Jervas' "translation of Cervantes' novel Don Quixote, published posthumously in 1742 as being made by Charles 'Jarvis' – because of a printer's error – has since come to be known as 'the Jarvis translation'. Jervas was first to provide an introduction to the novel including a critical analysis of previous translations of Don Quixote. It has been highly praised as the most accurate translation of the novel up to that time, but also strongly criticised for being stiff and humourless, although it went through many printings during the 19th century."
