3000 rheinisch – westfälische Wappen

archivierte Franz Kellerhoff ( 1845 – 1894 ), zuletzt Landgerichtsdirektor in Aaachen, in zwei handlichen Halblederbänden, die am Mittwoch, dem 15. Februar, bei Christie`s in Amsterdam versteigert werden.
Franz Kellerhoff scheint zeitlebens Wappen aus Urkunden, von Bauten, Grabsteinen usw. „gesammelt“ und in seinen Büchern mittels z. T. farbiger Zeichnungen festgehalten und mit genealogischen Anmerkungen versehen zu haben.
Ein Band enthält Wappenzeichnungen und -beschreibungen in alphabetischer Ordnung, der zweite Band enthält Wappenzeich nungen und – beschreibungen, die nach Wappenmotiven („Bildern“) geordnet sind, so daß dadurch das Auffinden noch nicht zugeordneter Wappen möglich wird, hierdurch ist dieser Band für die Forschung besonders hilfreich.

Provenance Franz Kellerhoff, Gerichtsassessor in Paderborn (1845-1894) and Landsgerichtsdirektor in Aachen (1872-1894)

Lot Notes These two notebooks represent a genealogical treasure trove for coat- of-arms. Franz Kellerhoff painstakingly assembled and noted down the information on this subject which he could find in graveyards, on monuments and documents during his lifetime. The present two books are the result of this lifelong passion, the books contain circa 3000 drawings, carefully ordened in alphabetical order (vol 2) and iconographical order (vol 1). Especially the latter is a unique mine of information for finding the family name to match a coat-of-arms.
The lacquer seal collection of Franz Kellerhoff was sold: Christie’s Amsterdam, 20 September 2005, lot 20.
