The album Kongeriket Danmarks Byvaabener was issued around 1933. It is not sure when it was issued. Due to the similar text in the back of the album as in the Norwegian album, it is most likely published around the same time in the early 1930s. In a brochure for the German albums from 1935 it is mentioned that the book on Denmark was already published. It was printed at the Nordlundes Bogtrykkeri in Copenhagen.
The author is also not known, although Poul Bredo Grandjean has been mentioned as author. Poul Bredo Grandjean published two other heraldic books between 1920-40 and was considered the most esteemed heraldicist of the country in those days.
The album contains only the arms of towns. The stamps were issued in 8 sheets of 18 stamps each, with an additional 5 stamps with advertising. As far as I know there have been no plans to issue a second album with personal arms.
Unlike some other albums, there is no text on the back of the stamps.
