Commentary Ornamental initial "C" adorned with books, parchment, quills and a laurel wreath. It also appears a shinnning star. The whole illustration can be understood as the genius of Cervantes as a writer.
It does not include any kind of specific reference to this chapter.
Very good decorative effect.
