Section: Vol.II: the Noble Families

Mr Jawid (of the City of St. Petersburg)

Artist: Michael Medvedev, GHA[R]

Traditional coat-of-arms of the old Lithuanian noble family (that is to say, of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania; more precisely, the family belonged to the Belarus nation) is remarkable for its old-fashionedly straightforward cruelty, more common in Hungarian armory. The arms are named also “Jawid” as they are unique and not shared, modo polonico, with any other families.
This bookplate is also by Michael Medvedev.
