Introduction Anybody who’s been to the former location of our antiquariaat in Haarlem might remember that the office of Ab van der Steur was upstairs, hidden a floor above the rooms that were open to visitors. His office was filled to the brim with documents, books, manuscripts and prints that all were part of some kind of work in progress. In front of him stood a large bookcase, the contents of which form the core of this catalogue. This collection of heraldry was one of his most ambitious projects. Of the 150 items in this catalogue, the 36 patents of nobility catch the eye. These documents were produced to make the ennobling of a person official and have the skillfully hand painted coat-of-arms and the signatures of the king or emperor. The historical value of such a document is obvious, but the level of artistic skill in the production of these patents is no less impressive. Every detail is of the highest standard and the material used is flawless. Each country seems to follow a certain style in the production of these patents. The Viennese patents from the late 18th and early 19th century are bound in full silk covers, while the eight British grants of arms in this catalogue are unbound charters, stored in a clothed oblong case. What they all have in common is that vellum is the privileged support. The most impressive patent in this catalogue might be the Spanish medieval patent (1544) with an incredible hand painted title page (H141). Manuscripts form another notable part of this catalogue. These unique documents often show hundreds of hand painted heraldic designs and the fact that the contents are one of a kind makes them very interesting for heraldic researchers and collectors. Notable manuscripts in the catalogue are a couple of Dutch books with hand painted coatsof-arms that were made before the first printed Dutch heraldic handbook (H183, H196 and H145). Other stand-outs are genealogical manuscripts with hand painted coats-ofarms of important families, such as Van Halle (H182), Shrewsbury (H221), Beijeren van Schagen (H222) and Van Ceulen de Zaldivar (H77). And of course there are books. Often lavishly illustrated in woodcut, engraving or etching, heraldic books seem to have been a loved project for artists. As can be seen in the Wappen Und Stammbuch (1589) by Jost Amman (H148), heraldic designs challenged the artist to bring out the best of his skills. In his book Amman uses heraldic designs to showcase all the techniques that made him a masterful artist, resulting in a fascinating book. A personal favourite is the Frisia seu de viris rebusque Frisiae illustribus (1620) by Martinus Hamconius (H192), in which the lives of the great Frisian men are described and illustrated with a full page, full body portrait with their respective coat-of-arms. The artist made the portraits very lively and shows them in a narrative landscape with key elements of their lives in it, such as an ice-skating accident. Lastly a selection of prints was added to this catalogue. The prints are mostly governmental armorial charts of the cities and government of The Netherlands. Well known is

I Catalogue 40 / Heraldry

the Dutch semi-democratic municipal government that had its origin in the Golden Age and these charts are a testament to that. They show exactly what the makeup of the government was at the time of publication and the years before. Striking is the emphasis that is put on the oldness of these administrations, showing boldly in the title in which year the first council was formed. Clearly a handful of families dominated the charts throughout the decades, showing us that it was still only a small group of influential families that ran things in The Netherlands. Many items in the catalogue come from the collection of heraldic artist Daniel de Bruin, who passed away in 2010. He was well known for his ex-libris, which he made for collectors, but also designed them for his own use. Famous was his ability to combine traditional heraldic art with modern graphic designs and his daring work was exhibited worldwide. The books and manuscripts in this catalogue bear several of his personal exlibris. We hope that you will enjoy reading and studying this catalogue as much as we did in making it. Hugo Rijpma

