Bonn: [Carl Georgi for] Adolph Marcus, 1849. First edition. xiv, [2], [1]-464pp. Facsimile folding map accompanies the book. Black leather over cloth boards with gilt spine titles and four raised bands. Moderate wear and rubbing to the binding. Spine recased. Small stamp to verso of title page. Some foxing throughout. All in all, a very good copy of a scarce edition.

    "This is one of the first scientific investigations of Texas made by someone qualified to do so...J. Frank Dobie states that 'Roemer saw more and told about it in a livelier and more diverting way than any brace of other travelers between Cabeza de Vaca and Frederick Law Olmsted'" (Jenkins, Basic Texas Books). "[T]he father of Texas geology" (Howes).

    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.
