Your enjoyment of this book will depend entirely on your personality and interests - if you're simply trying to learn about the facts of heraldry but do not have a particular interest in history and/or vintage writing, this book is worth having to skip through, and use for reference. But if you, like me, love and find not just interest, but inner solace in Victorian writing styles, if you love history, and if you find joy in old fashioned humor and the almost adorable rants of a very passionate person, read this thing cover to cover. I am currently experiencing a stressful time, and this book will be my constant companion, bringing me not just knowledge, but great peace, and happiness.
This was the first one I bought.
With over 600 pages and going over every single element, this book is absolutely thorough.
-And yes, it's MUCH more detailed than the results and explanations from Google images.
You will not need another book on heraldry after this one.
