Commentary Well-known scene since Savery (Dordrecht: Savery, 1657).
Well-resolved composition; don Quixote attacks Maese Pedro's theater before an astonished public and Sancho.
Accurate details (Maese Pedro's patch, his servant holding a wand to tell the story...).
Some details (lamp) are copied from Coypel (Paris: Surugue, 1724).
Poor engraving. 
Notes 1 - Same wooden-block first engraved for Exeter: J. & B. Williams, 1827-28, and 1843.
2 - Placed as frontis #3.
