Knight-errant novels and other affronts

<<versión en español

As we said once before, Bodegas Qumrán is not a usual winery because of a lot of reasons. Among them, because its old books and incunabula collection that is so took care by its owner, Jesús Solís, which in turn is discovered so pleasantly by the visitants of the winery.

The picture is extracted from, perhaps one of the most interesting books of the library, El Caballero Zifar (The Zifar Knight). It is about a facsimile version of the first knight-errant novel in Spanish of the history. It was written in old Castilian, and it tells us about the adventures of a single man who had to leave his land in order to seek fortune escaping the misery, and after a while he returned as a wealthy man.
