647 pp, 9 1/4" H. Profusely illlustrated with b&w drawings, photographs, colour plates. "(A) thorough explanation of the rules governing the establishment and use of coasts of arms which includes an extraordinarily detailed compendium of the individual elements and designs in the coats of arms of England and Scotland. Because every representation has a specific meaning, based on recognized historical interpretation, Fox-Davies has divided the book into chapters on such symbols as beasts, birds, trees, flowers, crests, crowns, coronets, badges, and mottoes. The inheritance pattern of each heraldic symbol is described and there is an explanation of what happens when one noble family intermarries with another and the coats of arms must be combined.." Very light browning to page margins and edges of text block, minor edge wear. Dust jacket has minor wrinkling at top/bottom of hinge and flap-folds, minor browning on inside edges.
