New York: Stewart, Tabori & Chang, 1991. 1st/1st. NF/NF. Translated and adapted by Magda Bogin. The large book is tight and square with solid hinges and binding. Clean marbled boards in darker shades of red and black with gilt lettering on the spine. Rubbing to corners. The textblock is clean with no writing, bookplate, or markings and not BCE, ex-library, or remaindered. Full-color frontispiece and illustrations by Manuel Boix throughout. The dust jacket is unclipped without a price as issued, with light wear to corners (see photos). Protected in a new Brodart Mylar cover. 139 heavy glossy pages. 8½ x 12" tall. This volume presents the first part of the quest by the beloved Don, the moniker and persona adopted by the addled Senor Quijada, who has read a few too many chivalric romances, hardly needs an introduction to adults. However, most young people will have hardly heard him mentioned, much less had any firsthand contact with this larger-than-life literary creation. Magda Bogin has taken some of the more involving, outrageous, and well-known adventures of the knight errant and his squire, Sancho Panza, and put them together into a relatively brief narrative that nonetheless is strikingly true to the tone and style of the Spanish original. Her prose, lively and at times employing modern vernacular to good effect, does full justice to Cervantes's mad Knight of the Sad Countenance. Boix's illustrations are delicate, detailed, gold-washed watercolors that create a kind of fairy-tale ambience. - School Library Journal
