Bibliographies and book reviews

This section aims at giving researchers and students a few bibliographic informations concerning heraldry and sigillography, either french or international.
For heraldry, the bibliographic reference work is Michel Popoff’s book (Bibliographie héraldique internationale, Paris, Le Léopard d’Or, 2003). The author kindly provided our website with a free on-line and updated version of this publication (1.46 Mo – 433 pages – last update : may 2008).
Regarding sigillography, the reference work is René Gandilhon and Michel Pastoureau’s book (Bibliographie de la sigillographie française, Paris, Picard, 1981). It is completed by Martine Dalas and Jean-Luc Chassel’s publications “Bibliographie de la sigillographie française. 1982-1986” (in the Revue française d’héraldique et de sigillographie, t. 54-59, 1984-1989, p. 237-268) and “…1986-1991” (ibidem, t. 60-61, 1990-1991, p. 255-281).
