Notes

First Westall edition. Richard Westall (1765-1836) was an important illustrator and a "significant and innovative figure in the development of the English watercolour," whose engravings for Don Quixote are lively and well executed. Westall served for nine years as drawing master to Princess Victoria and is best remembered for his portraits of Byron, which hang in the National Gallery (ODNB).
