Plate XV, the last in this grouping and in the edition, is entitled "Entrée de
L’amour et de la Richesse aux Noces de Camache." It appears in Volume III as a frontis to the
title page for the Índices, and thus not in correspondence with the Cervantes’ text, but it
accompanied at one time Chapter 20 of Part II. This time the engraver is Marie-Magdeleine
Horthemels, and the paper quality, dimensions, and inking are similar to those of the other
engravings in this group. The plate, however, appears to have lost, due to severe trimming,
the usual legend at the bottom indicating the printer and place where it was offered for sale.
It also shows signs of foxing throughout, and its present measurements are 295 x 330 mm.
