours j'aurais 1'avantage de presenter 
A Monsieur Rigaud une epreuve terminee de la troisieme planche de Don Quichotte. Je le supplie, en 
consequence, de remettre un petit a-compte A mon epouse, il m'obligera beaucoup. P. M. ALIX. 
Paris, 10 brumaire an 9." Et au bas, de la main de Madame Alix: " Reju dix-huit livres 4-compte 
comme dessus. Alix." Au verso de la feuille, autre re$u : " Reju du citoyen Didot la somme de 
dix livres pour solde de la planche de Don Quichotte represente & cheval lisant et Sancho tirant du 
linge d'une valise, Paris, ce 9 frimaire an IX, femme Alix ". 

Vingt-huit livres pour une planche ! Ou sont les beaux temps de la gravure ? On voit bien 
que la Revolution a passe par la. Apres tout, c'est peutetre juste ce que valait la planche d'Alix. 

I have not seen these engravings. 


A mezzotint, size 24^ by i6f inches = 615 by 415 mm., with " Painted by 
THEOPHILUS CLARKE," " Engraved by WILL". SAY," entitled and further subscribed, 
" Dorothea. Vide Don Quixote. To the Right Hon ble Lord Mulgrave the Print is 
respectfully inscribed by his Lordships most Obedient & Devoted Hum ble Servant 
William Say London Published Dec r 20 1802 by Will" 1 Say No 5. Quicksett Row, 
New Road, opposite Fitzroy Square." The word Dorothea is in open letters. 

Say, who published this print himself, seems to have soon sold the copper, as 
we find coloured copies of the same with the word Dorothea in closed letters ; 
H. Macklin substituted for the engraver's name, after the word servant, and the 
place and date of publication altered to " London. Published Jan y . icth. 1804, by 
H. Macklin, N 39 Fleet Street." 

This is a charming composition ; Dorothea's position is natural, and her face 
expressive of great fear at being surprised by the three men whose heads appear 
above the bank behind her. 

The same subject was again engraved by WILLIAM SAY on a smaller scale, viz., 
12^ by 7! inches = 310 by 195 mm. I have only seen the etching of it in the Print 
Room of the British Museum. 

The original picture of CLARKE is in the possession of M. Groult of Paris. 



A set of i portrait, and 3 engravings : The portrait, which is oval and vignetted, 
measures about 3^ by i\ inches = 83 by 70 mm. ; it is signed A. CARNICERO del. 
Madrid, K. MACKENZIE sc. London ; it is further subscribed, " Cervantes Eng* for 
Chapman & Lang's Edition of Don Quixote 1803 ". The engravings, which measure 
4-i by 2$ inches = 108 by 74 mm., are surrounded by a thin line, have descriptions 
in English, with publisher's name, etc., as above, two being dated 1803, the third 
not ; all are signed by the engraver MACKENZIE, two by A. CARNICERO as designer, 
the third, " Don Quixote demolishing the Puppet Shew," is unsigned, but is copied, 
and turned, from COYPEL'S representation of that subject. (See art. 22). The set, 
which is of no value, was done for

A set of i portrait, 2 allegorical engraved title-pages, 16 engravings, i map : The 
portrait is imitated from that of the 4 edition of J. Ibarra, Madrid, 1780 (art. 72) ; it 
is in a frame, and measures, from outer line to line, 5^ by 3f inches = 145 by 
95 mm. ; the name Cervantes is on a tablet within the design ; it is signed B. LANE 
sc., and is further subscribed, " Published by S. A. & H. Oddy, Oxford Street, 1808 ". 
The title-pages, or rather title-page, as the same design serves for both, are signed 
MACKENZIE sculp., and have the name of the publishers and date as above ; they are 
vignetted, and represent Quixote, partially clothed, seated on a bank, a spear in his 
right hand ; the head of Sancho grinning appears on the left, and behind is a

Indian paper with letters. The engraved title-pages read :

" Tom." i to 6 ; they are the same as those of the edition of Paris, Gide, 1806 (art. 
1 06), but the ornaments in the centres of the plates differ, and the engraving is very 
inferior. Done for

A set of i frontispiece, and 12 engravings, from designs by F. HAYMAN (art. 51) : 
The frontispiece measures 6| by 3^ inches = 165 by 90 mm., including ornaments 
above, and compartment below, the design ; in the compartment is the word Frontis- 
piece ; it is signed F. HAYMAN delin., WARREN sculp., and is subscribed, " Published 
by J. Stratford, n 2, Holborn Hill, Feb r . 2 d . 1811 ". Concerning this frontispiece, or 
rather that of art. 51, the publisher offers the following : 

Explanation of the Frontispiece. In the Quarto Edition of Dr. Smollett's translation of Don 
Quixote, Hayman's Frontispiece appears without any description. The Editor of this Edition does 
not pretend to penetrate the full scope of the Painter's intention, but submits his ideas by way of 
explanation, leaving it to the Reader to alter, amend, or enlarge upon them as his own judgment 
shall dictate. In the Frontispiece the Designer seems to have imbibed the true spirit of Cervantes, 
and to have made a full display of the extravagance of Quixotism or Knight-Errantry. The strong 
Castles, which had been raised in the romantic ages of Chivalry, are here represented as falling to 
ruins on the appearance of Minerva, who by the mirror which she holds in her hand, reflecting the rays 
of science on the edifices of folly, exposes at once the ridiculous notions of romance. The gloom of 
falsehood being exposed, Truth hastily advances on the mansion of superstition, where the shield is 
suspended over the castle-gate ; which she cleaves asunder, and by putting her hand against the gate 
the fabric gives way, the pillars separate into their different parts, and the massy building falls to the 
ground : While the Knight-Errant, with his Squire, placed in the shade, seem to be attempting to 
defend against the emanations of light and wisdom, two ladies who are travelling at a distance. 

The engravings, all but one, are surrounded by one, or, in one case, two lines, 
and measure about 4$ by 3$ = 120 by 88 mm. ; all have, underneath, references to 
" Book " or " Vol." and " Chap.," with a short description ; all, except four, bear 
the signature of the designer ; and are engraved, and signed by A. WARREN 2, 
M. N. BATE 2, DEEVES 2, F. DEEVES i, P. AUDINET i, unsigned 4. Done for

A set of 4 engravings, size 3^ by 2f inches = 98 by 63 mm. ; in each engraving 



are four subjects in oval frames, unsigned ; above, " Don Quichotte Tome " I to IV ; 
they serve as frontispieces, one to each volume ; the subjects are the same as in 
art. 106, but generally otherwise arranged, and sometimes turned. Done for

A set of i portrait, and 39 engravings, size 3$ by 2 inches = 98 by 60 mm. : The 
portrait is imitated from that of the edition of Madrid, Joaquin ^Ibarra, 1780 (art. 72). 
The engravings are also reductions of some of those of that edition, and of the edition 
of same publisher 1782 (art. 83), consequently after the CARNICEROS ; they are un- 
signed ; they have, at top, " Tom." and " Pag." indications, and, under the design, 
a space, f of an inch = 10 mm., is lined off, as if for a description, but has been left 
blank ; this space is included in my measurement. They also exist without the 
" Tom." and " Pag." indications. The engraving is fine, but not very effective.

no title. Don Quixote, mounted, and at full gallop, sees the figure of his squire 
tossed on other side of the wall. The drawing is good and spirited. 


A set of two engraved and vignetted title-pages, and 2 engravings, serving as 
frontispieces, sizes, of the vignettes, about 2 by 2f inches = 60 by 60 mm., of the 
engravings, 3$ by 2| inches = 94 by 55 mm., surrounded by a thin double line ; all 
are signed T. UWINS del., A. W. WARREN, sculp., and have, underneath, descriptions 
of the subjects, and references. They are well drawn and finely engraved. They 
exist on China paper before letters, i.e., the vignettes are unsigned, while the 
engravings bear the name of artist and engraver in italics, under each other below 



the engraving, in the middle. One engraving is facsimiled in the Iconografia, No. 76. 
The wording of the engraved title-pages is : 

The Life & Exploits of Don Quixote, de la Mancha. London. Published by J. 
Walker fir* the other Proprietors. 1818. 

Whereas the printed title-page reads : 

The History and Adventures of the renowned Don Quixote : Translated etc., by 
T. SMOLLETT, M.D. etc. London. Printed for J. Walker, etc. 1818. 12, 2 vols. 

Reprinted, in same form, by T. Noble, 1846. The same engravings, much worn, 
appear in the edition, same size, of which the undated printed title-page bears impress : 
London : G. F. Isaac & Co., 25 Bread Street. 

Although the artist, translator, publisher, etc., are identical, andfthe size and style 
of the engravings are the same, the set is distinct from that noticed in art. in. 


A set of 74 1 engravings, of which forty-eight full page, and twenty-six 2 vignettes, 
or head and tailpieces in the text, from pictures by ROBERT SMIRKE : The engravings 
measure about 4^ by 3! inches =115 by 95 mm., are surrounded by two lines, have, 
underneath, descriptions, in English, and " Published Aug* 12 1817 by T. Cadell & 
W. Davies Strand London " ; they are all signed R. SMIRKE Esq r R.A. pinx ; and 
by the following engravers : F. ENGLEHEART 12, R. GOLDING 9, A. RAIMBACH 6, 
C. ARMSTRONG i. Two are reproduced in the Iconografia, Nos. 28 and 63. The 
vignettes, which vary somewhat in size and form, are unsigned, but have publishers' 
name and date of publication, as above. This description applies to the set as it 
is found in the ordinary editions of the book for which it was done, viz. : 

Don Quixote de la Mancha. etc. Embellished with Engravings from Pictures painted 
by ROBERT SMIRKE, Esq. R.A. In Four Volumes. London: Printed for T. Cadell and 
W. Davies, etc. 1818. 8. 

The translation is by MARY SMIRKE. There is, in Vol. I., an " Order of the 
Plates," which includes only the forty-eight full page engravings, called in the 
preface, "graphic decorations". 

This lovely series of illustrations, full of grace, delicacy, and poetic feeling, of 
which the one shortcoming would seem to be that they are not sufficiently Spanish 
in character, exist in three states. LOWNDES, usually careless with regard to illus- 
trations, is explicit in the present instance. He says : " A few sets of the 74 

1 COHEN notes, in error, " 70 figures et 14 vignettes," and guesses at the date, " publiee au 
commencement de ce siecle ". 

2 SIEURIN gives " 14 fleurons," the error which COHEN seems to have copied ; his total, however, 
of " 74 gravures " is correct. 



illustrations were taken off separately in folio, on India paper, at 15 guineas ; proofs 
before all letters, at 25 guineas. Now about half this value. A set of artist's 
proofs, with touched proofs, variations, and etchings, valued at 80 guineas, is in the 
possession of Godfrey Windus, Esq." The more minute description of these different 
states may be left to SIEURIN, a Parisian print-seller, and consequently particular in 
such matters. He writes : 

Je connais trois tats de cette superbe collection. i e'tat. Les gravures in-folio avant la lettre, 
soil sur blanc ou sur chine, ont un leger filet encadrant le sujet ; les noms de peintre et de graveur, 
Merits d'une finesse extreme, et au milieu : Cadel (should be Cadell) et Davies. 

II a ete tire un tres-petit nombre de ces epreuves avant la lettre, livrees,aux souscripteurs dans un 
portefeuille et se vendent de 700 a 800 fr. la collection. 

I have this set before me on India paper ; it is accompanied with a title-page : 
Engravings, illustrative of Don Quixote, from Pictures by ROBERT SMIRKE, Esq. R.A., 
on the verso of which begins a " List of the Plates," concluded on another sheet, 
both in folio ; both engravings and vignettes are here given in their order in the 
book, i to 74. To return to SIEURIN : 

2 etat. Les grandes gravures seules ont la legende legerement trace en petites lettres, a simple 
trait et en une seule ligne ; parfaitement tirees sur papier de Chine in-folio, et livr^e egalement dans 
un portefeuille . . . magnifique collection . . . que Ton considijre comine le chef-d'ceuvre de la gravure 

36 etat. Les grands cuivres furent coupes, et la legende au bas des grandes estampes fut mise 
en grosses lettres. C'est ainsi qu'on les trouve dans 1'edition de Londres, 1818. Dans quelques 
exemplaires, les 14 (?) jolis fleurons ont ete tires sur chine et recoiled a leur place apres Pimpression. 

In his mention of this set 1 M. BERALDI observes : 

II y a un etat rarissime, ou la plupart des planches sont non seulement avant toute lettre, 
mais aussi avant le filet d'encadrement et avec les noms d'artistes a la pointe ( fr. vente Paillet, 
et i.ioo fr. Sieurin). Vient ensuite Petal avant la lettre. 

Mr. H. E. WATTS, who is unable to find any illustrations for Don Quixote to his 
liking, stigmatises these as " strikingly unlike anything in the text ". 


A set of i portrait, i engraved and vignetted title-page, 16 engravings, all 
unsigned : The portrait, measuring 3$ by 2f inches = 93 by 75 mm., has, under- 
neath, the words " Don Quixote de la Mancha". The engravings, measuring about 
4 by 2-J inches = 102 by 73 mm., have all a description of the subject, in italics, 
underneath, and are very finely engraved. In the volume to which they belong no 
indication of either artist or engraver is given, but in the publisher's advertisement 
we read that they are by J. PHILLIBROWN, from Designs by ROBERT SMIRKE (art. 119).

An oval engraving, surrounded by a line, size, from line to line, 6| by 4! inches 
= 155 by 118 mm., subscribed, " Engraved by ISAAC TAYLOR Jun r ., from a Drawing

The subject is not to be found in the long set after Smirke (art. 119). 


A wood-engraving, size 7^ by 6 inches = 180 by 153 mm., signed, outside the 
design, SMIRKE, inside, W. J. LINTON sc., outside, and underneath, " No VII ". 
Subject : Sancho relating his story to the Duchess. Sancho is seated in the middle 
of the room, behind him is a squirrel on a perch ; on the right stands the duena, and 
a kneeling girl holds back a dog ; on the left the duchess is seated, and two women 
stand behind her. In the long set after Smirke (art. 119) this subject is represented 
by a headpiece only, from which the present engraving differs in many respects, and 
contains more figures and accessories. 


A set of 6 engravings after SMIRKE, engraved by JOHANNOT and COUPE. This 
set, said to exist also before letters, I have not seen, nor do I know if it is complete 
with six engravings. 


A set of i frontispiece, and 32 engravings, size about 3^ by z\ inches = 96 
by 63 mm., signed F. NOVELLI inv. e inc., 2 and with descriptions, in Italian, under- 
neath : The frontispiece has a small portrait of Cervantes, surrounded by a frame 
bearing his name, let into the design, at top. The engravings have "Vol." and 
" Pag." indications. Two are reproduced in the Iconografia under Nos. 35 and 69.

1 I have seen only one impression of this engraving, which is cut down, so that there may be 
other lettering. 

2 In spite of this indication, SIEURIN says " 32 gravures in-8, gravees par NICOLINI. Venise, 
Alvisopoli, 1818-19," thus omitting mention of the frontispiece. 



abbiamo voluto supplire, e speriamo che si troveri ottima la scelta che abbiamo fatta dell' esperto 
e franco disegnatore e incisore all' acqua forte signer Francesco Novell! veneziano. Le stampe, che 
saranno tutte di sua invenzione e incisione, si troveranno esprimenti i soggetti con veritii e con 
bell' effetto pittoresco. Ogn' intelligente conosce che meglio dell" opera di un diligente ma servile 
bolino riesce assai piu apprezzabile quella libera e franca incisione all' acqua forte, colla quale 1'artista 
confida al rame, quasi d'improvviso, 1'opera del suo ingegno e della sua mano. 

A year later the same engravings were reissued in a single volume, with a page 
of letter-press for each engraving ; the descriptions underneath and the signature 
remain, but the " Vol." and " Pag." indications, at top, are effaced, and the plates 
are numbered, above, including the frontispiece, I to XXXIII. This volume is 
entitled :

The title-page is engraved. There were struck off of this volume " due soli 
esemplari impressi in carta colorata di Francia ". 


A set of i portrait, and 20 engravings, -size 5 by 3 inches = 128 by 78 mm : The 
portrait, 1 in an oval frame inscribed with name in full, stands on a base ornamented

" Vivet et a nullo tenebris damnabitur aevo. Lucano " ; it is signed B s . ATRIETLLER

"p." indications ; they are all signed by both artist, J. RIVELLES inv. y dib. ; and 
the engravers, ALEJA BLANCO 10, T. LOPEZ ENGUIDANOS 10, lo gr. Two of these 
pretty engravings are reproduced in the Iconografia under Nos. 7 and 89. The

the same, and two studies of heads of Don Quixote. Done for

two of those by COUPE are different from those noted in art. 128. I have them 
before me in pure etchings (eaux-fortes), without signatures, as well as in the 
finished engravings. I know not for what edition these engravings were done. 



A set of 4 engraved and vignetted title-pages, and 20 engravings, 1 size 3 by 
2^ inches = 77 by 65 mm., the vignettes rather larger ; all bear " Drawn by R. 
WESTALL R.A., Engraved by CHA S . HEATH"; all have the title Don Quixote, and 
" London, Published by Hurst, Robinson & Co. 90 Cheapside, 1820," with " Vol." 
and " Page " indications ; the engravings are surrounded by a double line. A very 
charming series, of which two are reproduced in the Iconografia under Nos. 29 and 
79. Done for 

The Life and Adventures of Don Quixote de la Mancha. A New Edition : with 
Engravings from Designs by RICHARD WESTALL, R.A. In Four Volumes. London : 
Printed for Hurst, Robinson, and Co. Cheapside. 1820. Small 8. 

These engravings, on China paper, signed, and fully lettered, are also found in 
an album entitled :

Mancha. Executed by CHARLES HEATH from Drawings by RICHARD WESTALL, Esq.

They are preferable in this state. SIEURIN says : " II y a des tirages avant 
la lettre, blanc et chine ". I have not seen them. 

An engraving, " estampe, in-4, en 1., publiee vers 1820, Don Quichotte," designed 


Also, "pieces sur Don Quichotte," engraved by J. P. M. JAZET, after SCHALL,

Two mezzotints, size about 12 by 18 inches = 305 by 455 mm., engraved by 
CHARLES TURNER from paintings byj. PORTER. I possess them in proofs, struck off 
by Turner himself, and before all letters or signatures. I have seen no other 
impressions. The subjects are : (i) The return of Quixote, with eight figures and 
two animals ; (2) Quixote attired by the maidens of the duchess, Quixote, Sancho, 
and seven females. 

1 In the Iconografia only " 23 laminas " are mentioned. 



A set of 4 engraved title-pages, each with a finished vignette, and 8 vignetted 
engravings almost in outline, measuring about 3 by 2j inches = 77 by 65 mm. and 
smaller: The former have, underneath, " Pag." indications. The latter references to 
both "Tom." and "Pag.". All are signed by the designer, DEVERIA; and by the 
following engravers : SIMONET jeune 6, VALLOT, who sometimes adds " aqua fortis," 
4, RUBIERRE r, TOUZE' i. There exist impressions of the title-vignettes without the 
titles, and unsigned ; and of the engravings without the indications to their places 
in the work, and signed by both artist and engravers, in italics. This charming 
little set, one of which is reproduced as No. 73 of the Iconografia, was done for 

L'Ingenieux Chevalier Don Quixote de la Manche. A Paris Chez Th. Desoer, etc. 
1821. 12, 4 vols. 


A set of 6 lithographs, size, of engraving, 23^ by i6f inches = 598 by 425 mm., 
or from line to line, by which they are surrounded, and including the descriptions 
at the bottom, 24^ by 20 inches = 620 by 510 mm. ; all signed A. DEVERIA Lith., 
Imp. LEMERCIER, Paris, and further subscribed, " Paris (M on . Aumont) Fran9ois 
Delarue Succ. rue J. J. Rousseau, 10 " ; underneath each plate is an extract from 
Don Quixote, of several lines, in both French and Spanish. The designs are not 
absolutely original, but are, in several instances, inspired by those of COYPEL (art. 22). 


A set of i portrait, and 3 engravings : The portrait, small, is in a frame, upon 
which is the name Cervantes, and, below, " Engraved by FREEMAN, London, Pub- 
lished by J. Bumpus, 1821 ". The engravings, size 2$ by 2-J inches = 70 by 64mm., 
have a very fine line round them ; they are signed WAINWRIGHT sculp., and further 
subscribed, "Don Quixote, London, Published by J. Bumpus, 1821". They serve as 
frontispieces to Vols. II., III., and IV. of 

The Life and Exploits of Don Quixote De la Mancha. Translated etc. by CHARLES 
JARVIS, Esq. In Four Volumes. London : Printed by W. Wilson, 4, Greville- Street,

A set of i portrait, 12 engravings, 1 and i map: The portrait, which measures 
4^ by 3^ inches = 125 by 83 mm., is unfinished and unsigned, nor is it found in the 
ordinary copies of the edition for which it was destined ; it represents Cervantes 
bare-headed, in turned-down collar and cloak, looking slightly on one side ; it is in

an oval frame, the four corners of which are ornamented by branches of laurel. The 
engravings, measuring 4$ by 3! inches = 112 by 86 mm., are without lettering; they 
are from designs by EUGENE LAMI 8, two of which are signed LAMIE, one without 
signature, and HORACE VERNET 4, signed ; engraved and signed by F. LIGNON 7, 
CARON 2, PREVOST i, LEROUX i, BURDET i. One of the engravings after Lami is 
reproduced as No. 58 in the Iconografia. Concerning this beautiful series SIEURIN 
makes the following observation : 

La collection des gravures devait avoir, pour Don Quichotte, 14 sujets, 4 d'HoRACE VERNET et 10 
d'EuoENE LAMI. Deux dessins de ce dernier n'ont pas ete termines ; un seul existe d 1'etat d'eau-forte, 
tres-rare & trouver (I have not seen it), ainsi que 1'eau-forte du portrait de Cetyantes. II a t tiri des 
eaux-fortes, des epreuves avant la lettre papier de Chine, et enfin quelques collections seulement sur 
papier de Chine double et qui sont tres-rares ; elles contiennent 12 estampes pour Don Quichotte. 

