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 passions are cuisine, wine, horticulture, art, and vintage things, especially old books. I moved here in 2014, work a day job in finance, and spend the rest of my time working on my dream of living off the land, and teaching young people how to as well. Stop by my Etsy shops, where all proceeds are going towards the goal. Thank you and Namaste!
