Simple composition, but with excellent drawing (see housekeeper and Sancho's figures in tension) and engraving.
|Notes||1 - According to its own reference, this illustration is situated in Part II, Book II, Chapter 14, f.p. 189 (of this edition or 31:2), but this reference is wrong. It should be in Part II, Book I, Chapter 2, between pp. 10 and 11 (of this edition or 2:2).
