Esta es de Don Quijote la primera, la sin par la gigante calavera



Broadside depicting a calavera of Don Quixote riding an equally skeletal horse. He charges other skeletons with his lance. They are trampled, flee in fear and fly into the air. A second image below that of Don Quixote shows calaveras outside a cemetery pursuing a group of young men and women. In addition, there are decorative elements in the text block: a bowing skeleton and a skeleton riding a bicycle with a large front wheel. A large image, on verso, shows a calavera leaving a grave and wrestling with a man. The text block is illustrated with small skeletons of soldiers.
