Commentary In Sierra Morena, don Quixote begins to do his love penance (some somersaults) before Sancho leaves for El Toboso to take don Quixote's letter for Dulcinea.
Don Quixote's depiction is impossible.
Sancho's drawing is not too much good. 
Notes 1 - Same plate from London: Tonson, 1738 Spanish edition and London: Tonson, 1742 English edition.
2 - Well-known illustration since Savery (Dordrecht: Savery, 1657).
