Edité par London: Printed by S.Roycroft for R.Blome; and are sold by Francis Tyton, Henry Brome, Thomas Basset, Richard Chiswell, John Wright, and Thomas Sawbridge, 1678.  These comprehensive, detailed descriptions of hundreds of heraldic arms were written by John Guillim (or Gwillim, 1565-1621), an officer of arms at the College of Arms, London. Some historians have attributed the Display to a clergyman named John Barkham while the Analogia Honorum is said to have been written by Richard Blome some of these certainly are signed by Blome  According to Dugdale " John Guillim, the celebrated herald, was born about the year 1565. The early part of his education was received at the grammar school, in this city, from which he was removed in 1581, to Oxford. When he had left the university, he was appointed Portsmouth pursuivant of arms in the London college. In 1610, he published his Display of Heraldry, which still retains its original esteem. He died in 1621."Most of these are from the second part of the Honor Civil and will be listed by title with hopefully the pics clear enough to read details. . . if not yell/email etc
