I received a decent used copy of Boutell’s Heraldry, 1977 edition, in the mail. I mistakenly thought that I ordered the 1983 edition. Nevertheless, I was wondering if someone could please enlighten me on the major differences between the two editions.
Eventually, I plan to obtain the 1983 edition. In the meantime, however, I will enjoy the 1977 edition.
I look forward to hearing about your assessment as to the differences when you do acquire both Mark.
