The General Armory

The General Armory of England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales, Comprising a Registry of Armorial Bearings from the Earliest to the Present Time, Sir Bernard BURKE, Harrison, London, 1884

Good background information, *very* comprehensive list of family names (50,000+) and some interesting contemporary advertisements too! Generally good reproduction, some pages very slightly faded or skewed, fully text searchable but OCR accuracy only about 90% so some care needed.
