|Notices sur les familles illustres et titrÃ©es de la Pologne|
Seweryn, Comte Uruski
Nombreuses sont les familles dâ€™origines polonaises, habituÃ©es en France, et considÃ©rablement gÃªnÃ©es par lâ€™obstacle de la langue. Pour pallier cela, lâ€™ouvrage de 1862 que nous rÃ©Ã©ditons a le mÃ©rite dâ€™avoir Ã©tÃ© Ã©crit en franÃ§ais, langue internationale par excellence, Ã une Ã©poque ou la Pologne nâ€™existait plus en tant que nation. Pour toutes les familles titrÃ©es (Prince, Comte, Baronâ€¦) et toutes les familles nobles une notice trÃ¨s dÃ©veloppÃ©e est donnÃ©e, retraÃ§ant lâ€™historique de la famille, donnant lâ€™origine et la date dâ€™octroi (Ã©ventuel) des titres, les armoiriesâ€¦ Etude francaise la plus complÃ¨te sur la noblesse polonaise.
|LA DESCENDANCE DES BATTENBERG-MOUNTBATTEN|
En 1851, un prince allemand, Alexandre de Hesse brave sa famille en Ã©pousant morganatiquement une aristocrate polonaise. Naitront cinq enfants qui effaceront la "faute de leurs parents" en faisant des mariages prestigieux avec des membres de dynasties regnantes. Par ses mariages, la famille deviendra pratiquement l'Ã©quivalent d'une maison souveraine. Les descendants d'Alexandre se retrouvent en 2009 dans les familles souveraines ou regnantes de Grande-Bretagne, de Hanovre, de GrÃ¨ce, de Hesse, de Bade, de d'Espagne, de Serbie, du Luxembourg et dans de nombreuses familles de l'aristocratie europÃ©enne.
|Stemmario Fiorentino (Armorial Florentin)|
A concise but comprehensive introduction in Italian and English helps the reader to collocate the Armorial in its correct historical context; special attention is given to the history of heraldic decorative arts and manuscript and bibliographical sources. An index of over 1200 coats of arms is included. Attributed to Bernardo Benvenuti, prior of Santa Felicita in Florence and an antique dealer of the grand duke of Tuscany, Ferdinando II de' Medici who methodically and competently collated ancient Armorials and prioristi, this important Florentine Armorial numbered among its manuscript sources (many of which have long been lost) a certain Libro Antiquo dell'Arme del 1302, the year in which Dante was exiled. This in itself is sufficient to render the importance of this codex. Within its pages the reader will find the coats of arms of all the families of Florence and from the surrounding countryside from whom the priori of the local government were drawn in the period from 1282 and 1531; inked and painted, they number over 1200 and can be consulted here through their alphabetic index. This Armorial, which is currently conserved in a private collection in Paris, was probably purchased from the Museo privato della Casa Fiorentina Antica created by Elia Volpi in Florence in the historic Davanzati palazzo, the furnishings of which were dispersed at an auction in New York in 1916. Apart from its significant aesthetic value, this Armorial is important because it documents the source of each coat of arms: in many cases these are gravestones or artistic monuments which have long since disappeared and faded from living memory, but the documentation in the Armorial makes it possible to assign the coat of arms to its family. The reader can admire the coat of arms of Dante's maestro, Ser Brunetto Latini, who penned the Livre du TrÃ©sor in France, as well as those of other well-known names from the fields of Literature, the Arts, Science and world history, ranging from Amerigo Vespucci to Cavalcanti and Boccaccio, Machiavelli and Guicciardini, Taddeo Gaddi and Galileo Galilei. Side by side with the coats of arms of the historic nobility and of lesser known families the reader will find the crests of the various Arts, the government offices and the magistrates, and of the sestieri and quartieri of Florence and their standards
|Stemmario Bolognese (Armorial Bolognais)|
A concise but comprehensive introduction in Italian and English helps the reader to collocate the Armorial in its correct historical context; special attention is given to the history of heraldic decorative arts and manuscript and bibliographical sources. The introduction is followed by the paleographic transcription of the hand-written notes to the coats of arms of the city families, and by the 1891 index of the reproduced coats of arms. This 18th-century Armorial - once the property of Ghiselli and then of a branch of the Malvezzi family - is now in a private collection in Paris and is made up of several heraldic manuscripts. It represents a fundamental source of information for the civic and religious history of Bologna. The main 1891 coats of arms can be attributed to two main artists. They include: 454 coats of arms of the capitani del popolo and podestÃ (from 1258 to 1532); 188 coats of arms of the legates and pontifical governors (from 1327 to 1747); 32 coats of arms of bishops of Bologna (from 1154 to the early 18th century); 26 coats of arms of cardinals (18) and popes (8) from Bologna, all listed in chronological order; 97 coats of arms of families from the senatorial nobility(42 extinct and 55 still flourishing at the time of the publication); 862 coats of arms of city families (with very interesting hand-written information transcribed in the appendix); 15 coats of arms of the colleges. By other artists are the coats of arms (24) of people who governed the city in different periods, of the 30 Arts and Crafts - of which two versions are reproduced - and of the 45 spiritual companies. Still other two artists executed the coats of arms (34) of the chapters and religious institutions, and those (37) of the several chivalric orders, respectively. A final manuscript reproduces some fifteen heraldic monuments placed in the cloister of the Dominicans, with the relating coats of arms (19) and inscriptions. The appendix includes four heraldic plates attributed to Pasquali Alidosi, and one plate by an anonymous artist.
|Stemmario Trivulziano (The Trivulzian Armorial)|
The Stemmario Trivulziano dates back to the second half of the 15th century, and is attributed to Gian Antonio da Tradate, an artist by trade.

