Decorative Heraldry: A Practical Handbook of Its Artistic Treatment

Visit Website
Description Heraldry as a system has been copiously written about in a series of works extending from the 15th century until now and the subject has therefore been well examined from the scientific point of view. From its artistic side, on the other hand, it appears not to have attracted that amount of attention which the interesting and decorative character of the subject might have been expected to secure. Except for short incidental references in general works on heraldry and in papers read to certain learned and artistic societies, its decorative aspect has been treated as of comparatively minor importance. Many of those who have desired to practise the art have had to approach it anew by independent study and to re-discover by patient research the examples of good work on which to base their own an excellent method but susceptible of simplification.
