Summary
"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, ... prepared for the printer by the artist more than 100 years ago, [is] published for the first time"--Page 4 of cover
