    "Around 1850 the German American novel developed with the arrival of German Forty-Eighters, who were busy editing newspapers and writing fiction and nonfiction. [...] Slavery repeatedly turned out to be [a] site of conflict in the predominantly antislavery novels. It also triggered the counter image of a harmonious coexistence of German immigrants and freed slaves in Georg Willrich's Erinnerungen aus Texas (Memoirs of Texas, 1854)" (Annette Bühler-Dietrich, in Germany and Americans).

    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.
