I found this book while at a tattoo shop. Pleased to say that this book has a mind blowing set of over 1300 signs, symbols, seals and a host of other interesting drawings. All are collectively categorized and charted by number so they are very easy to reference and cross reference. I eventually ended up purchasing the book for my personal library.
Great book if your into historical means of communication by right of symbolism.

This book is all about the symbols and icons. Loads of great imagery but I hate, absolutely HATE, the way it is laid out. The information tag about each symbol is listed at the beginning of the chapter and then pages of images follow, so you have to keep flipping back and forth to see what you are looking at. Very annoying.

A "image" book showing the varying symbols, signs and signets including astronomy, astrology, alchemy, magic, heraldry, watermarks and even cattle brands and hobo signs. Only the symbol and the name of it is given, not a description, but still worth a browse. Good for reference material.
