Juan de la Cuesta is a celebrated name in Hispanic publications, most particularly because the first editions of Don Quijote -1605 and 1615- were printed on Cuesta’s presses; but even without Cervantes’ masterwork, Cuesta would have been famous through carefully prepared editions of other literary monuments and works of humanistic erudition.

The modern Juan de la Cuesta, founded by Tom Lathrop in 1978, is a descendent in spirit of its Madrid namesake since it strives to publish only the worthiest of manuscripts, in the handsomest of editions, and at reasonable prices.

 Within the monographs, aside from the more general works, we have developed specialty areas which include: Documentación cervantina, Estudios lingüísticos, Ediciones críticas, Estudios de literatura latinoamericana ‹‹Irving A. Leonard››, Homenajes, Clásicos para estudiantes, University of California-Irvine/Hispanic Studies, Estudios de la literatura moderna «Russell P. Sebold», Estudios judeoespañoles «Samuel G. Armistead y Joseph H. Silverman», and Estudios de literatura medieval ‹‹John E. Keller››.

 Juan de la Cuesta invites inquiries from scholarly authors in all fields of Hispanic language and literature.

  1. They made me wait forever (twice as long as they told me initially I would have to wait.) Then, the book was rejected because it’s too long, even though, according to them, “it is very well-researched and well-documented.” The entire response from the reviewers was 8 lines long. A little too little after waiting for over a year, in my opinion. They say that the manuscript is “repetitive and redundant in places”. It would have been great if they pointed out those places, so that I could make relevant changes.

    I don’t mind the manuscript being rejected by the very first publisher I sent it to, but I was really hoping to get some intelligent feedback and suggestions on how to improve it. This is definitely not the publisher who would do that for you.

  2. This is a sort of last resort publisher, although they put out some worthwhile material. Their editions of classics and critical volumes of conference proceedings and festschrift are probably their strong points. You will not get a lot of feedback, just a yes or no. They are small-scale and don’t do the whole “blind referee” process.

  3. In response to Anonymous on 13 November, 2012: This publisher is indexed quite well and it has some very reputable publications. Even you mention that they “put out some worthwhile material,” which makes your comment sound contradictory. So I’m not sure why it would be a last resort.

    I received a good peer-review process with respectable commentary. The process took approximately 9 months, which is still too long, but better than most.
