Harper, 1895. The "New Edition", limited to 1150 total copies (150 on hand-made paper; 1000 on fine paper) of which this copy is hand-numbered 728. Three 8vo. volumes. cxiii, 356; vi, 357-855; 857-955. Frontispiece. With five of the six folding maps/charts as called for - missing "Map of the Internal Provinces of New Spain". Original green cloth with titles stamped in gilt on the spine. Edges untrimmed. All volumes with trivial shelf wear mainly in the form of bumped corners. Front hinge broken in Volume I with loose front board; rear hinge starting with a few taped repairs and detached title page. Volume II hinges are slightly tender. Contents of all volumes toned and slightly brittle along the page edges. Otherwise, a very good set.

    Considered by scholars to be superior to the original 1810 edition due to the added annotations and appended documents.

    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.
