Possibilities for Identification: 
This is either the stamp of the recipient of the prize book or possibly that of the donor. Fairbairn offers 49 possible owners for the crest, while for the motto Fairbairn gives 32 possibilities, Burke’s General armory a further 17. However, none of these gives the crest and motto together. For the motto the closest is that for Hunter of Burnside, (“Spero”) and for Daunt of Owlpen Manor Gloucestershire is “Vigilo et spero”.
