1905 edition of F. Seix, Barcelona. Don Quixote by Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra. Illustrated with chromolithographic sheets José Moreno Carbonero and Laureano Barrau; capitals and initials polychrome and gold of different artists. Souvenir edition of the tercentenary.
2 volumes bound in publishing beautifully decorated cloth, leather spine, upper cut golden. Volume 1 88 + 607 pages and 9 sheets. Volume 2 23 + 667 pages and 4 sheets. 4th smaller format.
Very beautiful edition with sheets that look like real oil paintings, with the downside that with the passage of time and the pressure of the closed book, the onion paper that protected the adjoining page, in some of the sheets, is “stuck” to the sheet and its detachment leads to the breaking of said onion paper. Likewise, the solution is as easy as replacing it with another piece of onion paper, or similar. In some sheets we have not wanted to remove the paper that is adhered by a piece but we believe that there will be no problems in general in taking it off. In 3 or 4 sheets you can see that they tried in previous years and the onion paper is cracked but it still protects the sheet. In others, the “oil” has transferred part of the image to the paper but not to the text page, hence its usefulness.
Interesting and beautiful edition due to the type of plates it presents and by the authors of said paintings, Moreno Carbonero and Barrau.
Both books show normal signs of the passage of time, with the binding somewhat scratched but, in general, in fairly good condition.
Note: the yellow color of some photos is a problem with the camera. All pages on plain paper, tanned by the passage of time (a little more around the edges) but without affecting the text.