GILLIS; MAXIMILIAN I; ANTWERP Patent of nobility, official copy, donated by Emperor Maximilian I (1459-1519) to Michiel Gillis (ca 1480-1550) citizen of Antwerp and secretary to Maximilian I. Holy Roman Empire, Innsbrück d.d. 7 April 1508 (copy d.d. 4 December 1575). Vellum charter, 280 x 490 mm. Latin text, manuscript, with a hand painted coloured coatof-arms. Copied by Henricus Rogge, notary for the council of Brabant. Somewhat grimed and some small holes, coat-of-arms worn at the folds. This very rare official copy of a patent of nobility was issued to Michiel Gillis, citizen of Antwerp (ca 1480-1550) who acted as secretary to the Habsburg Emperor Maximilian I (1459-1519). Michiel Gillis was the son of Peter Gillis (Gilies) who died in 1515. Michiel Gillis had a nephew named Jan Gillis who was pensioner of the city of Antwerp. His personal archive has been preserved in the Antwerp municipal archives. This document contains some additional information concerning Michiel Gillis, his uncle. Maximilian's wife, Mary of Burgundy, had inherited the vast Burgundian domains in France and the Low Countries upon her father's death in the Battle of Nancy on 5 January 1477. Before his coronation as the King of the Romans in 1486, Maximilian decided to secure this distant and extensive Burgundian inheritance to his family, the House of Habsburg, at all costs. The wedding contract between Maximilian and Mary stipulated that only the chidren of bride and groom had a right to inherit from their respective parent. Mary tried to bypass this rule with a promise to transfer territories as a gift in case of her death, but her plans were confounded. After Mary's tragic death in a riding accident on 27 March 1482 near the Wijnendale Castle, Maximilian's aim was now to secure the inheritance to one of his and Mary's children, Philip the Handsome. Some of the Netherlands provinces were hostile to Maximilian, and they signed a treaty with Louis XI in 1482 that forced Maximilian to give up Franche-Comté and Artois to the French crown. Maximilian continued to govern Mary's remaining inheritance in the name of Philip the Handsome. After the regency ended, Maximilian and Charles VIII of France exchanged these two territories for Burgundy and Picardy in the Treaty of Senlis (1493). Thus a large part of the Netherlands stayed in the Habsburg patrimony which explains the presence of Michiel Gillis at the court of Maximilian in Innsbrück. Reference no. 60913 (H140) € 1.325,00

Valladolid, Spain, 1544. Full vellum. 330 x 220 mm. Two pieces of rope attached to front cover to open and close it, but one piece partly missing. Writing in ink on front cover, small damage poorly repaired. Clumsily bound with a piece of green and pink rope. Pages slightly grimed in the margins but generally good. (18) pag. court judgement on vellum, manuscript, calligraphic, text. First page lavishly illustrated with a coat-of-arms and decorated in the margins with flowers and animals. With gold in the text. Comes with a manuscript letter d.d. 5 January 1547, 2 pag. on paper. This rare and beautifully executed court judgement comprises the patent of nobility for two brothers, Don Juan and Don Francisco PĂŠrez, from the town of Cogolludo in the province Guadalajara (Spain). It dates from 1544, in the reign of Emperor Charles V, King of Spain. It holds the sentence of the court of Valladolid which, besides having their properties reinstated, also confirms their recognition as old noble status (hidalguia) after hearing evidence from elders (persons mentioned as being more than 80 and more than 60 years old) and respected inhabitants of the city Cogolludo. Contained within is the instruction pertaining to the return of their estates. Of special interest is the magnificent miniature detail on this parchment with a loaded coat-of-arms with several specific Spanish heraldic elements. The brothers seem to have objected on the 7 of April 1543 to being

RZIKOWSKY VON DOBRZITZ, JOHANN WILHELM; KARL VI Patent of nobility donated by Emperor Karl VI (1685-1740) to Johann Wilhelm Rzikowsky von Dobritz (Dobrzitz). Holy Roman Empire, Vienna, d.d. 29 July 1729. Folio, full purple velvet, bound with yellow and gold wire. 340 x 275 mm. (20) pag. on vellum, slightly grimed in the margins. Manuscript, calligraphic text. One hand painted coat-of-arms in colour with the siege of a castle in the background. With the signature of Emperor Karl VI. No wax seal. This patent of nobility was issued in 1729 but states that the Rzikowsky family already recieved its title of ‘Freiherr’ from Leopold I, the father and predecessor of Karl VI, in 1675. The siege in the background of the coat-of-arms points to the military career of Rzikowsky and his family. At the time of writing of the patent, Rzikowsky was active as ‘Rittmeister’ in the Baron Seherischen Cuirassier Regiment and proved his chivalry in action. Rzikowsky eventually became ‘Generalfeldwachtmeister’ on 1 July 1752. He later served as a general in the Imperial army.

