Commentary In the foreground, Sancho wakes up and discovers that Ginés de Pasamonte has stolen his donkey; Don Quixote observes him with astonishment.
In the background, Ginés de Pasamonte running away with the donkey, although in Cervantes' text it is said: "y antes que amaneciese se halló bien lejos de poder ser hallado" (23:1).
The complete description of this scene (the saddle on four stakes) appears in chapter 4:2.
Well-detailed engraving but badly-preserved print.
