The Art of Heraldry; an Encyclopedia of Armory.
Fox-Davies, Arthur Charles

Published by T.C. & E.C. Jack, 1904. Folio. Decorated cloth, pp. viii + 504; 153 plates, 106 coloured and more than 1135 engravings in the text. Neatly re-backed in a co-ordinated cloth, a little rubbed and slightly stained, with the original spine laid down on a hollow back. It is extremely solidly bound. There are five pages from another work tipped in as is an original book review from 1904 (inside back cover). A former owner was a member of The British Society of Master Glass Painters and there are a few very neat light pencil notes here and there. The book is supplied with a folder of other related cuttings, etc., found in the pages. This book was apparently produced in just 500 copies and has been reproduced three times. I can find no mention of plates in the 1968 edition. The 1976 edition contained all the plates but none in colour. The 1986 edition has only 129 plates. The huge full-page plates are the glory of this book. There are 106 in full colour, many heighted with gold and silver demonstrating the vibrant Art of Heraldry.
