  The Dublin Armorial
edited by Leslie Hodgson, Dipl. Arch., FSA Scot.  
   

The Heraldry Society of Scotland is pleased to announce the publication of The Dublin Armorial of Scottish Nobility, with only 500 copies having been printed. 

Jet-propelled serpents, unkempt men wearing body stockings and in need of a course in the gymnasium, stags with Azure antlers, lions salient, a menagerie of griffins, unicorns and various other animals including varieties of dogs and birds, coats of arms on starched shirts, and pleated and starched mantling -- all these interesting features can be found within this armorial.  

The book consists of the digital images of an armorial, of circa 1592/3, of Scottish Kings, their Queens, Scottish Peers and others, prepared in the Office of Ulster King of Arms in Dublin, Ireland.  The armorial was retained by the Office of the Chief Herald of Ireland and is now preserved in the National Library of Ireland. 

An introduction gives an overview regarding the heraldic authorities of Ireland England and Scotland of the period, followed the Royal Achievement of the King of Scots, six pages of Royalty (31 shields), twenty-four Earls, twenty-seven Lords, three western seaboard Clan Chiefs and one gentleman  -  a total of fifty-five achievements, after the Kings and Queens.  As well as a full description of each achievement of arms, there is an heraldic history of each achievement, up to the compilation of the manuscript, together with biographical notes on each of the contemporary holders.  

The volume is A4-size, 184 pages, bound in blue simulated leather, with the title gold-foil blocked on the front cover and spine.  The coats of arms of the Society and of the Office of the Chief Herald of Ireland are also shown in gold on the front cover.
