Mercy left without the gate

William Bell Scott

Wood engraving

4 3/4 x 3 3/16 inches

Illustration for Bunyan's The Pilgrim's Progress, facing p. 232.

Scott's monogram appears at lower right

Interestingly, the illustrator has chosen Byzantine or Romanesque columns and arch in the doorway — not the kind of architecture one would associate with Bunyan
