    Three Vintage Chinese Railway Maps. An important group of maps showing the great railroads that influenced the course of Far Eastern economic, military, and social history for most of the 20th century. Included are the following:
    Railway Map of China, 16.5" x 19", by Paul P. Whitham, for U.S. Department of Commerce, Bureau of Foreign & Domestic Commerce, New York, 1918. Existing and proposed roads are drawn for a vast territory stretching from Russian Siberia to Burma and Vietnam.
    Railway Map of North China, 20.25" x 17", "compiled by J.V.A MacMurray from the Russian Government map of the ways of communication of Asiatic Russia (1911) and other sources, and drawn by Mr. Y.Y. Wu under the supervision of Mr. Murray Sullivan of the Chuchow-Chinchow Railway Administration", New York, 1918. The title of this map is deceptive in that it also shows the rail lines of Korea and Japan.
    Peking-Mukden Railway and Connections, 33.25" x 22.75",n.p., October, 1922. A huge bi-lingual English-Chinese production showing each stop along this important railway.
    All maps have original folds and are lightly toned. One map has a small push that could be repaired easily.

    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.
