    Charlotte Perkins Gilman Autograph Letter Signed. Two pages, 4.75" x 7.75", 179 W. 76th St [New York], April 8, 1902, to Mrs. Hitchcock. Interesting personal content, in part: "...I will call on you tomorrow morning, I being allowed to go out freely, with proper precautions, but not feeling that I can ask people in here freely, at present. And even so, if you feel nervous, just come out and take a walk with me - that will be safe enough." Gilman (1860-1935) was an American writer, poet, feminist, and ardent advocate of women's suffrage. Many of her numerous writings, both fiction and non-fiction, are still read and considered relevant today. Fine with original flattened folds and mounting traces on verso. From the Judith Kaplan Women's History Collection.

    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.
