Copperplate 17th century arms for Inns of Court
This image is from a copperplate engraving, and shows part of a roll of arms from Richard Blome's Britannia, an atlas published in 1673. It features the coats of arms of people who contributed towards the completion of the work a starting with King Charles II. Each page includes 35 coats of arms, presented here in pairs. These two coats of arms are from folio (page) 23 of the work. In old English, an s appeared as a long s (which looks like an f'), while ss appeared as fs'. Com was an abbreviation for County'. A number is assigned to each benefactor. Here are the accompanying texts (followed by modernised English where appropriate): 795. Ye Atcheivement of ye Hon'ble Society of LINCOLNS Inn (The Achievement of the Honourable Society of Lincoln's Inn). 796. Ye Atcheivement of ye Hon'ble Society of GRAYS Inn (The Achievement of the Honourable Society of Gray's Inn)
