Beasts in Heraldry

Heraldry is like a vast castle full of myriad secrets and interests, pleasures and distractions. Mary Angel has discovered and highlighted one of these in the most enchanting way. This is not only a book on heraldry; the coats shown are not actual, even though they are heraldically correct. Instead, this is a collection of delicate, romantic pictures devised and designed in such a way as to relate the creatures of nature to those of heraldry. This volume is valuable, as symbolic forms used in armour are too often studied in isolation. This is a new and interesting approach; it is also a beautiful book with information on each animal, and a brief description of the armour. The box included is sunned on each vertical side with a small slit at the top right. All else is as new. ; 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall
