Early Vintage Snake Images
I first posted these Vintage Snake Images a few years ago. I’ve scanned some more and I’m adding them to the page. The new ones are at the top of the page and the older illustrations are at the bottom. These were scanned from a fabulous early Natural History Book about Amphibians in my collection. The book is Circa 1838 and is from Germany. These Cool Snake Art Printables would be great to use in your Halloween decor!
This early Natural History Print shows 3 different black and white snakes on a creamy paper background. The writing is in German, I am assuming it says the names of the species of each Snake, but I can’t say for sure. The illustration is numbered in the upper right hand corner.
I’ve also pulled the Snake Images off of the page, so that you can use them individually if you prefer. This first one shows a Snake that it is eating another reptile! All that we see left is a foot and a tail, it looks like some sort of Lizard to me.
Next we have this Engraving of a smallish sort of plain looking snake.
And then we have this very long, and very curly, Snake with his tongue hanging out. He has quite a narrow tail on him.
This is the Natural History Snake that I first scanned. Shown above is a creepy, but cool, black and white drawing of a curly scaly Snake! He’s got some lovely markings on him and he appears to be a very inquisitive creature! This one is on the original creamy paper background still.
And here we have the black and white version of that same Snake Illustration, with out the paper background.
You might also like another graphic from the same book, you can find that one HERE and you can find an interesting Snake Skeleton Image HERE.I hope you can find some cool ways to use these Snake Art Printables in your projects!
