EDMONDSON FOLIO HERALDRY ENGRAVING WILLIAM STOURTON BARON 1700’S #2426

 

DESCRIPTION

This 18th century heraldry copperplate engraving features the coat of arms for The Right Honourable William Stourton, Baron Stourton. On beautiful hand laid paper with a J. Whatman watermark, the engraving is from Joseph Edmondson’s Baronagium Genealogium, or the Pedigrees of the English Peers deduced from earliest times…, published London, 1764-84 in five magnificent folio volumes. A supplementary sixth volume was issued later.

This work is one of the most beautifully illustrated and comprehensive records left by a herald of the 18th century. Joseph Edmondson apprenticed first as a barber but soonabandoned this trade to become a coach painter. His fine artistic talent for emblazoning coats of armor on carriages soon developed for him a busy and exclusive clientele among the English nobility. This work led him to a serious study of heraldry and genealogy. In 1764, the College of Arms named him Mowbray herald extraordinary, an enviable honor.

His “Baronagium” was a task of infinite labor and more than 300 copperplate engravings were printed on the finest quality hand-made paper. Some of Europe’s finest artists were hired to engrave these coats of arms of notable personages of England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland.

This beautiful engraving has the family motto, “Loyal Je Serai Durans Ma Vie,” or “I Will Be Loyal As Long As I Live.” On the crest is a friar holding a crpss and the side supporters are two hounds. The beautiful hand coloring has been added by a professional colorist and all the colors are true to the specifications for the William Stourton, Baron Stourton coat of arms.


CONDITION AND SIZE

Condition is good with a little light soiling. There is normal age toning and evidence of the original book binding is on the left side. There is a strong plate mark and the paper is a soft cream color which has yellowed somewhat reflecting the age of the engraving. The hand coloring is very beautiful. Overall size is approximately 11 ” x 18 ”. This magnificent engraving is not only very decorative, it is a tribute to the William Stourton family. Of very special significance is the inclusion of the original lineage chart pages.