Some of the etchings (eaux-fortes), not the finished engravings, are signed and 
dated BLANCHARD 1820. 

I have before me a set of the proofs, on China paper, just mentioned ; some 
are unsigned, others are signed with the point in a character different from the 
ordinary impressions ; two are dated 1820, and two 1821 ; three bear, at the extreme 
bottom left corner, DROUARD Imp. ; possibly they consist of two states combined.

les lieux par BORY DE ST. VINCENT ". Done for

The edition should have comprised the complete works of Cervantes, but was 
never terminated. 


A vignetted engraving, size about 3$ by yf inches = 94 by 198 mm., unsigned, 
but subscribed " Don Quixote. London, Published by S. & I. Fuller, 34 Rathbone 
Place, 1823". The scene represented is that in which Quixote makes love to the 
peasant women. The drawing is good, and the composition displays force and 
humour, although the execution is rough. 


A set of i engraved title-vignette, and 24 wood-cuts, from designs by ROBERT 
CRUIKSHANK : The title-vignette, used twice, is signed W. O. KNIGHT, sc. The 
wood-cuts, vignetted, measure about 3^- by 4! inches = 80 by 120 mm.; none are 
signed by the artist, but five bear the signature of the engraver, SEARS ; they are of no 
great merit. Done for

JARVIS, Esq. In Two Volumes. London : Knight and Lacey, Publishers, Paternoster 
Row. 1824. 


So reads the printed title-page. There is besides to each vol. an engraved 
title-page, undated, but which gives in addition : " Illustrated by 24 Designs by 
CRUICKSHANK" (sic). The work was issued in weekly parts, in a coloured paper 
wrapper embellished by an allegorical wood-engraving signed SEARS sc. Don 
Quixote was the first novel of " The Foreign Fabulist," in which series the pub- 
lishers contemplated issuing " the whole of the standard Foreign Novels, Tales & 
Romances ". There is a leaf of incorrect " Directions for placing the Cuts ". 

Republished in 1828, 1831, and in 1838, by Jones & Co., Acton Place, with the 
same wood-blocks, somewhat worn, and with a portrait, size, including frame and 
lines in which it is enclosed, 5$ by 3f inches = 144 by 94 mm., signed B. LANE sc., 
and with the name Cervantes underneath. 


A set of i portrait, and 9 engravings : The portrait, in an octagon frame, with 
spear, sword, etc., and surmounted by a cupid, measures, within the frame, 2 by 
i = 60 by 47 mm. ; it has, at top, " Don Quicfwtte, Tome i er ," and, at bottom, 
the name of Cervantes ; it is signed CHOQUET del., SUZINOT sculp. The engravings 
have all quotations, in French, underneath ; eight have, at top, " Tome " indications, 
and the title Don Quichotte, one has Don Quichotte only, eight are signed by the 
designer CHOQUET ; and by the following engravers : J. B. PFITZER 4, LEJEUNE 2, 
POURVOYEUR i, MONCEAU i, and one is entirely unsigned. A series of no great 
importance. They exist on India paper, with the signatures, but without the quo- 
tations or indications. Done for

A set of i portrait, and 5 engravings, size about \\ by 3^ inches = no by 
82 mm., all surrounded by three fine lines, and signed by both artist and engravers : 
The portrait is signed DEVERIA delt., LEFEVRE J ne . sc., and has, underneath, the 
name Cervantes within a flourish. The engravings, one to each volume, have, at 
top, "Don Quichotte Tom. II." to VI., and, underneath, descriptions, in French ; they 


are signed by the artist, DEVERIA ; and by the following engravers : A. FAUCHERY, 
DEQUEVAUVILLER, SIXDENIERS, P. PELE ; that to Vol. II. has no signature of 
engraver. In this state the engravings appear in the published book, but I have 
them before me in proofs, both on ordinary and India paper. The portrait is signed, 
by the point, by both artist and engraver, and has, on the ordinary paper, the name 
" Cervantes," underneath, in open letters, and without any flourish ; on the India 
paper " Cervantes " is omitted, but the signatures remain. The engravings are 
without the descriptions ; that for Vol. II., on ordinary paper, has, above, " Don 
Quichotte Tom. II," and is signed DEVERIA del', only, whereas on the India paper 
the superscription falls away, while we find, done by the point, the signatures of 
DEVERIA del'., L. DELAISTRE Sculp'., and the date 1825 ; that for Vol. III. is without 
signatures on the ordinary paper, but, on the India paper, it has the signatures of 
artist and engraver, as well as the date 1825, all done by the point ; that for Vol. IV. 
has the signatures, by the point, of both artist and engraver on both papers ; those 
for Vols. V. and VI. have, on both papers, the signatures, by the point, of both artist 
and engravers, as well as the date 1825. SIEURIN remarks : " Les epreuves avant la

The same set will be found in the QZuvres posthumes de Florian, etc. Don 
Quichotte de la Manche. Paris, chez M'enard, etc. 1837. Don Quixote occupies three 
volumes ; Vols. II. and III. are dated 1838. Although the. engravings, as now

The same set, very much worn, was again used in the edition, ornee de Gravures

is numbered, at top, I. to VI. ; all are enclosed in a frame formed of three sets of 
lines ; all are signed, and the engravings have, underneath, but within the lines, 
quotations, in French, and- in open letters. The title-page is adorned with a 
vignetted woodcut representing the Don attacking a windmill, signed, within the 
design, PORRET. 

The subjects chosen, style of design, and manner of engraving differ entirely 
from the set noticed in art. 135. 


A set of 8 engravings, size 3$ by 2f inches = 88 by 60 mm., unsigned ; at top,

Two mezzotints, size 12 by 18 inches = 305 by 455 mm., engraved by WILLIAM 
SAY, from pictures by J. PORTER: The subjects are (i) the destruction of Quixote's 
library, and (2) the starting on the hunting expedition from the Duke's castle ; in 
the former there are four figures, in the latter seventeen figures, four horses, one 
ass, two hounds. I have seen these two engravings in the Print Room of the 
British Museum in pure etching (eaux fortes), and in proofs before all letters. 
Published in 1826. 


Two mezzotints, size 12 by 18 inches = 305 by 455 mm., engraved by CHARLES 
TURNER, from pictures byj. PORTER: The subjects are (i) The preparation for the 
departure, and (2) the return of Quixote ; the former is an interior, in which are 
the Don, his squire, and seven females ; in the latter the knight is being helped 
from his horse before the door of his house ; there are in the composition, in all, four 
men, two women, two boys, two horses, with trees and distant undulating country. 
I possess these two engravings in proofs, before all letters, and have seen no other 
copies. They were published probably in the same year, 1826, as the two engravings 
by W. Say, from pictures by the same artist (art. 145).

inverted commas, quoted from Don Quixote Part 2, Chap. 7. These heads are very 
fine in expression and remarkably well reproduced. 


TOM TAYLOR writes : a " I know only from the engraving the head of Don

An engraving, size lof by \\\ inches = 286 by 270 mm., entitled Sancho's feast, 
under which we read : " London, Published for the Proprietor, by Mess. Colnaghi,

F. C. LEWIS, 1830" ; it is turned, and otherwise altered, from the original, two male 
figures being introduced, and one female figure omitted. (See art. 38.) 

The following passage, which I extract from Anecdotes of William Hogarth, 
London, 1833, p. 208, appears to refer to this engraving: 

A copy of " Sancho's Feast," from the original drawing by Hogarth, with variations from 
the common print, has lately been engraved in aquatinta, and it is said only six impressions are to

I give this indication from the Iconografla. I have before me six only of the 
engravings, in four states : (i) with signatures and description, (2) with signatures 
only, (3) without either signatures or letters, (4) pure etchings (eaux-fortes). In the 
two former states the signatures are outside the design : CHOQUET del. ; and COUPE

plate reproduced in the Iconografia, No. 25, bears the signatures of CHOQUET del., 
COUPF, sculp. The first three states are on India paper, the fourth, the etchings, are 
on thick white paper ; two only of these are signed, J. PFITZER and J. B. PFITZER. 
I possess six of the original drawings, in sepia, all signed CHOQUET, and dated, one

A set of i portrait, and 24 engravings : The portrait, size 3^ by 2^ inches = 89 
by 56 mm., in an oval frame, a branch on each side, has the name of Cervantes in 
full on a tablet underneath ; it is a bad likeness, and poorly engraved. The engrav-

reproductions of the engravings after COYPEL and others (art. 22) ; all turned, except 
Plate No. i. They measure, including design and inscription, &J by 5! inches =

A set of i engraved title, and 12 1 engravings: The title, on which the Don is 
represented in a room alone, fencing, is worded : Illustrations of Don Quixote : Designed 
by HENRY ALKEN Engraved by JOHN ZEITTER. And Dedicated to the Memory of 
Cervantes. S. H. HAWKINS Printer London 1831. Of the engravings, one is upright, 
measuring y| by 5f inches = 186 by 136 mm., the others, cross ways, size about yf 
by ioj inches = 197 by 267 mm. ; all have, underneath, the names of the artist and 
engraver, quotations, in English, and occasionally titles and name of the printer, and 
" London, Published June 1831," or " London, Published Sept r . 1831, by Charles Tilt, 
86 Fleet Street"; some are dated Jan y . 1832. I have before me a set on India 
paper, indicated " Proof". They were issued, I believe, without letter-press. There 
should be a printed outer wrapper, worded and illustrated as the title. The com- 
positions are bold, spirited, and effective, and deserve to be better known.

publishers as above, with " Printed by D. Hayes " added ; and in a fourth state, 
viz., on India paper, with signatures as above, but without the printer's name, and

the fame of the great artist BONINGTON.

An engraving entitled, Sancho at the feast stanied by his physician, under which, 
in italics, "Jones & Co. Temple of the Muses, Finsbury Square, London" ; size 5^ 
by 6 inches = 134 by 153 mm., unsigned by either designer or engraver. The 
engraving is hard, rough, blotchy, and indistinct. Design as in art 38. Published in 
The Works of William Hogarth ; in a series of engravings : with descriptions, etc. by 
the Rev. JOHN TRUSLER. etc. London : Published by Jones and Co. Temple of the Muses, 
(late iMckington's,) Finsbury Square. 1833. The plate is thus described : 

It has been sometimes thought that Sancho was the artist's favourite character. He is here 
represented as governor of Barataria, and seated in the spacious hall of a sumptuous palace, surrounded 
with all the pompous parade of high rank, and encircled by numerous attendants. A band of musicians 
in an adjoining gallery strike up a symphony to gratify his ear, and a table is spread with every dainty, 
to feast his eye and fret his soul ; for however magnificent the appendages of this mock-monarch, the 
instant he attempts to taste the solid comforts of government, the loaves and fishes evade his grasp, 
are touched by the black rod, and vanish I 

In plenty starving, tantalized in state, he curses the gaudy unsubstantial pageant, vows vengeance 
on the doctor, and swears that he will offer up him and every physical impostor in the island, as a 
sacrifice to his injured and insulted appetite. 

Hogarth has here caught the true spirit of the author, and given to this scene the genuine humour 
of Cervantes. The rising choler of our governor is admirably contrasted by the assumed gravity of 
Doctor Pedro Rezio. The starch and serious solemnity of a straight-haired student, who officiates 
as chaplain, is well opposed by the broad grin of a curl-pated blackamoor. The suppressed laughter 
of a man who holds a napkin to his mouth, forms a good antithesis to the open chuckle 
of a fat cook. Sancho's two pages bear a strong resemblance to the little punch-maker in the 
Election Feast, and though well conceived might have had more variety ; they present a front and 
back view of the same figure. To two females on the viceroy's right hand, there may be similar

This incomparable Print was published at an early period of HOGARTH'S life. The subject oi 
it is exactly consonant to his genius, and was probably selected by the Artist, to shew how happily he 
could enter into the spirit of a Writer, whose turn of mind seems so congenial to his own. Sancho, 
who was a favourite character with Cervantes, is here represented with a full face ; but HOGARTH, 
judiciously thinking a profile would be preferable, fixed a bit of paper over his first thought, and altered 
it to the state in which it is here engraved. It was finished with more neatness than any of those 
which he afterwards etched for the same work.

paper, with letters ; (3) on India paper, without letters, signed by artist and engraver, 
by the point, and without " pinx'." or " sculp*.". An elegant design, full of rustic 
simplicity, thoroughly English, and finely engraved. Dorothea is represented alone, 
seated on a rock, with one foot in the stream. SIEURIN qualifies it a " charmante

A mezzotint, size 8-^ by 6f inches = 205 by 167 mm., subscribed, "Don Quixote

J. E. COOMBS. I have a proof of this mezzotint before letters, but signed by both 
artist and engraver, by the point. Published in Engravings from the Works of HENRY 
LIVERSEEGE etc. Without date ; publishers as above. The following extract is from 
the Memoir by CHARLES SWAIN, prefacing the volume : 

" Don Quixote," with the exception of " The Recruit," has been thought his most distinguished 
performance, and by himself was considered his chef-d'auvrc ; all artists have conjoined to commend 
it as almost equal to the old masters for simplicity and grandeur of design : it displays, at the same 
time, a fine eye for colour, with a considerable knowledge of chiaroscuro. Quixote is seated near a 
table, on which rest an iron helmet, and a large open book that he ponders over with profound gravity; 
to the left corner, in the shade, stands a globe, with several folio volumes on the ground ; the light 
strikes down from the left vividly upon the chivalrous page, and the yellow table-cover serves to diffuse 
it : the true feeling of the painter, and no little judgment, are shewn by the manner in which he has 
dashed in the black velvet cap and gold tassel, whereby he .rivets our attention to the deep and 
thoughtful countenance of his hero. It was hinted to him that a little blue somewhere would improve

it; "Oh, by no means," he said, " it would then be too fiery". This picture was the favourite of 
every visitor, both at his studio and at " The Manchester Exhibition " (in 1831). Every object and 
particular colour in this truly clever work is painted from nature : a friend sat for the figure of the 
Don ; for, as before observed, he reluctantly worked upon any design without having nature to refer 
to ; hence, his productions carry with them that striking air of identity and individuality, which is 
rarely attained by other means : . . . The Artist has displayed a just conception of the character of the 
Knight. We find no shade of the vulgar prejudice, no burlesque, no exaggeration : in truth the Painter 
could not thus err ; he was a master of propriety, and his correct taste never deserted him. In his 
picture Knight-Errantry is linked with the Heroic ; he is not only the desperate assaulter of Windmills, 
but the high-souled champion in the cause of oppressed innocence and virtue ; a character at whose 
exploits we smile, but whose thoughts, councils, and feelings, we reverence. 1 


A mezzotint, size 9^ by 7 inches = 230 by 180 mm., painted and signed by 
H. LIVERSEEGE; engraved and signed byj. EGAN ; entitled and subscribed, "Don 
Quixote reading his letter to Sancho. London Published 1834 by F. G. Moon 20 
Threadneedle St. Sold by J. C. Grundy, Manchester, Hodgson Boys & Graves 
Pall Mall." I have this engraving entirely before letters, and unsigned. It is 
similar in style of production to Don Quixote in his Study (art. 173), but is not 
included in Engravings from the Works of HENRY LIVERSEEGE, although an impression 
has been added to the copy of that book in the Print Room of the British Museum. 


A set of 65 engravings, size about 10 by 12^ inches = 255 by 320 mm., all 
signed BARTOLOMEO PINELLI inv. dis. e inc., outside the design ; some have the

numbered, i to 65, in top right hand corner, and have, underneath, four lines of 
rhymed description, in Italian. Issued without any text, but with the following 
engraved title-page :

superscribed L' Artiste, in which publication, i serie, tome IX, 4" livraison, February

No. for Oct. 15, 1862, on white paper, with the signatures in type, and " SARAZIN, 
Imp. Paris," underneath, in the middle ; the title is in closed and larger letters. 
In this most characteristic composition Quixote and Sancho, mounted and abreast, 
advance along a rough road ; a town is discernible in the mountainous background. 
I have the same plate coloured a 1'aquarelle. The following extract is from a notice, 
signed JULES JANIN, at p. 50 of the volume for 1835 : 

Deji vous avez vu le Don Quichotte de cet homme de taut de couleur et d'esprit qui a nom 
Decamps. Decamps s'est fait 1'ami de Don Quichotte ; Decamps est monte en croupe, non pas sur 
Rossinante, qui aurait ete ecrasee, mais sur 1'ane plus robuste de cet excellent et intarissable Sancho 
Panca. La Decamps s'est trouve aussi a 1'aise que dans sa propre maison. II a voyage de concert 
avec ses deux amis Don Quichotte et Sancho ; . . . Ainsi, Decamps a partage toutes les illusions de 
son heros, ainsi il a fait son portrait deux fois, ou plutot ainsi il a fait deux fois le portrait de 
Sancho. Vous avez deja vu le Sancho de Decamps (arts, 177, 178): Jovial rejoui, ne doutant de rien, 
veritablement a cheval sur son ane, pendant que son maitre est <k dne sur son cheval ; jamais on 
n'avait mieux vu Sancho Panga que ne 1'a vu Decamps ; jamais on n'avait mieux compris Sancho que 
ne 1'a compris Decamps. Mais ce n'est pas assez pour Decamps d'avoir fait le portrait de 1'ecuyer ; 
il sait trfes-bien que 1'ecuyer et le chevalier ne vont pas 1'un sans 1'autre, qu'ils sont inseparables, 
. . . Voila pourquoi Decamps, en grand artiste qu'il est, ne pouvait pas, et ne devait pas separer ses 
deux heros. Ainsi a-t-il fait dans la gravure de notre derniere livraison. II les a fait aller de pair, au 
meme pas, paisible et lent, comme ils allaient toujours. On voit que Sancho a ralenti le pas de 
son ane par respect pour le coursier de son maitre, tout en marchant, ils causent, on plutot Sancho 
parle a son maitre pendant que son maitre s'entietient avec ses pensees. Ils sont heureux tous deux, 
chacun a sa maniere ; Sancho reve tout haul qu'il est attendu dans une bonne hotellerie ; Don 
Quichotte pense en lui-meme qu'il va rencontrer un chateau fort ; Sancho s'enivre de vin a 1'outre 
d'un muletier, Don Quichotte s'enivre de gloire et d'amour. Deux rSveurs tous les deux, sans que ce 
bon Sancho se doute qu'il est un reveur. 


An engraving, size 5! by 4^ inches = 135 by 115 mm., signed TONY JOHANNOT 
del' et sculp, and further subscribed, " Don Quichotte (Tableau refuse au Salon de 
1835)"; superscribed L' 'Artiste. This charming plate, surrounded by two lines, is 
very finely engraved, and represents the Don's equipment by the two girls at the inn ; 
it appeared in L' Artiste, i" serie, tome IX, 13* livraison, of the year 1835. The 
same design, re-engraved, occurs at Vol. I., p. 77, of the edition of Don Quixote,

A set of 6 engravings, size about 9^ by 6 inches = 233 by 174 mm., all signed

the six engravings cover three pages. Published in The Works of William Hogarth 
from the Original Plates restored by JAMES HEATH, etc., with etc., Explanation of the 
Subjects of the Plates, by JOHN NICHOLS. London : Baldwin and Cradock, etc. 4. 
No date, 1835-7. I add NICHOLS' account of this set : 

When Lord CARTERET was seeking artists to design the plates for his Spanish edition (art. 39) 
of this famous romance, which was published in 1738, HOOARTH of course was not overlooked ; and 
these six prints were in consequence designed and etched by himself in a bold and masterly style. 
His performances, however, gave so little satisfaction to the noble employer, that, after having been 
paid for, they were laid aside. 

The plates remained in the hands of Mr. Tonson ; and, after his death, were bought by Mr. 
Dodsley, under whose direction the chapters, etc. to which they belong, together with references to 
the corresponding pages in JERVIS'S (sic) translation, were engraved. The plates were afterwards 
purchased by Messrs. Boydell, and from them by Mr. Sayer. As the admirable romance which they 
illustrate is in every one's hands, the titles of the several plates will be sufficient for their explanation : 

1. Funeral of Chrysostom, Marcella vindicating herself. 

2. The inn-keeper's wife and daughter taking care of the Don after he had been beaten and bruised. 

3. Don Quixote releases the galley-slaves. 

4. The Knight of the Rock meeting Don Quixote. 

5. Don Quixote seizes the barber's bason for Mambrino's helmet. 

o. The curate and barber disguising themselves, to convey Don Quixote home.

trations ex title-pages, from designs by TONY JOHANNOT : The title-pages are of two 
different arabesque designs. Of the frontispieces, that to Vol. I., representing the 
Don in his study, measures 7 by 4^ inches = 180 by 115 mm., and is signed TONY 
JOHANNOT inv., PORRET scul. ; that to Vol. II., representing the Duke and Duchess 
reading Don Quixote, is rather larger, and is signed BREVIERE s. only ; both are 
vignetted. These are also found struck off separately on India paper. The illustra- 
tions vary very much in size ; a few only bear the signature of TONY JOHANNOT, 
while several, notably those at Vol. I., pp. 237, 469, 551, and Vol. II., pp. 72, 77, 
474, 477, 490, 493, 629, have two signatures, neither of which is that of Tony 
Johannot, leading to the supposition that they were not drawn by him ; they are 
generally signed by the engravers, among whom the following may be noted : 
ANDREW BEST LELOIR," frequently shortened to ANDREW B. L., or to A. B. L., 

1 M. BERALDI gives the date erroneously as 1825. 

2 I have been specially careful in the enumeration of these illustrations, as they are generally 
noted incorrectly : the Iconografia gives " 749 laminas y adornos " ; M. BRIVOIS " 800 vignettes 
intercalees dans le texte," which number is endorsed by M. BERALDI, and this latter round number 
is usually found in booksellers' catalogues. 

