Near fine. 4to. xii, 245, (3)pp, including a 2 page publisher's catalogue. 11 full page color plates, illustrated title page, 19 half page illustrations by Walter Crane. Publisher's dull red cloth blocked on the spine in black and tan, and on both boards in black, tan, blue and white in designs by the illustrator. The frontispiece and the title page depict Don Quixote and a copy of the Spanish romance by Amadis de Gaul. Judge Parry's retelling of Cervantes is based on the Thomas Shelton translation. Traces of wear to the edges of the cloth, upper inner hinge neatly repaired, else this is a very good to near fine copy.
