    More Information: Eight Lithographs Featuring Scenes From Perry's Expedition to Japan. From Narrative of the Expedition of an American Squadron to the China Seas and Japan, Performed in the Years 1852, 1853, and 1854 Under the Command of Commodore M. C. Perry, United States Navy, by Order of the Government of the United States, Volume II, Washington: Beverly Tucker, Senate Printer, 1856. Eight beautiful lithographs measuring 11.25 inches x 9 inches depicting scenes from Commodore Perry's naval expedition to Japan, 1852-54. These plates illustrate a variety of scenes including a Japanese junk, the steam frigate Mississippi, Chinese temple at Macao,  and other scenes.

Once framed these illustrations would be an excellent addition to the décor of any home, office or school.

    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.
