    Connelley, William E.: FIFTY YEARS IN KANSAS: A BRIEF SKETCH OF THE LIFE OF GEORGE W. MARTIN, SECRETARY OF THE KANSAS STATE HISTORICAL SOCIETY. [Topeka: 1907]. 12mo, 50pp, original staples, lightly worn original printed wrappers, photos, Very Good. Connelley, a well-known historian, had written on Doniphan's expedition and Quantrill. Martin knew everyone in Kansas during the great strife of the 1850's, and in 1861 founded the Junction City Union, "a newspaper that exercised a greater influence on Kansas politics than any other weekly ever established in the State." He was later the Register of the Land Office, first removed by Andrew Johnson and then reinstated by Grant. Perhaps most important, he "was one of the founders of the State Historical Society." FIRST EDITION.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
