The ultimate image source book on the unique crests used in heraldry featuring 4424 designs.
An authoritative and complete array of images - twelve per page - of the huge selection of crests adopted as heraldic devices. This adds up to a remarkable collection of motifs, including lions, tigers, dogs, foxes, bears, dragons, bulls, the centaur, knights in action, the phoenix, the dove, stags, sheep, crowns, feathers, fleur de lys
, roses, weapons, hearts, helmets and mitres, mailed fists, crosses, hands grasping an array of objects, hourglasses and the world. These are small images (one or two inches high on average), highly detailed and covering virtually all romantic, mythical and heraldic subjects.
This is a partial reproduction of Vol 2 of Fairbairn's Book of Crests of Great Britain and Ireland
published in 1892. Detailed, intricate and classic copyright free images on the subject. Cover design gives an excellent idea of the graphic style throughout. Illustrations:
