185079037X 229 pages including bibliography and index. "Any friend of heraldry will eventually run into difficulties when trying to become acquainted with the customary heraldic practice of foreign countries. There is the problem of discovering which books to study and where to find them, and there is the frustrating experience of seeing one's efforts handicapped by language barriers. I have been collecting information about international heraldry for many years, with emphasis on its pictorial peculiarities and the peculiarities of customs, rules and styles, excepting those regions in the Balkans which underwent different trends of development during their occupation by the Turks... This book is the result. It is far from being encyclopaedic but should be of value to anyone wishing to gain a more international view of the subject. It should also serve as an introduction to heraldry for a newcomer to the field. Chapters include: Introduction; The Sheild; Charges; The Helm, Crest and Mantling; Blazon; Supporters; Augmentations; Differencing and Cadency; Marshalling of Arms; Burgher-Arms; Gentry, Untitled Continental Mobility, Knights and Baronets; Titled Nobility; Princes, Kings, Dukes and Emperors; Corporate Arms; Religious Orders of Chivalry; Heraldry in the Roman Catholic Church; Heraldry in the Church of England; Badges. Glossy colour illustrations throughout. Clean, bright and unmarked with very light wear. Excellent copy.
