[Eleven scenes from Don Quixote.]
[Engraved dates 1742-1745.]
Eleven engravings [of 30?]. Each 220 x 165mm, 8¾ x 10½". Edges folded over.
Engravings by van Schley, Picart and Tanjé after Charles Antoine Coypel. Coypel was commissioned to create designs for a set of tapestries relating the story of Don Quixote in 1720, with a contract for engraving them following in 1721. The engravings were very profitable, and this smaller set was published later, probably to illustrate an edition of Cervantes' picaresque novel.
