A Roll of Arms of Romantic and Historical Interest

great thinkers, great writers, great lovers,
great scoundrels

Exerpt from the Introduction:
"Armorial bearings, like medieval shop and tavern signs, have been relegated to the sidelines of visual analysis for historical purposes tending to make their mark in historical works only as footnotes to the main text or as novelties.  This neglect is not justified. Just one example should suffice to prove this; in Scotland in the late-sixteenth and throughout the seventeenth centuries portraits were often painted by craftsmen whose speciality was interior visual decoration and who specialised in heraldic and, increasingly, portrait painting as part of their overall oeuvre of painted craftswork  with the result that many Scottish portraits from this period are crudely finished but heraldically significant. "