3 Given erroneously in the Iconografia as ANDR W. BEST LELOIR.

The issues above noted by no means exhaust the list. 

H. G. Bohn published an edition in which he combined the illustrations of TONY 
JOHANNOT with those of Sir JOHN GILBERT (supra, and arts. 198, 213). 

The art world is fairly unanimous in its appreciation of T. Johannot's illustra- 
tions of Don Quixote. Even Mr. H. E. WATTS allows them to be " very spirited, but 
very un-Spanish ". M. BERALDI considers them " quasi classique en France," and 
adds : " Le Don Quichotte est 1'illustration que Tony Johannot a le mieux frappee de 
sa marque ". See also art. 181. 


A set of i portrait, 10 engravings, and i map : The portrait, finely engraved, 
chiefly in stipple, is enclosed by three lines, size, from outer line to line, 4^ by 
2f inches = 108 by 71 mm. ; signed, within the lines, D. C. JOHNSTON sc. ; under- 
neath, outside the lines, is the name Cervantes. The engravings, in outline, are 
surrounded by three lines, and measure, from outer line to line, 4^- by 3-^- inches = 
108 by 84 mm. ; at top, outside the lines, they are numbered " Lam." I to X, and 
have " T." and " p." indications ; below, also outside the lines, are the signatures, 
and descriptions in Spanish. Seven are bad reproductions of engravings by GEORGE 


CRUIKSHANK (art. 170), and are signed G. CRUIKSHANK del., D. C. JOHNSTON scul. ; 
they bear the following titles : 

(1) Manteamiento de Sane/to Panza. Reproduced as No. 15 in the Iconografia. 

(2) Aventura de los Batanes. 

(3) Batalla de Don Quijote con cueros de vino. 

(4) Don Quijote enjaulado por encantamento. 

(5) Espanto de Sancho del Narigudo. 

(6) D. Quijote desafiando al Leon. 

(7) El Gobsrnador Sancho y el Doctor Pedro Redo de Agiiero. 

The three remaining engravings are original, and bear the signature of D. C. 
JOHNSTON inv. dib. y gr. They are entitled : 

(8) Destrozo del Retablo del Titerero. 

(9) Esplosion de Clavileno el Aligero. 

(10) Aplauso de D. Quijote en Barcelona. Reproduced in the Iconografia, No. 93,

"Don Quichotte, par SCHROEDTER. Grave par THOMPSON, a Londres. Tome I,

engraving is good. The subject is identical with that noticed in art. 179*, and one 
in the set noted in art. 249. Given in Histoire de I' Art Moderne en Allemagne par 
Le Comte ATHANASE RACZYNSKI, etc., 1836, where, at Vol. I., p. 199, we read : 

Son (Schroedter's) Don Qnicliotte ne manque d'aucune des qualites qui font le mfirite des ouvrages 
de Genre les plus remarquables, de quelque epoque et de quelque pays que ce soil. Don Quichotte est 
enfonce dans la lecture d'Amadis des Games ; le plus grand dgsordre regne autour de lui. II est maigre, 
il est blfeme, il est deguenille, il est sale, il est fou, il est comique, et pourtant il est en mfime temps 
touchant. C'est, parmi tous les tableaux de Genre de 1'exposition de 1834, celui qui a obtenu le plus 
de suffrages. II appartient au libraire Reimer, 9. Berlin. 

I have before me the same engraving struck off on India paper, with five lines 
underneath, indicating that it was taken from the above mentioned work, and a sixth 
line, " Imprime chez Paul Renouard, rue Garanciere, n. 5 ". 

A set of 12 engravings, size 3j by 4^ inches = 82 by 104 mm., without name

common. Done for

There is an illustrated outer wrapper in compartments, well drawn and well 
engraved, but unsigned ; the title occupies the middle of the design, and the publisher's 
name and place are below ; both on a black ground. 


A lithograph, size 5^| by y| inches = 151 by 188 mm., surrounded by two fine 
lines, entitled Don Quichotte ; signed, inside the design, in the right hand corner, 
DECAMPS ; and, outside the lines, to the left, ALOPHE del. ; to the right, Imp. 
d'AuBERT et de JANCA. The incident depicted is Quixote's attack of the flock of 
sheep. Done probably for L' Artiste, about 1838, when MENUT ALOPHE was working 
for that journal. 


An engraving, size 14^ by 18 inches = 370 by 458 mm., with " Painted by 
C. R. LESLIE, R.A., Engraved by W. HUMPHRYS, entitled Sancho and the Duchess, 
and further subscribed : " ' Now, my lady duchess, that I am assured that there is no 
skulker listening, and that we are not overheard by any but this good company, I will 
without fear or trembling answer all the questions of your grace, and first and 
foremost I will own I look upon my master Don Quixote as an incurable madman'. 
Book III, Chap. I. To the R'. Hon bl <=. George Earl of Egremont, etc., etc. This 
Engraving (from the original Picture in his Lordship's possession) is most respectfully 
dedicated by his Lordship's Obliged and Obedient Servants Fr s . Graves & C. late 
Colnaghi & C. London Published January I st 1838, for the Proprietor, by Fr s . Graves 
& C. (late Colnaghi & C.) 23 Cockspur St. Charing Cross." This engraving was 
issued in three states : (i) on ordinary paper as above noted ; (2) on India paper, 
with lettering as above, and with the word " Proof" added, underneath, left; (3) on 
India paper, with the signatures, but without the lettering. The proof before letters 
sells for about five guineas. 

The duchess, reclining on a couch which is placed on a dais, her duena erect 
behind her, a small dog beside her, listens to Sancho, who seated on a low chair, 
holds the fore finger of his right hand to his nose. There are four other females, one 
of whom a negress. A large vase, a mandola, and an open book of music occupy 
the foreground, left. Sancho's slouched hat lies on the floor by his chair. 

In the Autobiographical Recollections by Leslie, edited by TOM TAYLOR, we read : 

Sancho Panza in the Apartment of the Duchess. Exhibited in the Royal Academy in 1824. 


" Painted for the Earl of Egremont, repeated for Mr. Vernon (see art. 216), and now in the National 
Collection, South Kensington. 1 Repeated a second time for Mr. Rogers. A third repetition wa 
painted for one of the painter's sisters, in America, and is now in this country, in the possession of John 
Farnworth, Esq." TOM TAYLOR adds : " Of all LESLIE'S pictures, this is probably the most popular, 
and in none are his peculiar merits more gracefully and happily displayed. In the expressions of the 
actors, the painter has caught the very spirit of the scene. Sancho, half-shrewd, half-obtuse, takes the 
Duchess into his confidence, with a finger laid along his nose ; his way of sitting shows that he is on 
a style of seat he is unused to. Chantrey sat to Leslie for the expression of the Sancho, and his hearty 
sense of humour qualified him to embody the character well. The Duchess's enjoyment breaks through 
the habitual restraint of her high breeding, and the grave courtesy of her Spanish manners, in the 
sweetest half-smile a triumph of subtle expression. The sour and literal Dona Rodriguez is evidently 
not forgetful how Sancho, on his arrival, had desired her to have a care of Dapple. The mirth oi 
tiie whispering waiting-maids culminates in the broad sunshiny grin of the mulatto-woman. Nor has 
Leslie ever been happier in the composition of any picture.' 

The picture is noticed with disparagement by M. PAUL MANTZ in his article on 
Leslie in Gazette des Beaux Arts, Nov. i, 1859, p. 180. 


An engraving, which I have not seen, together with the original picture by C. R. 
LESLIE, after which it was done, are thus noticed in Autobiographical Recollections by 
Leslie : 

Don Quixote while doing penance in the Sierra Morena, deceived by the disguised Dorothea and the 
Barber. The picture belongs to the Earl of Essex, for whom it was painted, and has been well engraved. 

The Knight of the Rueful Countenance, " all naked to his shirt, lean, and yellow," courteously 
promises to redress the wrongs of the fair princess Micomecona. Dorothea kneels before the knight in 
her gorgeous attire . . . while her train is borne by the masquerading Barber, who kneels before the 
mules, with much-ado keeping on the beard that hangs down to his girdle . . . Sancho whispers 
the mysterious lady's quality in his master's ear, while the Don's armour hangs like a trophy on the 
cork tree to the right. The knight is an admirable conception, dignified, courteous, and gentle in his 
craziness ; and quite indifferent to his scanty costume, in his anxiety to relieve the injured princess. 

Of this picture there is a sketch by LESLIE at South Kensington, which TOM 
TAYLOR considers "quite Venetian in its glow of harmonious colour". It figures 
thus in the catalogue : 

119. Don Quixote and Dorothea. A sketch for the picture at Cashiobury. Don Quixote, unarmed 
and almost naked, assisting Dorothea to rise from her knees. Panel, 8 x u, oblong. Sheepshanks 

A paraphrase, in French, of the above remarks by TOM TAYLOR is offered as 
original criticism in L' Artiste for April, 1880, and signed by F. FEUILLET DE CONCHES. 


An engraving, vignetted, size about 5$ by 7j inches = 140 by 185 mm., 
representing the Don attacking the sheep. In the composition there are a shepherd

on foot holding his hands to his head and expressing wonder and vexation, Sancho 
mounted on Dapple, who is kicking out vigorously, a dog hanging on to Rosinante's 
tail ; the whole is contained in, and interwoven by, a scroll of brambles and thistles. 
Dated, in left corner, 1839, a corkscrew separating the second and third figures, 
Diisseldorf; signed, in the middle, JULIUS BUDDEUS excudit, in italics, and, under- 
neath, SCHRODTER, in bold, open letters. It is further subscribed, " Gdr. i. d. 
Kupferdruckerei d. Konigl. Kunst-Academie zu Dusseldorf v. C. Schulgen-Betten- 
dorfif". Done probably for JBuddeus' Album deutscher Kiinstler of the year which the 
engraving bears. The design is very clever and original, and finely engraved. 


An engraving, vignetted, unsigned, representing Don Quixote in full armour, 
spear in right hand, standing upon a pedestal ; inscribed, " Editeurs Susse freres 
place de la bourse" ; above the engraving we read don Quichotte ; height of engraved 
figure and pedestal, not including the lance, 5! inches = 142 mm. Taken from a 
bronze figure by ANTONIN MOINE (art. 444), date about 1840. 


A set of i portrait, and 9 engravings : The portrait, elaborately and finely en- 
graved, is vignetted, and measures about 5^ by 3^ inches = 134 by 90 mm. ; it is 
the three-quarter representation of Cervantes, is surrounded by an oval frame decorated 
with arabesques, etc., and is surmounted by a phoenix ; underneath, within the design, 
the word Cervantes ; it is signed ANTONIO ROCA sc'. The engravings, which measure 
2 TJr by I i inches = 72 by 45 mm., are copied from the designs of ANTONIO RODRIGUEZ 
(art. 92), although that artist's name does not appear ; they are all signed, in bottom 
corner, left, PABLO, or P. ALABERN g 1 ., and have, underneath, Spanish descriptions, 
in italics ; the engraving is thin and poor ; most unsatisfactory when compared with 
the originals. Done for

A lithograph, size 9^ by i\ inches = 242 by 180 mm., subscribed H. BARON, 
pinx. et lith., Imp. Bertauts, Paris, entitled La Princesse Micomicona ; the signature 
of Baron will also be observed within the design, reversed ; the number " 232 " 
appears in the top right hand corner. A pleasing composition ; the supposed princess 
kneels on one Imee before the Don, who is on foot, and leaning on his spear ; Sancho, 
in the background, watches his master while minding the two beasts ; the barber 
stands behind Micomicona. Date of execution about 1841 to 1843. 



Among the etchings of Louis LEROY M. BERALDI notes : " Entree de la Montagne 
Noire (Don Quichotte et Sancho dans un paysage) : gd. in-fol. en 1., 1842. (Second 
etat : toute la moitie gauche de la planche, regravee, avec au autre paysage, une croix

A set of i engraved title-page, i frontispiece, and 16 engravings, all on wood : The 
title, vignetted, size 7^by 4! inches = 190 by 120 mm., bears, withm the design, " Don 
Quixote de la Mancha. London 1841," and is signed J. GILBERT, C. ARMSTRONG 
& Son. The frontispiece, vignetted, and somewhat larger than the title, has, in the 
design, the word " Dulcinea," and a portrait of Cervantes ; it is signed by J. 
GILBERT and FOLKARD. The 16 engravings measure about 4^ by 3! inches =114 
by 95 mm., and are all designed by Sir JOHN GILBERT, although eleven only are 
signed by him, of which eight without, and three within, the design ; the engravers 
FOLKARD 2, S. SLV. i, BLAUER (?) i, unsigned 3 ; they all bear, underneath, and 
outside the design, the words, " To face p. " ; all are printed on toned paper. One 
will be found reproduced in the Iconografia, No. 46. Done for

piece, rather narrower than the portrait, signed YRIARTE Y HEREDIA dib., is copied 
from that by TONY JOHANNOT. The 125 illustrations, size 6| by 4* inches =170 
by 115 mm., are all surrounded by a thin line, and bear, at top, "Tomo" and 
"Cap." indications; most of them are signed J. HEREDIA, H. YRIARTE, BLANCO, 
E. YRIARTE, or their initials ; some bear the address of the publishers, others 
" Imprenta lito. de los editores " ; in spite of these signatures they are not original, 
but are copied very nearly, or are imitated, from the designs of TONY JOHANNOT 
(art. 1 86). Done for

An engraving, size 3^ by 2 inches = 96 by 70 mm., entitled The Duke and 
Duchess reading Don Quixote, and further subscribed " Painted by C. R. LESLIE, R.A., 
Engraved by CHARLES RoLLS, 1 Published by Longman, Rees, Orme, Brown & Green, 
Printed by H. TRIGGS ". Generally on India paper. It exists also on India paper, 
without title, but with names of artist and engraver. A charming composition, finely 
engraved. In the Autobiographical Recollections by LESLIE, TOM TAYLOR remarks : 

There is a little picture in the collection of Mr. Joseph Gillott, at Birmingham, of the Duke and 
Duchess reading " Don Quixote ". It has a sober power in its colour, and a quiet gracefulness in its 
composition, that make it very noticeable in spite of its small size. 

This criticism is translated by F. FEUILLET DE CONCHES in his article on Leslie 
in L 'Artiste for April, 1884, p. 250. 


An engraving, octagon shape, size 6 T \ by 4 inches = 154 by 123 mm., subscribed

well arranged, and carefully engraved. I have not been able to ascertain the date of 
publication, but presume it to be between 1840 and 1850. 


A set of 23 engravings, varying slightly in size, and measuring about 5^ by 
3 inches = 130 by 75 mm. ; they are all signed with the initials of ALEJANDRO 
BLANCO, followed sometimes by the letters " 1. g." ; thirteen have, above, " P." and 
" C." indications, the other ten are without any indications ; one is dated 1844. 
This set, which is by no means devoid of merit, was never published ; the one proof 
series of impressions, taken by BLANCO himself, is in the author's possession. The 
original coppers, with exception of that bearing the attack of the sheep, are also in 
the author's hands. That copper is lost, but was re-engraved in 1893, in an exact 
manner, by Mr. C. W. SHERBORN, whose signature, with " London " added, it bears ; 
the full count being thus restored. The designs are those of ISIDORO and ANTONIO 
CARNICERO, but the engraving of Blanco is far superior to that in the edition of 
Madrid, 1782 (art. 83). The two sets differ also in (i) the details of many of the 
engravings, and (2) two plates, Nos. II and V, of the earlier edition have not been 
engraved by Blanco, whereas he has produced two which are not found in the edition 
of 1782, the one is without indication, the other is for "P. n. C. XXXIX". Im- 
pressions of these twenty-three engravings accompany the present work.

The same publisher has frequently reissued the book ; the impressions of the 
engravings, not good originally, are, in the later issues, detestable. There is also

A set of i portrait, 10 engravings, and 419 wood-engravings in the text : The 
portrait, finely engraved, in oval frame, size about 5^ by 3$ inches = 132 by 92 mm.,

Reprinted by same publishers in 1850 ; and again in 1865, with a selection of

A set of i engraved title-page, i frontispiece, 48 engravings of various sizes, 
all printed on toned paper. This is a made-up set, comprising two distinct series of 
illustrations previously published, viz., the title-page, with date 1841 unaltered, the 
frontispiece, and the 16 plates designed by Sir JOHN GILBERT already described 
(art. 198), with this alteration, however, that the words "To face" are suppressed, 
and the letter " p " only left, on the engravings ; the other series is a selection from 
the wood-engravings after TONY JOHANNOT (art. 186). The printed title-page reads : 

Don Quixote de la Mancha. Translated from the Spanish etc. London : Henry G. 
Bohn, etc. 1847. Large 8, double columns. 

Reprinted, London, George Routledge and Sons, etc. 1877, with the same engraved 
title-page and date, 1841, unaltered. 


A wood-engraving, vignetted, size about 4^ by j inches = 105 by 133 mm., 
subscribed "Don Quichotte, d'apres M. PENGUILLY " ; no signature; the engraving is 
very unsatisfactory. Given in La Semaine, No. 27, for May 7, 1848, where a long, 
laudatory notice on Penguilly's picture can be read from the pen of PAUL DE SAINT 




A wood-engraving, reproducing the statuette of Dorothea, by JOHN BELL, in The 
Illustrated London News, Vol. XL, July to December, 1848, p. 253. The "beautiful" 
figure itself was first exhibited in 1841. 


An engraving, size 8 by pif inches = 203 by 251 mm., signed C. R. LESLIE R.A. 
Painter, R. STAINES, Engraver, entitled SancJw and the Duchess, and further subscribed, 
" From the Picture in the Vernon Gallery. Size of the Picture 4 ft. 1 1 \ inches by 4 ft. 
Printed by McQuEEN. London, Published for the Proprietors by George Virtue, 
25 Paternoster Row." 

The arrangement of the picture is similar to that painted for Lord Egremont 
(art. 191), but some of the details differ: the duena has a white apron; the dog is 
of a different breed ; the head-dresses of two of the attendants vary ; Sancho sits on 
a stool without a back ; part of the drapery forming the background is done away 
with and replaced by the portrait of a man hanging on the wall ; for the vase, left, a 
chair is substituted ; Sancho's hat is suppressed ; the flowers on the table, right, 
are not the same, etc. Published in The Art-Journal, Feby. i. 1849, where, at p. 59, 
we read : 

This picture is certainly one of the masterpieces of the English school of genre painting. It is a 
repetition of a subject painted by Mr. LESLIE for Lord Egremont in 1823, with several alterations in 
the details, which the artist introduced in order that it might not be an exact copy. It was exhibited 
at the Royal Academy in 1844 ... In the spirit of this picture there is true humour without that 
boisterous display which is too frequently its substitute in the works of many painters . . . Mr. LESLIE 
is emphatically not one of these, but a worthy scion of that race of humourists which counts among 
its number the great Cervantes. On an etching of this engraving being submitted to Mr. LESLIE, he 
expressed his perfect approbation of the work in its then state ; and on the completion of the plate, 
he writes : " Mr. STAIXES has finished ' Sancho and the Duchess ' entirely to my satisfaction ". 

The same engraving, with the words " From the Picture in the Vernon Gallery " 
omitted, will be found in Pictures by CHARLES LESLIE, with Descriptions etc., by JAMES 
DAFFORNE, London, Virtue 6" Co. (1872). 

The original sketch, in oil, made by LESLIE for the Vernon picture, was sold by 
Mess rs . Christie, April 29, 1893, for 54 izs., and figures as No. 147 in their 
Catalogue, Brocklebank, and others, of that date. 


A set of i lithographed and illustrated title-page, and 36 lithographs : The 
lithographs, which measure about 4^ by i\ inches = 113 by 193 mm., are numbered, 
at top, i to 36 ; they have frequently two subjects on the same plate, with descrip- 
tions, in French, underneath ; they are sometimes signed, within the design, 
E. MORIN, and bear, outside the design, names of publisher and printer. The 
title-page, crossvvays, reads : 


Don Quichotte en Images par EDMOND MORIN Paris Chez Aubert df C". Plate de 
la Bourse 29 Imp. Lemercier R. de Seine 57, Paris. No date, published in 1850. 

The monogram 3VI, sometimes used by E. Morin, was also employed by 
Meissonier and Montigneul. The Don Quichotte en Images is now scarce.

