This catalogue, covers some 300 works from 1697, when the Britannic standard was introduced, until the beginning of the twentieth century. The entries include black and white works of all marks and armorials and complete listings of provenance, exhibition and publication history. In addition, an introduction by author Ellenor M. Alcorn details the history of the collection and illuminates the significance of these beautiful objects.