Philipp Paret served as a lieutenant in the Walloon Dragoon Regiment ('Wallonischen Dragoner Regiment') and earned his nobility and coatof-arms most likely in the Second Silesian War (1744-1745) for war efforts described in the charter to have taken place in Bohemia, Bavaria and other regions.

The patent of nobility allows Antwerpen Verbrugge to add ‘Von Freyhoff’ to his family name. Holy Roman Empire, Vienna, d.d. 22 November 1766. Full red linen with yellow silk ribbons, front cover discoloured, overall good condition. (20) pag. on vellum. Manuscript, calligraphic text and lavishly engraved decorations in the margins, with coats-of-arms in the margins of the first 4 pag. Has protective fly leafs between the pages. One full-page hand painted coloured and gold coat-of-arms with the family motto "tandem bona causa triumphant". On the last page the signature of empress Maria Theresia. One loose extra sheet outside the book containing a letter, handwritten in German, addressed to Antwerpen Verbrugge d.d. 21 March 1767. With imperial wax seal in mint condition, 140 mm. , in decorated embossed copper casing. The seal is attached to the book by the cord of the binding, which is made of copper and cloth wire. The copper has discoloured the red linen of the front cover. All in a metal case. This patent of nobility was donated by Roman empress Maria Theresia of Austria to Gijsbert Antwerpen Verbrugge (van Freyhoff) (1717-1777), who was active as "wechsler" (banker) in Amsterdam and was a Mennonite. He was son of a 'zeepsieder': soapmaker in Gouda. He married 'jonkvrouwe' Maria Hooft in 1741. They lived in Amsterdam and on an estate currently known as Gooilust in 's-Graveland. Antwerpen Verbrugge was closely associated to the Imperial court in Vienna through his banking firm Verbrugge & Goll. This firm provided funds to the imperial court since 1758. They started their activities for the imperial court when a previous engaged firm of the Amsterdam mayor Deutz was liquidated. He had provided funds based on the imperial quicksilver mines. These facts are explained in the patent of nobility and are confirmed by historic sources. According to the patent Antwerpen Verbrugge succeeded in liquidating the loans without any losses. Maria Theresia found herself forced to accept the services of Antwerpen Verbrugge again in 1765 and 1766 for two loans that the court direly needed. Both Johann Goll and Antwerpen Verbrugge were accepted into the nobility as token of appreciation of these services. Ever since the ties between both bankers, their firm and the imperial court became even closer. They were responsible for loans up to several million guilders. His associate Goll was infamous as a banker and was suspected of fraud and other criminal activities during his life.

Franz Karl served as aide-de-camps in the Kalnofischen Husar Regiment and was among other things active in the campaign in the Netherlands. Later on he became inspector in Nagybanien (also known in German as Frauenbach, currently in Romania). Ignaz Victor was a military man as well and served in the Graf Serbellonischen Cuirassier Regiment. Johann Adalbert served as Oberleutnant and distinguished himself in the Prussian War.

