The Butterflies of North America: Titian Peale's Lost Manuscript

By American Museum of Natural History, Titian Ramsay Peale, Kenneth Haltman
The American artist and naturalist Titian Ramsay Peale II (1799 1885) had a passion for butterflies, and throughout his long life he wrote and illustrated an ambitious and comprehensive manuscript. The book, along with a companion volume on caterpillars, was never published, and it resides today in the Rare Book Collection of the American Museum of Natural History in New York. Now Peale s color plates, lovingly prepared for the printer by the artist more than 100 years ago, will be published for the first time in this beautiful volume. At last, Peale s life work, equivalent in scope and beauty to Audubon s "Birds of North America," will be available to a wide audience. The book includes a foreword by Ellen V. Futter and text by Kenneth Haltman and David A. Grimaldi that describes the art and science Peale brought to his extraordinary work.
