Print measures approximately 9 by 13 inches.

We are pleased to present a selection of hand colored ORIGINAL engravings from The ENGLISH PEERAGE, or a View of the Ancient & Present State of the English Nobility: to which is subjoined a Chronological account of Such Titles as have become Extinct from the Norman Conquest to the beginning of the Year 1790. These are a collection of fine & unusual engraved plates of over 200 illustrations of arms, drawn by Catton & engraved by F. Chesham (Moule 685). Charles Catton was the coach painter to King George III & a founding member of the Royal Academy.

Plates 1-6 measure approximately 9 by 11 3/4 inches. The rest of the prints measure approximately 9 1/4 by 13 inches. The paper is some of the thickest, soft white, high quality chain lined paper we have ever seen. The condition of the prints is excellent, with little foxing. They have been beautifully hand colored in England by one of the few remaining professional colorists whose specialty is heraldry. The charm of these prints is in the plethora of mythological & fanciful creatures depicted. Through these crests of the blue blooded of England parade a delightful array of griffons, mermen, sea gods, fork tongued dragons, lions & unicorns all encircling such mottos of yesteryear as “Virtue alone is Nobility”.
