New, unread, pristine in every way. An introduction of the art of heraldry that disentangles the complex code which heraldic devices represent. The book examines the origins of the heraldic symbols and the rules that govern the continued existence of heraldry in Scotland - firmly adhered to and upheld with the weight of law. The complex designs, each speaking silently, the lineage of their holder, are miracles of compression, encoding information on family, status and history in brilliant form. This book enables everyone to crack the code and read the symbols, at the same time marveling at their color and vibrancy and at their survival, speaking to us as much as any other historic artifact of past ages and lives. Scotland's Heraldic Heritage: The Lion Rejoicing is illustrated in full-color and shows sculptured and painted panels, the royal arms, devices to ensure ownership and demonstrate lineage and alliances.; 104 pages
