Calvet gives a reference to "Blue, Rosso & Oro" by Massabo Ricci et al (1998) which is a catalogue of heraldic devices in medieval MSS but it is not clear if there is a reproduction.



This is the catalogue of an exhibition at the Archivio di Stato held in 1998:

There are some reasonably priced copies available here:

...but, as you say, no guarantee that the book contains a relevant illustration.

It is catalogued at the Hathi Trust site but you cannot view it, only search for terms in it:

'Villeneuve' returns 1 hit, p. 101:

'Rosaire' 1 hit, p. 22:

Perhaps Adam can access a copy at the Glasgow Univ. library?

I have just found out the same image (exactly the same) is on Adam's site (bottom of the page): http://www.alchemywebsite.com/virtual_museum/rosarium_side_gallery_sources.html




I have tried enlarging the coat of arms with SmillaEnlarger but without success. I think that only a colour scan will shed any light on this matter.