A pleasant composition, representing the two men, mounted, in a forest. Published 
in L'Artiste, Nov. 15, 1850, 5 serie, T. v., 12 livraison, where, at p. 192, we read :

portraits, upright, of D. Quichote de la Mancha, Sancho Panza, and Duldnea del

Of the merits of the picture as a work of art, we can only say that any observer will see at once

are very finely engraved, and signed, that to Part I., ESTEVANILLO, that to Part II., 
L. ESTEBANILLO d. y g. en B a . 1859 ; the former contains medallion portraits of Don 
Quijote and Sancho Panza, the latter a bust of Cervantes. The initial letters, one 
to each chapter, are generally signed ; but as they do not all bear reference to the 
work, no special description is needed. The tailpieces are generally slight and 
insignificant, most of them being mere typographical ornamentations. Done for

An etching, measuring 8 by 5! inches = 205 by 142 mm., surrounded by a 
line ; designed and signed, within the line, GOYA ; etched and signed, outside the 
line, by BRACQUEMOND ; entitled and subscribed "Don Quichotte. Gazette des Beaux 
arts Imp. A DELATRE Paris." The Don is represented kneeling on one knee before 
a table, on which he holds an open book ; various demoniacal figures of spirits in the 
background ; a dog in the foreground. The execution is rough, but the general effect 
vigorous. Impressions of this etching exist on China paper, without the printer's 
name. Published in the Gazette des Beaux-Arts, 15 Aout, 1860, where, at Vol. VII., 
p. 224, we read the following remarks of VALENTIN CARDERERA :

Un hombre flaco y de nada vulgar estatura esta hincado sobre su rodilla derecha delante de una 
mesa, en la que hay varios libros, uno de los cuales tiene abierto y en actitud de nostrar el texto, con 
el dedo indice de la diestra, a quien mira el grabado. La silla en que permanecio sentado vese a su 
espalda, y en ella descansa una espada de gavilanes y cazoleta. Un galgo en primer termino. For la 
atmosfera, rodeando su cabeza, figuras de caprichosos animales y mujeres fantasticas. Firmado : Goya.

be found in the top right-hand corner. A roughly executed, but vigorous, composition : 
The Don, bareheaded, carries his helmet in his left hand, while, with his right, he 
draws open a curtain giving access to the street. Within the design, at right, bottom 
corner, are the initials C. A. C. Executed probably between 1860 and 1870.

DORE, and engraved by H. PISAN ; generally signed by both artist and engraver. 
Three of the full-page engravings will be found reproduced, as Nos. 33, 59, 71, in the

Reprinted in 1869 by the same publishers in a somewhat smaller form, the 
title-page bearing, in this edition, " 370 Compositions," etc. Reproduced in

by GUSTAVE DOR. London : Cassell, Fetter, and Galpin, etc. Large 4, no date. 

1 370 is the number usually given, notably by M. J. BRIVOIS and by M. H. BERALDI ; there 
are, however, in the entire work 375. 

* Where, strangely enough, " 114 laminas " only are noted. This error is the more unaccountable 
as the number of full-page engravings can be verified by the " Table " added to each volume. 



Here the full-page engravings have, underneath, quotations, in English. The 
same publishers afterwards used a selection of i frontispiece, and 124 wood-engrav- 
ings, from the same designs, in an undated volume entitled : 

The Story of the Don, re-written for Our Young Folks. By C. L. MATE"AUX, etc. 
With Numerous Illustrations. No date. 

They again produced a " Cheap edition of the Dore Don Quixote with about 
400 illustrations," in 27 parts, at 3d. each part. 

Bold, effective, vigorous, and full of imagination, as these compositions of Dore 
undoubtedly are, they fail to give entire satisfaction. The artist has travelled 
beyond his author, and has fallen into errors which Cervantes would have deprecated. 
He becomes fantastic, grotesque, at times almost supernatural, depicting those 
extravagances which it was the writer's object to combat and destroy. The tranquil, 
thoughtful humour and gentle satire of Cervantes are lost in the artist's desire to 
produce striking effect, difficult attitudes, telling situations. The illustrations are 
in fact Dore, not Cervantes. In his Nouveaux Lundis SAINTE-BEUVE concludes his 
notice of the edition with the following passage : 

L'intelligence du style et de la couleur propre a chaque temps et a chaque ceuvre est une conquete 
de notre fi,ge ; ce qui n'emptSche pas, dans la multiplicity, quelque confusion. Cela est vrai pour les 
peintres comme pour les critiques. Quand Natoire (see art. 448) et Coypel (see art. 418) peignaient 
pour le chateau de Compiegne une suite de scenes de Don Qiiichotte, c'etait dans le ton simplement 
riant, et leur pinceau spirituel ne pensait qu'au plaisir des yeux et a la grace. M. Gustave Dore n'a 
pu ni du echapper a la science moderne plus ambitieuse, et son crayon en a contract^ du caractere. 
Mais nous tous, critiques ou peintres, en revenant si tard sur le sincere et gai chef-d'oeuvre, n'oublions 
jamais ce qu'il est u la source. Ennoblissons-le, traitons-le dignement, comme il sied et selon le ton 
primitif ; mais ne le changeons pas trop, ne le chargeons pas, melons-y le moins possible de pensees 
etrangeres et de ce que le trop de reflexion serait tent d'y mettre. II est d'un si bon naturel ! 

In addition to the editions noted above, the illustrations of DORE have been 
frequently used. I mention the following :

R.A. pinx', ROB T . C. BELL sculp 1 , and further subscribed " Sancho Panza. From 
the Picture in the Sheepshanks Gallery. London, Virtue & C." Published in 
The Art-Journal, March i, 1868, where, at p. 56, we read : 

A veritable portrait of the renowned " squire " of the chivalrous Knight . . . now seated at his 
first banquet-feast in his palace. . . . Leslie has given inimitably the expression of half-ama2ement, 

1 I take this date from the Iconografia, I have only seen the issue of 1874. 


half-anger, in the governor's face ; the full, fixed, and inquiring eyes, the knitted brows, the mouth 
partially open, even the very folds of the richly laced bib, and the clasped hands, all tell the tale most 
humorously, but with a refinement that only a painter of Leslie's elegant taste would throw into a 
subject of contrary tendency. 

The same engraving, with the words " From a Picture in the Sheepshanks 
Gallery " suppressed, will be found in Pictures by Charles Robert Leslie, London, Virtue 
dr* Co. TOM TAYLOR ' remarks : 

More truthful humour was never put on canvas of the same dimensions by any painter at any 
period. The hot, hungry impatience, and indignant questioning expression of the face are irresistible. 
It is only a pity that, to enjoy the picture thoroughly, one must know one's Don Quixote well. 
As a piece of sound, solid painting, this head ranks high among LESLIE'S minor works. CHANTREY 
may have aided LESLIE as a model for the expression. But the head was painted, his son George tells 
me, from the family fly-driver. Leslie painted the scene in full for Lady Chantrey in 1855. 

The original picture, of which the engraving is described above, is thus noticed 
in the Catalogue of the National Gallery at South Kensington : 

132. Sancko Panza. Sancho when governor of Barataria is prevented from eating by the interdict 
of the physician. Exhibited at the Royal Academy, 1839. Panel, 12 x 9, upright. Sheepshanks Gift,

A proces reproduction, in the text, size 2 by 2| inches = 50 by 70 mm., subscribed 
" No. 540. No. 540. Don Quixote and Sancho at the Castle. Sir JOHN GILBERT, 
R.A.," with a quotation, in English, from Don Quixote, and the following description : 

In a rich, tapestried, apartment, the Don is seen standing erect, montera in hand, before six rather 
short Spanish beauties who approach him with reverence. A good example of the humour, if not of 
the masterly execution, of Sir John Gilbert. 

A worthless reproduction, at p. 38 of Acade my Notes for 1875, f a picture exhibited 
in that year at the Royal Academy by Sir JOHN GILBERT. 


A set of 6 coloured lithographs, size 6^ by 4^ inches = 165 by 115 mm.

These coloured plates are unsigned by either of the above-named artists, but 
one of them has, in the bottom right-hand corner, within the design, the signature 
of C. KOLB. The outer wrapper is adorned with a seventh coloured lithograph, 
bearing, at top, " Don Quixote," and signed, at bottom right-hand corner, within the 
design, P. W. These plates are bold and effective, and are intended to impress the 
imaginations of young people. 


In 1875 the publisher Molinier projected a cheap illustrated edition of Don Quixote 
to be issued in parts, but it was not brought to a satisfactory termination. I have 
before me the illustrated wrapper and 80 pages of the publication, containing over 
a dozen wood-cuts, in the text signed, for the most part, VIERGE ; and engraved and 
The vignetted headpieces do not generally bear the engraver's name. The head 
which adorns the outer wrapper is signed by VIERGE and G. PERRICHON. This 
wrapper serves as title : 

Histoire de I'ingenieux Don Quichotte de la Manche Traduction de FILLEAU DE 
SAINT- MARTIN revue et corrigee Illustrations de DANIEL VIERGE Paris Molinier, 
etc. 1878. 

There is an undated, illustrated title-page, signed VIERGE, and A. MARTIN sc. 
For this unfinished publication VIERGE, whose real name is URRABIETA, says 
M. BERALDI, prepared some 300 designs. 


An engraving, vignetted, size about 2^ by 15 inches = 55 by 35 mm., unsigned, 
subscribed Quixote ; from a design by W. M. THACKERAY. The head and bust only 
are depicted, the former, full-face, covered by the basin, out of the top of which 
spring herbs, or grass. Given at p. 16 of Thackerayana, London, 1875. 


An engraving, vignetted, size 4 by about i inches = 100 by 40 mm., of an 
unfinished sketch, by W. M. THACKERAY, representing Quixote, erect, crowned with 
the basin, holding his lance in his left hand, and an unfinished shield in his right. 
Given in The Orphan of Pimlico and other sketches etc., by William Makepeace Thackeray 
etc. London Smith Elder & Co., etc. 1876. 

A set of i portrait, i map, and 9 engravings, all engraved on wood, and i map : 


The portrait, size yf by 5^ inches = 195 by 135 mm., is in a frame, surmounted by 
a lamp, under which, but above the portrait, is the name Cervantes ; below are a 
sword, a book, an inkstand, etc. ; it is signed R. PUIGARRI, and TRAVER. The 
engravings vary in size from y| by sf = 195 by 135 mm., some of which are 
crosswise, to 8$ by 125 inches = 225 by 310 mm., folding ; all are signed, within 
the design, R. PUIGARRI ; and by the following engravers : TRAVER 4, ARTIGAS 3,

or quotations, in Spanish ; all are signed, within the design, by the following 
draughtsmen : V. BARNETO 9, PADRO 2, S. WARVAEL 2, unsigned i ; and by the 
following engravers : MANCHON 5, CABA 4, E. ALBA i, illegible 3, unsigned i ; several 
are taken from paintings, to four of which the artists' names are attached : HISPALETO, 
LA ROCA, FERRAN, GISBERT ; this latter is the same subject as that noted in art. 262.

There is a " Plantilla para la colocacion de las Laminas ". Vol. 2 is dated, 
strangely enough, 1875. The first engraving represents, and is entitled, Cervantes en 
la Prision imaginando el Quijote. 


A set of i frontispiece, and 7 illustrations, all engraved on wood, and surrounded 
by lines, size, from line to line, 5$ by 3; inches = 136 by 84 mm. ; all are unsigned,

and subscribed "Don Quichotte ilustre par WATTEAU sur un paravent en cuir de 
Cordone. Galerie Arsene Houssaye. Imp. V ve A. Cadart. Paris." Although 
clearly inspired from Don Quixote, they represent no particular incident in that 
romance. Published in L' Artiste, 49"= annee, Nov., 1877, where, at p. 378, they are 
thus noticed : 

On sait que Watteau a commence par etre decorateur a 1'Opera. Combien de merveilles perdues ! 
C'est sans doute de ce beau temps de sa jeunesse que date ce paravent, qui etait autrefois au Palais 
Pompeien, ou il a peint sur ceux de Cordone les chapitres les plus amusants de 1'histoire de Don 
Quichotte. Une vraie comedie \\ la fran<;aise et a la Watteau. Ce n'est plus tout k fait le roman de 
Cervantes, mais il n'en est ni moins gai ni moins spirituel. On a pense avec raison qu'il fallait 
consigner ici cette oeuvre oubliee du peintre des Fetes galantes. 


An engraving, size 75 by 6 inches = 182 by 154 mm., signed Sir E. LANDSEER, 
R.A. del*., C. G. LEWIS sculp*., subscribed " Sancho Panza from a Picture in the 
Sheepshanks Gallery, London Virtue & C. Limited ". The incident represented 
is Sancho giving bread to his ass in the cave. Part II., Chapt. LV. Published in 
The Art Journal, vol. for 1877, where, at p. 304, it is thus described : 

Sancho Panza, with his " faithful companion Dapple," is a gem of a picture, about the size of 
our engraving, painted by Landseer in 1824, but never exhibited. It came into the possession of the 
late Mr. Sheepshanks, and is now in the collection, at South Kensington, bequeathed by that gentleman 
to the nation in 1857. Sancho was a humanitarian and certainly feels for his donkey quite as 
much as, if not more than, he does for himself. In consideration of the weak state of the animal, 
after raising it up, he rests against a ledge of rock and places his leg under the donkey's body, the 
more effectually to support it while munching the " luncheon ". The face of the squire is a strange 
compound of humour and sadness ; it is difficult to determine which quality is dominant ; but the 
composition of the group is not likely to produce gravity in the spectator, notwithstanding the temporary 
misery of Sancho and Dapple, who are, however, soon relieved from their place of bondage. 

The same engraving will be found in Pictures by Sir EDWIN LANDSEER, W. 
COSMO MONKHOUSE, London (1877) ; in The Landseer Gallery, London, no date (1887) ; 
and in The Works of Sir EDWIN LANDSEER, by W. COSMO MONKHOUSE, London, no 
date, (1879), in these publications the words " from a Picture in the Sheepshanks 
Gallery " are omitted. In the latter work Mr. MONKHOUSE writes : 

We can hardly expect to see Landseer at his best in illustrating the ideas of others. His own 
conceptions were so pre-eminently his own, that in following other men's paths of thought he could 
not but have felt a stranger on a new track the path, indeed, lighted up by his own brilliancy, but the 
eyes rendered, by reason of that very brightness, less fit to unravel the tangled windings. Here the 
donkey is all that can be desired, but we think that Sancho Panza appears to greater advantage in 
Leslie's picture, which represents him seated at table in the capacity of Governor of Barataria 
(art. 258). 

The original is now at South Kensington. It is thus described in the 
Catalogue : 

96. Sancho Panza and Dapple. Sancho leans upon Dapple, who is about to eat a crust that his 
master has spared him from his wallet. Panel, 7^ x 6J, upright. Signed E. L., 1824. Sheepshanks 



An engraving entitled, Don Quichotte au Bal chez Don Antonio. Tapisscrie,

= 299 by 190 mm., signed, outside the design, J. CLAYE, imprimeur. Published in 
L'Art about 1877. 

In a small square oblong medallion the Don is represented dancing with two 
ladies ; Sancho is also dancing in the foreground, and there are numerous figures 
in the background. A rich floral border surrounds and almost oppresses the main 
subject. The border contains also a peacock, two cupids, two dogs, five sheep, three 
medallions, and the following inscription : Dom Quichotte estant a Barcelonne danst 
au bal que luy donne Don Antonio. There are two signatures immediately under the 
design, very small, and almost illegible, probably ALORAN and E. DESCHAMPS sc. 
See also art. 419. 


A set of i portrait, 13 engravings, i map, 2 engraved half-titles, initial letters, 
and tailpieces, as in the edition of Gorchs, 1859 (art. 238), of which they are repro- 
ductions : The portrait, to which is now added, underneath, " Espasa y Compahia 
Editores," is repeated on the engraved title-page. The engravings are now supplied 
with quotations, underneath, and a thirteenth engraving is added, viz. D. Quijote

of Barcelona, 1884, Vol. I., p. 92 (art. 296). 


A wood-engraving, in the text, size 4f by 6f inches = 120 by 165 mm, subscribed 
" Fig. 78 Don Quixote and the Lions," reproduced from a drawing by Sir EDWIN 
LANDSEER. It is unfinished, and some amount of imagination is required to discover 
that it at all belongs to Don Quixote. Concerning it Mr. COSMO MONKHOUSE writes, 
at pp. 115-16 of Works of Sir Edwin Landseer : 

In the sheet of these hasty sketches will be seen what was to have been the " car with the flags," 
which contained the " two fierce lions which the general of Oran is sending to Court as a present to 
his Majesty ". . . . Below is seen a sketch of the Don, who determined to fight the lions on foot, lest 
Rosinante should be terrified at the sight of them. . . . The three mounted figures are evidently 
intended for Don Diego de Miranda on his mottled-grey mare, Sancho on his donkey, and the carter 
on a mule, endeavouring to get well out of the way before the cage is opened. The ultimate form which 
the composition was intended to take is hardly indicated in the scattered sketches, two of which do not 
seem to belong to the same subject as the rest. 

The same engraving will be found at p. 90 of Studies by Sir Edwin Landseer (1877). 


A photo-engraving, entitled Don Quixote, size 10 by 7^ inches = 253 by 183 mm., 
superscribed "Life, HENRI PILLE, November 8, 1879," and subscribed, " Phototypie, 
15, Quai Voltaire, Paris. Cliche* GODET " ; there is also the following quotation: 
" He already imagined himself at least crowned Emperor of Trapisonda by the valour 
of his arm " ; signed, within the design, H. PILLE. Quixote is seated in a high- 
backed chair, a long sword standing beside him ; he is bare-headed, has his legs 


stretched out, and holds, in his right hand, a book, through the leaves of which he 
has passed his fore finger ; a table, armour, books, etc., fill up the composition. 


A set of i portrait, and 36 etchings : The portrait, measuring 5^ by 3$ inches = 
134 by 89 mm., is in an oval frame richly decorated with flowers and emblematic 
objects, resting on a base, without name or any kind of inscription ; it is signed AD.

A set of 1 6 etchings, size 4$ by 3^ inches = in by 77 mm., signed, within 
the design, R. DE Los Rios. I know this set in two states, both on Japanese paper, 
and before letters ; one state has however remarques, viz., an animal or a bird under 
each etching. Issued in a grey paper wrapper, worded :

coloured dedication, i portrait of Cervantes, 44 full-page coloured oleographs: The 
title- vignette, repeated, represents the "Escudo de la primera Edicion de 1605". The 
head and tailpieces, varying much in size, one each to each chapter, one hundred and 
four in Vol. I., one hundred and forty-eight in Vol. II., do not appear to be designed 
exclusively by R. BALACA, in spite of the indication on the title-page given below, as 
on a few, in Vol. II., we read the name of PELLICER as designer ; they are generally, 
but not always, signed by the engraver, the signature most frequently met with is 
SMEETON-TILLY, or E. A. TILLY, or E. & A. TILLY ; a few are signed SADURNI, 
F. GOMEZ, BRANGULI, MARTIN, and one ARTIGAS. I have some of these engravings 
struck off separately. The dedication bears the words "A la Memoria de Miguel 
de Cervantes Saavedra Los Editores," and is surrounded by an allegorical border, 
printed in gold and colours. The portrait of Cervantes, signed B. MAURA, D> b . y 
G bo . 1879, is printed in black and white, and laid down in an allegorical frame or 
border printed in gold and white, bearing, at top, the word " Lepanto," and, at 
bottom, a facsimile of Cervantes' signature. The oleographs measure n by 8 
inches = 280 by 205 mm., a few run cross-wise, all have descriptions, in Spanish, 
underneath, and nearly all " Parte " and " Cap " indications, above ; there are 
twenty-three to the first, and twenty-one to the second, volume ; they are generally, 
but not always, signed, within the design, R. BALACA ; more than half however of

Artes," subscribed "Don Quijote en Casa de los Duques : El Cuento de Sancho Panza ". 
Cuadro de GERMAN GOMEZ. Exposicion Bosch. (De Fotografia de Laurent.)"; 
the artist's signature, and date 1883, are within the design, left. Published in La 
Ilustracion Espahola y Americana, No. 15, April 22, 1884, where, at p. 251, we read : 

En el cuadro de GOMEZ esta bien espresada la diversa actitud de las figuras : Sancho, reposado 
y de pie, cerca de la Duquesa, refiriendo el cuento ; Don Quijote, exaltado por la ira, puesto " de mil 
colores que sobre lo moreno le jaspeaban " ; los Duques, disimulando la risa, " porque Don Quijote 
no acabase de correrse " ; el eclesiastico, dispondi^ndose & apostrofar al desdichado hidalgo manchego 
con esta furibunda blasfemia andantesca : " Alma de cantaro, ; quien os ha encajado en el clebro 
que sois caballero andante, y que venceis gigantes, y prendeis malandrines ? " 


A lithograph, size sf by 4^ inches = 145 by 108 mm., subscribed " Cn.-R. 
LESLIE. Sancho Panfa dans I'ile de Barataria" . A poor reproduction of art. 226, 
introduced into the text of an article on Leslie by F. FEUILLET DE CONCHES, in 
L 'Artiste, April, 1884, where we read: 


Cette fois, c'est une simple Utc, une etude de caractere. ... La vehemence du pauvre gouverneu 
affame est rendu a souhait. Comme nous 1'avons dit, on ne voit pas le medecin, il n'apparalt qu'une 
main tenant une bagnette. Une premiere peinture de ce sujet figure au Musee de Kensington dans la 
collection Sheepshanks. Leslie a complete le sujet pour lady Chantrey, la veuve du sculteur. II a 
represente Sancho avec le docteur Rezio. Chantrey avait pose, en 1855, pour 1'expression de la tete 
de Sancho. 


