This is a copy of the first edition of Part II of Don Quixote. The second part appeared in 1615, following the publication of a spurious sequel published under the pseudonym of Alonso Fernández de Avellaneda in 1614. An even greater success, Cervantes continued to explore the processes of composition in the narrative: ironic self-referential touches include key characters in Part II having read Part I, while Don Quixote himself leafs through the ‘false’ second part of his own adventures in a visit to a printing shop.
