Don Quixote

Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra (1547-1616), a Spaniard, published his most famous work, that of "Don Quijote de La Mancha" in two parts, part 1 appearing in 1605, and part 2 in 1615.

Much of the story is very visual, and illustrated editions were the norm.

You can read the text of the windmill encounter from the John Ormsby translation of 1895, or via Project Gutenberg get the whole text of this translation, or the Spanish language text.
