George Digby Daunt  F.8042

Trophy Armorial dating from the 1820s. 


Paul Latcham's excellent book entitled Bookplates in the Trophy Style remains available from The Bookplate Society and contains a wealth of information. It is virtually comprehensive, although a few additional trophy plates have turned up, and we shall look forward to their appearance in The Bookplate Journal.

Concerning this Daunt bookplate, Latcham writes as follows:

Eared-shield armorial trophy by Green of Cork. The Daunts originated at Owlpen Manor in Gloucestershire and the arms here are Daunt quartering Owlpen. George Digby Daunt was born in 1783, a younger son of Thomas Daunt of Falalea, co. Cork, Ireland, whence most Daunts had long since migrated. He married in 1815 Helena, daughter of the Reverend Edward Synge Townsend, of Bridgemount, co. Cork. Daunt was an officer in the 97th or Queen’s Own Regiment of Foot until 1815 when he disappears from the army lists. One copy of this plate, engraved by Green of Cork, has an 1824 watermark. Green was a prolific engraver in the period 1810 to 1830. This is a mixed trophy with warlike weapons on one side and implements of agriculture on the other.

To which one may add that Daunt died in 1861.

Dimensions of paper: 86x65mm.

Condition: Average; some light staining.

In all cases please wait to be billed before making payment.
