For scholars of Beleriand and beyond: These are emblems and heraldry created by Tolkien and eventually published as "Pictures By J.R.R. Tolkien," in 1979. Each emblem pertains to a house of one of the races of Middle-Earth, a kingdom, or to a notable individual. You may notice certain similarities among the emblem designs within family groups. Actually, I arranged the picture somewhat by blood relationships, and to a certain extent top to bottom correlates as oldest to youngest. Plenty of time should be allotted for the hopefully minor scrolling.
