Re: Blood and Kin

Dear Jeff,
Sorry to hear about your experiences with the Lyons Office, I must have been
asking the right questions over the years, and have found them very helpful,
mind you, they have not always had the answers to all of my questions, but I
suppose we have to be grateful for any help.
At the Study Centre, I have volume 1, and Volume 2 of NISBETS, System of
Heraldry, Speculative and Practical with the True Art of Blazon, dated 1816.
They are a tremendous wealth of information, to which I refer regularly,
both volumes are leather bound, in excellent condition, and approx 14" x 8".
Tell me Jeff, did he produce any other volumes, a friend tells me that,
there could be a Volume 3, and maybe more.

Kind Regards
Yours Aye
Ian of Noss Head

office was set up to be just that.
