    Ten 6.75 x 9 (and 9 x 6.75) inch photo-etched illustrations tipped-on to the original 11 x 14 (and 14 x 11) inch stiff backing sheets. Mounted at the bottom of each backing sheet is the printed text description excised from the original tissue overlay that provides the novel, scene and artist. Ex-library stamps are stamped unobtrusively at the lower right corner of each backing sheet, one example moderately toned, otherwise the illustrations are in near fine condition and perfect for matting and framing to enhance the décor 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.
