Framed French Anatomy Charts

These original French “Muscles du Corps” Anatomy Charts are circa 1920s and are from the famed institution Deyrolle. Since 1871 Deyrolle has been a Parisian institution for natural sciences and pedagogy. It is one of the best known companies of entomology and taxidermy of Paris. Today, Deyrolle is a shop and a cabinet of curiosities open to the public, a reference in the field of taxidermy, entomology and natural sciences. Deyrolle is well known for its pedagogical charts- everything that concerns the educational material, anatomical models in staff, biology pieces, and most of all, the creation of coloured wall charts, published under the name “Musée scolaire Deyrolle”. They are meant to teach the “Leçons de choses” (“Lessons of things”) but also Botany, Zoology, Entomology, Geography, Anatomy, Civics, Physics, Chemistry, Geology, Mineralogy and Biology! Tragically the shop had a major fire in 2008 where many of the collections were destroyed, making these prints rare and collectible. Both charts have been professionally framed and are in excellent condition.  Sold individually or as a pair.
