Hello, I'm studying English and for my thesis I have to translate a book written in English into Spanish but the condition is that the book had not to be translated into Spanish before.
Do you know where can I find a book?
Thanks, Marcela

I know that House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski hasn't been translated into Spanish yet, but I wouldn't wish that translation upon anybody

You might want to consider self-published novels or books from independent publishers. I don't have any specific books in mind but a bit of research on Google should suffice! Otherwise just pick an English book or author that you like and check if Spanish translations exist. Google is your friend.

This was published 1918 but to my knowledge has not been translated into other languages. I self-published my German translation last year. Copies can be requested from Sternedale Classics.

Why don't you start at home? Find something you would enjoy translating and see if it has been translated. That way at least it'll be fun for you.
