Title: The Flag of the United States and Other National Flags
Medium: book
Main author(s): George Henry Preble
Edition (publisher: place): A. William and Company: (unknown location) (United States)
Language: English
Edition date: 1880 (2nd ed.)
Pages: 815

Full title: History of the flag of the United States of America, and of the naval and yacht-club signals, seals, and arms, and principal national songs of the United States with a chronicle of the symbols, standards, banners, and flags of ancient and modern nations

Preble’s work is widely known; each edition had a slightly different title (in some cases, the version on the title page was different from the version on the cover of the same book!) The 1880 edition is usually regarded as definitive.
Peter Ansoff, 29 Jul 2007

The 1880 edition was an expanded version of the 1872 edition, not just a reprint. The above title was what was on the cover of the 1880 edition. However, the title on the title page was: History of the Flag of the United States of America, and of the Naval and Yacht-Club Signals, Seals and Arms, and Principal National Songs of the United States, With a Chronicle of the Symbols, Standards, Banners and Flags of Ancient and Modern Nations. Which was actually incomplete (!), because the book covered state flags and flags of the Confederacy also.

Title: The Symbols, Standards, Flags, and Banners of Ancient and Modern Nations.
Medium: book
Main author(s): George Henry Preble
Edition (publisher: place): The Flag Research Center (United States)
Language: English
Edition date: 1980 (1st ed.)
Pages: 156
Format: 8½×5½ ″

Remarks: Photographic reproduction of the 1880 [pre80] or 1882 [pre82] edition.

It appears to be a photographic reproduction, but since it is only 156 pages long it must be of only a portion of Preble’s book. The last page mentions events which happened in 1878 and cites a newspaper account which appeared in 1880, so it is obviously not from the original, 1872, edition [pre72].
Ned Smith, 25 Aug 1999

This edition of the Preble book probably includes only the section on foreign flags. It must be either the 2nd [pre80] or 3rd ed. [pre82].

This book deals in details with every municipality’s symbols, including a large image of each coat of arms, photos and drawings of previously used arms if available and detailed history of each of the coat of arms (in German only). The flags or rather the municipalities colours (farben) are mentioned only if they are mentioned in the arms’s adoption legislation, and that is case as a rule only for the armss adopted after 1987. There is no rule as to how the colours are to be divided on the flag, and the book gives a chart of about two dozen possibilities of field division.
