    Franklin D. Roosevelt Drawings of Floor Plans. Two fascinating architectural floor-plans drawn by Roosevelt in 1928. The first, one page, 8.5" x 11", in pencil, is likely a plan for a cottage bought by his mother, Sara, who was a dominant influence in Roosevelt's early life. His father, James, had died in 1900. Two file holes; age-toned with horizontal crease in the middle of the page; near fine. The second, one page, 11.5" x 9.75", in pencil but with many annotations in ink, is thought to be the draft floor-plan of Franklin's future Warm's Spring, Georgia, home, "Little White House", where he died in 1945. The plan is greatly detailed with room dimensions, window and door locations in pencil and the position of base plugs, wall brackets, and lighting details in black ink. Toned with four file holes at the top and slight marginal fraying on the left. Near fine. An excellent addition to any Roosevelt 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.
