    George O. Smith: Venus Equilateral Signed First Edition. (Philadelphia: The Prime Press, 1947), first edition, 455 pages, red cloth with black lettering on spine, 12mo (5.75" x 7.75"), three dust jackets: two of first state (one stamped $3.00 on front flap), one of second state (all in same protective Mylar). Book illustrated by Sol Levin. First state dust jacket illustrated by George O. Smith; second state dust jacket illustrated by Robert Tschirky. Two different designs for the dust jacket exist because booksellers found the first state jacket design confusing to their customers. The author's signature, "George O. Smith", is on the front free endpaper. The copy presented here is in fine condition, with no noticeable flaws to the book. One of the first state dust jackets is worn; the other two dust jackets are fine. A scarce opportunity to obtain Venus Equilateral with both of its dust jacket designs, and possibly one state of dust jacket never seen before. From the Ventura Collection.

    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.
