      "Reviewer: Michael K. Smith from Baton Rouge, LA
      Begun by George E. Cokayne, the Clarenceaux King-of-Arms, this set is tothe British peerage what the Oxford English Dictionary is to the Englishlanguage -- absolutely the best thing of its kind. Citations to primarysources frequently fill 3/4 of the page and anecdotal text-notes put somemeat on the bones. Far superior to the 19th century Burke's Peeragepublications. Don't attempt serious British research without it! Thenumerous appendices at the ends of the volumes also are highlyrecommended as instructive essays."
