ENGLAND:: AN INTRODUCTION TO HERALDRY - HUGH CLARK 1829. CD-WIN/MAC
The study of heraldry has been regarded by many as unprofitable, dry and unentertaining. It shouldn't be viewed in this light, as it really is not only an noble and interesting science, but absolutely essential to the antiquarian or historian, and more particularly to those who seek to obtain correct information regarding the history of their own country, where to find the records of those noble and patriotic deeds, the story of which has been handed down from generation to generation by those symbolic marks of honour and distinction which this work is intended to explain and illustrate.
This is a excellent and informative introduction to the fascinating subject of heraldry. Although originally published back in 1829, the information is still very relevant for all wishing to learn about heraldry.