ROOPE HARRIS; GEORGE III, LEAKE, TOWNLEY Grant of arms donated by Stephen Martin Leake, Garter and Charles Townley, Clarenceux, Kings of Arms, to Roope Harris (1747-1821) of Bristol. Roope Harris became Roope Harris Roope afterwards. United Kingdom, d.d. 20 september 1771. Vellum charter, good condition. 330 x 430 mm. Copperplate hand engrossed, calligraphy, with a large hand coloured coat-of-arms. Two wax seals of the mentioned kings of arms, in perfect condition, in decorated tin cases, attached to the document by silk ribbons. The charter comes encased in a contemporary oblong leather case, decorated with embossed, gilt patterns, lined with decorated coloured paper, broken at the hinges and worn. This charter confirms the coat-of-arms of Roope to Roope Harris of Bristol, who took the nd name and the coat-of-arms of Roope on 22 July 1771. Roope Harris (1747-1821), son of Ambrose Harris, son of Nicholas Harris of Dittisham, inherited the Roope estate at Greenway on the river Dart from Margaret Deeble (Margaret' Deebles Will 1777), so long as he agreed to take on the surname of Roope, hence the name 'Roope Harris Roope'. Roope Harris is the link between two branches of the Roope family, the Roopes of Little Dartmouth, Devon and the Roopes of Oporto, Dittisham, Kingswear etc. Greenway was bought by Agatha Christie in 1938 as a summer house for her and her husband Max Mallowan. The house is now owned by the National Trust. Greenway was previously owned by The Gilberts who finally sold Greenway around 1700 to Thomas Martyn, about whom little is known, but through him the property descended to the Roopes, a family of successful Dartmouth merchants. By 1780 Roope Harris Roope was the owner. He had apparently been born in Massachusetts (USA) and later travelled widely on business whilst also having 15 children, 6 of them born at Greenway. In 1791 Roope sold Greenway to Edward Elton, a Bristol merchant venturer and MP (his family also owned Clevedon Court). Reference no. 61034 (H168) â‚Ź 2.067,00

John FitzGibbon, 1 Earl of Clare PC (Ireland) (c. 1749- 1802), later known as Earl of Clare or Lord Clare, was Attorney-General for Ireland in 1783, then Lord Chancellor of Ireland in 1789, in which capacity he was first promoted to the Irish peerage. He was a controversial figure in Irish history, being described as a Protestant hardliner, a staunch anti-Catholic, and an early supporter of a union with England (which finally happened shortly before his death). He is said to have been an early opponent of measures for Catholic political relief (meaning the removal of some or all legal disabilities against Catholics) in both Ireland and Great Britain, and may have been the first to suggest to George III that the King would violate his coronation oath if he consented to the admission of Catholics to Parliament. FitzGibbon was born near Donnybrook, Dublin, as the son of John FitzGibbon of Ballysheedy, County Limerick and his wife Isabella Grove, daughter of John Grove, of Ballyhimmock, County Cork. His father was born a Catholic but converted to the state religion in order to become a lawyer, and amassed a large fortune. Reference no. 61046 (H178) â‚Ź 10.070,00

The patent of nobility comes with four other th 18 century documents relating to the Voss family, one of which is the Wiener Zeitung of 16 January 1790 which relates the nobility received by Voss in 1789. This interesting patent of nobility was issued to (Luderus?) Georg Daniel Voss (later: Van Voss van Sinderen). This lawyer, Hofrath, Postmeister and mayor of Duisburg was also active as printmaker. His maternal grandfather (Abraham Georg(e) Luiscius, died Delft 1760) served as Prussian ambassador in The Hague. Voss received his nobility as a token of appreciation for the loyal military and civil service of his paternal and maternal family to the Holy Roman Empire.

In 1766 he was discharged with honor from this position for reasons of bad health. The patent also explains that his wife Maria Elisabeth van der Upwich is related to several noble families and owns two "Adlicher Güther", one is named as Sinderen in the Dukedom of Zutphen. The patent further states that Voss chose his domicile at Sinderen since 1769 (he lived in "Huis Sinderen", i.e. the castle of Sinderen was th demolished in the 19 century).

