Description

Absolutely stunning original Zoology Chart by A. Pichler’s Witwe & Sohn dating to early 1900s.

It shows Aves I. (Situs viscerum) – the internal anatomy of a Bird. For its age this chart is in stunning condition, the colors and saturation of the printing is sharp and crisp.

Pichlers Witwe & Sohn “(A. Pichler’s Widow & Son) was an Austrian publisher and printer based at 2 Margaretenplatz, Vienna, founded in 1793 by Anton Andreas Pichler (June 1770 – July 1823)

“On Pichler’s death in 1823, the business passed to his widow, who proved to be an astute businesswoman. In 1851, her son Franz Pichler, born in 1808, was recorded as her business partner, the firm then operating under the name of A. Pichlers Witwe & Sohn. In 1865, on his mother’s death, Franz became sole owner of the firm and assigned the printing section to W. Köhler. In 1874, control of the firm passed to Franz Pichler jr., born in 1845. He expanded the business by establishing a department dealing with educational aids.

In the early 1900s the firm published a series of zoological wall charts created by Paul Pfurtscheller, the Austrian zoologist and natural history illustrator.”

It is a very large and impressive chart measuring 135cms wide and 143cms long including the poles. Framing this chart would not only preserve it but add to its value. Some sell framed charts in this series for many thousands of pounds so not only a sound investment but also glorious to look at.

No International Shipping on this item due to its length (cost for overseas large parcels is very high)
