James Bolton was an 18th-century English illustrator, who is best known for his collection of bird prints. Bolton was an avid naturalist who gave special attention to subtle details of birds and their environs. The illustrations included in his ‘Harmonia Ruralis’ show this detail in his inclusion of nests, eggs, and habitat that are unique to each bird.

 

This work is incredibly rare and valuable. It is notoriously broken apart for the plates themselves to be framed and displayed, thus, finding them intact is very difficult to find. In fact, individual illustrations from this edition are known to sell for hundreds of dollars each!
