Magic Lantern Slide: John Ploughman’s Pictures - Scant feeding of man or horse is small profit and sure loss

This slide is from a talk called ‘John Ploughman's pictures: or, more of his plain talk for plain people’, written by a Baptist preacher called Charles Spurgeon. The images form a comic tale with a moral message, and are all copied from a book written by Spurgeon. The slide is part of a collection given to the museum in 1981.
