This book of English heraldry was completed ca. 1589. The manuscript belonged to the Spencer family, as known through inscriptions on the first few flyleaves, including the motto "Dieu defende Le Droit" (God defends the right). This motto has long been associated with the Spencer family of England, which is the family line of Princess Diana, as well as the Spencers who were among the founders of Virginia. The Spencer family’s heraldry is included in the manuscript, along with the coats of arms of numerous prominent British families, including the Hasting, Gray, Beuford, and Percye families. There is another similar book of English Heraldry in the British Library, Stowe MS 693, which was also completed at the end of the sixteenth century.

This is a 11 shot image stitched together to make one image. Once the image was stitched I made 2 more copies of it and adjusted the exposures to +1 and -1 stops in order to bring out more details in the extreme blacks and whites.

I just returned from a vacation and realized that I had taken these 11 shots not knowing if they would/could be stitched together much less make a usable image from them. As it turns out they came together quite nicely and I was able to add some punch to the image. Continue reading
