Commentary In the center of the composition, don Quixote kneels before the innkeeper (holding a book and a sword).
In the background, doña Molinera with don Quixote's spurs and doña Tolosa with his sword.
In the foreground, a candle, held by a boy, creates interesting light and shadow effects (see innkeeper, don Quixote's armour...).
Good drawing and engraving. 
Notes 1 – Plate newly engraved in a reduced size by Van der Gucht after his own plate with Vanderbank’s design first engraved for London: Tonson, 1738.
2 - The figure of the innkeeper has been attributed to William Hogarth.
