Parker, J. H.; 1847

John Henry Parker, «A Glossary of Terms Used in British heraldry, with a chronological table illustrative of its rise and progress», 360 pages with pictures, printed by J. Shrimpton, Oxford, 1847.


Author

John Henry Parker (1806-1884), the author of this book among others, was an English archaeologist, publisher, writer on architecture, member of The Most Honourable Order of the Bath (CB), and father of James Parker (1832 or 1833–1912), editor and author of [Parker, J.; 1894; A Glossary of Terms Used in Heraldry], a renewed edition of this book. Can be read about the relationship between these two books of father and son in [Stock, E.; 1895; The Antiquary, Volume XXXI].

In some places it is written that its author is Henry Gough, but I do not find within this book the author Henry Gough. The error is due to a later print of this book, see [Parker, J.; Gough, H.; 1966].

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].
