Unbound copy of Mattheus Smallegange’s publication collecting the coat of arms of the region of Zeeland. Six pages of text and six colored plates ordered as follows: 1-4; five plates with coat of arms, plate entitled: ‘Zeeland Veredelt’; 5-6. Other two large plates concerning the city of Utrecht are included in the folder. Traces of the former binding still visible. One colored plate presents a couple of sketches in pencil on the outer margins. This publication is rare to find in such a complete state.
Together with the publication come two engravings by Hendrik Winter that were also used in: Wapenen der Steden & Oud Adelycke Geslachten in de Landen van Holland, Zeeland, Utrecht en Overyssel. S.l.: s.n., s.a. [ca. 1717]. All coat of arms are provided with a number, but the legend is missing here. This was probably printed loose in the first edition and therefore it could be attached to either side of the plates. Prints of the legend are known from 1717 and 1732, both published by Johannes Kanneman in Utrecht.
The provenance of this lot is unknown, but since the two Winter’s prints were found together with the publication the whole is sold as one lot.
Letterpress and etching hand-colored on paper; engraving on paper. All the plates are obtained from two sheets and then attached to each other from the verso. Unfolded sheets total: 580 x 495 mm; folded, total: 465 x 295 mm; some damages and tears along the margins, a damp stain at bottom of the publication, visible in some pages only. Winter’s prints present rubbing and some staining, in one of the two the central fold is not even; some of the colored plates with coat of arms are loose in the bottom margins where the two pages are joined. Overall in good condition, beautiful coloring.
