PHILLIPPS, Thomas. ~ Heralds Visitation Disclaimers. [London: Rudolph Appel], 1854.
Small folio (340 × 205 mm), pp. , 76. Letterpress title, the remainder a zincograph facsimile of manuscript on bluish paper. Some spotting. Original Middle Hill boards, edges somewhat worn. Later cloth backed.
A good example of one of Phillipps’s anastatically-printed facsimiles, in this case a copy of his own transcripts from the records of Herald’s seventeenth-century Visitations and their disqualifications of arms born by gentlemen without authority. Phillipps as a printer and patron of lithographic printing has been extensively studied and discussed by Michael Twyman in Early Lithographed Books (1990). Holzenberg, The Middle Hill Press, 88.
