Previous book and review

John Henry Parker, the father of James Parker, was also the editor and author of a previous book [Parker, J. H.; 1847; A Glossary of Terms Used in British heraldry]. James Parker, in the introduction of his book, writes about the innovations, updates and improvements he contemplates, which make it more a new book than a new edition of his father's.

A review and critics of this book can be readed in [Stock, E.; 1895; The Antiquary, Volume XXXI].

In some places it is written the name of Henry Gough as author of this book and, also, his father book, but I do not find within these books the author Henry Gough. The error is due to a later print of this book, see [Parker, J.; Gough, H.; 1966].

Bookplate and scanning process

The 6th of September of 2007, a copy of this book from the library of Harvard University was digitized by Google. This copy of the Harvard University has a bookplate with

  • a first text «Harvard College Library»,
  • the seal of Hardvard University with its coat of arms, and
  • a second text «From the bequest of Mary Osgood of Medford, Massachusetts».

This scanning of Google has errors mainly in the very first 8 pages, and its images are not well viewed in all digital reproductors, but this scanning was used for some digital editors for make new digital versions of this book, for example, [Parker, J.; 2010].

The last scanned page contains the loan record of this library, with stamps from the year 1976 to 2000.

Frontispiece and Oxford arms

The explanation of the arms and quarters of Richard Willoughby are at the pages 396, 397, 398 and 399, under the term «marshalling» arms.

On the page next to the frontispiece, under the full title of this book, there is an oval version of the coat of arms of the University of Oxford from the Schools Tower erected A.D. 1619, its blazon is «Azure, an open Book Argent, leathered Sable and Gules, garnished Or, charged with the motto Dominus Illuminatio Mea; between three open crowns Or, two and one».
