PREFACE

PREFACE.
HIS is not a Comic Song," was the saying of the late gifted Mr. Robson, in "Vilikins and his Dinah;" and the author, tho' scarcely hoping to rival that great artist in his mirth exciting qualities, may also say that this is not altogether a Comic Book. Motley is not the Herald's only wear, he has under-clothes, modesty forbids their particularisation, of sound Heraldic stuff; and the author has tried, not he hopes quite unsuccessfully, to impart some real information on a comparatively little known subject, and to explain, it may be in a not very dignified fashion, the meanings and uses of the chief Heraldic badges and signs. At the same time he hopes that the actual professors of the science will not be offended at the jingle of the cap and bells, and the jester's motley in connexion with the stately Tabard.
