Iconography in medieval Spanish literature by John Esten Keller( Book )
12 editions published between 1983 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 439 libraries worldwide
The masterpieces of medieval Spanish literature have come to be known and loved by Hispanists, and more recently by others throughout the world. But the brilliant illuminations with which the original manuscripts were illustrated have remained almost totally unknown on the shelves of the great European libraries. To redress this woeful neglect, two noted scholars here present a generous selection from this great visual treasury including many examples never before reproduced. John E. Keller and Richard P. Kinkade have chosen five representative works, dating from the mid-thirteenth century to t
The scholar's guide. A translation of the twelfth-century Disciplina Clericalis of Pedro Alfonso by Petrus Alfonsi( Book )
16 editions published in 1969 in English and held by 399 libraries worldwide
È la prima raccolta di sentenze e racconti di origine orientale scritta in latino e destinata agli occidentali. Composta nel XII secolo da Pietro Alfonsi, medico ebreo convertito al cristianesimo, è stata tràdita in ben ottantacinque codici e tradotta, in età medievale, in francese, castigliano, italiano, islandese, ebraico, tedesco e inglese: per 150 anni la raccolta narrativa più diffusa in Europa. L'introduzione e il commento, a cura di Cristiano Leone, mettono in evidenza l'importanza della ricezione dell'opera nelle letterature romanze medievali e sono una compiuta sintesi degli studi di orientalisti, mediolatinisti e romanisti svolti fin qui
Pious brief narrative in medieval Castilian & Galician verse : from Berceo to Alfonso X by John Esten Keller( Book )
20 editions published between 1978 and 2015 in English and Spanish and held by 374 libraries worldwide
""Brief narratives, "" or medieval precursors to the modern short story, are compositions couched in the form of a tale of reasonable short length. They began with writings in Latin and, eventually, made their way into the vernacular languages of Europe. They include the fable, the apologue, the exemplum, the saint's life, the miracle, the biography, the adventure tale, the romance, the jest, and the anecdote, among others. In Spain, the oldest extant brief narratives in written form are in verse and date from the late twelfth and early thirteenth centuries. The earliest examples include La vi
Antonio de Villegas' El Abencerraje by Antonio de Villegas( Book )
10 editions published between 1964 and 1965 in English and Spanish and held by 340 libraries worldwide
The book entitled "The Abencerraje and the beautiful Jarifa" relates a story that occurs on the border of Andalusia between the Moors and Christians in the 15th century. Rodrigo de Narvaez, warden of Antequera, therein shows Christian generosity to a Moorish Knight, Abindarraez, of the family of the Abencerrajes, and frees him so he can go to his wedding with Jarifa ... The Abencerraje can be considered as one of the sources for the figure of the noble Moor as projected in European literature
Aesop's fables by Ann McGovern( Book )
5 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 314 libraries worldwide
In 1489 Johan Hurus printed the first collection of fables in Spain, Lavida del Ysopetconsusfabulas hystoriadas. Illustrated with nearly 200 woodcuts, this work quickly became the most-read book in Spain, beloved of both children and adults. Reprinted many times in the next three centuries and carried to the New World, it brought to Spanish letters a cornucopia of Aesopic fables, oriental apologues, and folktales that were borrowed by such writers as Cervantes, Lope de Vega, and especially the fabulists Iriarte and Samaniego. John Keller and Clark Keating now present the first English transla

Don Quixote de la Mancha (part II) : being the spurious continuation of Miguel de Cervantes' part I by Alonso Fernández de Avellaneda( Book )
9 editions published between 1980 and 2009 in English and held by 304 libraries worldwide
Don Quixote is a middle-aged man living in 16th century La Mancha in Spain who is obsessed with romance novels involving chivalry. He arms himself to defend the weak and vanquish the wicked. The two-part novel is the story of his many and often very humorous adventures. The novel is rated as one of the premier works of Western literature and is the source of the popular terms "tilting at windmills" and "quixotic" for one's pursuit of something purely fanciful

8 editions published in 1980 in English and Multiple languages and held by 296 libraries worldwide
Daily life depicted in the Cantigas de Santa Maria by John Esten Keller( Book )
9 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 280 libraries worldwide
The hundreds of illuminated miniatures found in the Cantigas de Santa Maria, centered around the miracles of the Virgin Mary and sponsored by King Alfonso X (1252-84), reveal many vistas of daily life in thirteenth-century Spain. No other source provides such an encyclopedic view of all classes of medieval European society, from kings and popes to the lowest peasants. Men and women are seen farming, hunting, engaging in war, going on pilgrimage, watching bullfights, gambling, making love, tending silkworms, eating, cooking, and writing poetry. Placing the cantigas in the context of medieval life, the authors have grouped the illuminations by theme and introduce each section with commentary on the illustrations that follow

The book of Count Lucanor and Patronio : a translation of Don Juan Manuel's El Conde Lucanor by Juan Manuel( Book )
12 editions published between 1977 and 2015 in English and held by 69 libraries worldwide
Don Juan Manuel, nephew of King Alfonso X, The Wise, knew well the appeal of exempla (moralized tales), which he believed should entertain if they were to provide ways and means for solving life's problems. His fourteenth-century book, known as El Conde lucanor, is considered by many to be the purest Spanish prose before the immortal Don Quixote of Cervantes written two centuries later. He found inspiration for his tales in classical and eastern literatures, Spanish history, and folklore. His stories are not translations, but are his retelling of some of the best stories in existence. The tr
