A Grammar of English Heraldry

from the manufacturer

This little volume was first published in the series of Cambridge Manuals of Science and Literature in 1913. This 1953 reissue was lightly revised and put in a new format by Anthony Wagner, Richmond Herald. One new block and a glossary of terms were added, and the last chapter of suggested further reading was rewritten. The scantness of the revision required is testament to its quality as an introduction to a subject others had made obscure. It begins with the definition and origin of heraldry, then explains the terms and devices - the grammar of heraldry - and shows how individuals and families marshalled and differenced their arms. There are two chapters on lozenges, roundels and banners of arms, and crests, badges, punning arms and supporters. There follows a chronological account of the growth and decay of heraldry in England. In a concluding chapter the whole question of nomenclature is treated with good sense.