HOPTON, STRETTON GRANSOME; GEORGE III, HEARD, HARRISON Grant of arms donated by Isaac Heard, Garter, principal King of Arms and George Harrison, Clarenceux, King of Arms of the south east and west parts of England, to the reverend William Hopton (?-1841), heretofore known as William Parsons of Stretton Gransome in the county of Hereford, now city of Hereford clerk in order to grant him the arms belonging to the name of Hopton he took earlier in the year by Royal decree. British Empire, d.d. 1 August 1817. Vellum charter, good condition. 600 x 450 mm. Manuscript text and calligraphy, with 4 coloured coats-of-arms (three of the King and the officials and one of Hopton). Original 'signatures' (written names) and attached wax seals of both officials in decorated wooden (spane) casings. Encased in a made to fit oblong wooden case, with metal closing mechanism and lined with red linen, decorated in gold with GR initials and crowns. This lot comes with an original letter from George W. Marshall, Rouge Croix, from the College of Arms dated 1900 and the Royal licence (signed by Queen Victoria) adressed to Lieutenant-Colonel Hopton for a change of name and arms from John Dutton Hunt to Hopton. This charter explains that William Hopton, heretofore William Parsons, only surviving son of John Parsons MP of Kemerton Court county Gloucester, deceased by Deborah his wife who was the daughter of Richard Hopton of Canon Frome in Hereford and the aunt of Richard Cope Hopton also deceased, took the name of Hopton by Royal decree of 21 March 1817 in order to inherit the Canon Frome estate. It also relates to the impressive family history dating several centuries back. The Hoptons had lived at Canon Frome for several generations, the succession often being through the female line. The Canon Frome estate was one of the largest in the county and William was a typical ‘squarson'. He married twice (first to Mary Graves and second to Anna Poole), and his eldest grandson by the second marriage, Edward, married his cousin, Clare Ellen Trafford. A soldier who served in the Crimea, Indian Mutiny, and the Kaffir and Zulu Wars, Edward became a General and was knighted in 1900. He, and his son Edward after him, were Trustees of the Michaelchurch Estate, and Eliza Rawson bought them a house (at Cagebrook in the parish of Eaton Bishop?). It seems that Canon Frome Court is now inhabitated by a rural living community of adults and children. Kemerton Court (apparently the ancestral home of the Parsons family) still exists and in the village of Kemerton there is a two storey tower still known as "Parsons folly". Unusual is the grant of a crest "out of a Ducal Coronet (…) under the peculiar circumstances and the antiquity of the family" but "may not be made a precedent", as stated in the patent.

George Day Harrison (1872-1912) obtained a Royal licence which is included in this lot to change his name to Buckworth-Herne-Soame. The Harrison coat-of-arms had therefore to be changed into a combination of the Harrison and Buckworth-Herne-Soame coats-ofarm. This grant of arms officially changes the coat-of-arms. George Buckworth-HerneSoame was apparently (chief) engineer of the South Potteries Water Works Company in Staffordshire, although the grant of arms mentiones that he is lieutenant colonel of the Staffordshire Artillery Volunteers. The coat-of-arms bears the family motto: "de mieulx je pense en mieulx." The grant explains that Harrison lives in Radford House in the parish of Stone in de county of Stafford. He married Evelyn, the second daughter of Sir Charles Buckworth-Herne-Soame Baronet late of Sheen in the county of Surrey. Reference no. 60985 (H97) â‚Ź 1.325,00

