Most widely held works by Thomas Shelton
Don Quixote by Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra( Book )

92 editions published between 1612 and 2001 in English and Japanese and held by 2,564 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although published nearly 400 years ago in Spanish, this parody of the chivalrous life remains amazingly familiar in translation today-perhaps from the extensive influence it has played on novelists, playwrights and even composers over the centuries, or perhaps from its eternal story of the childlike and comic view of a decayed world by a madman stuck in a golden past
The history of the valorous and witty knight errant Don Quixote, of the Mancha by Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra( Book )

75 editions published between 1652 and 2015 in English and held by 517 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The story follows the adventures of a hidalgo named Mr. Alonso Quixano who reads so many chivalric romances that he loses his sanity and decides to set out to revive chivalry, undo wrongs, and bring justice to the world, under the name Don Quixote de la Mancha. He recruits a simple farmer, Sancho Panza, as his squire, who often employs a unique, earthy wit in dealing with Don Quixote's rhetorical orations on antiquated knighthood
