|Commentary||Don Quixote dialogues with the members of the braying mayors squadron while Sancho remains in the background.
Scene represented in England since Vanderbank (London: Tonson, 1738; in this case, Sancho appears braying).
Illustration in keeping with 18th century English liking for scenes about dialogue, without violence.
Drawing and engraving have little quality.
|Notes||The illustration is dated on September 1, 1792.
It has been place as frontispiece in volume II, but this scene belongs to chapter 27:2 (or chapter X in vol. III of this edition).
This illustration is a copy (newly engraved with quite less quality) after the one designed by Thomas Stothard and engraved by Angus for London: Harrison, 1782 (and 1792).
Notice that don Quixote's image is different compared to the other illustrations in this edition.
