The Pilgrim's Progress -

Bamforth & Co. (MacKeith set).
Seven slides from a large set of 42 slides. All slides are numbered with description in the mat.

The set is based on drawings by the Scottish artists David Scott (1806-1849) and his brother William Bell Scott, in an edition of The Pilgrim's Progress originally published in 1851, (The Pilgrim's Progress with forty illustrations by David Scott, R.S.A., &c.; a life of Bunyan by the Rev. J. M. Wilson; and explanatory notes abridged from the Rev. Thomas Scott, published by A. Fullarton, London, Edinburgh and Dublin).
The editor of this volume, states that David did the first part and his brother the second part (about Christina) after his brother's death. It appears that either the brothers shared the first part or that William Bell Scott, who did all of the illustrations for the second, added a few to the first.
16. Christian is harnessed for the Pilgrimage.  
17. Christian equipped goes on his Way. 18. The Fight with Apollyon.
19. A hand from Heaven heals Christian's wounds. 23. Christian hails Faithful journeying on before.
27. They are made a Derision at Vanity Fair. 31. They journey by the Water of Life.
