|Commentary||In the center, the barber maese Nicolás declares before the mocked barber that the basin is Mambrino's helmet; on the left, don Quixote seizes Sancho, who wants to recuperate the stolen packsaddle; the priest and several characters (don Fernando, officers of justice...) observe the scene.
English picturesque setting; some anecdotal details (dog).
Excellent drawing and engraving.
