Description

    A Journal of the Honorable House of Representatives. At a Great and General Court or Assembly for the Colony of Massachusetts-Bay in New England. March 13 to May 10, 1776 (Boston: Edes and Gill, 1776), first edition, 277 pages, untrimmed buckram, re-bound in leather (1969) with gold lettering and decorations, folio (9" x 14.75"). This rare volume documents the affairs of the Massachusetts Bay House of Representatives-including petitions, speeches, and reports on Indian activities-during a period in which Revolutionary goings-on continued to escalate throughout Boston. Among the more famous names is Paul Revere, mentioned on pages 105 and 275. There are extensive later notes written (in pencil) on the front endpapers, as well as handwritten notes (on legal-pad-size paper) inserted into (but not attached to) the book. The paper is in overall good condition with darkening and some foxing due to its age. The binding is in very good condition with only minor wear along the spine.

    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.
