Talk about A Guide to Heraldry

The great thing about this book is how all-encompassing it is. You'll find a little bit of history, in-depth discussions of the various components of a coat of arms, and some discussion about the various uses of heraldry. There are plenty of pictures, most in color. The pictures are of both actual coats of arms, as well as plenty of separate components. You'll find discussion of tinctures (colors) & furs, ordanaries & other divisions, and discussion of the various types of figures used in heraldry. You'll also find information about blazoning (describing a coat of arms in fancy heraldic speech) & differencing (alterations depending on whether you were female, the first or second son, etc.).

I can't think of anything this book doesn't cover that someone new to the study of heraldry would need - though I was already familiar with some of the material, so take that with a grain of salt. The binding should last for many years. I would definitely recommend this book.
I highly recommend this book. It is useful to those who are new to the art and science of heraldry as well as those already well-versed. Its compact size and hardcover backing make it perfect to use a quick, portable reference guide.
As one would expect from a guide on heraldry, the book is full of images and colors, covers everything from the origins of heraldry to heraldic accessories, and yet manages to portray all of it in a handy 'pocket format' rather than through a weighty hernia inducing tome. The author was a noted expert on heraldry in Germany and, judging from some of the sources quoted and samples provided in this book, I suspect there might have been a previous German edition or the present guide at least borrowed from some of his earlier German publications.
