Japanese Scroll with Original Painting of Samurai Heraldic Devices O-umajirush Kyuan
2 Japanese Scroll with Original Painting of Samurai Heraldic Devices O-umajirush Kyuan
Japan Box Very Good 
N.d., but late 19th century, or Meiji era, transcription of a 17th century scroll. 1, 950 cm long (64 feet). 27 cm tall. This transcription is a somewhat loose, but complete, adaptation of a six volume work. Here the heraldic figures, banners and marks are presented in two tiers, with some liberties taken in the ordering and the style. Textual prefaces from the original Kyuan were dropped. Some minor staining and a few small tears, neatly repaired, both issues exclusively at the beginning of the scroll. Otherwise the scroll is in fine shape. The blue cloth scroll box, with bone clasps, is sturdy and in very good condition.

Heraldry Manuscript, Logie, Edward (?)
5 Logie, Edward (?) Heraldry Manuscript
Wraps. Marbled paper on card. Very Good 
N.d., circa 1852. Oblong 4to. 26 by 37 cm. Ten leaves, or 18 pp., with thirty different watercolors of armorial banners. The images are extraordinarily bright and beautiful; these paintings were by an accomplished, confident hand. The imagery is of three basic types: squarish banners held up by stylized animals, long triangular-ish armorial pennants, and armorial rectangular paintings that are not shown as part of a flag or banner. The presentation is chronological based on monarchs, beginning with Edward III and running to Henry VIII and his wives, Anne and Jane. The name of the particular monarch associated with an image is written in ink with a neat hand. The dating is based on a watermark, and the artist, on a pencil inscription.
