Descripción

[4], 282, [2]pp ads. 8vo. Some light browning & old marginal waterstaining, not intrusive. Expertly bound in recent quarter sprinkled calf, raised & gilt banded spine, red morocco label, marbled boards, vellum tips, fresh contemporary endpapers & pastedowns. Early ownership signature of Jos. Graydon at head of titlepage, 19th century armorial bookplate of Charles Lord Maynard on verso. ESTC T88976. Quevedo's famous satirical description of the visions of Algouazil, a possessed demon, were originally written between 1606-22 but not approved by the censors for publication in Spanish until 1627, under the title Los Suenos. The first English translation, by Richard Croshawe, appeared in 1640, with Roger L'Estrange's version following in 1667. Samuel Pepys purchased his copy of 'a merry satyr' the following year, noting that the 'translation is, as to the rendering it into English expression, the best that ever I saw, it being impossible almost to conceive that it should be a translation'.
