Rare and Remarkable Animals of Scotland

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.

About redbudart

I live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, just outside of Portland, Oregon. My usual interests are cooking, wine, horticulture, art, and old books, but lately I've been obsessed with saving for a piece of land, so I can practice sustainability and learn to live as close to the land as possible, and then help others to do the same. To relax I listen to Dharma talks. Namaste!
