Format: Paperback
This book is an excellent introduction to heraldry as it existed in the middle ages and renaissance. It also traces the evolution of heraldry through the Victorian period.
This book is an introduction to heraldry and is neither a roll of arms nor a heraldic dictionary. It does an admirable job of introducing the reader to the structure of British heraldry. While not containing an exhaustive collection of beasts and monsters such as found in a heraldic dictionary, it doex contain a chapter on "blazon" which is the technical language used to describe coats of arms. This chapter uses many diagrams to illustrate such things as different ways to divide up a shield, basic geometric forms placed on the shield, how the arms of related people differ, and other common elements of British armory. Other chapters abound with drawings and photographs of how heraldry was used in medieval Britain.
This book is pretty much a "must have" for the beginning student of heraldry.
