Celestina by Fernando de Rojas( Book )

1,172 editions published between 1 and 2017 in 20 languages and held by 11,361 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Celestina is the most remarkable work produced in 15th century Spain and its influence has been enduring and profound. It is a prose dialogue divided into 21 'acts', starting in comedy and ending in tragedy. The main trigger of events is the passion conceived by the youth Calisto for the inexperienced Melibea. The ubiquitous, scheming, shrewd old hag Celestina attempts to exploit the emotions of the young people in scenes ranging from bedroom to brothel. The heightening tension eventually explodes in disaster for everyone. This complete and lavish edition brings both to students and the general public a masterpiece whose impostance in European literature is undisputed.

Spanish:  La Celestina ha sido, sin duda, uno de los mayores grandes éxitos de la literatura española. Se dice que hubo más de 200 ediciones antiguas, aunque se conservan menos de la mitad de ellas. La obra, de Fernando de Rojas (fallecido en 1541), comenzó como una comedia en 16 actos, que se ampliaron a 21 en la tragicomedia, y esta versión fue la que llegó a popularizarse. La obra no solo se publicó en toda España, sino que se hicieron impresiones del texto español en Lisboa, Roma, Venecia, Milán y Amberes. Prueba de su gran popularidad son también las primeras traducciones realizadas al italiano, al alemán, al francés, al inglés y al holandés. Esta preciosa edición ilustrada, realizada por el pintor sevillano Cromberger alrededor de 1518-1520, es, en realidad, la tercera de la serie de ediciones que realizó el impresor y la única que tituló Libro de Calixto y Melibea y de la puta vieja Celestina en lugar del clásico Tragicomedia de Calisto y Melibea. Lo más interesante de la impresión de Cromberger es la serie de grabados xilográficos que utiliza casi sin variación en todas sus primeras ediciones de La Celestina, realizadas probablemente con los mismos tacos. Se encuentran al principio de cada acto y son de dos tipos: una serie de grabados rectangulares más amplios que representan episodios, y otra serie de grabados sueltos de figuras que muestran personajes, árboles y edificios. Estas, llamadas figuras factótum, se convertirían en ser características de los pliegos sueltos españoles hasta bien entrado el siglo XIX. El ejemplar que aquí se muestra es una extraordinaria rareza bibliográfica, ya que es la única copia sobreviviente de esta edición. English:  La Celestina is undoubtedly one of the greatest bestsellers in Spanish literature. It is said to have been printed in more than 200 early editions, although fewer than half of these have survived. The work, by Fernando de Rojas (died 1541), began as a comedy in 16 acts, which was extended to 21 acts in the tragicomedy, which became the popular version. In addition to being published throughout Spain, the Spanish text was printed in Lisbon, Rome, Venice, Milan and Antwerp. Early translations into Italian, French, German, English, and Dutch attest to the great popularity of the work. This beautiful illustrated edition, published by the Seville printer Cromberger around 1518--20, is the third of a series of editions by this printer, and the only one entitled Libro de Calixto y Melibea y de la puta vieja Celestina (The book of Calixto and Melibea and of the old whore Celestina) instead of the classic Tragicomedia de Calisto y Melibea (The tragic-comedy of Calisto and Melibea). The most interesting aspect of Cromberger's printing is his use, without variation, of a series of woodcut prints in all of his editions of La Celestina, which were probably made from the same printing blocks. They are found at the beginning of each act and are of two types: broad rectangular engravings that represent episodes, and another series of loose engravings showing figures of characters, trees, and buildings. These so-called factotum figures were to become characteristic of Spanish broadsheets well into the 19th century. The book presented here is an extraordinary bibliographic rarity, as it is the only surviving copy of this edition
