4.0 out of 5 stars Old edition 2 Mar 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This covers the basics of English heraldry. It is easy to read and authoritative. I would recommend it to anyone seeking the basics. However, don't bother to buy it as it is free from Amazon Kindle.

1.0 out of 5 stars Get the Kindle version, instead: it's free 18 Nov 2010
By C. Petit - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This version of the Handbook is completely without illustrations, as is the Kindle version. The difference is: the Kindle version is free. The actual value of an unillustrated handbook is considerably less than the $30+ asking price here, unless you happen to be well versed in reading blazons. Even then you would miss subtle points which could be gleaned from the illustrations, keeping its value low. If you stumble on it, the illustrated version is shown, in all its glory, and can be purchased (for less than $30,) but the version you can purchase here is a poor shadow. Caveat emptor!

4.0 out of 5 stars Boutell's a Treasure 4 Mar 2012
By donna - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Perhaps the most valuable aspect of this work is "The Grammar of Heraldry." It comprises descriptions and sketches of the elements of heraldic art suitable for the development of one's own coat of arms. From the information included herein, one can not only pick the appropriate elements, and blazon them properly, but also defend one's choices from the stand point of an acknowledged master in the field. This edition was "revised and enlarged" by the OTHER master of heraldry, A. C. Fox-Davies, making it as definitive a work as can be found today.
The fifth star was withheld on the grounds of its readability for a twenty-first century reader. It is a revision of a work written in the late nineteenth century, so the style clearly demonstrates the era's slower approach to life. However, if you "play" with heraldry (SCA, Rennies: Listen Up!) you should have the book on your shelf.
1.0 out of 5 stars Poor convertion 7 Dec 2013
By Mary's Notes - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a Google conversion and does not operate well in Kindle. The text is tiny and cannot be enlarged! Though it was cheap it is useless.

2.0 out of 5 stars The Handbook to English Heraldry 12 Jan 2013
By Brenda Richards - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I bought this as I thought it would be useful for genealogical research, but I found it complicated and hard to read. Was not what I expected from the write up.
