|Commentary||Before Governor Sancho, accompanied by his secretary and majordomo (?), a tailor shows five little hoods, one on each finger; also the accusing farmer.
Original choice; in previous editions it has been represented the judgement between the woman and the man accused of rape, and the judgement of the hidden money.
It has been represented the funniest moment: when the tailor shows the five little hoods.
Rich details (excellent burin engraving); Sancho's figure with dignity; farmer's face is a real portrait.
Details from Cervantes' text: incription "OY DIA XVI DE [...]TO DEL AÑO DE[...] TOMÓ LA POSS[...] DE ESTA INSUL[...] EL SR. DN. SANCH[...] PANZA QUE M[...] AÑOS LA GOC[...]".
Good drawing and engraving.
|Notes||1 - This scene was not represented in Madrid: Ibarra, 1780.
2 - The date August the 16th for Sancho's investiture is invented; Cervantes does not say any date. However, this date contradicts the chronological plan made by the Spanish Royal Academy (t. I, p. ccliii), where Sancho's investiture is established in November the first.
