A Manual of North American Butterflies free pdf Excerpt from A Manual of North American Butterflies In bringing together for the first time, descriptions of all the species of Butterflies which occur in North America, north of Mexico, I have experienced considerable difficulty. It has been impossible for me to sec specimens of some species, hence I have been obliged to compile descriptions in quite a number of cases, and scattered as the literature upon this subject is, through publications in this country and abroad, the task has not been an easy one: but as I have in the majority of species consulted original descriptions, the compilation can be relied upon as being correct. As this book is intended for the use of the tyro as well as for the advanced student, I have avoided the use of technical terms as far as possible, reducing the various methods of descriptions to a uniform system. Thus I trust that this work will be readily comprehended by every one who desires to consult its pages, without first being obliged to learn the peculiar applications which those who make the study of Butterflies a specialty, have seen fit to give to the various parts of these insects. Professional specialists are too apt to overlook the fact, that the average student who wishes to know something of every class of animal about him, has no time to learn a peculiar system of nomenclature with each- while simple designations arc intelligible alike to the amateur and professional student. I have, in every species, made the description as short as possible, using, where I could do so, the comparative method, as being loss confusing. In order to facilitate identification, not only is a colored plate given of one species of nearly all the genera, but wood cuts arc given of some portion of about two hundred and fifty species, illustrating some peculiar character by which the insect may be known. Both plates and wood cuts have, with a single exception, been drawn and engraved by myself. The arrangement given is that published by Mr. W. H. Edwards in his catalogue of 1884.
