Commentary Don Quixote takes a ride through the Barcelona streets accompanied by Antonio Moreno.
Don Antonio has put a parchment with don Quixote's name on his back, so everybody recognizes the kight (see the boys pointing to him).
A Castilian (on the left; notice his gesture) tells don Quixote that he must abandon his folly. "Tu eres loco, y si lo fueras a solas, y dentro de las puertas de tu locura, fuera menos mal; pero tienes propiedad de volver locos, y mentecatos a cuantos te tratan" (62:2).
Figures of excellent drawing and engraving; the view of Barcelona is not real. 
Notes 1 - Same plate from London: Tonson, 1738 Spanish edition and London: Tonson, 1742 English edition.
