A SUMPTUOUS ENGLISH ARMORIAL. The numbering of the arms, and the state of the binding, suggests that the volume once held perhaps an additional 31 coloured coats of arms. The arms themselves seem to date c.1600 (they include, for example, the Cliffords, Earl of Cumberland, who became extinct in 1605, as did the Blounts, Earls of Devonshire and Lords Mountjoy, the following year). The coats of arms seem, therefore, to pre-date the captions: certain of the captions refer to later events, such as the elevation of the Sheffield family as Earls of Mulgrave (1626) and of William Seymour to the title of Marquess of Hertford (1641), although the arms themselves do not have the higher-ranking coronets.