FURNESS OF GRANTLY; GEORGE V Grant of arms donated by Alfred Scott-Galty, Garter King-of Arms, to Christopher Furness, first Baron Furness of Grantley (1852- 1912), who was a British businessman and liberal politician. British Empire, London, d.d. 6 September 1910. Vellum charter. Good condition. 600 x 520 mm. Manuscript, calligraphic text. With 4 hand coloured coats-of-arms (three of the King and Scott-Galty) and one of Furness. With the signature and attached wax seal of Scott-Galty in brass crowned box. In a made to fit oblong wooden case, with metal closing mechanism and lined with red linen, decorated in gold with GVR initials and crowns. Furness was born in West Hartlepool, Co. Durham. He started his career as a buyer in Thomas Furness and Company, wholesale provision merchants, a firm owned by his older brother Thomas, and became a partner two years later. Stock for the business had to be brought in by ship, and Christopher found that it would be cheaper to use their own vessels, rather than hire other peoples. Consequently, on his initiative, the firm bought several steam ships from local shipbuilder William Gray & Company in 1877. In 1882 Christopher Furness and Company was formed and the business was split into two. Thomas kept the provision merchants, while Christopher took charge of the shipping fleet. After seven years as a partner in the shipbuilding firm of Edward Withy and Company, Furness merged it with his own company, in 1891, to form Furness, Withy and Company. By a series of mergers, his firms became the main employers in Hartlepool, until they finally closed in the 1980s. Furness was also involved in politics, and was elected Member of Parliament for The Hartlepools at a by-election in 1891. He lost the seat in 1895, but was re-elected in 1900 general election, and served until his re-election in January 1910 was declared void after an electoral petition. He was knighted in 1895 and in 1910 he was raised to the peerage as the first Baron Furness, of Grantley in the West Riding of the County of Yorkshire. In 1909 he was made an Honorary Freeman of West Hartlepool. In 1876 Furness married Jane Annette Suggit. They had one son, Marmaduke, born in 1883. Christh topher Furness died on 10 November 1912, aged 60. He was succeeded in the barony by his son Marmaduke, who in 1918 was created Viscount Furness. With this charter certain alterations to the

The Maduro family is to date an important - Jewish- family in the Netherlands Antilles. The Maduro family was of Sephardic Jewish origin. It is fascinating to follow this branch of the Jewish Diaspora. Among many sources, particular insight comes from the works of Margalit Bejarano (the leading scholar of Cuba’s interwar Jewish community) and the late Latin American historian Robert M. Levine. Maduros around the world have also gathered the history of their lineage online. Along with many other Sephardim, the Maduros first went from Portugal to France and then, starting in the 1600s, to The Netherlands. In Amsterdam they joined the Levy family by marriage and the surname became Levy Maduro. In 1672 descendants went to the Dutch Antilles (the synagogue there is the oldest still in use in the Western Hemisphere) and from there to various other spots in Central America and the Caribbean.

Willem van Dam (1596- 1673) was a mennonite who moved in 1618 with his brother Peter to Holstein where he founded Friedrichstadt on the Eider. He was the son of Peter van Dam and Digna van Leemputte. Peter van Dam was a son of Pieter van Dam and Marie Verborch (also written as Verburgh). Digna van Leemputte was a daughter of Jan Jacobsz. van Leemputte and Catharina de Berges ten Essendelle (famous as Trijn van Leemput in Utrecht for demolishing the castle Vredenburgh in 1577). In 1626 after the death of stadhouder Maurits the political situation changed and the Van Dam brothers returned. In 1629 Willem became mayor of Amersfoort. When this city was besieged by Ernesto and his cousin Raimondo th Montecuccoli on the 13 of August 1629 Van Dam decided to surrender the city a day later. Van Dam was prosecuted and banished for life for this betrayal. The Staten of Utrecht changed that verdict in 1631. In 1635 he became mayor of Amersfoort again and would serve 11 times more in this capacity. In 1648 he became member of the Staten-Generaal of the Netherlands. In the disastrous year 1672 he fled with his second wife Johanna, daughter of Rombout Hogerbeets, to Leiden, where he would die a year later. His son Pieter van Dam became lawyer ("Advocaat" ) for the VOC and secretary to the "Heren XVII." Descendants of Van Dam married with Van Zegwaart, Graafland, Pit, Wttewael van Stoetwegen.

