[ANSTHRLD] Books (Was: Coronation Reminder)

In addition to online book sites and auction sites, check out your local
Half-Price Books. Many times I’ve seen copies of Reaney and Wilson float
through there, as well as excellent heraldic books (J.P. Brook-Little’s An
Heraldic Alphabet). It’s worth a in the Genealogy section every time you pop


Also, don’t forget the resources at the medieval names archive
(http://www.panix.com/~mittle/names), and on the SCA website
(http://www.sca.org/heraldry/laurel/names.html) (I think the SCA link might
be wrong. My browser’s acting up)


Yours in service,

I think that some of the boxes still have those labels, but the contents may
have changed.  Since we have an Archivist, we have a place to put some of

Yes, I will definitely need your help - thanks Mari!


A good way to get started on a library is to do a couple of things.  First,
make sure that you have a copy of the no photocopy list handy.   Second,
read the ILoIs and LoIs just to see what books keep coming up over and over.
If you see an author cited with no reference to a book, check the no
photocopy list and chances are, it is listed.  Third, look at the
submissions history from your group on the HST and see what sorts of names
have been coming out of your area.  Sometimes, some groups lean towards a
particular culture while others are all over the place.  Armed with that,
you should be able to figure out where to invest the cash for the most bang
for your buck.

While I haven't been book shopping online in a bit, I know that there is
more than one auction site for books.  Check them often.  Also, make sure
that you check out which edition you are bidding on.  That can matter.
Happy shopping!

Lady Druinne,


Will you (or someone else reading this) be able to bring a newer, revised,
checklist of books or indexes that a newer Herald should be aware of for
their use?

Sounds like the list of catagory one of the 4 would be a nice thing.

All of the books will be there.  In fact, I am using Coronation as a time
for figuring out which books are going where and to whom.

Oh what fun....

At this point, it's looking like I'll be able to be at Coronation and 
should be available to help out at the consultation table.

So, my question is: what books do I need to bring?  I'm catching a ride and
will have limited space, so I can't bring anywhere near my whole library. 

If the Armillary library and the Asterisk library will be there (does
anyone know if they will be?), then I should only need to bring some of the
odder sources I have.  If other folks are bringing some books, that may 
mean fewer sources I need to bring.  At minimum, I expect to bring my
laptop for annals searches and maybe a couple of the Irish books I have.
What books are folks planning on bringing?
