Always a good addition... not only for its wealth of information but for the concise way in which it's presented, which allows for easy storage on an already cramped bookshelf.





While out of print, there are copies available of both the stand-alone publication and the issue of Canadian Journal of Arms Collecting in which it originally appeared (Vol. 13, No. 1).

Hi Jim,

I was hoping for our leading scotsman to come in on this one - thanks a lot, Sir Jim!
I sure appreciate seeing our most prominent scotsman commenting on this rarely thematized issue ...

Best as always,
Michael