A lithograph, size 5^ by 67 inches = 130 by 160 mm., subscribed "CHARLES 
ROBERT LESLIE. Sancho Panfa cJiez la Duchess" and, in left corner, L' Artiste, in 
which journal, No. for April 1884, it was published. It is a vile reproduction of 
art. 216, unworthy of mention except from a historical point of view. 


An engraving, " planche pour publication d'art," Don Quidiotte, engraved by 


An engraving, size 13^ by 10 inches = 340 by 255 mm., signed, within the

Schwartz New York," and subscribed " Entered according to the Act of Congress in 
the year 1885 at the office of the librarian at Washington D. C. by Fishel Adler & 
Schwartz". There may be other lettering on the ordinary prints. My impression, 
the only one I have seen, is signed, in autograph and in pencil, below the design,

outside, HENRI PILLE inv., MANESSE sc., subscribed " Le Livre VI e Annee, Imp. 
A. Quantin". Issued in the January No. of Le Livre, Bibliographic retrospective, 
1885. Same subject as in arts. 284, 294, 303. 


A set of 8 full-page illustrations and 44 wood-cuts in the text : The eight illustra- 
tions are poor reproductions, without the borders, of the engravings after GRANDVILLE 
(art. 235), and measure 5! by 3^ inches = 150 by 100 mm. ; they have the same 
quotations, in coarser letters, and printed. The wood-cuts consist of the twenty-four 
already noticed, to which are added twenty new ones by G. FRAIPONT, and signed by 
him ; these, also vignetted, are rather larger, and measure about 5 by 3^ inches =127

to 5! by 5 1 inches = 128 by 150 mm., the latter folding. A worthless, made up set, 
copied generally from those of GUSTAVE DORS' (art. 247) whose signature sometimes 
appears. Done for

A wood-engraving, in the text, size 5* by 3! inches = 140 by 94 mm., subscribed 
" No. 39. Don Quixote and the Galley Slaves. J. E. HODGSON, R.A.," also " 96 x 72," 
size of the picture from which it is taken, and quotation, in English, from Don 
Quixote. The picture was exhibited in the Royal Academy of 1885 ; the engraving 
is given at p. 21 of Academy Notes for that year. 


A set of i engraved portrait, and 300 1 wood-cuts : The portrait is in a frame 
surmounted by a phosnix, the name Cervantes underneath ; it is signed ANTONIO ROCA 
sc'., and further subscribed " Publicado por Gaspar y Riog, Madrid ". The illustra- 
tions, those for Don Quixote, are vile reproductions of those by TONY JOHANNOT 
(art. 1 86); engraved and signed by A. MARTI, CIBERA, JAIME CASPAR, CAP^Z, 
SIERRA. Done for

A set of 5 engravings, size about 6% by 3 inches = 165 by 75 mm., four bearing, 
underneath, the publisher's trade mark " F. C. Paris," one " F. C." only on the 
end of a book ; they are in outline, and very sketchy, but clever in design ; printed in 
different colours, also coloured ; invented and drawn by JAN Lis for the publishers 
Coquelin &* Rheims, 13 Rue Paul-Lelong, Paris. They are not intended to illustrate 
Don Quixote, but to serve as menu cards. Date of issue 1888. 

1 I have not thought it worth while to count them, but take the number from the title-page. 



An etching, size 65 by gf inches = 159 by 247 mm., representing the Don 
despatching Sancho on his government, by DANIEL VIERGE, signed VIERGE in left 
hand corner, within the design ; no wording. Published in The Portfolio, 1888, p. 212.

Two etchings, size 6| by 4^ inches =170 by 120 mm., unsigned, entitled 
(i) Figure pour Don Quichotte, subject the Don being fed through a tube at the inn, 
Part I chapt. 2 ; and (2) Don Quichotte arme chevalier, both " d'apres des dessins a la 
sepia" by H. FRAGONARD, given at pp. 206 and 290 of Honore Fragonard sa -vie et son 
ceuvre&c. Paris J. Rothschild, etc. 1889. See also art. 98. The original drawings 
are in the possession of M. Groult of Paris. See art. 426. At p. 215 of his noble 
work, Baron ROGER PORTALIS remarks : 

Les Aventures de Don Quichotte etaient bien faites encore pour inspirer son (FRAGONARD'S 
imagination romanesque et son crayon inventif. Pourquoi s'arreta-t-il en chemin ? On connait une 
vingtaine de compositions pour le chef-d'oeuvre de Cervantes, ce qui a permis a Gustave Dore d'etre 
tout A fait neuf (art. 247), sans quoi il aurait eu fort a faire d'egaler Fragonard. Parmi celles que nous 
avons vues, plusieurs ont un entrain remarquable, surtout quand apparaissent des figures de femmes et 
1'excellent Sancho, car de 1'armure du chevalier, il est bien difficile de tirer parti. 

The subject of the second etching noted above, viz. Don Quichotte arme chevalier 
is analogous with one of the eight noticed in art. 98. 

A proces-engraving, in the text, size 4 by 3^ inches = 102 by 83 mm., subscribed 
" VOLLON fils (A.). H. C. Don Quichotte." Reproduction, of a painting No. 2391, 
exhibited in the Salon of 1890, given at p. 165 of Catalogue illustre for that year. 
The Don is represented seated, holding his lance in his left hand, and bending over a 
book, supported on his knee, which he is perusing earnestly, and upon which he rests 
his right elbow. 

A wood-engraving, size g| by 6| inches = 235 by 164 mm., surrounded, at some 
distance from the engraving, by a thin line, and subscribed "Don Quixote's Niece 
and Housekeeper. From the Picture by Sir JOHN GILBERT, R.A. in the Exhibition of 
the Royal Academy." In the bottom, left corner of the design, we read the name 
NAUMANN. Published in The Illustrated London News, May 9, 1891. 605, which 


indication heads the page on which the engraving appears. On p. 604 we read : 
" Sir JOHN GILBERT'S careful study of two women, whom he describes as ' Don 
Quixote's Niece and Housekeeper" (317) is a successful application of chiaro-oscuro now 
so little regarded by our young artists ". 

The original oil painting, size 33 by 25 inches = 840 by 640 mm., was presented 
by the artist, in 1893, to the Corporation of London. 

A proces-production, surrounded by a line, size, from line to Jine, 8J by 6} inches 
= 225 by 158 mm., subscribed "Don Quixote's Niece and Housekeeper. (From the

Don Quixote discourses upon arms and letters to the company at the inn book IV. 
chap. 10. Sir JOHN GILBERT, R.A." Reproduced from an oil painting, measuring, 
as also stated under the reproduction, 43 by 60 inches = 1090 by 1530 mm., and 
exhibited at Burlington House, 1891. Given at p. 53 of The Academy Notes May 
1891 ; also in Academy Sketches. 


A wood-engraving, size 15^ by 17^ inches = 395 by 445 mm., subscribed "Don 
Quixote discoursing upon arms and letters to the company at the Inn from the Picture by 
Sir JOHN GILBERT, R.A., exhibited in the Royal Academy, 1891." ; above which is the 
following quotation : " Verily, Gentlemen, if it be well considered, great and unheard-of 
things do they who profess the order of Knight Errantry ". Above the engraving are : 
" The Graphic, January 30, 1892," and the pages which it occupies in that journal, viz. 
152, 153. Within the design are the signatures, J. G., in monogram, with date 1890, 
and H. SCHEU sc. Same as in art. 317. 

A set of 6 coloured chromo lithographs, and numerous wood-engravings : The 
lithographs measure 6| by 4 T V inches = 155 by 104 mm., are signed, within 
the design, E. B., and have descriptions, in English, underneath ; they possess no 



artistic merit. The wood-engravings, of which fifteen are full-page, the rest in the 
text, are bad reproductions of those after TONY JOHANNOT (art. 186). Done for

There is a list of the 15 " Full Page Illustrations" which does not include the 
6 coloured chromo lithographs. 

The same edition exists with a different title-page ; it is without date, and has 
" Illustrated by TONY JOHANNOT" only. 


A set of i portrait, and 101 full-page engravings on wood, all vignetted and 
surrounded by a fancy line, size,' from line to line, 6 by 4 inches = 155 by 102 mm. : 
The portrait, under which is " Miguel Cervantes de Saavedra," is signed by E. 
LAVILLE and ANDREW BEST LELOIR. Of the illustrations, fifty-one to the first, and 
fifty to the second, volume, the first illustration only is signed AKXA ; a few are 
cross ways; all have, underneath, outside the line, "I" or "II," according to 
the volume they belong to, and "S" indications; they are by C. OFFTERDINGER, 
from the designs of JONY JOHANNOT (art. 186). Done for

wood: The frontispiece, size 8 by 5^ inches = 204 by 132 mm., is signed, in the 
design, HENRI PILLE, has underneath the name Don Quichotte, and resembles, but is 
not identical with, the designs of that artist noticed in arts. 284, 294, 303, 304. The 
illustrations are of various sizes, the last one of all, on p. 320, alone is signed. 
The artistic merit of this set is unequal, and the reproduction by proces is unsatis- 
factory. Done for

Gallery Pictures, 1893. The subject is that described in art. 216. 



A set of i portrait, and 300 illustrations, vile reproductions of those of TONY 
JOHANNOT (art. 186). On the verso of the title-page is a reproduction of the 
" Escudo que figuraba en la primera edicion, impresa por Juan de la Cuesta en 
Madrid en 1605 ". The great feature of this reprint is an original, fancy outer 
wrapper with a portrait of Cervantes, and printed with fancy type in colours and 
gold, signed P. CARCEDO dibujo. Done for

A lithograph, size 6\ by 8 inches = 158 by 205 mm., subscribed "Don Quixote

SLEIGH ; outside the design, left, the size of the original picture 52 x 70. Given in 
Royal Academy Pictures, Cassell & Co., 1894, part 3, being the supplement to the 
Magazine of Art. The picture in the Catalogue of the Exhibition for 1894 is No. 207.

Don Quixote and Sancho Panza. RALPH PEACOCK. 52x70"; signed, within the 
design, left, ^^' Given in Academy Notes 1894, edited by Henry Blackburn, p. 63. 
* Same as in arts. 325 and 326. 


An illustrated title-page, and 3 lithographs : On the title-page, which is illustrated 
with the windmill adventure, we read, above, "La Ilustracion Artistica Ano XIV 
Num. 680," within the design " a Cervantes," and, below, " Barcelona. Enero. 
1895." The three lithographs, on pp. 39, 40 and 41 of the publication, vary in size, 
the largest measuring iz| by 8| inches = 340 by 260 mm.; they are " dibujos 
ineditos de JOSE JIMENEZ ARANDA," as printed below each engraving ; they also bear, 
below, the following quotations: (i) "no ha mucho tiempo que vivia un hidalgo de 
los de lanza ..." (Cap. i.) ; (2) "que se le pasaban las noches leyendo de claro en 
claro . . ." ; (3) " diera el, por dar, una mano de coces . . .". The compositions are 
scarcely quixotesque, and without the indications which accompany them, might be 
taken for illustrations of any other book. Nevertheless, at p. 24 of the No. in 
question we read the following commendation from the pen of Senor J. L. PELLICER : 

De . . . Jimenez Aranda se reproducer! en este numero cuatro (there are three only) dibujos 
ineditos que gustoso ha facilitado para contribuir con sus firmes cualidades de dibujante a avalorar 
la presente publication. . . . Hace ya anos que nuestro querfdo amigo y antiguo companero se ocupa 
en la labor, para el predilecta, de representar graficamente el poema de Cervantes, no en el sentido 
de ilustrarlo, como vulgarmente se dice, no tratando de decorar un libro, sino con el proposito de 
explicarlo a su manera y realizar por el dibujo, con enlace natural, una sintesis clara y razonada de 
la obra. 

I may add that in two of the designs we find the signature C. Angerer & Gosck, 
as lithographers. The outer wrapper, printed in colours and illustrated, has a portrait 
of Cervantes, and N. 679. 



A set of 2 engraved frontispieces, and 15 engravings, size about 4f by z\ inches 
= 120 by 67 mm., all signed, generally, but not always, within the design, A. 
CLOUZIER : Of the frontispieces, that for the first volume has, in the top left corner, 
"T. I," and below, on a shield, " Cavallero Desamorado"; that for the second 
volume, has below, on a shield, " Cauallero de los Amores Tom. II 6 ." ; in the first 
the Don and Sancho are on foot with Rosinante and Dapple ; in the second Quixote 
is in the centre on foot, Panza mounted to the left, Rosinante to the right. The 
engravings for Vol. I have "ch." "T." and "P." indications, at top, within the 
design; those for Vol. II "ch." and "P." indications only, at top, generally, but 
not always, within the design. The set is somewhat crude, but curious and effective.

both have, on a tablet, below the illustration, but forming part of the design,

comparing the two editions I cannot speak positively. The engravings are said to 
be by SCHERM.

A Continuation of the History and Adventures of the renoivned Don Quixote de la 
Mancha. Written etc. by ALONZO FERNANDEZ DE AVELLANEDA. Translated etc. by 
WILLIAM AUGUSTUS YARDLEY, Esq. In Two Volumes. London : Printed for Harrison 
and Co. No. 18, Paternoster Row. MDCCLXXXIV. 8. Part of "The Novelist's 


A wood-engraving, size 2$ by 3! inches = 60 by 87 mm., signed, in bottom corners, 
left, J. L., right, RAMBERT; it represents the Don and Sancho mounted on their 
respective animals, the squire preceding the knight. It serves as a title-vignette to 

DE LAVIGNE etc. Paris Didier, etc. 1853. Large 8. 




A series of 7 figures, and i vehicle, on two sheets : Each sheet measures 6 by 
14 inches = 150 by 355 mm. ; and the figures upon them are about 3 to 3^ inches = 
75 to 90 mm. high, the vehicle naturally higher. One sheet is headed Die 3 l Partt 
Don Quixote de la Mancha Caiiallero de la triste figura, and each figure has a name, 
above; they march in the following order: (i) "El Enano," mounted, blowing a 
horn ; (2) " El Cura," on foot, carrying a windmill ; (3) " El Barbiera," walking, 
bearing a tub; (4) "La Sin vor Dulcinea del Tobosa," on foot; (5) "El ingenioso 
Hidalgo Don Quixote de la Mancha, Cavallero de la triste figura," on horseback, 
richly attired, with flowing plumes on his helmet, and bearing a long lance and a 
shield ; (6) " Sancho Panca Scudiero. Don Quixote," on his ass, well dressed, also 
carrying lance and shield ; (7) " La Linda Maritornes," on foot, with large ruff round 
her neck ; the vehicle is a kind of two-wheeled cart hearing a fortress, out of the 
tower of which appears a jester blowing a horn ; the cart is drawn by two oxen. 
Under the figure of Don Quixote appears the following signature : ANDREAS BRET- 
SCHNEIDER. These most interesting figures, of which both drawing and engraving 
are good, and costume correct, represent one of the processions of the baptismal 
festival given at Dessau on the 27th and 28th October 1613, and were done to 
illustrate the description of those festivities contained in a volume entitled : 

Cartel, Auffzuge, Vers und Abrisse, So bey d&r Furstlichen Kindtauff, vn frewdenfest 
zu Dessa, den 27. vnd 28. Octob. vorlauffenden 1613. Jahrs, Jn gehaltenem Ringel vnd 
Quintanen Rennen, Auch Balletten und Tantzen, den verordneten Herrn Judidrern : 
Zufbrderst aber den Anwesenden Furstlichen Personen vnd Ansehenlichen gesandten, Wie

in HENNING GROSSEN des alter n Druckerey verfertiget, M. DC. XIV. 

Small oblong 4, pp. 101 with 4 unnumbered, engraved and illustrated title-page 
printed in red and black. The colophon reads : " In vorlegung HENNING GROSSEN, 
des Eltern Buchdndlers, etc. Gedruckt zu Leipzig, Durch JVSTUM JANSONIUM Danum. 
Jmjahr: M.DC.XIII." 

The letter-press referring to the Quixot procession covers pp. 25 to 40, and is in 
two parts, with the following titles : " Antwort Don Quixote de la Mancha Cavallero, 
de la triste figura, Auff der Herren Mantenatorn Cartel," and " Don Quixote de la 
Mancha Cavallero de la triste figura a todos los Cavalleros de esta Corte ". The 
former is in prose, partly German partly Spanish, the latter in verse and in German, 
in spite of its Spanish title. 

1 It would seem that three sheets are needed to form the entire procession ; I have seen two only. 



A set of i frontispiece and 6 engravings : The frontispiece, size 4$ by 2$ inches 
= 113 by 66 mm., bears, under the design, " Le Desespoir Amoureux Avec les Visions 
de Don Quichotte," and is signed, within the engraving, I: SCHIJHVOET inv. et fee. 
The engravings, which measure about 4$ by 2 inches = in by 60 mm., bear page 
indications, at top, right corner, and are unsigned. The designs and engraving are 
good. Done for 

Le Desespoir Amoureux, avec Les Nouvelles Visions de Don Quichotte. Histoire 
Espagnole. A Amsterdam, Chez Jo sue Steenhouwer, & Hermanus Uytwerf, Sur It Rockin 
vis a vis la porte de la Bourse. MDCCXV. 12. 


An engraved frontispiece, size 5^ by 3^ inches = 130 by 80 mm., signed, within 
the design, J. v. SCHLEY del. et sculp. 1738. It is in three compartments : (i) Above, 
a nude female figure in an oval frame, in which the motto " Audaces Fortuna 
Juvat," is placed between two female figures draped and seated. (2) In the middle, 
six male figures, viz Quixote, Panza and the Barber, to whom three men, of whom 
one kneeling, offer letters. (3) A group of allegorical figures, male and female, 
having no reference to Don Quixote. Above, within the design, we read " Colligit 
unus. Alter emendat. Bibliopolium P. Paupie." ; below, outside the design, but 
engraved, " Isaac Onis, Aaron Monceca, et Jacob Brito, presentent leurs Lettres 
Juives a Dom (sic) Quichotte, Sancho Pansa, et Maitre Nicolas le Barbier". Serves 
as frontispiece to

An engraving, size 12 by 15^ inches = 303 by 384 mm., signed A. VAN DER 
GROEN pinx. 1774, R. VINKELES del. & figur. inv. et del., R. & H. VINKELES sculp. 
1776 ; underneath we read : 

Le Bois 


Au secours ! au secours ! je meurs ! ah ! finissez ! 


Le coquin crie encor : aliens, amis ! Chantez ! 
Qu'il meure avec plaisir ! 

And "Don Quichotte aux Noces de Camache, Act III, Scene x Te Amsterdam by 
Johannes Smit en Zoon, met privilegie". This engraving also exists, unsigned, 
and before all letters. The scene is an avenue of lofty trees, in the foreground 



Sancho is being tossed in a blanket by four men ; a fifth, apparently a cook, or 
scullion, stands by enjoying the sport ; to the left are a loaf, a plate on which is a 
duck or fowl, a flask and a wineglass ; in the background a table spread for a repast, 
with chairs around ; festoons are suspended from the trees. The composition, 
especially the treatment of the trees, is happy, and the engraving very good. 


A set of i engraving, and i engraved and illustrated title-page : The former 
measures, from line to line by which it is surrounded, 3^ by 2^ inches = 95 by 
54 mm., has a quotation, in English, and is signed T. UWINS del., STOWE sculp. ; 
underneath we read " Pub. by J. Walker, Paternoster Row, and J. Harris, S l . Pauls 
Church Yard ". The vignette on title-page, size about 2f by z\ inches = 62 by 
58 mm., is signed T. UWINS del., STOWE sculp. The printed title-page reads : 

The Spiritual Quixote, etc. London : Printed for J. Walker ; (and twenty other 
firms). 1808. 

Reissued in 1816 by Walker and Edwards, with same engravings. Serial with, 
and as if intended to accompany, the Don Quixote of the same publisher (art. in). 
This novel, from the pen of the Rev. RICHARD GRAVES, has little more to do with the 
romance of Cervantes than the word which has been borrowed for the title. 


A coloured engraving, surrounded by a line, size \i\ by 15^ inches = 293 by 
385 mm., entitled, above, within the lines, Le moderne Don Quichotte ; below, also 
within the lines, we read: " appel a 1'Impartialite," and "depose a la direction 
Generale de la Librairie ". There are five male figures, the chief of which is the Don, 
on whose shield is inscribed : " Fin du Proces," and whose spear terminates with a Y, 
over which is the number i, Quixote himself is numbered 2, leading to the following 
inscriptions, below, outside the lines : " (i) Voyez dans le journal de 1'Empire du 2 
Fev r . 1'article signe Y," and "(2) Accepte de mon corps 1'epaisseur favorable (Boileau 
Poeme du Lutrin)". Of the other figures: one, in clerical costume, holds a brick and 
a bundle of papers on which is inscribed " Conaxa " ; the second has a bundle of 
papers marked " Mes Revelations " and an empty purse. Above are three hands 
holding papers inscribed respectively : " Petite Lettre sur un Grand Sujet " ; 
" Stephaneide " ; and " Lettre de Piron ". Below are two heads of seraphs both 
shouting " au Voleur". A peacock, flying, above, and two toads, on the ground, 
complete the composition. Although the drawing and engraving of this caricature 
are both good there is no signature. It has reference to the dispute between C. G. 
ETIENNE and LEBRUN-TOSSA concerning the plagiarisms in Les Deux Gendres, which 
comedy Etienne was accused of having stolen from Conaxa. Date 1812. 



