For sale here is an original vintage roll down school chart of. WHITE NETTLE - JUNG KOCH QUENTELL. This beautifully illustrated chart of white nettle is a lithograph, it is on a pale olive green background which was later changed to a blue/grey colour when Hagemann took over sole publishing. I have only ever had it in this colour a few times before.The nettle can be seen in full as well as in some closer anatomical detail. Printed on paper and backed with canvas, this chart has a wooden dowel top and bottom. It has spent most of it's life rolled up in a cupboard so the colours are still fresh and bright. There is often light wear that comes with use on these charts.
This chart is in good condition there are some light creases and some signs of light wear near the top and on the edges. It has been slightly cropped along the bottom, this hasn't impacted upon the image at all. 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.
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. The lithographs stopped around 1965. You can find modern reprints of these charts from many online sellers but they lack the atmosphere and history of the vintage ones.
