    More Information: Alice Hargreaves (1852-1934) was one of ten children born to Henry Liddell, Dean of Christ Church, Oxford. Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (Lewis Carroll's real name) was a family friend of the Liddells, and Alice was a photography subject of Dodgson's. Legend has it that Dodgson invented Alice's Adventures in Wonderland for her whilst on a boating trip.

    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.