A set of 4 coloured engravings, of unequal size, varying from 6f by 4$ inches 
= 172 by 120 mm. to 7^ by 55 inches = 200 by 134 mm., unsigned, and unnumbered ; 
of different execution and design ; illustrating the following scenes : (i) " Don Quixote 
Knighted by the Innkeeper," (2) " Dispute between Sancho and the Barber," (3) " Ex- 
amination of Don Quixotte's Library," (4) Sancho as Governor of Barataria ". Done for 

The Spirit of Cervantes ; or, Don Quixote Abridged. Being a Selection of the Episodes 
and Incidents, with a Summary Sketch of the Story of that Popular Romance. In Two 
Parts, with Superior Coloured Engravings. London : Printed for F f C. & J. Rivington, 
etc. 1820. Large 8. 

The pagination runs through both parts, thus forming a single volume. The 
same volume exists with the same engravings, and with the same title-page, except 
that the words "with Superior Coloured Engravings" are omitted. 

Reissued, with the same plates, under the title : 

The Spirit of Don Quixote ; being a selection etc. (as above). Plates. London: 
Charles Tilt, 86 Fleet-Street. MDCCCXXXI. 8. 

Both editions are now scarce. One of the plates, viz. " Examination of Don 
Quixotte's Library," forms the frontispiece to 

Cerrantes as a Novelist ; from a Selection of the Episodes and Incidents of the Popular 
Romance of Don Quixote. In Two Parts. London : Published for the Editor, by 
Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme, and Brown, etc. 1822. 8. 

These three works are in reality the same, not reprints, but only reissues with 
different titles and prefaces. 


An engraving, size 3^ by 2 if inches = 98 by 75 mm., entitled May Talbot and 
further subscribed " Painted by A. COOPER, R.A., Engraved by J. C. EDWARDS, Pub. 
by W. Marshall, i Holborn Bars, London, 1829, Printed by E. BRAIN ". Published 
in The Gem, London, 1829, to illustrate a poem by Mrs. BALMANNO, called May Talbot, 
given at p. 55 of that publication. This plate should in reality not be included in my 
compilation as it has nothing to do with Don Quixote ; but it is not infrequently 
supposed to represent the Duke and Duchess going hawking, and offered as such, 
especially when the title is wanting, as in the impressions before letters ; consequently 
I mention it ; one of these impressions, on India paper, now before me, has the 
signatures of painter and engraver done with the point, but the words " Painted by " 
and "Engraved by" are omitted. 


A wood-engraving, vignetted, size 3^ by 2-| inches = 83 by 67 mm., unsigned, 
subscribed "Don Quixote. Don Quixote. Yield! or you die! Act I. Scene i"; 
subject, the capture of Mambrino's helmet. It serves as a frontispiece to

Two Acts. By GEORGE ALMAR, Esq. etc. Embellished with a Fine Engraving, From 
a Drawing taken in the Theatre. London : John Cumberland, etc. 12, no date, 
published in 1833. 

It forms No. 131 of Cumberland's Minor Theatre. On the illustrated outer 
wrapper we read that the " fine wood-engraving " is by Mr. R. CRUIKSHANK. 


A wood-engraving, vignetted, size 4 by 4 inches = 102 by 102 mm., signed 
D. H. FRISTON ; subject, the capture of Mambrino's helmet, as in art. 345, but 
somewhat differently treated, and better drawn and engraved. It decorates the 
outer wrapper, and title-page, of 

Don Quixote ; or, the Knight of the Woeful Countenance. A Romantic Drama, in 
twoacts. By GEORGE ALMAR. First Performed at the Surrey Theatre, April?,, 1833. 8.

Rambles in the Footsteps of Don Quixote by the late H. D. INGLIS, etc. With 
Illustrations by GEORGE CRUIKSHANK. London: Whittaker and Co. 1837. 8 

These illustrations are perhaps out of place in the present compilation, as one 
only, the tailpiece at the end of the volume, directly illustrates the work of Cervantes. 


A wood-engraving, representing a scene from the new Opera of Don Quixote, in 
The Illustrated News, Vol. VIII., January to June, 1846, p. 97. 


A set of i wood-engraving, and 12 plates, all unsigned: The wood-engraving 
measures 2f by 5 inches = 70 by 127 mm., and is headed " Scene 2 " ; it is of vile 
execution. The plates, size 6| by 8 inches = 165 by 205 mm., have, on Plate No. i, 
the following title : Redington's Characters o Scenes in Don Quixote, 4 Plates Characters, 
5 Scenes, 2 Wings & i Top Drop. Total 12 with book to the above. All have a 
heading, are numbered, and have, underneath, the publisher's name and address ; on 
each plate of characters there are from seven to ten figures, each with its name 
underneath. These plates were issued both plain at i penny each, and coloured at 
2 pence each. Done for

I may mention that in the set of plates before me the last one does not bear 
Redington's name, but is headed: Webb's New Top Drops to suit all pieces Plate i, 
and has, below, Webb's name and address. The wood-engraving, first mentioned, 
serves as frontispiece to the book. Neither book nor plates are dated, published 
about 1850.

L. RUET, sc., representing Cervantes, astride on a chair, contemplating the Don and 
his Squire advancing to attack the windmills. It forms the headpiece to the chapter 



on Cervantes in Victor Hugo's William Shakespeare, Edition Nationale, Paris, 1894, 
4, p. 103. To the issue on Japanese paper the etching, eau-forte, is added on 
a separate leaf, and with a spider as a remarque, underneath the design. 


A small figure of Don Quixote, lance in hand, standing before a windmill, is 
introduced in a vignetted etching, a Study in Design for an Ex-Libris by HENRIOT. 
It is signed by that artist, and by MICHELET, sc. Given in The Book-Lover s Almanac

An etching, size 4 by i\ inches = 102 by 71 mm., unsigned, with " Ex Libris 
Cervantes " in the middle of the design ; the design, which consists of two windmills, 
the head of Dulcinea, and Quixote and Panza mounted, is thus described by the 
publisher M. L. JOLY : " Don Quichotte qui nous emporte en croupe derriere lui, en 
compagnie de Sancho Pan^a, sans que nous quittions des yeux la charmante image 
de Dulcinee du Toboso qui semble dominer, de son fin sourire, toute la scene qui se

A wood-engraving, vignetted, and in five compartments, the middle one round, 
entire size about 13 by i8f inches = 330 by 477 mm., signed HENRI PILLE, and 
BORDIER Sc., and subscribed: "'Don Quichotte' au Theatre Chatelet Dessin de 
Henri Pille." Its object appears to be to indicate the failure of M. SARDOU'S piece. 
Given in Le Courrier Franfais, 24 Fevrier, 1895. 


In Le Monde Th'eatral Illustre are given the portraits of 9 actors and actresses who 
played in M. SARDOU'S Don Quichotte (arts. 356, 357), viz. MM. BARRAL, Don

A poster, headed Don Quichotte, printed in colours, signed, within the design, 
A. CHOUBRAC, and subscribed " Imp. G. Massias, 17 Passage Daudin, Paris (Ateliers

appeared in two sizes, the smaller of which measures about 17} by 13^ inches = 440

An engraving, surrounded by a line, size, from line to line, 5! by 3^ inches = 
136 by 80 mm., subscribed, within the lines, " Retrato de Cervantes de Saavedra por

expression and costume are identical with those of the 4to portrait by Kent (art 39), 
but the position of the figure is altered, the face is turned, and the background, with 
Don Quixote, etc., is done away with. 


An engraving, surrounded by two lines, size from line to line, 5f by 3-^ inches 
136 by 81 mm., subscribed, within the lines, " Retrato de Cervantes de Saavedra por

An engraving, size 4f by 3 inches = in by 77 mm., copied apparently from that 
engraved by Folkema, or Gentot (arts. 360, 362), unsigned, subscribed " Michael de 
Cervantes Saavedra Author of Don Quixote London Published by J. Souter 
Dec', i, 1824." 

3 6 4- 

An engraving, surrounded by three lines, size, from line to line, 4^ by 3 T \ inches 
= 105 by 81 mm., subscribed, outside the lines, " Grave d'apres 1'original de G. KENT 
par CAZENAVE. Michel de Cervantes Celebre Auteur Espagnol Ne en 1547 mort en 
1616." It has nothing whatever to do with the portrait by Kent (art. 39), but is 
copied, almost exactly, from that by DEVERIA (art. 143), the plain background of the 
latter being here replaced by a curtain and a tassel. 


An engraving, octagon shape, size 3! by 2y inches = 92 by 70 mm., signed, 
J. DEL CASTILLO pinx., MANSFELD sc., subscribed, with name in full, Miguel de 
Cervantes Saavedra, and "Zwickau b. d. G. Schuman 1818". It is a poor, reduced 
copy, badly engraved, of that noticed in art. 72, without the ornamental frame. The 
same portrait is also to be found, in a frame, measuring 5f by 3! inches = 147 by 
91 mm., with the signatures, done by the point, outside the frame. 


An engraving, in outline, in a frame composed of four double lines, measurement, 
from outer line to line, 3 by 2 T 5 F inches = 92 by 58 mm., with name Cervantes under 
the likeness, signed, outside the frame, JOSEPH DEL CASTILLO del'., LANDON direx'. ; 
above " Hist. d'Espagne ". 


An engraving, in outline, the likeness in an oval frame, placed on a frame, and 
enclosed in a third frame, surrounded by two lines, outer measurement 5-^ by 3! 
inches = 128 by 89 mm. ; the name M. de Cervantes outside the oval, but inside the 
inner, square, frame ; unsigned. On the verso we read " Miguel de Cervantes 
Saavedra, poete. D'apres le Tableau peint par J. DE CASTILLO " (art. 72). 


An engraving, size 6^ by 3! inches = 153 by 86 mm., signed H. LIPS sculp. 
The head with turned up moustache, pointed beard, arched nose, and in a ruff, appears 
in an oval frame standing on a base, upon which is engraved the name Cervantes. 
On some impressions one finds, underneath, " Zullichau bey Darnmann ". Although 
this is ascribed by SIEURIN to Chodowiecki, it differs materially from the portrait 
noticed in art. 74. 


3 6 9- 

An engraving, size 5$ by 3 inches = 130 by 76 mm., signed F. M. QUVERDO 
del., C. S. GAUCHER eff. incid. The same engraving exists in another state, viz., 
with the name M 1 . de Cervantes in the ribbon above the head, and the signatures 
QUEVERDO inv., GAUCHER Sculp., without initials or accent, and more firmly en- 
graved. Concerning this portrait, which is evidently copied from that by CASTILLO 
(art. 72), although turned, there are one or two points of doubt, (i) MM. PORTALIS 
and BRALDI class it among the works of CHARLES ETIENNE GAUCHER, although the 
second! initial; of the signature is clearly an S ; " sous le portrait," they write, " un 
medallion ovale representant Galatee," defining without doubt the portrait in question. 
(2) COHEN notes it as belonging to the edition of Don Quichotte, an VII (art. 96), 
which M. CROTTET points out to be incorrect. (3) I have the portrait in a copy ot 
Don Quichotte An VI, as already indicated in art. 94, to which edition it appears 
rightly to belong. I may add that M. CROTTET'S opinion is shared by a writer in Le 
XVIII' Siecle Galant et Litteraire, III, 376, who appears to speak with authority. 


An engraving, size nf by 7! inches = 295 by 187 mm., signed D. I. FERRO lo 
dib ., D. F. SELMA lo grab . : Cervantes is represented three-quarter-face, with 
moustache and pointed beard, in a ruff, his left arm resting on an open volume. On 
a tablet, underneath the portrait, which is in a frame, we read : " Miguel de Cervantes 
Saavedra. Natural de Alcala de Henares, ingenio original, admirable en el habla 
Castellana, y Autor de la immortal Fabula del Quixote. Murio en Madrid a los 68. 
a s . en el de 1615." An important portrait, well engraved. 

An engraving, surrounded by a thin line, size, from line to line, 5^ by 4! inches 
= 128 by 105 mm., subscribed " Engraved by E. MACKENZIE. Cervantes. After the 
Spanish Print, engraved by D. F. SELMA. Under the Superintendence of the Society 
for the Diffusion of Useful Knowledge. London, Published by Charles Knight, 
Ludgate Street." It is copied from that noticed in art. 370, but the left hand and 
book are omitted, as well as the tablet. 


An engraving, size 5^ by 4^ inches = 134 by 104 mm., subscribed : " Engraved 
by E. MACKENZIE after a Spanish Print Engraved by D. F. SELMA. Cervantes. 
William Mackenzie. Glasgow. Edinburgh. London & New York." It is copied from 
that noticed in art. 370, and resembles at first sight that in art. 371, but the face is 
lighter and clearer, and the background is architectural, whereas that in art. 371 is like 
the original quite plain. SIEURIN notes a portrait " in-8, grave a Londres par

the previous art., or to those mentioned in arts. 90 and 105, I will not presume to 


An engraving, size 3^ by iyf inches = 84 by 50 mm., the portrait, copied from 
that by CASTILLO (art. 72) and turned; it is in an oval frame decorated with fruit, 
masks etc., and has, underneath, a scene with a shepherdess, Quixote, and Sancho 
mounted ; between the portrait and the scene is the name, M. de Cervantes ; it is 
signed FLOUEST del., BOILY sculp., and has, below, the motto, " II corrigea son Siecle 
et mourut de misere ". 


An engraving, size 3^- by 2^ inches = 84 by 55 rnm., unsigned ; the design and 
disposition are similar to that by FLOUEST (art. 373), but it is badly engraved ; the 
name in the middle is Cervantes only, with same motto underneath. 


An engraving, size 3^ by i} inches = 84 by 50 mm., design as in art. 374 ; 
there is in the middle the name. M. de Cervantes, and the same motto underneath ; 
signed FLOUEST del., DE LA RUE sc. Both likeness and scene are turned from the 
engraving noticed in art. 373. 


An engraving, size 3^ by ijf inches = 84 by 50 mm., design as in art. 373, 
turned ; the name, M. de Cervantes, is in the middle, with the same motto under- 
neath ; signed FLOUEST del.,. GUYARD Sculp. 


An engraving, size 7^ by 6 inches = 184 by 160 mm., unsigned, subscribed, 
"Michel de Cervantes Ne a Alcala de Minares en Castille le 9 Octobre 1547". 
Cervantes is represented three-quarter face, with turned up moustache and small 
beard, a flat scolloped collar and chain round his neck, he is looking out of the window 
of a solid stone building, which might be taken for a prison, but that there are no bars 
to the window. The engraving is firm and good. 


A lithograph, size 9^ by 12^ inches = 250 by 307 mm.: Cervantes in prison, 
reclines on the floor with his legs extended, and his back against the wall ; he 
supports his head with his left hand, while his right hand rests upon a manuscript, 
on which we read "histoire de Don Quichotte de la Manche " ; signed, within the 


design, R. DESORMES ; subscribed, outside the design, " a l'Imp ie . Lithogi"'. de C. 
Motte rue des Marais N 13," and entitled Michel Cervantes composant Don Quichotte 
dans les cachots de {'Inquisition. The design is by PIERRE PATE"-DESORMES, done 
beginning of this century. 


An engraving, size yf by 5^ inches = 187 by 150 mm., signed VELASQUEZ pinx., 
Dessine et grave par BOUVIER; with the name, Cervantes, in bold, open letters; and 
further subscribed, " D'aprfes le tableau original du Cabinet de. M. Briere a Geneve. 
Grave pour la Societe des Amis des Beaux Arts. Geneve 1825. Imprime par 
TATTEGRAIN." Cervantes is represented full face, with pointed beard, and in a large 
flat collar. An important engraving. 


M. BERALDi 1 notes a portrait of Cervantes after VELASQUEZ, engraved by 
AUGUSTE LEISNIER, which I have not seen. 


An engraving, size 2^ by if inches = 56 by 45 mm., signed BERTONNIER, 1827. 
Given in the Iconographie instructive. Probably identical with that noticed by M. 
BERALDI as "format in-i8 (de 6 cent, environ)". 


An engraving, size 2^ by n^ inches = 59 by 43 mm., signed A. DUTILLOIS. 
The same exists surrounded by three fine lines, signature as above, subscribed 
"Cervantes Ne en 1547 Mort en 1616". Although not vignetted, it probably 
belongs to the sixteen engravings, noticed in art. 165, thus making up the "17 
gravures" specified by SIEURIN, which no doubt appeared in an edition of Don 
Quixote unknown to me. 


SIEURIN mentions 2 engravings by HOPWOOD:" the one "in-i8"; the other 
" in-8 pour Furne". I have seen neither. 


A portrait of Cervantes forms No i of a group of seven others, signed LLANTA

2 M. BERALDI notices an engraver of portraits, James Hoopwood, "qui travaillait a Paris de 
1828 a 1850," presumably intended for the same man, but he does not include in his list either of the 
portraits of Cervantes. 



Four rough wood-cuts in outline, and in the text, size about 5! by 4$ inches =

autograph. The portrait represents the back and head of a boatman, wearing a 



slouched hat, and looking round over his right shoulder ; he has a moustache and 
pointed beard. It serves as frontispiece to 

Nuevos Documentos para ilustrar la Vida de Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra ; con etc. 
las Pruebas de la Autenticidad de su Verdadero Retrato, par D. JOSE MARIA ASENSIO jc 
TOLEDO. Precedidos de una Carta escrita por el Sr. D. JUAN EUJENIO HARTZENBUSCH, 
e ilustrados con la copia del Retrato que pinto FRANCISCO PACHECO, sacada de un Dibujo 
del Sr. D. EDUARDO CANO. Sevilla ; Imprenta etc. de D.Jose M. Geofrin, etc. 1864. 4. 

I venture to transcribe the interesting remarks of HARTZENBUSCH concerning the 
various attempts which have been made to portray the physiognomy of the illustrious 
author of Don Quixote, and some of the observations offered by ASENSIO in proof of 
the authenticity of the portrait now offered. HARTZENBUSCH writes : 

Al entrar el siglo pasado no se conocia de Cervantes efigie ninguna. Los editores de la 
magnifica impresion del Quijote, hecha en Londres en 1738 (art. 39), encargaron que se les buscase 
en Espana la fisionomia de nuestro autor, y se dijo que no habiendo dado fruto las diligencias, el 
habil dibujante KENT ideo un retrato de Miguel Cervantes con arreglo a lo que habia expresado 
acerca de si el mismo Cervantes en el prologo de sus novelas. El ano 1773, epoca en que disponia 
la Real Academia Espanola la excelente edicion en cuatro volumenes que salio a luz en 1780 (art. 72), 
se supo que el Sr. Conde del AGUILA, residente en Sevilla, poseia un retrato de Cervantes pintado al 
oleo : solicito del Conde nuestra Academia permiso para sacar una copia, y el Conde se lo regalo 
generosamente. Vista la pintura en Madrid, se noto con sorpresa que se parecia tanto & la estampa 
de la edicion de Londres, invencion de KENT, segun dijo el Doctor OLFIELD (sic), que era fuerza pensar 
6 que habia sido hecho por la Umina el cuadro, 6 aquella por cste. Pregunto sobre tan rara 
particularidad al Conde el Secretario de la Academia D. FRANCISCO ANTONIO DE ANGULO, y el Sr. 
Conde contesto desde Sevilla a 8 de Diciembre de dicho ano 73 : " Lo compre (el retrato) aiios ha en 
esa Corte de un F. Bracho, que negociaba en pinturas. No me informo donde lo habia adquirido. 
Vendiomelo por de Alonso del Arco, y no dude lo fuese, conociendo su pincel. Los editores de 
Londres se sabe solicitaron con empeno un retrato de Cervantes . . . pudo suceder consiguieran 
sacar ahi copia de ese ". Y, en efecto, bien pudo ocurrir que el dueno del retrato en 1738 no quisiera 
venderle ni facilitar copia de el para una edicion extranjera, y que alguien de su casa, hijo, esposa 6 
criado, permitiese tomar en secreto un apunte del cuadro, con la condicion de no decirlo, y suponiendo 
que impresa la obra no llegaria facilmente un ejemplar de ella 4 manos del negative poseedor, quiza 
mas aficionado a pinturas que a Hbros. Como quiera que fuese, el retrato que adorna hoy la sala de 
Comisiones de la Academia, del cual proceden todos los de Cervantes divulgados hasta poco ha por 
el mundo, parece copia, y no muy buena y restaurada, pero no posterior a la estampa de Londres. 
Comparandole con la fotografia que ha de acompanar al cuaderno de V., me parece que uno y otro 
paeden representar a la misma persona, el uno cuando joven, el otro en edad ya mas que madura : las 
facciones se corresponden bastante, a excepcion de la curva de la nariz, que en el retrato poseido por la 
Academia es mayor al partir de la frente que en el retrato de Francisco Pacheco. La diferencia puede 
provenir 6 de que en el lienzo de la Academia el copiante 6 el restaurador exagero algun tanto la 
curvatura, 6 de que Francisco Pacheco, pues al fin representaba a Cervantes, no como tal, sino como 
un barquero a las ordenes de San Pedro Nolasco, no reparo en suavizar un poco la curva aguilefia del 
original. Si uno de nuestros buenos artistas dilatase al tamano del natural, que es el del retrato de 
Cervantes existente en nuestra Academia, la cabeza de ese barquero ; si, omitido el sombrero humilde 
que Pacheco le puso, le hiciese mostrar descubierta la frente desembarazada del retrato academico ; 
si le cubriera la garganta con una elegante 6 modesta gola, creo que nadie dudaria decir, puesto al 
frente de ambas imagenes : " Este es Cervantes & los treinta afios y pocos mas, y este a los cincuenta 
lo menos: de joven tuvo mejor-pintor que en edad avanzada". 

