This is the lossless PNG version of Image:Gustave Doré - Miguel de Cervantes - Don Quixote - Part 1 - Chapter 1 - Plate 1 "A world of disorderly notions, picked out of his books, crowded into his imagination".jpg. Wikipedia cannot currently thumbnail large PNGs, and it may be too large for your browser to comfortably handle. However, it does download, and is necessary for further attempts at restoration.

Due to file size limits, this is cropped relative to the JPG version. Notably, the text does not appear. I will attempt to bargain with one of the Wikipedia stewards to fix this.

Description

Plate I of Gustave Doré's illustrations to Miguel de Cervantes' Don Quixote. From Chapter I.

The ordering of images in this edition is a little complex: There are numerous additional illustrations besides the numbered plates:

This is the order of images up to the end of Chapter 1. For convenience, I shall provide my own overall numbering, to allow some semblance of order.
