BURKE'S GENERAL ARMORY OF ENGLAND, SCOTLAND, IRELAND AND WALES
The greatest collection of Coats of Arms for the families of England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales.
Description:  B. Burke 1265pp (1884)  The greatest collection of Arms, arranged alphabetically under surnames. A registry of Armorial Bearings for England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales from the earliest to the present (1884) time.
The most convenient source for British coats of arms is Burke's General Armory, produced by the Burke dynasty: John Burke (1787-1848), Sir (John) Bernard Burke (1814-92) who was Ulster King of Arms from 1854 to his death, and Peter Ashworth Burke (1864-1919). The General Armory went through several editions in the 19th century:
1st edition: General Armory of England, Scotland and Ireland, London: Ed. Churton, 1842. Revised 1843.
3d edition: Encyclopaedia of Heraldry, or General Armory of England, Scotland and Ireland, London, H.G.Bohn, 1844. Reprints in 1847 and 1851.
Enlarged edition: General Armory of England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales. London: Harrison and Sons, 1878. New editions (with supplements): 1883, 1884 (this was the last edition).
The last edition of Burke's (1884) contains 60,000 names. Burke's is the most easily accessible British armory. It should be noted, however, that sources are infrequently given, and that Burke's editors collected as many blazons as they could, regardless of origin or accuracy. It is therefore not to be taken as the final word on who is or was using which arms in Great Britain. The Burkes wrote extensively and produced a number of genealogical reference books. Include a full manual of heraldry.

FAIRBAIRN'S BOOK OF CRESTS OF THE FAMILIES OF GREAT BRITAIN AND IRELAND

Author: James Fairbairn.
Description: This book registers of all crests known to have been in use in Great Britain and Ireland is the definitive book in its field. The main part of this encyclopedic work is an alphabetical list of about 50,000 names associated with various crests. A crest is an ornament or device attached to a helmet or coronet and pictured above the shield in a coat-of-arms. You'll find a full description of each crest and a reference to the plate in which it is illustrated. Following this section is a list of 5,000 mottoes and the names of the families using them. There is also a key to the plates (which cross-indexes the names of the families assigned to each crest) and a dictionary of terms which serves as a glossary. The majority of the book is illustrated and consists of 314 full-page plates and detailed engravings of about 5,000 crests. Part 1 contains descriptions of crests in standard heraldic nomenclature arranged alphabetically by the name of their owner; mottos are also included. Part 2 contains engravings of a large proportion of the crests described. Thus given a surname one can find the crest and motto associated with various families of that name.

PAPWORTH'S ORDINARY OF BRITISH ARMORIALS

Author: John W. Papworth.
Description: For England, the ordinary which corresponds to Burke's General Armory is John Woody Papworth's Ordinary of British Armorials. Contains much the same information as Burke above, but it permits you to work backwards from a description of the arms. Thus it is an essential companion to Burke above. 
Compiled from a variety of sources, like Burke's General Armory it is useful by virtue of its volume; in common with Burke, Papworth does not state his source in many cases. The only work which enables coats of arms to be identified from a description or picture.

RIETSTAP, J.B. ARMORIAL GENERAL

Précédé d'un Dictionnaire des Termes de Blason. 2nd edition 1887,  2 volumes edition 1200 + 1328 pages.+ Dictionary of heraldry with images.

Heraldry books Rietstap Armorial General Heraldry books Rietstap Armorial General
Rietstap Armorial General  is a multi-volume work on the coats-of-arms of the world; it is both monumental and without equal, and is the most exhaustive undertaking of its kind. Needless to say the volumes are in French, but the information is stereotyped, and easily understood.
The Armorial General is the most authoritative work on the coats-of-arms in the world. The descriptions of the arms cover those of  more than 100,000 families, alphabetically arranged and accurately described. The work was compiled from hundreds of armorials and it contains an extensive glossary of terms. In addition to a full description of the arms, most entries identify the nationality of the arms bearer, his title, and the date his title was conferred. The basic text was established with the publication of the second edition, corrected and enlarged, of 1884-1887.
This most important reference work contains the blazons of thousands of Coats of Arms covering the whole world, arranged alphabetically under surnames. Rietstap is the most thorough armorial of European armory in existance.
