These beautiful vintage pen and ink images come from “The Picture Natural History” with about four hundred illustrations by Mary E.C. Boutell, edited with an introduction by her father the Rev Charles Boutell, M.A. Published in 1874.

They feature a beautiful Falcon and Talons

My copy of the book was quite foxed and falling apart with insect damage throughout. Amazingly most of the illustrations were still in good condition. Scanning and preserving these wonderful illustrations seemed a terrific way to keep them alive.

The pictures are very detailed although it does not seem to come through in the photographs

Any of these Boutell Animal and Critter images can be mixed and matched. If you would like a special group please convo me for price and shipping. I am happy to make any special listing you wish.

This is 1" sized BUTTON

As a BUTTON they are perfect for your hat, coat, messenger bag, purse, notebook cover, wherever a small statement or bit of art is needed. Spruce up your cloth recycling bags to make them your own! Use them to decorate packages or tuck into gifts.

It can be made up as a magnet for an extra $ .50

If you choose the MAGNET feature it would be great on a fridge, filing cabinet or locker or any other place, which needs a little brightening.

Please excuse any glare from the camera. The buttons themselves are free from any glare spots

From the Charming (and often inaccurate) descriptions of Mary Boutell.

In olden times hawking was a favorite amusement, and falcons were therefor4e in great request. They were trained to dash at partridges with their swift flight, and would strike them down with the greatest ease. The Gyr Falcon is very rare in England, Its eggs may view found on the rocky shores of Norway and Iceland. The bird will defend its young to the last extremity with almost fierce affection, dashing repeatedly at the face of the daring thief who would rob it of its dearest treasures.
