London: Blandford Press, The chapters walk the reader through the major elements of a blazon: The shield itself and its divisions and partitions, the charges, the helm and mantling, the crest and supporters, the various systems of differencing and cadency, and the marshalling of arms. But the author, a German-born artist of American citizenship living in Antwerp, has published a number of heraldic works in German, Dutch, and Danish, as well as English, and his interest in Continental armory continues here, with discussions of burgher-arms, both the titled and untitled nobility of numerous European countries, and the religious orders of chivalry in Malta, Switzerland, and the Netherlands.
Since most works on the subject in English show little interest in heraldry outside the British Isles, that inclusion alone makes this an important reference tool. But the author also points out the family relationships displayed in the similar arms of families with a joint history, the similarities between many municipal and regional arms based on historical parallels, and even the peculiarities of practice in the way helms are traditionally rendered in different countries.
Much incidental information on both British and Continental families also appears. For instance, the arms of the noble Pacchioni family of Bologna includes a modified version of the chief in the Angevin arms because the armiger was a supporter of the King of Naples and Sicily.
And the arms of Edward Irving of Kirkintilloch include a brisure of a second son of a third son of a second son. An excellent tool for both the genealogist and the heraldic artist. London: HMSO, Wagner, late Garter Principal King-of-Arms, was undoubtedly the most knowledgeable man in his profession in this century. This very detailed history of the origins and duties of the medieval herald, the court of chivalry, the often eccentric personalities of later heralds and their effects on the orders of knighthood Knights of the Garter very nearly became hereditary in the eighteenth century, for instance , and the problematic role of the herald in the twentieth century, is a surprisingly engrossing social history of Britain from a peculiar viewpoint.
Wagner also was noted for a certain drollery of style that may catch the reader off-guard.
Historic Heraldry of Britain. The College of Arms commissioned a series of modeled and painted panels and shields in connection with the New York World's Fair of , which were presented to the United States at the outbreak of the war. Most eventually went into storage at the Smithsonian until their resurrection in this volume on heraldic art.
Medieval Heraldry. Men-at-Arms series, 99 London: Osprey Publishing, Osprey is well known to students and enthusiasts of military history of all periods, as well as modelers and gamers, for its concisely written and heavily illustrated studies of wars, campaigns, individual battles, military units, arms and armor, and uniforms.
This volume is a bit of a departure. Where most books on heraldry concentrate on the theory and practice of the art itself, this one is more interested in the practical uses to which it was put by armored knights and their followers, both in battle and in the lists. This includes such topics as liveries, surcoats, banners, and horse trappers.
Also, where heraldry books written in English tend to consider English practice almost to the complete exclusion of the Continent, Wise knows that the institution of knighthood was much broader than a single country, and that the loyalties and interests of its members were more than merely national.
The first section lays out the origins and purpose of heraldry, including its spread beyond the nobility and the knights to the merchant class, and even lower. Then comes the shield, both as armor and as a canvas for display, and a short but accurate discussion of its divisions and the charges placed upon it again, including patterns and symbols that were common in France and Germany but seldom if ever seen in Britain.
A section on the livery and maintenance system includes the fashion for badges and the association of certain color combinations with certain families or ruling houses. Crests originally were actual three-dimensional constructions worn atop the helm at least, when "on parade" , and the introduction of mantling, scarves, and wreaths were an outgrowth of this.
Overall, this is an excellent introduction to the other side of heraldry. The Oxford Guide to Heraldry. NY: Oxford University Press, An excellent introduction to the field by the Somerset Herald. The emphasis, naturally, is on Britain, but Europe and the United States are included as well.

NY: Frederick Warner, Relatively nontechnical, considering the subject, it includes a sampling of many subordinate topics: The history of heraldry, definitions and specialized terminology, the visual art of armory, differencing and cadency, the crest and motto, royal heraldry and orders of knighthood, and "recent trends and developments.

The history of English arms proceeds from the golden dragon of the West Saxons through the leopards or lions of the Angevins as illustrated by a surviving seal of Eleanor of Aquitaine , and on to the Commonwealth which nevertheless included royal symbols.
Many seals of noble families are reproduced, including the Warennes, Mortimers, Montacutes, Bohuns, Hollands, Talbots, Staffords, and many others. The evolution of the royal arms is followed in great detail, as it encapsulates so much of the history of the nation. The authors also provide an excellent exposition on the development of the multilayered Union Flag, on trends in contemporary grants of arms including those to American citizens , and on civic and corporate heraldry, as well as giving limited attention to heraldry on the Continent.
Friar also has some pointed comments to make regarding overly ostentatious augmentation and the decline in heraldic taste.
