Book Description
Full title: A Display of Heraldry: Manifesting a more easie access for the Knowledge thereof than hath been hitherto published by any, through the benefit of Method; Whereunto it is now reduced by the study and Industry of John Guillim; Late Pursuivant at Arms. Bound with Analogia Honorum, or a treatise of honour and nobility, according to the laws and customs of England. "The Fifth Edition, much enlarged with great variety of Bearings. To Which is added a Treatise of Honour, Military and Civil, According to the Laws and Customs of England, collected out of the most Authentick Authors, both Ancient and Modern by Capt. John Logan." A very nice copy - recently bound in quarter calf with burgundy label and marbled boards. Recent end papers. The rest of the book is original and complete. This is an ex-library copy, but the stamps are not too disfiguring. A stamp and a couple of location records to the title page. Otherwise some small stamps to the verso of plates. A few of the pages have minor nicking to the edges - but well away from the text. Slight browning to the pages. Overall though, a good clean copy, with nice clear and well pressed engravings in a flawless binding. [xiv], 1-317, [ix]. [ii], 3-181, [ix]. pp + plates and engraved portraits.
