Coat of Arms

Abraham Cowley (1618-1667), "Of Agriculture," Works (London: Printed by J.M. for Henry Herringman, 1681), pp. 129-139 (at 133):
We may talke what we please of Lilies, and Lions Rampant, and Spread-Eagles in Fields d'Or, or d'Argent; But if Heraldry were guided by Reason, a Plough in a field Arable, would be the most Noble and Antient Armes.

Isaak Levitan, Evening in the Field
