Educational Prints at the Náprstek Museum

Educational Prints at the Náprstek Museum AbstractCollections of the National Museum – Náprstek Museum of Asian, African and American Cultures include a set of 355 educational images printed on cloth and hand-coloured. They were published by the Working Men’s Educational Union based in London to accompany public lectures for British workers, and purchased by Vojta Náprstek in 1862 during his visit to the World Exposition in London for an industrial museum he had planned. Topics of the prints come from natural sciences (astronomy, anatomy, fauna, flora, physics, geology) as well as humanities (archaeology, ethnology, history, theology). A collection of this size has not been preserved anywhere else in the Czech lands. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Annals of the Náprstek Museum de Gruyter

Abstract

AbstractCollections of the National Museum – Náprstek Museum of Asian, African and American Cultures include a set of 355 educational images printed on cloth and hand-coloured. They were published by the Working Men’s Educational Union based in London to accompany public lectures for British workers, and purchased by Vojta Náprstek in 1862 during his visit to the World Exposition in London for an industrial museum he had planned. Topics of the prints come from natural sciences (astronomy, anatomy, fauna, flora, physics, geology) as well as humanities (archaeology, ethnology, history, theology). A collection of this size has not been preserved anywhere else in the Czech lands.