We will now succinctly consider what Sr. ASENSIO has to say himself concerning 
his discovery of "El precioso retrato" which "ha sido calcado sobre el orijinal de 


PACHECO por nuestro escelentisimo artista D. EDUARDO CANO ". Having read in an 
anonymous manuscript " folleto intitulado Relation de cosas de Sevilla de 1590 d 1640," 
that " en uno de los seis cuadros que en competencia pintaron FRANCISCO PACHECO y 
ALONSO VAZQUEZ para el claustro del convento Casa grande de la Merced, esta 
retratado Miguel de Cervantes con otras personas que habian estado en Arjel," etc., 
he examined those pictures, now in the Museo Provincial of Seville. He continues : 

Vamos a ecsaminar el cuadro de Francisco Pacheco que lleva el numero 19. Representa, segun 
el catalogo, a S. Pedro Nolasco en uno de los pasos de su vida y lo primero es averiguar cual paso 
sea este. . 

Sin vacilar puede afirmarse, que es el embarque de los Padres Redentores en las playas africanas, 
para regresar a Espana despues de haber ejercitado su piadoso instituo. 

Parece el Santo en tierra en primer trmino con un cautivo que se dispone a tomarlo en hombros 
para llevarlo a una barca, que esta a la derecha, en la cual se v ya sentado otro Padre mercenario, 
y en la que se ocupan dos cautivos en ir colocando los cofres de la redencion, bien conocidos por el 
escudo de la Merced pintado en ellos. La barca est& gobernada por un barquero, que de pi en la 
proa la sujeta con un bichero clavado en el fondo de la playa, y a la izquierda hay un muchacho, que 
tiene debajo del brazo el sombrero de S. Pedro Nolasco y en la mano un pequeno bolso como 
para libros. 

Viendo la disposicion de las figuras, se conoce desde luego que en este cuadro todos son retratos, 
y esta es la opinion de muchos que lo han ecsaminado, y en particular mi buen amigo, el distinguido 
artista D. Eduardo Cano . . . y por ultimo el barquero que es en persona Miguel de Cervantes 

Las senas que de su talle y rostro nos dejo el ilustre autor del Ingcnioso hidalgo, convienen todas 
con las del barquero. 

Basta con notar la posicion violenta de la cabeza de esta figura, para conocer que quiso darse 
al publico la cara. Aquel es indudablemente retrato : y como en el se ve el cuerpo entre dos estremos, 
ni grande ni peqneno ; se observa la color viva, antes blanca que morena ; se notan los ojos vivos y la 
nariz corva, antique bien proporcionada ; viene en seguida a la memoria que en aquel cuadro hay 
retratos, porque lo dice el manuscrito citado y lo confirma el Libra de Pacheco, estando entre ellos 
el de Cervantes, y se fija la atencion con singular placer en esa concordancia de facciones y senas. 

Una diferencia se nota, y sin embargo sirve para aumentar la conviccion. Tiene el barquero los 
bigotes grandcs y la boca pcqucna, pero aquellos y las barbas son de un rubio subido. Cervantes decia 
en el Prblogo de las Novclas escrito en 1611 6 1612 que las barbas entonces de plain, es decir, canas, 
no hacia veinte anos que habian sido de oro, es decir, rubias 6 rojas, y como el retrato debio ser 
hecho por Pacheco entre los anos 1590 y 1597, esta diferencia, lejos de producir dudas, es otra prueba 
mayor de que el barquero era Cervantes. 

Anadase la circunstancia de que los otros cautivos que en el cuadro figuran, estan desnudos 6 
pobremente vestidos, y el barquero tiene coleto de ante y sombrero bianco de fieltro, y se comprende 
que el pintor quiso significar asi la profesion militar del ilustre cautivo a quien retrataba. 

El cuadro de Francisco Pacheco ha sido ecsaminado y estudiado por los Sres. D. JOAQUIN 

En pos de la opinion de los artistas, viene como nacida la de los hombres de letras. 

La gallardia y gentileza de la figura del barquero, la elegancia de su porte, la viveza de los ojos y 
cierta simpatia que toda la cabeza inspira, han seducido por completo a los Sres. D. JOSE MARfA DE 
y D. NICOLAS DIAZ DE BENJUMEA. Todos confiesan que esa fisonomia viva, intelijente, y hasta en 
cierto grado picaresca, corresponde mejor & la idea que cada cual se forma de el autor en su 
imajinacion al leer las obras de Cervantes. 

Todo concurre a demostrar que el citado cuadro numero 19 del catalogo del Museo Provincial 
de Sevilla, es el de los Padres de la redencion, . . . y por ultimo . . . de que al cabo hemos tenido 
la fortuna de encontrar el retrato verdadero, de conocer la animada faz del Principe de los Ingenios 


Antes de dar al publico esta importantisima noticia, he vuelto a examinar el cuadro y el retrato, 
no una sino infinitas veces en compaiiia de artistas de conocida reputacion e indisputable merito, para 
escuchar su dictamen y dar todavia mayor realce y autoridad & las razones espuestas. 

Todos convienen en que no hay en el barquero una sola faccion, que no corresponda esactamente 
A. la descripcion que Cervantes hizo de su propia persona : lo cual es prucha harto convincente. 

A muchos de ellos solamente les he dicho que en aquel cuadro se creia ver un celebre retrato, sin 
espresarles nada mas, y todos han dicho senalando a la figura del barquero ! Cervantes ! 

In Le Bibliophile franfais, 1868, vol. 2, p. 319, will be found an account of 
Asensio's discovery as told by ANTOINE DE LATOUR. 


A wood-engraving, enclosed by a line, size, from line to line, 5^- by 4f inches = 
140 by 120 mm., subscribed, " Verdadero Retrato de Cervantes, tornado de un Cuadro 
de FRANCISCO PACHECO " ; on the portrait itself we find the signatures of ZARZA and 
PARIS. Published in El Museo Universal, No 16, April 18, 1868. Concerning 
this portrait I cite the following words of NICOLAS DIAZ DE BENJUMEA which 
accompany it : 

Y para no citar tantos otros como pudieran tener aqui cabida, j no es providencial tambien, que 
se haya conservado en el Museo de Sevilla, en medio de las vicisitudes que sabemos que han sufrido 
antiguas obras de arte, el cuadro de FRANCISCO PACHECO, donde se halla el retrato cuya copia exacta 
reproducimos en este numero ? Hasta ahora, los infinites retratos de Cervantes que corrian el mundo, 
no eran sino composiciones mas 6 menos fieles a la descripcion que el autor dio de su fisonomia ; pero 
en adelante podemos decir que poseemoci la vera efigie del autor del Quijote, segun los apuntamientos, 
que, al sacarlo del olvido, ha hecho el senor don Jose Maria ASENSIO Y TOLEDO, y por los cuales parece 
estar fuera de toda duda, que Pacheco retrato d Cervantes en un cuadro de los Padres de la Merced. 
Examinado el cuadro referido, se hallo, en efecto que el rostro de una figura, al parecer barquero, y en 
actitud de impulsar una barca con remo 6 bichero, tiene ciertos rasgos de distincion y de nobleza, 
superipres a la condicion y oficio que demuestra y que para el termino que en la perspectiva ocupa, 
su rostro esta mas detalladamente acabado que lo que debiera, si fuese figura de capricho : lo cual 
manifiesta, que el pintor quiso hacer alii un retrato. Agreganse a estos datos las circunstancias de 
que habiendo sido rescatado Cervantes por Padres de la Merced, y siendo amigo de Pacheco, quisiese, 
como agradecido, representar aquel humilde puesto entre sus bienhechores. Por otra parte, si bien se 
examina, este retrato ofrece la viveza y penetracion de mirada, la energia de caracter, y hasta la 
espresion picaresca e inteligente que es de creer tuviese el autor del Quijote. j No es tambien 
providencial este hallazgo ? 


A wood-engraving, in the text, size 6f by sf inches = 170 by 136 mm., subscribed 
" Portrait suppose de Cervantes en bateau, par PACHECO. Dessin de BRUN, d'apres 
une photographic de LAURENT," with the following signatures : A. BRUN del., P. 
PACHECO pinx., J. GUILLAUME sc. Given in the Magasin Pittoresque, vol. for 1879, 
p. 61. The engraving represents two men in a boat, the one seated, the other 
standing and propelling the boat with a pole, or oar. The man seated and attired 
in clerical garments is supposed, in the notice which accompanies the engraving, to 
be intended for Cervantes. This would appear to be erroneous (see art. 292). 



An etching, vignetted, size about 3 by 2 inches = 76 by 50 mm., with autographed 
name in full underneath, and a small monogram, left. Cervantes is represented as a 
boatman in a slouched felt hat. Copied from the photograph noticed in art. 292. 
Published \njourney to Parnassus etc. London Kegan Pau!, Trench and Co. i Paternoster 
Square 1883, where nine pages "Of the Portrait and its Pedigree" will be found. 
From this description we gather that this portrait is supposed to be that of Cervantes, 
sketched by FRANCISCO PACHECO, and that : 

D. EDUARDO CANO, a distinguished artist, afterwards took a careful drawing of the head, which 
had been photographed, and circulated throughout the land, with much acclaim. Our etching is a 
faithful transcript of the drawing ; except, perhaps, that the curve of the nose (the narit corva aunque 
bien proporcionada of Cervantes,) is hardly so sharply defined as in the original.

A list of editions of Don Quixote, illustrated, or with a portrait of Cervantes, not 
noticed in the preceding articles, extracted from a table given in La Ilustracion 
Artistica, Ano XIV, Num. 680, Barcelona. Enero. 1895. Where a facsimile is also

opportunity of verifying it. At least it will serve as a rough indication of editions

Senor E. 1 ATALAYA, a fervent admirer of his illustrious countryman, has produced 
many admirable designs for Don Quixote which have been publicly exhibited on more 
than one occasion. In 1889 Senor Atalaya was good enough to submit to the author 
some of his beautiful drawings together with the following description : 

L'hauteur de chaque planche est de 46 cent, et la largeur 31 cent. L'ouvrage complet aura 
environ 200 planches composees de la maniere suivante : 20 grandes compositions hors du texte, et le 
reste des planches avec le texte au milieu et entoure des petites compositions. L'ouvrage sera fait 
moitie blanc et noir et 1'autre moitie en couleur. Le numero des planches completement finies est de 
20 qui comprenent du premier au neuvieme chapitre compris. II y a des planches en couleur 4 1'huile. 

The compositions of Senor Atalaya which I have had the privilege of examining 
were eminently characteristic, perfectly drawn and grouped, and admirably executed. 
As far as I know they have not been published. 


A painting entitled Les Noces de Gamaches, by HENRI BARON, exhibited in the 
Paris Exposition of 1849. Noticed by SCHWARTZ-ERD in La Semaine, No 27, for 
July 8, 1849, P- 858. 


A statuette, in parian marble, height 14 inches = 356 mm., representing Dorothea, 
seated on a rock, bathing her feet, her bundle and shoes are on the ground beside her ; 
sculptured by JOHN BELL, whose name is moulded on left side of the figure. This 
figure has been engraved (art. 215) and photographed as well. 


A water-colour drawing by GEORGE CATTERMOLE, size nf by 13^ inches = 300 
by 345 mm. The Don bareheaded, in buff jerkin, sits, with outstretched legs, beside 
a massive table covered by a green cloth, on which he rests his right arm. On his 
lap he holds a large open volume which he is perusing with a pensive expression. 
His sword rests between the chair and table. An open window at the back of the 
apartment affords a distant mountainous view. To the right, are books and armour ; 
to the left, a picture of St. George and the dragon, a helmet on the table, other books 
on the floor, etc. Both composition and execution are successful. This pleasant 
drawing is in the author's collection. 


An allegorical title-page, surrounded by a line, size 7^ by 5^ inches = 190 by 
134 mm., executed, in black and white, for the author, by Mr. J. CLAYTON CLARK, 
whose monogram appears in the bottom left hand corner, within the design. In it 

1 In French catalogues the initial is generally " H.," representing the translation of Enrique into 
Henri, the same artist is indicated.

Cervantes is depicted pointing to the figure of a mounted and fully equipped knight. 
Seven or eight volumes of knight-errantry fill in the foreground ; and the title of Don 
Quixote, in Spanish, heads the composition.

Les litres des vingt-huit pieces ont ete releves sur les legendes des tapisseries et sur les inventaires 

des modeles. 

Dans les ateliers aussi bien que sur les inventaires anciens et modernes, on a donne quelquefois 
des noms differents a un meme sujet ; il semble aussi qu'il y ait eu aux Gobelins des modeles qui 
n'ont pas ete executes ; de la des erreurs dans le nombre des tapisseries et des confusions dans 
les sujets. 

La tapisserie no 2 a ete nommee : La Fausse Dulcinee ; le no 3, 'le Chevillard ; le no 8, Sancho 
monte sur son bat ; le no 9, le Jugement de la Canue ; le no 14, Don Quichotte au chateau de la 
Prudence; le no 19, la Princesse d la chasse ; le no 22, Don Quichotte combat les moulins d vent. 

D'autre part, il y a des litres de modeles que nous n'avons pu appliquer a aucune des tapisseries 

II y a aussi des changements dans le texte des legendes d'un meme sujet ; la tapisserie no 5, 
par exemple, porte en legende: Lc repas dc Sancho dans I'ih dc Barataria, ou Sancho d table dans 
rile dc Barataria se met en colere centre son medecin ; mais ces modifications ne peuvent donner 
lieu a equivoques. 

En resume, nous avons constate d'une facon irrefutable la fabrication de vingt-huit sujets 

Avec un travail aussi suivi, les modeles s'usaient vite; ils ont ete modifies, retouches et repeints 
plusieurs fois, notamment par Tessier, Lenfant, et Valade. 


In an article on "L'Histoire de la Tapisserie," in the Gazette des Beaux-Arts, 
No. for Nov. 1876, p. 424, ALFRED DARCEL mentions " La celebre tenture de Don 
Quichotte d'apres CH. COYPEL. Les aventures de 1'ingenieux hidalgo, figurees dans 
un champ de proportions restreintes, etaient posees au milieu d'' alentours,' comme 
on se disait alors, d'une grande importance." 


In The New Cvriosum Vrbis : A Guide to Ancient and Modern Rome. By 
SHAKSPERE WOOD, London: Thos. Cook & Son, etc., 1875, p. 238, we read that 
in the Quirinal Palace at Rome the Princess's Bedroom is " most charmingly hung 
with tapestries of great beauty, illustrating the story of Don Quixote, formerly in the 
Palazzo Reale at Caserta ". Can they be from Coypel's designs ? 



A painting by CHARLES DAUBIGNY, entitled Don Quichotte tt Its lions, No. 17 in 
the Collection Geo/roy-Dechaume, was sold in Paris, April 14, 1893, and is thus 
described at p. 17 of the Catalogue: " Paysage Tiistorique ex6cut6 par Daubigny 
pour le concours d'entree en loge. Toile. Sign6 a droite. Haul., i metre ; larg. 
81 cent." 


A painting entitled Don Quichotte et Sancho se rendant aux nocts de Gamache, by 
DAUMIER, exhibited in the Paris Salon de Peinture de 1850. Noticed by A. L^ON 
NOEL in La Semaine, No. 18, for May 2, 1851. 


SIEURIN writes : " J'ai trois dessins in-i8, de D^VERIA, dont deux a la sepia et le 
troisieme a la mine de plomb, retouche d'encre de Chine, a la date de 1821. Je ne 
sais si ces dessins se rapportent a quelque edition." 


Four drawings, a la gouache, size 7f by n-J- inches = 188 by 281 mm., unsigned ; 
in the manner of DEVERIA, but not so well drawn as are the designs of that artist ; 
prepared evidently for reproduction, but, as far as I know, unpublished. The scenes 
depicted are: (i) Defeat of the Biscainer; (2) Wedding of Camacho ; (3) The Knight 
despatching Sancho to govern Barataria ; (4) Don Quixote's defeat at Barcelona. 


In his Dessinateurs au dix-huiteme Stick, Baron R. PORTALIS notes " 19 dessins 
au crayon et au bistre. Vente Denon (1826.), by JEAN HONORE" FRAGONARD." Seven 
of these, measuring about 16 by n inches = 405 by 280 mm., I have seen in the 
collection of M. Groult of Paris. Some of these have been reproduced (see 
arts. 98, 312). 


A painting by W. P. FRITH, R.A., at South Kensington ; thus described in the 
Catalogue of the Jones Bequest : 

Sancho Panza and the Duchess, No 22, on panel, signed by W. P. FRITH, and dated 1850, 
g by 13 inches = 230 by 330 mm. 


An oil painting by E. GAMBA, size 28 by 22^ inches = 710 by 570 mm., entitled, 
Don Quixote at the Inn. The scene is the interior of the inn yard. Quixote has just 


dismounted, and, hat in hand, is making a low bow to the inn-keeper's daughter, who 
is descending the stairs, preceded by a barking dog. Sancho is in the act of getting 
off Dapple. There are four figures on the landing to which the stairs lead. In all 
seven figures, a horse, an ass, a dog and two ducks. Signed GAMBA, 1876. This 
clever picture, of which the composition is excellent, and the lights and shades most 
skilfully managed, is owned by the author. 


An oil painting by Sir JOHN GILBERT, size 27 by 35^ inches = 685 by 900 mm., 
representing Quixote seated at a table on which are two books. With outstretched 
hands he discourses to the curate and the barber, the former is seated, while the latter, 
standing up, supports his head on a large volume which he holds edgeways on the 
table. Behind the Don stands the governess with folded hands ; and the niece sits 
in the foreground, right, occupied with a piece of embroidery. On the floor are a 
basket of wool and another large tome leaning against the leg of the table This fine 
composition, in the master's best style, is owned by the author. 


An oil painting, described as "Don Quixote, in red cloak," by Sir JOHN GILBERT, 
presented by him to the Walker Art Gallery, at Liverpool, in April, 1893. 

A painting entitled Don Qiiichotte sur la roche pauvre, by GUIGNET ; exhibited in 
the Paris Exposition of 1848. Described and extolled by PAUL DE SAINT-VICTOR in 
La Semaine, No. 25, for April 23, 1848, p. 794, from which I transcribe the following 
passage : 

Le chapitre de Cervantes, choisi par M. Guignet, pretait, certes beaucoup a la charge bouffonne, 
et un peintre vulgaire 1'aurait traduit en style Biard. En 1'interpretant dans un sens excentrique et 
sombre, M. Guignet lui a donne une valeur artistique bien outrement puissante. Sur la pointe d'un 
rocher cerne et mure hermetiquement par un cercle de rochers, dont des vegetations feroces et 
hargneuses ebouriffent ca et la les profils difformes, comme des cheveux h&risses sur un front en 
colere, un spectre decharne et demi-nu execute des cabrioles et des pirouettes de danse macabre, c'est 
le stylite de la chevalerie errante, c'est don Quichotte. La figure effaree de Sancho se decoupe en 
vigueur entre deux blocs de granit sur une tranche etroite du ciel d'orage, sinistre soupirail de cette 
oubliette gigantesque. Une lumiere fauve escalade a pic les parois des rochers et accroche a leurs 
asperites des reflets d'incendie qui colorent la scene des teintes du cauchemar. La magie baroque de 
1'effet est ici relevee par une excellente facture, qui allie la curiosite du detail a la large entente 
de 1'ensemble. 


An oil painting by A. B. HOUGHTON, size 9^- by n inches = 242 by 290 mm., 
representing the Don and Sancho under a tree, with Rosinante reposing in the 


background. This subject will be found engraved in the edition of London, F. Warne 
& Co., 1866 (art. 254), with the following quotation underneath : " Both of them 
laid themselves down to sleep, leaving Rozinante and Dapple, etc. at their own 
discretion ". The picture is in the author's possession. 


FRANCIS HAYMAN "was one of the original forty academicians, and contributed 
two scenes from Don Quixote to their first exhibition in 1769 "- 1 


A water-colour drawing, size \z\ by rof inches = 318 by 264 mm., signed TONY 
JOHANNOT, and dated 1837. The subject is the same as that of the "Tableau refuse 
au Salon de 1835," but it differs from that picture, as represented by the engraving 
(art. 181), in one respect, viz. the Don is furnished with moustaches which are 
wanting in the engraving and presumably in the original picture. This drawing is in 
the author's possession. 


A water-colour drawing, size 14^ by 16 inches = 370 by 407 mm., executed in 
1878 by Mr. BARNARD H. LEE ; exhibited at the Spanish Exhibition in London in 
1889. Subject : The capture of Mambrino's Helmet. The Don, mounted, holding 
the barber's basin on his head, occupies the centre foreground ; to his left stands 
Sancho with his ass ; to the right is a white foal donkey. 


TOM TAYLOR notes that C. R. LESLIE painted a head of Sancho in 1827. I 
have not seen this painting, which may be the original of the lithograph noticed in 
art. 149, although I believe not. 


