|Commentary||The innkeeper seizing don Quixote to prevent him from attacking the wineskins.
Accurate to Cervantes' text, don Quixote appears asleep, holding his sword and his arm wrapped with a blanket.
Sancho, astonished, the priest, barber, Dorotea and other observe the scene.
Well-known scene, but Cruikshank's personal drawing style is very remarkable; notice the expressions of the innkeeper and Sancho; also don Quixote's gesture and figure.
|Notes||1 - Compare with another illus. by the same illustrator about the same episode for London: Knight & Lacey, 1824.
2 - Print with quite foxing.
