We have in the herbarium a collection of about 30 old wall charts showing
flower structure, anatomy, pollination, etc. from various families. The
charts appear to be hand-painted on a black background and are about 2' x
3' in size. They bear the name Fung, Koch, Quentell'sche Neue Wandtafeln
and were issued by Verlag Frommann & Morian, Darmstadt.
I am trying to find out how old they are and something about the botanical
artists who produced them. Does anyone know for instance if the Darmstadt
company still exists?
