The Manual of Heraldry by Sir Francis J. Grant - 19.95
This is a pocket-size book of reference which fully encompasses the entire range of heraldry. In addition to the outstanding dictionary of terms, it contains chapters on the origin of coat armor, the right to bear arms, differencing and marshalling of arms, and the order of precedence, the whole copiously illustrated with 350 text figures.
This manual will be of service to the student as well as the general reader who desires to acquire some knowledge of the subject which has been justly called "the shorthand of history."
