A Complete Guide to Heraldry

A belated thank you to genie Sheena Tait (@sheenatait) for tweeting a couple of days ago that the Internet Archive now hosts a copy of A. C. Fox-Davies' work A Complete Guide to Heraldry. This is a scan of the original edition from 1909, and provides a comprehensive overview of heraldry across England and Scotland.

The book is part of the required reading list for students on the University of Strathclyde postgraduate diploma genealogy course, and I seem to remember it being quite pricey when I purchased a copy, so this may save you a bob or two. I think it may also be on the Dundee course booklist also, so likewise!

The book can be read online or can be downloaded in PDF format (114.8MB) or for Kindle and other formats. To access the work visit

Thanks again Sheena,
