A collection of the descriptions of as many Scottish armorial seals as could be identified, both as armorial and as to whom they belonged, from the late 12th century through the 17th. The volume contains approximately 3000 armorial seals, arranged alphabetically by the surname of the owner. For each seal, the description contains the name and any offices of the owner, a description of the armorial bearings found on the seal, a transcription of the legend surrounding the seal, the size of the seal, the documents to which it is appended, and a listing of any other works in which the seal is found.