This prestigious edition is enhanced by the blazons of the well-known Swiss heraldic expert, Carlo Maspoli, who has also penned the introduction to the coats of arms and the deeds of the Visconti and the Sforza families, dukes of Milan.

MASPOLI Carlo et PALAZZI TRIVELLI Francesco
The Stemmario Bosisio, once known as the Scotti Armorial, now bears the name of the donator who willed it to the Historical Archives of the Dioceses of Como. This is a heraldic manuscript with watercolour illustrations that dates back to the second half of the 18th century. It documents 972 coats of arms of families and communities, mostly of the Lombardy region; particularly well represented are the region of Lake Como and the surrounding valleys (Valtellina, Valchiavenna, Val d'Intelvi, Valsassina), Brianza, and also the Canton Ticino and the Canton Grigioni. This prestigious edition is enhanced by the blazons of the well-known Swiss heraldic expert, Carlo Maspoli; the genealogist Francesco Palazzi Trivelli, archivist of the State Archives of Sondrio, has contributed valuable brief historical notes for many families.

Jacobi Wilhelmi Im-Hoff
This work, as rare as it is well known, of the genealogist Im-hoff is of particular interest to Italy; in fact, it illustrates the coats of arms and genealogies of 20 of the most famous of the Italian noble families: among the reigning families are the Cybo, dukes of Massa and princes of Carrara, the Farnese dukes of Parma and Piacenza, Pico duke of Mirandola and Concordia, and Medici, grand dukes of Tuscany and princes of Ottajano; but the volume also includes the Milanese Biraghi (who are also Piedmont in origin), Homodei and Trivulzio (Gallio Trivulzio), the Sfondrati of Cremona (the family of Pope Gregory XIV), the Ferrero of Masserano from the Piedmont, the Tuscan (counts) Guidi, Piccolomini, Salviati and Strozzi, the powerful and domineering Roman families Orsini and Colonna, with their numerous branches in the Kingdom of Naples, where flourished the Giudice family, princes of Cellamare and dukes of Giovinazzo (but of Genoese extraction), the Neapolitan Pignatelli and Gambacorta, the powerful Sanseverino, and the Ruffo of Calabria.
