A New proposed book - A Celebration of Scottish Heraldry

Post by Martin Goldstraw » Sun May 22, 2011 3:56 pm

I just thought I would give you the heads up on our latest project. Now that we have got the International Register of Arms Volume One well underway we are proposing to work on a Book of Scottish Arms. We have yet to finalise details but below is our outline. Romilly Squire of Rubislaw is assisting us.

A |Celebration of Scottish Heraldry
In anticipation of the 340th anniversary of the Lyon King of Arms Act 1672 The Armorial Register Limited, publishers of Burke’s Peerage & Gentry International Register of Arms, is inviting the submission of digital photographic material for the publication of a fully illustrated prestigious book dedicated to the many practical ways in which Scottish Armigers of today enjoy and demonstrate their personal armorial bearings.

Whilst this book will be an armorial, it is not just an armorial; its main purpose is to illustrate practical usage of Scots Armory in the 21st century. If your arms are recorded in the Public Register of All Arms and Bearings in Scotland you are invited to submit photographs, along with as much detail as you wish, of any armorial item you have made use of be it your Letters Patent, library painting, crest badge, seal matrix, flag, cutlery, dirks, sporrans, engraved items ……… As a bare minimum we would request that you illustrate your entry with an original grant of arms or matriculation document (we would be happy to blank out addresses etc if you so wish). From our own collections we have put together a number of examples which we feel would be of interest to enthusiasts throughout the world and which would also benefit your favoured heraldic artists and craftsmen.

Participation in this project is free (although obviously there will be a cost associated with the purchase of the actual book if participants wish to acquire one). In the first instance please contact The Armorial Register at info@armorial-register.com with the information you would like to be included.

Regards,
Martin
