The History, Principles, and Practice of Heraldry

(Pocket)

Beskrivning:

Heraldry has been defined by one writer as the shorthand of history, and for the full appreciation of the meaning of countless devices in medieval illuminations, stained glass, on monuments and seals, etc., it is altogether indispensable. There are chapters on the value of heraldry to genealogist and historian, arms borne on shield, earliest devices of a structural origin, guiding rules and phraseology, blazoning of arms and animals used as charges, allusive and canting heraldry, accessory features and supporters, the use and nature of badges, mottos, heraldic furs, playing cards, and plenty more. Illustrated with 194 figures in text. This title is cited and recommended by Books for College Libraries.
