Description

Fantastic 19th century wall chart of the Turnip Fly or Flea Beetle by EA Ormerod for the Royal Agricultural Society of England.

Eleanor Anne and Georgiana Ormerod were sisters who published many informative texts on insect pests at a time when women rarely worked in science. Georgiana illustrated, while Eleanor usually carried out the research, they published many papers and manuals between 1870 and 1890 including the “Manual of Injurious Insects”.

This canvas wall chart with original wooden hanging rails bears the stamp of the Hortus Botanicus Leiden, the oldest Botanical Garden in The Netherlands where it would have been used as a teaching aid.

There is some creasing, stiffness and tanning but overall it is in very good condition considering its age and use, with beautiful illustrations.
