|Commentary||Don Quixote charges against a barber who, to run away, jumps down from his mule; in the background, Sancho appears waving.
The illustration has been drawn and engraved with excellent quality; notice don Quixote's face, the barber's expression or the movement of Rocinante.
John Vanderbank (London: Tonson, 1738) represented a latter moment of this episode.
