Description - The Sutton Companion to Heraldry by Stephen Friar
An essential part of the fabric of our ancient churches, castles and houses, in documents, and on monuments and stained glass, heraldry represents a treasure house of information for both the historian and genealogist. However, it is an aspect of this area of research which is often avoided due to its apparent complexity and inaccessibility. Here Stephen Friar presents the subject in simple English, explaining its origins and significance in the lives of noble families, the interpretation of heraldic devices, and the symbols themselves. With over 100 photographs, line drawings, and colour illustrations, this volume provides a comprehensive introduction to the subject
