First Apostolic Nuncio to Britain and one of the most prominent armorists of twentieth century ecclesiastical heraldry. He published five books on heraldry and was responsible for designing the coats of arms of four popes. He was also Grand Prior of the Sacred Military Constantinian Order of Saint George. A close friend of the Queen Mother, Elizabeth.
ALS - Autograph Letter Signed, one page, November 1951, as papal nuncio to Austria. Mentions Monsignor Ferrari of the Sanctuary of the Madonna del Guardia, Genova. Boldly penned in black fountain pen ink. Accompanied by a handsome 4"x6" watercolor giclee portrait of Archbishop Heim.
Why Heim was never made a cardinal is rather puzzling.
