Commentary In Montesinos' cave, Montesinos himself introduces Durandarte, death on his own tomb, to don Quixote.
Well-proportionate figures; remarkable drawing and engraving
One of the best illustrations of the whole edition; Vernet's drawings have more quality than Lami's.
Don Quixote's figure and face are very remarkable.
Setting in keeping with Romanticism taste (Arab and medieval architecture). 
Notes 1 - Same plate first used for Paris: Furne, 1858 (also in 1861) copied after the illustration first appeared in Paris: Mequignon, 1821 (and 1822).
