Another New Heraldry Book

Well, no, not exactly.  It's a book, not about heraldry, but about heralds.  Specifically, The Herald in Late Medieval Europe.

With articles written by an international collection of authors, this volume "cover[s] a range of European regions and discuss[es] the diverse roles and experiences of heralds in the late Middle Ages."  And, in fact, a book like this is probably overdue.  I mean, there are lots of books about heraldry, but I can, I believe, count on the fingers of one had those which are about the heralds themselves, with a finger or two left over.  Well, one less finger left over now.

This book is available from Boydell & Brewer, and costs US$95.00 or £50.00. More information about the book, its authors, and links to order it, can be found at
