For sale here is an original vintage roll down school chart of. FERN - JUNG, KOCH, QUENTELL.This beautifully illustrated chart shows the life cycle of ferns/ brackens against a dark background. (without poles 79cm x 107cm). Printed on card it has black wooden half poles top and bottom.
Please note there is no linen backing on this chart. This chart has spent most of its life rolled up in a school cupboard so the colours are still bright. Due to the fact that it is on card, the edges are a little fragile, we have repaired/reinforced these where possible with cross weave filament tape. It has been cropped along the top and bottom. The overall condition is good, there are a few blemishes and some light creases.
These old charts were produced as educational tools for schools and colleges by. Teacher Heinrich Jung, artist and biologist Gottlieb von Koch and college director, Doctor Friedrich Quentell. The dark background acts as a chalk board which allowed teachers to annotate them during the lesson. First published by Frommann and Morian in the early 1900's Hagemann became involved in the production around 1948 first in conjunction with Frommann and Morian then on their own from around 1963.You can find modern reprints of these charts from many online sellers but they lack the atmosphere and history of the vintage ones.
