Publisher’s Synopsis

Though heraldry's unfamiliar terminology can tend to discourage people from exploring this fascinating subject, it is essential for the precise description of a coat of arms -and is soon learned with a little practice. This book provides a gentle introduction, explaining each term and principle with illustrations and text allowing the reader to understand the components of a coat of arms and the rules that govern their arrangement. It reveals heraldry as an intriguing study in its own right and one relevant to genealogy and a range of other subjects.
