Chrysanthemum leucanthemum [Chrysanthemum]
Braunschweig: Friedrich Viewig & Sons, 1895. Colour-printed lithograph. Discreet ink stamp in the lower right corner of the plate. Good condition apart from some overall light soiling, mild rippling. A rare, vividly coloured plate from 'Anschauungstafeln fuer den Unterricht in der Pflanzenkunde', Friedrich Oskar Pilling's detailed series of botanical teaching posters. Botanical posters such as this were primarily used by German university instructors during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries to teach courses in botany and phytopharmacy. They were also sometimes used in high school biology classes. Typically, they were hung on the walls of a classroom or lecture hall where the teacher could refer to them during the course of a lecture. The particular series from which this plate comes most likely illustrates the complete system of flowering plants as well as the most common and significant species of the major plant families. Although occasionally printed as a series and issued by a major publisher such as Viewig & Sons, these didactic posters were frequently individually hand-made and hand-painted. They are rarely used today, and can usually only be found in university archives, libraries, and botanical museums.
