Francis Nichols

The British compendium: or, Rudiments of honour. Containing the titles, descents, marriages, issue, posts, and seats, of all the present nobility of England; with their robes, and arms exactly engrav’d on 130 copper plates; being all entirely new, and different from what has been done in any former impression. Likewise, the institution, creation, and investiture, of all degrees of peerage; and of several orders of knighthood, viz. the garter, thistle, baronet, and knight-batchelor: and lastly of esquires and gentlemen. To which is added, the antiquity of arms, their use, signification in their bearers, and rules how to blazon them; with atchievements, whereby to know what branch of the family is dead: all demonstrated by several curious cuts, never before inserted.
