"Pilgrim's Progress" by John Bunyan, Published by Sampson Low, Marston, Searle, & Rivington, London 1883 (Illustrated by Gordon Browne), part 2

Just a few more pictures from this beautifully illustrated book by Gordon Browne. According to Wikipedia he was the son of H.K. Browne (known as "Phiz") who was Charles Dickens' illustrator. He became much more accomplished than his father though and illustrated many children's books by authors like G.A. Henty, Juliana Horatia Ewing, Frederic William Farrar, Andrew Lang, L.T. Meade, E. Nesbit and others.

The dark figure in the background does remind me of Gruffalo a bit! So many weird details in this book.
