Butterflies of Titian Ramsay Peale Journal

American Museum of Natural History, Tom Lichtenheld


This hardcover journal is based on the rediscovered manuscript of American artist and naturalist Titian Ramsay Peale (1799–1885). Titian Peale devoted his life to The Butterflies of North America, an ambitious and comprehensive illustrated manuscript equivalent in scope to Audubon’s Birds of North Americ. Housed in the rare book room of the American Museum of Natural History, this extraordinary work is being reproduced for the first time in a book, calendar and a gorgeous collection of stationery products (there is also a companion set of Titian Peale Butterfly Notecards).
