Ref: 'Siebmacher's Wappen-Buch'

Published in 1605 by Johann Ambrosius Siebmacher (1561 – 23 March 1611).

Siebmacher was a German heraldic artist, copper plate engraver, etcher and publisher from Nuremberg. His works became an important source of heraldry of the German-speaking regions. The book represents the contemporary heraldry used during the final two centuries of the Holy Roman Empire, comfortably overlapping the date time of the Armorial panel.
