Early 20th Century Pull Down Chart of Lobster
:: Very rare early if not first edition vintage circa 1920s of Jurica Biology Series pull down science chart depicting highly desirable Crayfish (chart number JZS 7), published by A.J. Nystrom. Hilary Jurica, the illustrator of the Jurica Biology Series, received his doctorate degree in the 1922, and this series followed as he continued his work in the field. Later versions in color of the Series are more often seen, though still rather hard to find, but these early pieces are true relics of the era. Beautiful drawings with no color, original canvas backing; this piece not only has a great look but has historical significance, quite the conversation piece! Condition is overall fair considering age with browning, some paper peeling, and missing original dowel from bottom -- we will repair with a new dowel prior to shipping it out so that it can be ready to be hung. Measures approximately 54" wide including dowel and 42" long.
