Spiders & Snakes! Yikes!

Today's post comes straight out of our archives here at PPS.
You'll note we had already posted some pages from the antique book on snakes of the British Museum quite early on in our time blogging. Today's may seem overly refined, but the two we're posting were, for some inexplicable reason, very nearly pristine as they were. 
Our spider page comes out of an old Harper's Reader dated 1888. This one little volume has some quite charming (?) images, including that of our arachnid friends below.
Hope you will enjoy our little foray into naturalism today as much as we do sharing our ephemera with you.
Please note that there is a fun music video clip for you at the bottom of this post. ;)
Happy Creativity!
Rose
