I now have possession of the further treasure trove of heraldic sources.

A brand-new volume IV of the Lexicon of Greek Personal Names. $75 (it's
$300 new).  Comes complete at no extra charge with two boxes of scrap
paper that look suspiciously like volumes I and IIIa of the same magnum

Le Biccherne, Rome, 1984. $50 (out-of-print-- found a sale of a used
copy in January for $100 plus shipping from UK).  Coffee-table type book
featuring the artwork from manuscript boxes at the former Sienese
Treasury.  A familiar design motif is family coats of arms, which the
editors have helpfully collated and blazoned as an appendix to the book
(in Italiano, of course).  A wealth of period heraldic art, plus Italian
dress & decoration.  I think Zenobia has the only other copy in the CoA.

Reaney, Origins of English Surnames
