chap1sec7Sect. VII. Of Lines with their diverse Forms.

ALL Ordinaries are suppos'd to be made of a strait Line; therefore when they are composed of a crooked one, you are to take particular Care to mention such Crookedness by a proper Appellation.

The following Scheme contains such Forms of Lines as are used in Heraldry, with their proper Names against them, viz.

Inveck'd
Ingrail'd'.
Wavy.
Nebule.
Crenelle.
Indented.
Dancette.

The Lines Indented and Dancette do not differ in Form, but Quantity; the last being much larger and deeper than the other.