A painting by C. R. LESLIE, at South Kensington, entitled Dulcinea del Toboso, 
and thus described in the Catalogue: 

131. The peasant mistress of Don Quixote, clad in a red bodice, is engaged in tying up her 
long black hair. The naive expression and sweet smile of the damsel are no disparagement to the 
taste of the Don in his choice of a mistress. Exhibited at the Royal Academy, 1839. Panel, 12 x 10, 
upright. Sheepshanks gift. 

In the Autobiographical Recollections by Leslie, TOM TAYLOR remarks : 

The Dulcinea might as well be called by any other name. It is neither the Dulcinea indicated 

in Cervantes, nor a Spanish peasant-girl at all. Probably the painter never gave it the name of 


1 Diet, of National Biography. 


43 8 - 

A painting by C. R. LESLIE, thus described by TOM TAYLOR in Autobiographical 
Recollections by Leslie : 

The picture painted for Mr. Bates in 1849 represents the Duke's chaplain leaving the table in 
disgust at his lord's encouragement of Don Quixote's delusions. The canvas is of the largest 
dimensions ever ventured on by Leslie. In a rich hall of noble decorated architecture is spread a 
stately table, covered with silver plate, fruit, and wine in chased flagons. Don Quixote, in the centre, 
in his straight hose and chamois doublet, draped in "the fair mantle of finest scarlet," which the 
two beautiful damsels had cast upon his shoulders on entering the castle, drawn up to his full height, 
and "trembling from head to foot like a man filled with quicksilver," is delivering that impassioned 
and grave rebuke to the Canon. " Is it " etc. By the hidalgo's side stands Sancho, just risen to 
vindicate himself and his master. The Duke, in black velvet doublet and purple hose, is enjoying 
the wrath of the indignant churchman, hiding his laughter behind his hand. The face of the gentle 
Duchess, who looks up at the angry confessor from among her attendant damsels, is irradiated with 
one of those latent half-smiles, by the charm of which Leslie has enabled us almost to excuse in her 
the thoughtlessness that can find matter for mirth and practical joking in the wreck of Don Quixote's 
noble nature. The puzzled but well-disciplined attendants stand round, doing their best to suppress 
all expression in their looks. In the foreground the indignant ecclesiastic is sweeping out of the 
room with protesting hands outstretched, and an angry flutter of his ample black robes, his fat 
vulgarly-imperious face swollen and inflamed with rage. . . . 

I am inclined to think this the finest picture, both in point of expression and technical qualities, 
painted in the latter half of Leslie's career. 

Mr. E. M. Ward, the Royal Academician, stood for the figure of the attendant, near the entrance 
in the background, and his brother for the Duke. He had Spanish models for some of the other heads. 

A paraphrase of this criticism, signed F. FEUILLET DE CONCHES, will be found 
in L' Artiste for April 1884, p. 250. Taylor's name is of course not given. 


Sancho and Dr. Pedro Rezia, picture by CHARLES ROBERT LESLIE, R.A. ; 
exhibited by the painter in the Academy in 1855. "Sancho Panza is one of the 
first names with which the pictures of this artist are identified." See The Art Journal, 
April i, 1856, pp. 105-107. 


A tinted sketch by C. R. LESLIE, size 12 by 16 inches = 304 by 405 mm., 
entitled Don Quixote and the Showman's Lion, in the Catalogue of the National 
Gallery at South Kensington, p. 96, No. 58, in circulation. In this vigorous sketch, 
the Knight stands (middle) ready to receive the lion seen at the open door of a 
boarded cage or caravan (right). The showman stands behind the door which he has 
just opened, while mounted men are escaping (left). 

A drawing by HENRY LIVERSEEGE, representing Don Quixote " in profile pulling 


on his gauntlet ; a remarkably spirited and characteristic Work, which was purchased 
by Mr. Bernal ". See the Memoir in Engravings from the Works of Henry Liverseege.

Two paintings by Don PEDRO RODRIGUEZ DE MIRANDA, in the Real Museo at 
Madrid, thus described in the official Catalogue, p. 125 : 

547. Don Quijote en In venta. 

No queriendo romper las cintas de su celada, Cue preciso, para darle de beber, que el ventero 
horadara una cana y le fuera por ella echando el vino. 

Alto, i pie, ii pulg., 6 lin. ; ancho 2 pies, 9 pulg., 6 lin. 

548. Don Qnijote armado caballero. 

Alto, i pie, ii pulg. ; ancho, 2 pies, g pulg., 4 lin. 

This latter picture is mentioned by LAROUSSE. 


A pair of bronze figures, erect, representing Don Quixote and Sancho Panza : 
The former about 13! inches = 350 mm. high, without the pedestal. The Knight, in 
full armour, stands in a defiant attitude, with spear in right hand, while his left hand 
rests on his hip, it has been engraved, see art. 194. The latter, not quite so high, 
represents the squire in slouched hat, carrying, on his right arm, a cock and a 
drinking gourd, while in his left hand he holds his wallet. Both figures were 
modelled by ANTONIN MOINE, about 1840, and produced by Susse freres 31 Place de 
la Bourse, Paris. 


In the Magasin Pittoresque, 2O me Annee, 1852, p. 68, we read: "Au chateau de 
Cheverni, JEAN MOSNIER, artiste blaisois, avait peint . . . 1'Histoire . . . de don 
Quichotte ". 


An oil painting by C^LESTIN NANTEUIL entitled La lecture de Don Quichotte, in 
the Musee de Dijon, No 411 in the Catalogue, where, at pp. 126, 265, it is thus 
described :

In his vol. entitled, James Holmes and John Varley, London, Bentlty & Son, 1894, 
Mr. ALFRED T. STORY writes that HENRY RICHTER exhibited, at Spring Gardens, 



about 1816, a " work," presumably a water-colour drawing, entitled Don Quixote and 
Mambrind s Helmet. 


A painting in oil by AD. SCHRODTER, entitled Don Quixote, No. 334 in the 
National-Galerie at Berlin, thus described at p. 124 of the Catalogue. 

Der Ritter von der traurigen Gestalt in ledernem Lehnsessel sitzend, den Kopf in die Hand, 
die Fiisse auf umherliegende Folianten gestemmt, vertieft in den Roman "Amadis von Gallien"; 
neben ihm die Lanze und ein Tisch mit allerhand Gegenstanden, dabei ein Rabe ; die Wande des 
Zimmers mit Biichern und wiistem Kram verstellt. Bez. : 18 O 34- Leinwand, h. 0.54, br. 0.48. 
Radierung vom Kiinstler selbst in Buddeus' "Album deutscher * Kiinstler ". Lithographie von Gille, 
roy. fol. (art. 179*) Wagener'sche Sammlung No. 224. 

An agreeable and spirited picture. The original of the first engraving in the set 
noticed in art. 249 and entitled Don Quixote liesst den Amadis von Gallien. 


An oval painting by ROBERT SMIRKE, in the Diploma Gallery at Burlington 
House, London : The Knight (right) and his Squire (middle) sit on the ground 
under a huge rock which occupies half the design. Rosinante and Dapple stand 
behind their respective masters. On the left are trees and a blue hill in the far 
distance. Neither composition nor colouring is especially happy. I am not aware 
that this picture has been engraved. 

A painting, entitled : Sancho Panza with the Duchess, by THOMAS STOTHARD, 
exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1820. 


A painting entitled : Sancho Panza relates to Don Quixote the reception and 
conversation he had with Dulrinea, by THOMAS STOTHARD, exhibited at the Royal 
Academy in 1821. 

Two Subjects from Don Quixote, by THOMAS STOTHARD, both belonging to Miss 
Rogers, were exhibited at the British Institution, in 1841, as well as Sancho and the 
Duchess the property of Sir John Swinburne, Bt. 


A painting by THOMAS STOTHARD, at South Kensington, thus described in the 
Catalogue : 

203. Sancho and the Duchess. Seated in the front, attended by her ladies and the duenna, the 
Duchess listens to Sancho, who is on a low chair beside her. Canvas, gj x 7$, upright. Sheepshanks 


This picture seems to be the original of one of the engravings, by W. BROMLEY, 
in the edition, London, John Sharpe, 1809 (art. 112). 


A painting entitled : Sancho and the Duchess, by THOMAS STOTHARD, sold at 
Christie's, in June, 1834, to Agnew, for 16 i6s. od. 


A painting entitled : Don Quixote and Sancho by THOMAS STOTHARD, sold at 
Christie's in June, 1834, to Molteno, for 13 23. 6d. 



An oil painting by THOMAS STOTHARD, size n-J- by loj inches = 290 by 270 mm., 
representing the scene of the Captive and Zorayda surprised by her Father, part I, 
chapt. XLI. There are three figures : the captive dressed in Spanish costume, hat 
with feather, doublet, hose and white stockings ; Zorayda in a plain white robe ; and 
the turbaned father emerging from behind the trees in the background. The subject 
is identical with that by BANKS, engraved in the edition of London, W. Miller, 1801 
(art. 102), but Stothard's composition is much more satisfactory than that of Banks. 
The author is the fortunate owner of this charming picture executed in the master's 
best manner. 


" Sixteen original drawings by THOMAS STOTHARD are inserted in an illustrated 
copy of Don Quixote, translated by P. A. MOTTEUX, Edinburgh, 1879, belonging to 
Mrs. Norton Q. Pope of Brooklyn." Noted in A Monograph on Privately Illustrated 
Books by DANIEL M. TREDWELL, Flatbush, privately printed, 1892, p. 328. 


A bust, " du au travail d'un modeste ouvrier sculpteur, C^SAR TEMPESTA, qui a 
reproduit d'une fa$on heureuse le modele en platre qui lui a etc Iivr6 et qui nous avait 
et6 remis d'Espagne". 1 Erected, in 1894, in the grotto, near Alger, where Cervantes 
is supposed to have taken refuge during his captivity. 


A painting by THOMAS UWINS, entitled : Dorothea disguised as a Shepherd-boy, 
exhibited in the Royal Academy, in 1842. In a letter to Mr. Townshend, dated 
March 22, 1842, UWINS writes: 

1 Discours Prononce par M. ALCALA GALIANO, Consul general d'Espagne a Alger Le 24 jfuin 
1894 Alger Ernest Mallebay 1894. 


I have put Sterne's Maria and her goat into the sketch of the cavern, and the sentiment of 
loneliness and solitude is perfect. Then as a companion to this little picture, I have done another 
from the sketch I made on the little wooden bridge at Wynn Stay, where you and your sisters, and 
Mr. Fletcher were kind enough to wait on the seat till the work was completed. Into this I have 
put ' Dorothea surprised by the Curate and Barber,' who, in their search after Don Quixote in the 
Sierra Morefia, corae suddenly on the disguised damosel, while she is washing her feet. A mountain 
stream in one country is very much like a mountain stream in another, and I do not doubt my picture 
is quite as Spanish as if I had been on the spot. 


A painting by THOMAS UWINS entitled : Dorothea surprised by Cardenio, the 
Curate, and the Barber, exhibited in the Royal Academy, in 1848. 

I know not whether this picture is a replica of that exhibited in 1842, noticed in 
the preceding art. The extract from Uwins' letter there quoted seems to describe 
this rather than the former picture. 


A water-colour drawing, by J. M. WRIGHT, entitled : Don Quixote setting out. In 
the Nottingham Castle Museum, No 89 in the Catalogue, where it is said to be from 
the Percy Collection. 


A water-colour drawing, size u^- by i3f inches = 290 by 350 mm., entitled: 
Return of Don Quixote, by JOHN MASSEY WRIGHT. In the collection of the British 
Museum, No 424. The Don, mounted, occupies the centre of the drawing ; to the 
right eight figures, male and female, await him in front of a house, beside which is a 
tree ; to the left an open landscape. The composition is pleasing, but the figures are 
entirely English. The drawing has neither signature nor date.

To the above detailed title-page, which sets forth the object and scope of the 
publication, may yet be added the following indications given in the Prblogo :

Useful indexes are added : (i) De las ciento y una Laminas por su orden de 
colocacion en el texto ; (2) De las sesenta Ediciones por fechas de su publicacion ; 
(3) List of Designers, Engravers, Lithographers ; (4) Countries of publication. The 
work was issued in 10 parts, on the wrapper of each of which is a reproduction (the 
same) of the engraving which adorns the title-page of the edition of Paris, 1622 
(art. 5). 

To this valuable publication I own indebtedness. Its scope however is limited, nor 
is it of course altogether free from errors. The editions used are not always the first 
in which the engravings reproduced appeared ; nor, it would seem, were the books 
at the editor's disposal in every instance perfect. While offering his collection of 
facsimiles to the public, the enthusiastic editor expresses the hope that they may 
serve as a stimulant to his countrymen " para hacer en el porvenir una edicion 
espanola del Don Quijote en cuyos grabados se procure, si es posible, superar a todos 
los conocidos hasta el presente". Considering the present state of literature in Spain, 
the prospects of that country, and the fact that the art of engraving is on the decline, 
if not actually disappearing, that hope, expressed fifteen years ago, is, to say the 
least, decidedly Utopian. 

La Ilustracion Artistica. When the present work was well in the press and it 
was too late for any alteration to be made in its plan or arrangement, there appeared 
at Barcelona, January 1895, trle No. 680 of La Ilustracion Artistica. That interesting 
publication contains, inter alia, an article on " Las Ilustraciones del ' Quijote,' " from 
the pen of Serior J. L. PELLICER ; and a list of " Ediciones publicadas desde su 
aparicion en el ano 1605 hasta 1894". In my art. 410 I have utilised this list by 
extracting from it all the illustrated editions not previously noticed. I do not vouch 
for the correctness of this list, indeed I have found in it several errors. One specimen 
will suffice: Towards the end of the editions "en Ingles" we find the following entry, 
" 1888, Nueva York, B. Quaritch, 5 tomos, 4, 8 madera ". Mr. Quaritch has no 
house in New York, knows no bookseller there of his, or any similar, name, and has 
never published an illustrated edition of Don Quixote. The entry which follows is 
also strange, " 189 . . ., Londres, Milner, Sowerby of Halifox, i tomo, 16 8 madera". 
On the principle of the Iconograjia the Ilustracion gives numerous facsimiles of rare 
title-pages, of illustrations, and of portraits of Cervantes, many ot these belong to 
editions which I have already described. The collection upon which the articles in 
the Ilustracion are based is owned by D. Isidro Bonsoms of Barcelona. 



HENRY COHEN Guide de V Amateur de Livres a Gravures du XVIII' Siecle 
Cinqu&me Edition revue, corrigee a considerablement augmentee par Le Baron ROGER 
PORTALIS Paris Chez P. Rouquette 1886. 8, pp. xxii and 756, double cols., tire a

E. CROTTET Supplement a la 5"* Edition du Guide de V Amateur de Livres a 
Figures du XVIII' Siecle Amsterdam, Fr. van Crombrugghe 1890. 8, pp. x and 320. 

In spite of the esteemed name added to the fifth edition of Cohen's Guide (I will 
not say a word about the four preceding issues) the volume is full of errors of all 
kinds ; some of these will be found indicated in the few articles in which I have had 
occasion to consult the work. M. E. CROTTET says : " Dans la cinquieme edition 
nous avons releve encore environ trois cents articles inexacts ou incomplets," and he 
very truly adds : " II y en a sans doute encore beaucoup qui nous ont echappe etc ". 

That a book so superficial, so full of faults, could go through five expensive 
editions, and be moreover honoured by a supplement from another pen, must 
occasion astonishment. Such an event could only happen in France. A similar 
work would, in this country, occasion a loss on the first and sole edition.

" Tunisia is exactly what it should be. ... The two friends distinctly perceived the requirements of the 
age. . . . The exhaustive biography is truly valuable, and gives weight to the volume." Sir RICHARD F. 
BURTON, Academy, June 16, 1808. 

" A pleasant book of (ravels, composed, in agreeable proportions, of general description of country, people, 
and manners, on the one hand, and of architectural observations and research on the other. . . . The account of 
Kerouan, the sacred city, until lately quite inaccessible to all but true Moslems, Is very interesting. So U the 
account of the remains 6f the Roman city of Sufetula." American Architect, June 30, itttttJ. 

" Modestly written and beautifully illustrated. ... It is, indeed, one ol the best of modern books. . . . 
What they tell may be trusted as accurate, while the excellent phototypes, woodcuts, and the heliographic 
reproductions of their architectural drawings, render their volunu of lasting value. There is ... a biblio 
graphy of works and papers on Tunis . . . practically complete. ... As an archzological treatise their well- 
written, well-illustrated, well-indexed, and altogether most satisfactory volume will continue to be valued." 
AthtmEum, January 28, iSHS. 

" A book which contains much information, and a good many admirable illustrations, especially of the 
Roman remains of the country. . . . The authors have added to their book a -very useful bibliography. . . . We 
may congratulate thsm on the production of what is a very pleasant and readable book in itself, though Its chief 
value and interest consist in th^ description of the great Roman remains that were visited, and in the admirably 
executed and produced illustrations ol these and of some of the Moorish buildings. In a practical sense, alto, 
the book will be of use to any who may wish to explore the same line of country, in giving information as to the 
means (or no means) of getting about, and the various and apparently not slight difficulties they will have to 
contend with." Mtiitde >\ Dec. 10, 1887. 

" The glossary of Arabic terms added to this boo!: will be of use to scholars, and the bibliography U an 
excellent compilation. . . . The authors have given an excellent representation of what remains of the noble 
Roman amphitheatre at El Djem." Catholic Press, May 9, 1888. 

" Mr. Alexander Graham and Mr. H. S. Ashbee, in their Travels in Tunisia, describe a ruined country In 
lively, fascinating style. The work is replete with valuable information, not only on architectural and archaeo- 
logical subjects, but on the e\ cry-day matters of life and ordinary commerce. They give also an excellent biblio- 
graphy of the country they describe, and their book is a guide of great value to the traveller in search not only 
of general knowledge, but of a deeper acquaintance with the remains of Roman civilisation in an important 
part of Northern Africa than falls to the lot of the ordinary tourist." Mr. ALFRED WATBRHOUSE, President's 
Address, Journal of Proceedings of the Royal Institute of British Architects, Nov. 8, 1888, p. 14. 

" Un forte beau volume i''diti ; avec luxe. . . , L'ouvrage est complete par un glossaire des mots et locutions 
arabes employes dans la relation, et par un tr^a beau travail bibliographique. . .' . Des figures photographiques 
ou des heliogravures, dans lesquelles un emplot discrct de la cculeur donne aux perspectives un fuyant et aux 
premiers plans un relief singulicrement approprius aux objets rcpniscntfs ; des restaurations et des mensurations 
d'anciens edifices ajoutent ;i la valcur des descriptions du texte toujours impuissantes, quelque fidtlea et colorir>s 
qu'elles soient a donner 1'idee exacte de la configuration et de 1'aspect des choses quand elles ne sont pas inter- 
prete'es et eclairees par le dessein. Knfin dc nombreux bois, executes avec une nettctc et une entente archttec- 
turale dont on ne saurait trop faire 1'tMoge, achevent de fair de ce livre, qui est une mine de rensei^nemcnts 
precieux, un veritable ornement de bibliotheque. II ne connais pas de publication franchise qui ollre sur la 
Tunisie une lecture a la fois aussi attrayame et aussi instructive, et i! est bien dommage quc par mi les nombreu- 
ses personnes en France pour lesquelles ce pays a un interet de jour en jour plus grand si peu puissant en pro- 
filer." Lt Livre, February, 1888. 

" The authors decided at the outset that they would not write 'what is popularly known as an entertaining 
volume of travel '. . . . And it must be admitted that they have formed a much more acceptable idea of the 
functions of such a book than the majority of * travellers ' so-called, who are for the most part tourists pure and 
simple. ... A glossary and map add to the merits of this plain and unvarnished account of some of the chief 
objects of interest in a country little known as yet to the Western World. Of the illustrations, whether the 
tinted heliogravures or the phototypes, it would be difficult to speak too highly, and they are among the best 
specimens of the reproduction by ' process ' of original drawings and of photographs respectively that liave been 

ublished. It can be said of few book pictures that they are works of art, but these, especially the prints of Mr. 
iraham's beautiful sketches, fully deserve such a description." Morning Post, January 25, 1888. 

" It embodies the outcome of personal explorations, is, as the authors claim, free from padding of every kind, 

jpeals by its pictures, no less vivid and striking, f 

. unisia will be a haunt of the British tourist. ... It will be strange, however, if this work, equally bright and 
scholarly, does not send some adventurous spirits upon journeys of exploration. A feature of special value in the 
book is a bibliography of Tunisia, . . . admirably arranged." Notts and Queries, 7 S. V. 78. 

" For a first trip to the Regency there could be no better preparation than a perusal of this interesting work, 

. while those who want more information may consult a biography extending over seventy-seven pages, and 

ic Addison's Cato." i'(. 7fli's Gazette, March 

comprehensive enough to catalogue Addison's Cato," i'f. James'i Gazette, March 24, 1888. 

" Messrs. Graham and Ashbee have produced a careful and well-written account of journeys to Tunis, hair- 
ies, Carthage, and most other interesting places in the province, without any fine or gossipy writ 
record of careful observation and experience, and with half a hundred most admirable illustrations 
Mr. Ashbee has added a very careful and elaborate biography, and the whole composes one of 

wan. Sfax, Gabe 
ing, but with a 

of all kinds , . .. 

those books of travels which remain." Saturday Review, March 31, 1888. p. 393.
