Overview

This second edition of the present work offers descriptions of nearly two thousand coats of arms, with the name of the first of the family in America, the date of his arrival and place of settlement, and, in the majority of instances, the town or country whence he came. The plan of the work resembles in the main that of Burke's General Armory in England, except that the latter includes only the arms of persons of British ancestry, whereas this book goes farther, including the arms of those whose ancestors came from Continental Europe. Mr. Crozier asserts the descriptions of the arms, and the data, carefully collated and verified, have been inserted only when actual examination of the necessary records has shown the family to be entitled to the distinction. Softcover, (1904), repr. 2009, 2011, Alphabetical, Dictionary of Terms, 156 pp.
