The whole accompanied by a Dictionary of Terms, and Remarks, Historical and Explanatory.

“We class these books together (i.e. Clark and Elven), because they present united a body of popular information on the subject of Heraldry. The first has been long before the public; and the surest test of its merits is, that the volume has reached its present edition. The second puts forth pretensions of an humbler, but not less useful or interesting kind. It may be esteemed as a complete manual of domestic heraldry. The majority of English families, including even the countless tribes of the Johnsons, Thompsons, and Smiths, will find their chivalric emblenis, and armorial distinctions, accurately engraved in the volume.”- Atlas.
