FO: The Original Spanish Edition
of Jose Rizal's Noli Me Tangere

Rizal's Noli Me Tangere (Original Spanish Version)

When I posted "FO: Books in Spanish," I linked to a reprint of Noli Me Tangere in Spanish, but it was not the original edition printed in Berlin. Thanks to John Nery, I am now able to link to the original 1887 Spanish edition of Noli Me Tangere by Jose Rizal on Scribd, which may also be downloaded as a pdf file.

Incidentally, a new English translation of Noli Me Tangere is now available as part of the Penguin Classics series. Hear Harold Augenbraum, the translator, explain his involvement with Rizal's book in an interview by Elda Rotor in a podcast on "José Rizal and the Novel That Sparked the Philippine Revolution." Unlike the original Spanish edition above, which is freely available, the Noli's new English edition and Augenbraum's forthcoming translation of El Filibusterismo (the sequel to the Noli) are available in print and eBook editions for a fee.

Is Augenbraum's translation of the Noli better than previous ones? See what Nery has to say in "Erasing Ateneo" (Philippine Daily Inquirer, 16 June 2009).
