Commentary Don Quixote reading chivalric books at his library and holding his sword; books and arms all around the room and the greyhound; the housekeeper and the niece observe him upset.
Very remarkable drawing and engraving; don Quixote's figure is excellent; notice also the housekeeper, only sketched, but remarkable.
Influenced by Doré and Johannot.
