Rare Antique 19th Century Wall Chart by Rudolf Leuckart, Coral, 1885


Very rare antique wall chart from a series produced by celebrated German zoologists Rudolf Leuckart (the "father of parasitology," 1822-1898), Hinrich Nitsche (1845-1902) und Carl Chun (marine biologist, 1852-1914). They were published by Th. G. Fischer & Co (Kassel and Leipzig) and printed by Hermann Richter & Co in Leipzig.
113 'Wandtafeln' (wall charts) were manufactured between 1877 and 1892 and used worldwide as teaching aids at universities and schools. Series 1 (Fol. I) consists of 101 charts, Series 2 (Fol. II) consists of 12 charts. The very rare wall chart of Coelenterata (Anthozoa, Corallenthiere) is chart 1 of Series 1.
Chromolithograph on four sheets of paper, mounted on canvas and fixed to wooden dowels. The artist Carl Chun signed with his initials 'Ch'.

Some creasing, stiffness and tanning but overall very good condition considering its age and use, with beautiful and bizarre illustrations.
