Period Paper is pleased to offer a collection of rare, limited edition 1893 halftones of the locals and wildlife of the Patagonia area of South America. Originally illustrated by J. Smit and Alfred Hartley, the images largely depict the native species of Argentina and Chile, documenting both wildlife and botanical subjects, as well as the historic treatment and documentation of scientific subjects at a time of increasing exploration, adventure and curiosity, thirty-four years after the original publication of Charles DarwinÕs On the Origin of Species.
