The present book contains a modern Sanskrit translation of eight chapters from the First Part of Cervantes's monumental Don Quijote. Don Quixote will appeal to specialists with interests in a variety of fields such as Sanskrit philology, modern Sanskrit studies, manuscriptology, history of Indology, Romance languages and literature, as well as translational and cultural studies. The Sanskrit text, typeset with a newly produced historical reconstruction of a Nagari typeface designed by the German critic, translator, poet, and Sanskritist August Wilhelm von Schlegel (1767-1845), has been edited on the basis of a unique manuscript which was written in Kashmir in the winter of 1936/37 and is now kept at the Houghton Library of Harvard University, USA. This publication includes an overview of the reception of Cervantes's classic in India, as well as a detailed study of the fascinating history of the Sanskrit translation of Don Quijote and its still unedited partial rendering in Kashmiri.
