    Description

    Margaret Mitchell Typed Letter Twice Signed. One page, 7" x 10.75", Atlanta, Georgia; August 8, 1939. Writing to a Mrs. Whitfield, the American author expresses her concerns about potential copyright infringement: "As to the character dolls of 'Scarlett' which you would like to make, I believe it would be a good idea for you to write the motion picture people about this....they might consider that the dolls you propose to make would trespass on their rights." Signed "Margaret Mitchell Marsh", adding a second signature beneath, "Mrs. John R. Marsh". With a lengthy holograph post script: "Last year I had a charming letter from a Jackson girl, Marina Whitfield Alexander. If she is a relative of yours, please give her my regards." Flattened folds and just a touch of toning.

    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.
