The Butterflies of Titian Ramsay Peale Notecards

This set of notecards is based on Titian Ramsay Peale’s The Butterflies of North America, an unpublished nineteenth -century manuscript equivalent in scope to Audubon’s Birds of America. Inspired by the collage-like quality of Peale’s original notes and drawings, this exquisite keepsake box contains 32 flat cards, 16 envelopes, and cotton twine; tie two cards together to create 16 two-layer cards. Peale’s manuscript is now housed in Rare Book Collection of the American Museum of Natural History’s Library.
