    Description

    1846 Hand-colored Print - United States at One View Offered here is an oversized (22" x 30") print showing all sorts of figures and statistics about the United States in its 70th year, produced by Humphrey Phelps of New York, copyright 1845. It really does show some interesting information such as: Population by state and by census; Population of 150 Principal Cities; Principal Railroads and Canals; Reminiscences of the 1776 Revolution; Principal Rivers and Mountains; Religious Denominations; Presidents of the United States; Indians; Distance Chart; and Earth Population. This compendium of fabulous and fascinating facts also has decorative borders, engraved images of the American Eagle, Continental currency and a $50 note as well as descriptions of Oregon and Texas at the bottom. About Texas, it states (in small part) "The climate is generally mild and healthy, presenting an alternate Spring and Summer. The face of the country is generally level..." Near fine condition with mild soiling, a few border tears and crinkles have been repaired by backing with muslin. Great item, perfect for framing and display.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
