True, Amazon does not give specific details of their books. But it does have a "Look Inside" link to a lot of its books--paper and digital-- plus free sample downloads of ALL kindle ebooks that covers up to an entire chapter which should give a browsers all the information needed. John Ormsby's is the definitive translation of the Don as far as I am concerned for capturing what must have been the dry humor of the original.

I agree about the Amazon site, which often mis-describes books, stating that the translator is so-and-so when it is not. Feedbooks is more careful.l In the case of Don Quixote, John Ormsby is named as translator, so we do know what we are getting.

Edith Grossman's excellent translation was published only a few years ago. It's very good. But it's unreasonable to expect to get it for free!
