2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By M. A. Ramos VINE VOICE on March 22, 2008
Format: Hardcover
This is an excellent work of heraldry, covering a vast range of knowledge. Fox-Davies' provides in-depth analysis of the history behind charges used in heraldry, explains many famous devices in heraldry and dispels many common heraldic myths. Included are many figures and color plates that provide vivid examples of both elements and complete coats, and all are explained in detail. This is the book to get if you have an interest in heraldry.

Format: Hardcover
This is probably the most valuable source-book for British heraldry to have been published, covering nearly all aspects of the art in Britian and giving substantial coverage to continental European heraldry as well. Every serious heraldist should have a copy.
