Manuscript in French, extensive notes and figures of coats of arms in uniform hand, some tinted with color. Apparently this volume is one of a set, two or more not traced, of indexed terms on the subject of heraldry and decoration of coats of arms. Manuscript title: France, Paris: ‘chez l’auteur,’ 1857-1860. Labeled ‘Tome I,’ folio (270 x 200mm). Paginated to 363 (also noted by author on title). Extra-illustrated on endpapers with royal arms of France. Title written in red and black with quarterly arms of the author (1 and 4, three stars over a tree, and 2 and 3, an angel) who identifies himself as Léopold Rébora, possibly Réborci (?), ‘héraldiste archéologue’ or an ‘archeologist of heraldry.’ The author is principally interested in indexing those more rare forms of the heraldic art. Overall organized in double column with headings and figures only covering the letters ‘A’ and ‘B’ and ending on the term "Bastoigne," the end of the tome is dated June 28, 1860. 19th-century red decorative papers over boards backed in red leather (light edgewear otherwise a good artifactual piece). This is an impressive compilation of heraldic language including charming illustrations of the art of emblazoned families. The terms are valuable in the French language as they are the basis for heraldic description today. The heraldic terms are accompanied by somewhat lengthy descriptions, which were executed in careful consideration. This work is valuable for it recorded an extensive, early bibliography of works that were consulted for this heraldic dictionary. It is not uncommon for amateur genealogists and family historians to want to share their findings. Léopold Rébora, while otherwise lost to history, has done a wondrous job of carefully researching his manuscript work. His efforts were undertaken to increase this branch of knowledge dealing with the history and description in proper terms of armorial bearings and their accessories. N° de ref. de la librería D8459
