Butterfly & Moth Girls - cigarette cards - part 1

I stumbled across this set of cigarette cards in the New York Public Library Digital Collection and thought they were rather fun.Produced by the British American Tobacco Company in 1928 they're odd yet beautiful. Each of the 50 cards in the series (for some reason I could only source 49 of them) features a different butterfly girl and a description about the particular (real) butterfly or moth on the reverse.

This is part 1 of a 2 - part post on Butterfly and Moth Girls:
