Antique Bible Illustration Garden of Eden

Eden, in the Morning of Creation
I pulled the two lovely antique color illustrations below from an old hurt book titled The Beautiful Story: A Companion Book to the Holy Bible, written and printed by J.W. Buel, the renowned writer and historian, assisted by Rev. T. DeWitt Talmage, D.D. Boston MA: Eastern Publishing Co., 1888.  

JPG images have to edited to remove imperfections due to poor condition of book from which they were removed.
