John Bowle was the first scholar to consider Don Quixote a masterpiece. His edition, published in six volumes in 1781, "the first truly learned edition," established a foundation for future study and editing of Cervantes's great work. Here, Cox explores the life and works of John Bowle, and considers his lasting legacy.
