I was told recently that I would love Tumblr, it was the Pinterest for the young, cool and hip. Hmmm…I had been pinning things to Pinterest boards for years so I thought I would give it a try. I love it! I now have a Tumblr blog . When I saw these images of animals on Tumblr, yes animals!, I went straight to the Biodiversity Heritage Library website, where they were posted from, and practically stayed there all weekend. The next posting will be about that remarkable site, but for now have a look at these prints, which came from “Rare and Remarkable Animals of Scotland, represented from living subjects:with practical observations on their nature. By Sir Graham Dalyell. 1847-1848.
