Commentary The captive, Ruy Pérez de Viedma, ties his letter to the string hold by Zoraida, whose hand appears through the window.
The scene (it should be a baño in Algiers) has not been set accurately; it is more English than Arabic.
Good drawing and engraving.
In an ornamental and architectural frame with Bacchus' symbols (thyrsus, grapevine leaves...) and a book (references to Comedy); the whole illustration has got a remarkable decorative effect.
