  Lord Crawford's Armorial
edited by Alex Maxwell Findlater  
   

This is a splendid example of a Scottish Armorial and dates from 1601. It is one of the most beautiful pieces of heraldic art painted in Scotland during the period when these armorials were produced, the 16th and 17th centuries. It used to be called the Armorial of Sir David Lyndsay of the Mount Secundus; it is in the Bibliotheca Lindesiana, the library of the earls of Crawford. It is an armorial of the King, James VI, his Queen, Anna of Denmark, his son, Prince Henry, and the peers and lairds of Scotland. Compared with earlier work it is finer, more elegant, more carefully painted; compared with later work it displays a wonderful fluidity of line, particularly in the supporters and charges from nature, in the lions of course, but also in the other beasts and birds.

It is to be published by the Heraldry Society of Scotland, with financial support from the St Andrews Fund for Scots Heraldry. The editor is Alex Maxwell Findlater, whose Aspilogia Scoticana was published by the Society in 2006. The facsimile will be reduced slightly in size and will omit the blank pages. Thus the volume will be the same height as other armorials published by the Society. The armorial itself is of some 140 folios. These will be accompanied by a full introduction, annotation of the arms and a biographical index of the persons included. The index will put these persons in context, noting their parents, wives and heirs as well as family relationships, so will be almost a Burke’s or Debrett’s of Scotland in the middle of James VI’s reign.
