Vintage Biology Poster - Frog Anatomy, Denoyer-Geppert

Favorite

Description

About a dozen years ago, I bought a few armfuls of beautiful school maps and science posters from a wild character at a flea market somewhere in Pennsylvania; he told me he had salvaged them from a vacant school in upstate New York. I've kept a few of my favorites, but have finally resigned to part with the rest.

Once ubiquitous in American classrooms, these artifacts were ultimately replaced by updated versions and newer technology, but their esthetic appeal remains timeless.

Published by Denoyer-Geppert of Chicago as part of their "General Biology" series, this poster, "Frog Anatomy," details the internal organs and nervous system of frogs with elegant illustrations in vivid color.

This poster is dated both 1964 and 1968 at the bottom, so I presume was first published in the former year and then reprinted in the latter. It has amazingly vibrant colors and is in great vintage condition. The spring roller works so the poster stays down or retracts easily as desired.

The metal bracket measures 48" across, the wooden spindle is 47", and the map itself is 43.5" wide. When pulled down, the map is 42" long, including the hem.

Thanks,
Sam
