Thomas Conder’s allegorical map in a 1778 edition of A Pilgrim’s Progress, by John Bunyan, originally published in 1678. Sloth is hanged, along with Simple and Presumption, on the road past Mount Cavalry and the Slough of Despondency. This color version is from an 1844 reprinting by D. Newell. Thanks Jo Guldi.
