Fighting windmills: Cambridge University Library online exhibition

"To mark the 400th anniversary of the death of Miguel de Cervantes, Cambridge University Library has released a virtual exhibition showcasing some rarely seen material from a wide number of collections.

The exhibition, which came out just before Christmas, focuses on Cervantes most celebrated character: Don Quixote. It aims to highlight some of the ways in which this figure has been appropriated by readers, artists and other writers throughout the centuries with a wide range of beautifully illustrated material."
