Miguel de Cervantes: Don Quixote of La Mancha, the Alba would be. Illustrations by Gustave Doré. Editing to the care of J. Leyva. Copy of the first edition, April 2005. Commemorative laminaria 1605-2005.
Gustave Doré made 380 drawings, 120 of them in large format, to illustrate the universal work of Miguel de Cervantes, Don Quixote de La Mancha. It is rare to find an edition illustrated by Doré containing all his drawings.
This edition is a tribute to both the work of Cervantes and Gustavo Doré. This is a compilation of 74 of his best engravings, accompanied by a short text (in Spanish) in which mention is made of the illustrated motif. We do not know if it was an error or what was the reason, but the book indicates that there are 80 illustrations.
Miguel de Unamuno, in his work “The Knight of the Sad Figure” says: “It is the task of painting Don Quixote much more difficult than that of swelling a dog, and a company of the most worthy of any painter. It is not a matter of “illustrating” Cervantes’s imperishable work, but of dressing visible and concrete flesh an individual and living spirit, not mere abstract idea. “
