Historic Devices, Badges and
First published in 1870
Palliser. This delightful book, abundantly illustrated,
reviews the historic badges and devise of many families and
organisations and includes a table in the back listing the
main devices and mottoes. Devices and badges form a branch
of heraldic study rarely appreciated and the author offers
her opinions on the origins of these symbols along with
archaeological, mythical and historical information. The
book is in three parts with part one dealing with devices,
part two deals with badges and part three deals with "War
Cries,". This topic is an unusual addition to the standard
topics found in heraldry books.
