Commentary At an inn, don Quixote asks don Álvaro Tarfe to declare that he is not the same don Quixote that don Álvaro Tarfe had met in Zaragoza; Sancho, a notary and the mayor are witnesses.
See gestures of don Quixote (left) and don Álvaro Tarfe (right).
First representation of this episode; very original choice.
Drawing and engraving are excellent and well-detailed in the figures.
