|Commentary||At dawn, Sancho discovers the big and fake nose of the Knight of the Mirrors' squire (Tomé Cecial disguised), getting frightened.
Well-known scene in the 18th and 19th centuries English editions (see London: Hurst, Robinson and Co., 1820).
Drawing and engraving are very acceptable.
|Notes||1 - Copy after the illustration designed by unknown designer for London: Rivington, 1792.
2 - Ridley's signature as "Ridley Pr." (in other illus. "Ridley P.") maybe refers not to the engraver, but to the printer.
