    More Information: Eight Steel Engravings of Distinguished American Presidents From the National Portrait Gallery. From The National Portrait Gallery of Distinguished Americans With Biographical Sketches, in four volumes, Philadelphia: D. Rice & A. N. Hart, 1859. Each plate measures 7.25 inches x 10.5 inches. Each subject portrait is engraved by some of America's finest engravers of the mid-19th century after images held in the National Portrait Gallery. The group includes Martin Van Buren, Millard Fillmore, W. H. Harrison, James Monroe, James Madison, James Polk, Franklin Pierce, and Zachary Taylor. Each portrait features a facsimile of the subject's signature below the portrait. The paper has toned a bit and there is some occasional light foxing at the edges, but by and large the engravings are clean and in very good condition. These portraits, once framed and matted would make an attractive addition to the d├ęcor of any home, school, or office.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
