This is a reissue of Falkner's novel, first published in 1903. Edward Westray, a young architect, is sent to the remote Dorset town to supervise the restoration of the ancient abbey church where he stumbles into a murder mystery provoked by claims to the local title of Lord Blandamer, whose coat of arms is the nebuly coat of the title. The novel follows Westray's embroilment in the motivation for the murder. It includes details of ecclesiastical architecture, heraldry and ancient music. There is a chronology of Falkner and an introduction by Christopher Hawtree with explanatory notes on the text.
