A great book for the student of heraldry and those interested in early baronial and municipal arms.The book is in casewrap-hardback with 534 pages and 164 illustrations reproduced by facsimile from the original book and is 6in wide x 9in tall (13.29cm wide x 22.23cm tall). ISBN: 978-1-326-47921-3.

In April 1903 'The Spectator' gave this review of the original publication: "It contains somewhere about three hundred coats-of-arms, or an intimation that no coat-of- arms exists, or, not infrequently, the suggestion of heraldic bearings that would suit the circumstances. The volume does not promise much interest to the reader; but it has more than one would think. There is no little genealogical and historical information in it ; there is much that the student of heraldry will prize. The authors, too, now and then indulge in a gentle jest at the errors, heraldic or other, with which they have been brought in contact in the course of their inquiries."

A Clean original facsimile of the original, not an OCR copy.

The book, part of The Armorial Register's Classic History and Heraldry Series, is in hardback with 534 pages and 164 black and white illustrations reproduced by facsimile from the original book and is 6in wide x 9in tall (13.29cm wide x 22.23cm tall).

[The companion edition to the above book "The Arms of The Royal and Parliamentary Burghs of Scotland" 1897 is at present being prepared and will be released soon.]
