Commentary Don Quixote, accompanied by Sancho, discovers some windmills and recognizes them as giants.
Excellent drawing and engraving; good realism, details, gestures and expressions.
The windmills are not Spanish yet, but their representation is effective.
Remarkable and highly-detailed ornamental frame; it includes arms and two inscriptions ("DOÑA-DULCINEE-DU-TOBOSO" and "DON-QUICHOTTE-DE-LA-MANCH"). 
Notes 1 - Same illustration first appeared in Tours: A. Mame, 1848.
2 - Printed on China paper.
