The Arms of the Members are depicted together with spouses, children and grandchildren, illustrating the manner in which Scottish Heraldry recognizes these relationships. The Arms of Honorary Members are included, many of whom are Clan Chiefs, and illustrate the connection between Chiefs and the Armigers in heraldic terms. The introduction, by the Lord Lyon, addresses both historical and practical matters of Heraldry under Scottish law, including how to apply for a Coat of Arms at the Court of Lord Lyon.
Students of History, Heraldry and Art will find this book a useful reference work.
