Description


A superlative work of world literature, Miguel de Cervantes's classic novel is a story about the human spirit. His characters Don Quijote and the loyal Sancho Panza, an idealist and a dreamer, have transcended the pages of the novel to become iconic figures in their own right. Illustrated 19th-century French artist Gustave Dore's intricate and imaginative engravings, which often are said to have put a face on Don Quijote, this luxurious box set of the two volumes of Don Quijote de la Mancha commemorates the 400th anniversary of the book's publication.
