Product Description:
The fascinating art of heraldry, with its special rules and methods, its system of symbols denoting prominent families and institutions, and its display of pageantry, has intrigued people for centuries. Evidence of it exists throughout Europe on everything from stained glass to pub signs.
Lavishly illustrated with color and black and white plates, The Oxford Guide to Heraldry offers a delightful tour of the heart of medieval pagentry. The only guide to heraldry written entirely by Officers of Arms with full access to the College of Arms Library (which contains the most important heraldic records and manuscripts in the world), this beautiful, enriching volume covers the origins of heraldry, the composition of arms and their visual appearance, the use of arms as decoration, how and why arms are granted, and to whom, and much more. It also explains how coats of arms have differed from country to country, with informative sections on France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and other European nations, plus a complete chapter devoted to heraldry in America. This authoritative volume is an invaluable reference for anyone interested in genealogy, history, chivalry, or the decorative arts.

District tartans have a longer pedigree than clan tartans but, although probably better supported from documented sources than clan tartans, they have received less attention over the past two centuries. This work outlines the history of district tartans, with details of 56 from Scotland - linked by name with an area, region, city or town - and over 50 from other countries, illustrated in colour with notes on origin and design. The book answers many questions about tartan etiquette, describes the function of the Lyon Court and the role of the Scottish Tartans Society.
