Cheshire Heraldry Publishes first book.

Cheshire Heraldry is pleased to announce the imminent publication of
CHESHIRE HERALDRY
THE VISITATIONS OF 1533 TO 1580
A4 Hardback full colour gloss cover, 278 inner pages printed throughout in full colour with 350 armorial illustrations.


CHESHIRE HERALDRY
THE VISITATIONS OF 1533 TO 1580

 This volume features 350 colour illustrations of the armorial bearings recorded at the Heralds' Visitations of Cheshire in the years 1533, 1566 and 1580 along with a fragment of the records of the Visitation of the City of Chester in 1591 as published in 1882 by the Harleian Society. The book published by the Harleian Society contains few illustrations and those that are included are in black and white.


Although the visitations contained a collection of pedigrees of families with the right to bear arms this work confines itself to their armorial bearings alone. The author has simply attempted to turn the written description of the arms (the blazon) into a coloured illustration for every relevant entry. 






ISBN 978-0-9568157-0-5
Price £39.99 plus Postage & Packing

It is anticipated that the book, which will be available on line, will be ready for delivery from Wednesday 9th February.
