    English illustrator, Thomas Heath Robinson (1869-1954), illustrated children's books such as, The King's Sons, Child's Book of Saints, The Mad Hatter, and William Tell. He also did illustrations for The Strand Magazine. Although he was never as revered as his brothers Charles Heath Robinson and William Heath Robinson, he still had a successful career in art. The Chronicles of Addington Peace were six detective short stories, written by Bertram F. Robinson and published in The Lady's Home Magazine between August 1904 and January 1905.

    The illustrations have varying degrees of toning, soiling and foxing. With chipping and wear to the mat and corners. Good.

    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.
