This antiquarian book contains a detailed treatise on English heraldry, with information on its history, development, and popularity. Heraldry is the profession, study, or art of creating, granting, and blazoning arms and ruling on questions of rank or protocol, as exercised by an officer of the army; and also comprises the practice of designing, displaying, describing, and recording coats of arms and heraldic badges. Illustrated by nine plates and nearly three hundred designs, this volume is a comprehensive treatment of the subject that will greatly appeal to those with an interest in heraldry. The chapters of this volume include: 'The Origin of Armory', 'The Status and the Meaning of a Coat of Arms in Great Britain', 'The Heralds and Officers of Arms', 'Heraldic Brasses', 'The Component Parts of an Achievement', 'The Shield', 'The Field of a Shield and the Heraldic Tinctures', 'The Rules of Blazon', et cetera.
