abstract
Under the sponsorship of The Bibliographical Society of London in conjunction with the University of Toronto Library, the British Armorial Binding database is being developed as a comprehensive catalogue of all the coats of arms, crests, and other heraldic devices that have been stamped by British owners on the outer covers of their books, together with the bibliographical sources of the stamps.  The armorial database describes over 3300 stamps belonging to close to 1900 owners, both individual and institutional. Over 12,000 sources for the stamps are cited.
