INTRODUCTION. The first article in this collection, is offered rather for the instruction of ordinary folk who wish to know something about the history of the royal arms than for the consideration of advanced students of armory.

It is not claimed for it that it contains anything, that is new, or indeed anything that cannot be gleaned with a little trouble from printed books and a study of armoriat seats. It is hoped, however, that it may be found to set forth the reasons. of the changes that have been made from time to time in the arms of the sovereigns of England at somewhat greater detail than in some of the handbooks on heraldry.

To that extent it may perhaps advance some slight pretensions to originality. The drawings af shields which illustrate it are by the writer. The paper on the Kings Beasts at Hampton Court is a plain and matter of fact statement of the most important piece of heraldic restoration that has been attempted in this country in recent years.

This account of it owes such archological value as it possesses to the facts that I have borrowed from an article On the Stone Bridge at Hampton Court by Mr. C. R. Peers, F.S.A., read before the Society in 1910 and published in Archaeologia, second series, volume xii. I have to thank Messrs. Farmer and Brindley for allowing me to illustrate my paper with blocks made from the admirable photographs which they took of the carvings before they left their studio.

The remaining articles are perhaps of rather more technical character. That on the font at HoIt was written at the request of my friend Mr. John Paul RyIands, F.S.A., for the Historic Society of Lancashire and Cheshire. My best thanks are due to that Society for their permission to republish it, and to Messrs. Ballantyne, Hanson Company for the loan of the blocks that illustrate it.
