|Commentary||Don Quixote knighted at the inn by the innkeeper; one of the party girls (doña Tolosa) buckles on his spurs.
Image full of irony; notice the figure of the innkeeper holding a book in front of his face, don Quixote's ridiculous position or doña Molinera's bow.
Drawing and engraving are excellent.
