The overall condition is excellent, just some light edge wear and a slight bow. It comes with the original paper key in German. 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 acted 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.