This first edition does not have the folding Hercules plate. Gerard Legh (?-1563) produced only one publication, of which this is the first edition (later editions 1568, 1572, 1576, 1591, 1597, and 1612). This indicates the wide popularity of the book, probably the th most read heraldic work in the 16 century. It is written in form of a dialogue between ´Gerarde the Herehaught´ and ´Legh the Caligat Knight.´ Richard Argall of the Inner Temple supplied a prefatory address and probably part of the latter passages of the book. In endeavouring to explain the art of heraldry, Legh is purposely obscure from fear of trenching on the official privileges of the College of Arms. The work supplies what appears to be a portrait of Legh himself in the fictitious character of 'Panther Herald'.

The woodcuts of the coats-of-arm are wonderfully detailed. Jost Amman (15391591) was a Swiss artist, celebrated chiefly for his woodcuts, done mainly for book illustrations. Amman was born in Zurich, the son of a professor of Classics and Logic. He was well-educated. Little of his personal history is known beyond the fact that he moved to Nuremberg in 1560, where he continued to reside until his death. He worked initially with Virgil Solis, then a leading producer of book illustrations. His productiveness was

97 Catalogue 40 / Heraldry

very remarkable, as may be gathered from the statement of one of his pupils, that the drawings he made during a period of four years would have filled a hay wagon. A large number of his original drawings are in the Berlin print room. About 1,500 prints are attributed to him. He was one of the last major producers of woodcuts for books, as during his career engravings were gradually taking over that role. Sometimes he included both a cutter's knife and a quill pen in his printed signature on prints, showing that he cut his own blocks, while most woodcut artists normally let a specialist Formschneider cut the block after his drawing. A series of engravings by Amman of the kings of France, with short biographies, appeared in Frankfurt in 1576. Famous are the Amman’s 115 woodcut plates for the Panoplia Omnium Liberalium Mechanicarum, a bible published in Frankfurt by Sigismund Feierabend. Amman's drawing is correct and spirited, and his delineation of the details of costume is precise and accurate. Reference no. 60925 (H148) ₏ 4.770,00

Illustrated with a folding engraving of the coronation of Charles, King of Naples and Sicily in 1265 by Cardinal Raoul de Chevriers and 10 full page engravings of coats-of-arms and woodcuts in the text. Some water staining in the first few pages. Claude-François Ménestrier (1631- 1705) was a French heraldist, a member of the Society of Jesus [Jesuit], and attendant of the royal court. Ménestrier was born in Lyon. He produced numerous books on heraldry, and was one of the greatest authorities on heraldry of his age. Ménestrier was professor at the colleges in Chambéry, Vienna, Grenoble, and Lyon. During 1669-70 he intended to travel to Germany and Italy, but he only reached Paris and lived for the rest of his life. From 1622 he was in close correspondence with Philipp Jakob Spener, the founder of the German scientific heraldry who refused the merely symbolic interpretation of arms. Ménestrier maintained that we can know the essence of heraldry only from the ancient sources, but he was also influenced by the heraldic view of his age. Thus, in the end his researches were fruitless. This attractive book is dedicated to Claude Joseph and Leonard Francois de Chevriers, two French noblemen. The 'epistre' contains a genealogy of their family. Reference no. 60923 (H146) € 371,00

Large family tree of the French royalty with all its branches, all relevant coats-of-arms including those of the provinces and regions comprising the Kingdom of France. Starting with Hugo Cap.

Louis de France, duke of Brittany, dauphin of France (1707-1712) was the second son of Louis, duke of Burgundy and princess Marie Adélaïde of Savoy. As a son of the eldest son of the Dauphin, he was styled a Son of France. Due to the deaths of his grandfather, Louis, le Grand Dauphin in 1711, and his father Louis, duke of Burgundy in 1712, during the reign of Louis XIV, he became heir to the throne of France and therefore Dauphin of France, for three weeks in 1712, until his death. His younger brother became the Dauphin and eventually succeeded the King as Louis XV in 1715. This copperengraving was therefore pruduced after his birth and before his death, so before 1712.
