Rare Original Drawing of Metric System (Genealogy Tree)
Precio de venta
This fascinating drawing depicts an illustration of the metric system in the form of a genealogy tree. Annotated in Spanish, the piece outlines the different terms of the metric system along with key information such as its origins and advantages, decorated with a beautifully ornate design of tree branches, leaves and roots. The metric system was first used in Spain in 1852, and the style and signs of ageing of this piece suggest it may have been an early informative tool during this implementation.
