Editorial: Boydell & Brewer Ltd
Año de publicación: 2009
Condición del libro: Brand new
Heraldic badges occur in a wide variety of contexts - costume, furnishings, armour, warfare, tournaments, seals, flags, plate and monuments. However, despite their importance, and although many illustrations and descriptions survi ve from the late fifteenth century onwards, they have usually been treated as an incidental part of heraldry. This monumental work therefore fills a serious gap in the literature of heraldry, providing a comprehensive overview of the subject from the fourteenth to the seventeenth century. The first volume discusses the nature and use of heraldic badges, and our sources of information, while the second is a dictionary of heraldic badges, divided in to two separate parts covering royal and non-royal badges. This is followed by ordinaries of heraldic badges and livery colours in the third volume. There are also extracts from unpublished records, a bibliography and full indexes . Overall, this is an indispensable resource for anyone studying the visual inheritance of the English past. Published for the Society of Antiquaries. N° de ref. de la librería 7156
