    John Quincy Adams Eulogy of James Monroe Signed and inscribed to "Deacon Samuel Savil/From J.Q. Adams," 100 pages, 6" x 9.5". Boston: J.H. Eastburn, City Printer, 1831. Bound with string. Paper wrappers. Signed on the cover. Adams and Savil were members of the First Congregational (Unitarian) Church in Braintree, Massachusetts. Titled "An Eulogy: on the Life and Character of James Monroe, Fifth President of the United States, Delivered at the Request of the Corporation of the City of Boston, on the 25th of August, 1831. By John Quincy Adams." The lightly foxed cover page is loose and the upper right corner is missing. There are several creased page corners with some paper loss. Otherwise, very good. John Quincy Adams served as James Monroe's only Secretary of State from 1817-1825, then succeeded him as the sixth President of the United States (1825-1829).

    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.
