The History of Don Qvichote, imprenta de Edward Blount Londres, 1620,

Book in 2 eighth-size volumes that contains the two parts of Don Quixote in English, made in the printing house of Edward Blount. It served as the model for numerous subsequent editions. With this 1620 edition Thomas Shelton’s translation of Part Two is published for the first time; the interest aroused by it caused the First Part to be reissued, by then out of print, and it was decided that the new edition would have a cover with the images of D. Quixote and Sancho copied from the French model of 1618.
