|Commentary||From the whole episode, it has not been chosen don Quixote fighting or defeating the Knight of the Mirrors, but a previous and more tender scene. Don Quixote helps Sancho to climb on a tree because he is frightened of the big-nosed squire (Tomé Cecial disguised).
On the left, the Knight of the Mirrors (Sansón Carrasco) and his squire.
Drawing and engraving are quite good.
|Notes||1 - Same plate first engraved for London: Tonson, 1749, now partially-erased.
